We demonstrate an organic molecule with an energy gap between its singlet and triplet excited states of almost zero (ΔE(ST) ∼ 0 eV). Such separation was realized through proper combination of an electron-donating indolocarbazole group and a diphenyltriazine electron-accepting moiety. Calculated and measured ΔE(ST) were 0.003 and 0.02 eV, respectively. A(More)
Rare earth metal trifluoromethanesulfonates [rare earth metal triflate, RE(OTf)3] were found to be efficient catalyst for benzyl-etherification. In the presence of a catalytic amount of RE(OTf)3, condensation of benzyl alcohols and aliphatic alcohols proceeded smoothly to afford the benzyl ethers. The condensation between benzyl alcohols and thiols also(More)
The rare earth metal(III) trifluoromethanesulfonate (rare earth metal(III) triflate, RE(OTf)3) was found to be an efficient catalyst for aromatic nitration with carboxylic anhydride-inorganic nitrate as the nitrating agent. In the presence of a catalytic amount of RE(OTf)3, the nitration of substituted benzenes proceeded to afford the corresponding(More)
