Aryl trifluoromethoxylation by a two-step sequence of O-trifluoromethylation of N-aryl-N-hydroxylamine derivatives and intramolecular OCF3  migration is presented. This protocol allows easy access to a wide range of synthetically useful ortho-OCF3 aniline derivatives. In addition, it utilizes bench-stable reagents, is operationally simple, shows high(More)
Since the first synthesis of trifluoromethyl ethers in 1935, the trifluoromethoxy (OCF3) group has made a remarkable impact in medicinal, agrochemical, and materials science research. However, our inability to facilely incorporate the OCF3 group into molecules, especially heteroaromatics, has limited its potential across a broad spectrum of technological(More)
CO2-responsiveness is imported into amphiphilic block copolymers, poly[(N,N-diethylaminoethyl methacrylate)-b-(N-isopropylacrylamide)] (PDEAEMA-b-PNIPAM), and a system dual-responsive to CO2 and temperature is constructed. The copolymer self-assembles in aqueous solution, and undergoes phase transition when CO2 and temperature stimuli occur, since the(More)
Nanocellulose extracted from wood pulps using TEMPO (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl radical)-mediated oxidation and sulfuric acid hydrolysis methods was characterized by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), and dynamic light scattering (DLS) techniques. The dimensions of this nanocellulose (TEMPO-oxidized(More)
