A new era for homolytic aromatic substitution: replacing Bu3SnH with efficient light-induced chain reactions
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04-01)
Herein is a pertinent review of recent photochemical homolytic aromatic substitution (HAS) literature. Issues with using the reductant Bu3SnH in an oxidative process where the net loss of a hydrogen atom occurs is discussed. ...
Anisotropy resolved multidimensional emission spectroscopy (ARMES): A new tool for protein analysis
Structural analysis of proteins using the emission of intrinsic fluorophores is complicated by spectral overlap. Anisotropy resolved multidimensional emission spectroscopy (ARMES) overcame the overlap problem by the use ...
Liquid-crystal-mediated force between a cylindrical nanoparticle and substrate
(American Physical Society, 2007-10-25)
Using classical density functional theory, the structure of a molecular fluid around a cylindrical nanoparticle near a solid substrate is studied. The solvent-mediated force between the nanoparticle and the substrate is ...
Glycoclusters as lectin inhibitors: comparative analysis on two plant agglutinins with different folding as a step towards rules for selectivity
The emerging physiological significance of carbohydrate (glycan) protein (lectin) recognition engenders the interest to design synthetic inhibitors with a high level of selectivity among natural sugar receptors. Plant ...
RAFT polymerization in supercritical carbon dioxide based on an induced precipitation approach: synthesis of 2-ethoxyethyl methacrylate/acrylamide block copolymers
A new controlled/living heterogeneous polymerization technique using RAFT in benign supercritical CO2 is described involving the formation of monomer-swollen seed particles by precipitation of macroRAFT agent prior to ...
Synthesis of fluorinated alkoxyamines and alkoxyamine-initiated nitroxide-mediated precipitation polymerizations of styrene in supercritical carbon dioxide
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-06-20)
TIPNO (2,2,5-trimethyl-4-phenyl-3-azahexane-3-nitroxide)-alkoxyamine was found to give reasonably controlled/living nitroxide-mediated (NMP) precipitation polymerizations of styrene in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)). ...
Chain transfer to solvent in the radical polymerization of structurally diverse acrylamide monomers using straight-chain and branched alcohols as solvents
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-01-02)
Chain transfer to solvent in conventional radical polymerizations of N-tert-butylacrylamide (TBAM) and N-(2-morpholin-4-ylethyl) acrylamide (MEA) in a range of alcohol solvents is investigated. Mayo analysis of polymerization ...
Additive tuning redox potential in metallacarboranes by sequencial halogen substitution
The first artificially made set of electron acceptors is presented that are derived from a unique platform Cs[3,3′-Co(C2B9H11)2], for which the redox potential of each differs from its predecessor by a fixed amount. The ...
A discrete P⋅⋅⋅I I⋅⋅⋅P assembly: the large influence of weak interactions on the 31P NMR Spectra of Phosphane–Diiodine Complexes
Seeing I to I: The reaction of a weakly coordinating carboranyl phosphane ligand with I2 leads to the formation of an adduct containing the bridging P⋅⋅⋅I[BOND]I⋅⋅⋅P assembly in the solid state (see picture; I purple, P ...
A convenient synthetic route to useful monobranched polyethoxylated halogen terminated [3,3 -Co(1,2-C2B9H11)2]- synthons
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009-11-15)
An atom efficient and environmentally friendly route has been developed to obtain a new range of reagents in metallacarborane chemistry having monobranched polyethoxylated cobaltabisdicarbollide synthons.
