Copper(II) complexes of three linear unsymmetrical tridentate ligands viz. N-methyl-N'-(pyrid-2-ylmethyl)ethylenediamine (L1), N,N-dimethyl-N'-(pyrid-2-ylmethyl)ethylenediamine (L2) and N,N-dimethyl-N'-((6-methyl)pyrid-2-ylmethyl)ethylenediamine (L3) have been isolated and characterized by elemental analysis, electronic absorption and EPR spectroscopy and(More)
A current goal in synthetic chemistry is the design and synthesis of molecules that adopt well defined conformations-so called foldamers. In this manuscript we describe a modular approach for construction of rod shaped para-oligobenzamide molecules. Our approach permits regiospecific incorporation of side chains through a phenolic ether linkage on the(More)
H-Phosphinic acid and pyruvic acid, both plausible prebiotic chemicals, react selectively in water to build structural complexity including amide bond formation under remarkably mild conditions and oxidative coupling of P(1) compounds to condensed pyrophosphorus compounds.
Microwave assisted indirect functionalization of alcohols with 1,3-dimethylbarbituric acid followed by spirocyclisation employing a sequential one-pot Ir(III)/Pd(0) catalysed process, involving the formation of three new C-C bonds, one spirocyclic ring and one di- or tri-substituted exocyclic alkene, is described.
The syntheses of 2,6-bis(4-chloropyrazol-1-yl)pyridine (L1), 2,6-bis(4-bromopyrazol-1-yl)pyridine (L2) and 2,6-bis(4-iodopyrazol-1-yl)pyridine (L3) by electrophilic halogenation of 2,6-bis(pyrazol-1-yl)pyridine are reported. The complex [Fe(L1)2][BF4]2 crystallises in two different solvent-free polymorphs. The tetragonal (alpha) form crystallises in a known(More)
B(10)H(14) reacts with para-C(6)H(4)(CHO)(COOH) in aqueous KOH solution to give the [nido-6-CB(9)H(11)-6-(C(6)H(4)-para-COOH)](-) anion 1, which undergoes cage closure with iodine in alkaline solution to give the [closo-2-CB(9)H(9)-2-(C(6)H(4)-para-COOH)](-) anion 2. Upon heating, anion 2 rearranges to form the [closo-1-CB(9)H(9)-1-(C(6)H(4)-para-COOH)](-)(More)
The conformation of a bisindolylmaleimide may be controlled by the size of a macrocyclic ring in which it is constrained. A range of techniques were used to demonstrate that the tether controls both the ratio of the two limiting conformers (syn and anti) in solution and the extent of conjugation between the maleimide and indole rings. Screening the(More)
