The π-π stacking interaction between lumiflavin and a number of π-electron-rich molecules has been studied by density functional theory using several new-generation density functionals. Six known lumiflavin-aromatic adducts were used and the models were evaluated by comparing the geometry and energetics with experimental results. The study found that(More)
Visible-light irradiation of 4-p-methoxyphenyl-3-butenylthioglucoside donors in the presence of Umemoto's reagent and alcohol acceptors serves as a mild approach to O-glycosylation. Visible-light photocatalysts are not required for activation, and alkyl- and arylthioglycosides not bearing the p-methoxystyrene are inert to these conditions. Experimental and(More)
