We propose an interactive scheme for segmenting meal images for automated dietary assessment. A smartphone user photographs a meal and marks a few touch points on the resulting image. The segmentation algorithm initializes a set of food segments with the touch points, and grows them using local image features. We evaluate the algorithm with a data set(More)
The synthesis of C4- and C2-symmetrical [8]cycloparaphenylene (CPP)-octacarboxylates has been achieved via macrocyclization by the rhodium-catalyzed intermolecular stepwise cross-cyclotrimerization and subsequent reductive aromatization. The C4-symmetrical octa-tert-butyl [8]CPP-octacarboxylate forms a dimer in which eight ester moieties face each other.(More)
The convenient synthesis of substituted benzopicenes and azabenzopicenes has been achieved by the cationic rhodium(I)/H8-BINAP or BINAP complex-catalyzed [2+2+2] cycloaddition under mild conditions. This method was applied to the synthesis of benzopicene-based long ladder and helical molecules. The X-ray crystal structure analysis revealed that the(More)
An electron-deficient Cp(E) rhodium(III) complex bearing a cyclopentadienyl ligand with two ethyl ester substituents catalyzes the tandem [2+2+2] annulation-lactamization of acetanilides with two alkynoates via cleavage of adjacent two C-H bonds to give densely substituted benzo[cd]indolones. The reactions of meta-methoxy-substituted acetanilides with two(More)
It has been established that cationic rhodium(I)/axially chiral biaryl bis(phosphine) complexes catalyze the asymmetric [2+2+2] cycloaddition of 1,6-enynes with electron-rich functionalized alkenes, enamides, and vinyl carboxylates, to produce the corresponding protected cyclohexenylamines and cyclohexenols. Interestingly, regioselectivity depends on(More)
It has been established that an electron-deficient Cp(E) rhodium(III) complex catalyzes the oxidative [4+2] annulation of substituted arenecarboxylic and acrylic acids with alkynes under ambient conditions (at RT-40 °C, under air) without using excess amounts of substrates to produce the corresponding substituted isocoumarins and α-pyrones in high yields.(More)
The enantioselective synthesis of phenanthrenol-based [9]helicene-like molecules has been achieved via the rhodium-mediated intramolecular [2 + 2 + 2] cycloadditions of 3-phenanthrenol-linked triynes. Crystal structures and photophysical/chiroptical properties of these [9]helicene-like molecules were compared with the corresponding [7]helicene-like(More)
The synthesis of alternating donor-acceptor [12] and [16]cycloparaphenylenes (CPPs) has been achieved by the rhodium-catalyzed intermolecular cross-cyclotrimerization followed by imidation and/or aromatization. These alternating donor-acceptor CPPs showed positive solvatofluorochromic properties and smaller HOMO-LUMO gaps compared with nonfunctionalized(More)
It has been established that a cationic rhodium(I)/axially chiral biaryl bisphosphine complex catalyzes the asymmetric [2 + 2 + 2] cycloaddition of α,ω-diynes with electron-rich and unstrained unsymmetrical 1,2-disubstituted alkenes to give chiral multicyclic compounds with good yields and ee values. Interestingly, enantioselectivity highly depends on the(More)
