Tetrathiafulvalene end-functionalized poly(N-isopropylacrylamide): a new class of amphiphilic polymer for the creation of multistimuli responsive micelles.
In this article, we report the formation of micelles from a tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) end-functionalized poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (poly(NIPAM)) derivative (1). We have determined the criticalExpand
Hydrogen bonding in redox-modulated molecular recognition. An experimental and theoretical investigation.
Two receptors, a diaminotriazine derivative (DAT) and diamidopyridine (DAP), are complementary to the electroactive naphthalimide (N) through three-point hydrogen bonding. The association constantsExpand
Facile synthesis of metal-free organic dyes featuring a thienylethynyl spacer for dye sensitized solar cells
In this article, we report the facile synthesis of metal-free dyes 6 and 7, their solution-based optical and redox properties and their use as sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). OurExpand
Soluble polymer-supported organocatalysts: asymmetric reduction of imines with trichlorosilane catalyzed by an amino acid derived formamide anchored to a soluble polymer.
In the development of an efficient catalytic process, facile separation of the product from the catalyst is one of the key technological elements. In organocatalysis, where both the product and theExpand
Chiral Plasmonic Fields Probe Structural Order of Biointerfaces
The structural order of biopolymers, such as proteins, at interfaces defines the physical and chemical interactions of biological systems with their surroundings and is hence a critical parameter inExpand
Large crystalline domains and enhanced exciton diffusion length enable efficient organic solar cells
We studied crystallinity and exciton harvesting in bulk heterojunctions of the semiconducting polymer PffBT4T-2OD and electron acceptor PC71BM that are used to make highly efficient organic solarExpand
An investigation of the roles furan versus thiophene π-bridges play in donor-π-acceptor porphyrin based DSSCs.
Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) continue to attract interest due to their lower cost production compared to silicon based solar cells and their improving power conversion efficiencies.Expand
Probing the solvent-induced tautomerism of a redox-active ureidopyrimidinone.
A ferrocene-functionalised ureidopyrimidinone has been synthesised that can signal the solvent-induced tautomerism of the dimeric 4[1H]-pyrimidinone form to the monomeric 6[1H]-pyrimidinone form.
Highly stable tetrathiafulvalene radical dimers in [3]catenanes.
Two [3]catenane 'molecular flasks' have been designed to create stabilized, redox-controlled tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) dimers, enabling their spectrophotometric and structural properties to be probedExpand
Methods of modulating hydrogen bonded interactions in synthetic host-guest systems.
Hydrogen bonded interactions are among the most important non-covalent interactions in supramolecular chemistry. The strength, selectivity and directionality inherent in hydrogen bonding processesExpand
