Fluorinated materials synthesis and characterization for energy storage and energy conversion applications
Author(s):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, ...
Studies toward the total synthesis of microsclerodermin G
Author(s):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. ...
Use of coordinating solvents in gold cluster synthesis, The
Author(s):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 ...
Progress toward the synthesis of providencin
Author(s):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 ...
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 ...
Application of new methodology to complex molecule synthesis: studies toward the synthesis of pordamacrine A and liphagal, The
Author(s):Seizert, Curtis A.
The coevolution of organic synthesis and methodology has contributed greatly to the growth of both fields. This has been enabled by the invention of new methods during the prosecution of a synthesis in order to solve ...
