The amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD) comprise fibrillar amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides as well as non-protein factors including glycosaminoglycan (GAG) polysaccharides. GAGs affect the kinetics and pathway of Aβ self-assembly and can impede fibril clearance; thus, they may be accessory molecules in AD. Here we report the first(More)
A series of custom-designed, high yield, isoskeletal tetranuclear Zn/4f coordination clusters showing high efficiency as catalysts with low catalytic loadings in Friedel-Crafts alkylation are described for the first time. The possibility of altering the 4f centers in these catalysts without altering the core topology allows us to further confirm their(More)

Today, the generation of kinetic models is still seen as a resource intensive and specialised activity. We report an efficient method of generating reaction profiles from transient flows using a state-of-the-art continuous-flow platform. Experimental data for multistep aromatic nucleophilic substitution reactions are collected from an automated linear(More)
Several intermediates and different reaction paths were identified for the acid catalysed conversion of fructose to 5-(hydroxymethyl)-2-furaldehyde (HMF) in different solvents. The structural information combined with results of isotopic-labelling experiments allowed the determination of the irreversibility of the three steps from the fructofuranosyl(More)
The title compound, [Cu(C5H5NO2S2)(C18H15P)2]·CHCl3, features a tetra-hedrally coordinated CuI atom within a P2S2 donor set defined by two phosphane P atoms and by two S atoms derived from a symmetrically coordinating di-thio-carbamate ligand. Both intra- and inter-molecular hy-droxy-O-H⋯O(hydroxy) hydrogen bonding is observed: the former closes an(More)
Michael addition (MA) is one of the most well studied chemical transformation in synthetic chemistry. Here, we report the synthesis and crystal structures of a library of 3d/4f coordination clusters (CCs) formulated as [ZnII2YIII2L4(solv)X(Z)Y] and study their catalytic properties toward the MA of nitrostyrenes with barbituric acid derivatives. Each CC(More)
