Fluorescence enhancement of a broad variety of solutes has been used extensively in TLC although no thorough explanation has been proposed. In this work, we try to understand it and explore new applications to which it can be put. In this way, alkanes can be quantitatively determined by fluorescence scanning densitometry using silica gel plates impregnated(More)
The ability of laser vibrometers to receive and process acoustic echoes from the water surface above a submerged target is established and evaluated. Sonar echoes from a submerged target are collected from the water surface by a laser vibrometer. Feasibility of this approach to sensing underwater sound is demonstrated. If the acoustic excitation at an(More)
Alkanes in the presence of berberine sulfate provide an enhancement of fluorescent signal, which depends on alkane concentration and structure, when the system is irradiated with monochromatic UV light. Computational analysis suggests that an ion-induced dipole between alkanes and berberine sulfate is responsible for this phenomenon. This interaction can(More)
Efficient 1,4-asymmetric induction has been achieved in the highly stereocontrolled intramolecular [2 + 2] cycloadditions between ketenimines and imines, leading to 1,2-dihydroazeto[2, 1-b]quinazolines. The chiral methine carbon adjacent to the iminic nitrogen controls the exclusive formation of the cycloadducts with relative trans configuration at C2 and(More)
In this work the performance of a prototype of electronic nose, developed in our laboratories, to assess fish freshness is analized. The present study is part of an ongoing project to perform quality assurance protocols for the Argentine fish sector, an increasing demand due to export reasons and new national food control regulations. Fish quality is a(More)
Highly stereocontrolled, intramolecular [2 + 2] cycloadditions between ketenimines and imines leading to 1,2-dihydroazeto[2, 1-b]quinazolines have been achieved. The source of stereocontrol is a chiral carbon atom adjacent either to the iminic carbon or nitrogen atom. In the first case, the stereocontrol stems from the preference for the axial conformer in(More)
