A superior method for the reduction of secondary phosphine oxides.
[reaction: see text] Diisobutylaluminum hydride (DIBAL-H) and triisobutylaluminum have been found to be outstanding reductants for secondary phosphine oxides (SPOs). All classes of SPOs can beExpand

Vibrational circular dichroism of amylose carbamate: structure and solvent-induced conformational changes
The conformational changes of amylose tris-(dimethylphenylcarbamate) (ADMPC) in the presence of polar solvents were investigated by VCD spectroscopy for the first time. The conformation of ADMPC wasExpand

Chromatographic and spectroscopic studies on the chiral recognition of sulfated beta-cyclodextrin as chiral mobile phase additive enantiomeric separation of a chiral amine.
A fast enantiomeric separation of a chiral aromatic amine was achieved, using ultra high pressure liquid chromatography and highly sulfated beta-cyclodextrin (S-beta-CD) as a chiral additive in theExpand

Room temperature palladium-catalyzed cross coupling of aryltrimethylammonium triflates with aryl Grignard reagents.
Aryltrimethylammonium triflates and tetrafluoroborates were found to be highly reactive electrophiles in the Pd-catalyzed cross coupling with aryl Grignard reagents. The coupling reactions proceed atExpand
