Tremendous advances have been made in nickel catalysis over the past decade. Several key properties of nickel, such as facile oxidative addition and ready access to multiple oxidation states, have allowed the development of a broad range of innovative reactions. In recent years, these properties have been increasingly understood and used to perform(More)
Virginia Tech Department of Music’s Digital Interactive Sound & Intermedia Studio in collaboration with the College of Engineering and School of Visual Arts presents the latest addition to the *Ork family, the Linux Laptop Orchestra. Apart from maintaining compatibility with its precursors and sources of inspiration, Princeton’s PLOrk, and Stanford’s SLOrk,(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the air-stable nickel(II) complex trans-(PCy(2)Ph)(2)Ni(o-tolyl)Cl is described in conjunction with an investigation of its use for the Mizoroki-Heck-type, room temperature, internally selective coupling of substituted benzyl chlorides with terminal alkenes. This reaction, which employs a terminal alkene as an(More)
Nickel(0) catalysts have proven to be powerful tools for multicomponent coupling reactions in our laboratories over the past 15 years. This interest was originally sparked by the ubiquity of allylic alcohol motifs in natural products, such as (-)-terpestacin, which we envisioned assembling by the coupling of two π components (alkyne and aldehyde) with(More)
Herein is reported the catalytic, visible light-promoted, decarboxylative halogenation (bromination, chlorination, and iodination) of aliphatic carboxylic acids. This operationally-simple reaction tolerates a range of functional groups, proceeds at room temperature, and is redox neutral. By employing an iridium photocatalyst in concert with a halogen atom(More)
A model for the propagation of high amplitude continuous sound through hard-backed rigid-porous layers has been developed which allows for Forchheimer's correction to Darcy's law. The nonlinearity associated with this is shown to be particularly important in the range of frequencies around layer resonance. The model is based on the introduction of particle(More)
Treatment of Zn(II) and Cd(II) hydroxide complexes of the tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine (TPA) ligand with COS or CS2 in protic solvents (MeOH or EtOH) resulted in [(TPA)Zn–SC(S)OCH3]ClO4 (1), [(TPA)Zn– SC(O)OCH3]BF4 (2), [(TPA)Zn–SC(O)OCH3]ClO4 (3), [(TPA)Zn–SC(O)OCH2CH3]BF4 (4), [(TPA)Cd– SC(S)OCH3]ClO4 (5) and [(TPA)Cd–SC(O)OCH3]ClO4 (6). The molecular(More)
Herein, we report the first ligand-controlled, nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling of aliphatic N-tosylaziridines with aliphatic organozinc reagents. The reaction protocol displays complete regioselectivity for reaction at the less hindered C-N bond, and the products are furnished in good to excellent yield for a broad selection of substrates. Moreover, we have(More)
The Revo:oveR installation is a collection of six co-located installations exploring multimodal interaction, self-evolving aural and visual fabric, integration of architectural space, and the notion of communal art. The interactive aural communal soundscape Elemental and one of the two physical sculptures titled Cyrene Reefs exhibited at NIME 2009 can be(More)
A series of air-stable nickel complexes of the form L2Ni(aryl) X (L = monodentate phosphine, X = Cl, Br) and LNi(aryl)X (L = bis-phosphine) have been synthesized and are presented as a library of precatalysts suitable for a wide variety of nickel-catalyzed transformations. These complexes are easily synthesized from low-cost NiCl2·6H2O or NiBr2·3H2O and the(More)
