Photochemical reactions employing TiO2 and carboxylic acids under dry anaerobic conditions led to several types of C-C bond-forming processes with electron-deficient alkenes. The efficiency of alkylation varied appreciably with substituents in the carboxylic acids. The reactions of aryloxyacetic acids with maleimides resulted in a cascade process in which a(More)
The interaction of short optical pulses with laser cavity modes is important in, for example, formation of mode-locked pulse trains, optical clock recovery, and external optical feedback [1]. In a dispersive nonlinear medium such as a semiconductor, a treatment of the optical field is required which goes beyond discrete modal frequencies. A description of(More)
