Progress toward the synthesis of providencin
Contributor:Stevens, Sarah Jean
Providencin, a highly oxygenated diterpene, was isolated from the sea plume Pseudopterogorgia kallos in 2003 by Rodriguez and co-workers. Providencin was revealed to be a cembrane-based diterpene containing an unprecedented ...
Fluorinated materials synthesis and characterization for energy storage and energy conversion applications
Contributor:Bukovsky, Eric V.
The synthesis and characterization of multiple fluorinated, p-block, cage, and organic compounds will be presented. The research effort is split up in to main topics, (i) fluorinated superweak anions based on B12 cages, ...
Use of coordinating solvents in gold cluster synthesis, The
Contributor:Compel, W. Scott
Monolayer-protected clusters (MPCs) are nanoparticles ca. 1-3 nm in diameter composed of a metal core and an organic monolayer shell. In this size range MPCs are larger than metal-ligand complexes but too small to exhibit ...
N-heterocyclic carbene catalyzed α-redox reaction : catalytic synthesis of amides and carboxylic acids
N-heterocyclic carbene catalyzed α-redox reaction has been utilized towards the catalytic synthesis of amides utilizing amines and substoichiometric quantities of an acyl transfer reagent in a waste reduced acylation ...
Studies toward the total synthesis of microsclerodermin G
Contributor:Burnett, Cameron Moeller
We report our studies toward the synthesis of microsclerodermin G, a cyclic hexapeptide with antifungal and antitumor activity. The dehydrotryptophan amino acid was synthesized according to literature precedents. ...
