The reactivity of monosaccharides, furfural, and 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furfural (HMF) in the presence of a Brønsted acid (added as H(2)SO(4)) in the ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (BMImCl) is investigated at 120 °C. Fructose is converted much faster than mannose, glucose, and xylose and yields HMF with high selectivity, even in the absence of(More)
We show that methylgermane (GeH(3)CH(3)) can induce a transition from 111 to 110 oriented growth during the vapor-liquid-solid synthesis of Ge nanowires. This hydride-based chemistry is subsequently leveraged to rationally fabricate kinking superstructures based on combinations of 111 and 110 segments. The addition of GeH(3)CH(3) also eliminates sidewall(More)
