The replacement of toxic Cr(VI) for O2 and of chlorinated solvents for supercritical carbon dioxide (or ionic liquids) in the oxidation of alcohols remains hindered by the low selectivity and activity of the current heterogeneous catalysts. Using an integrated approach that combines sol-gel entrapped perruthenate as aerobic catalyst, an encapsulated ionic… (More)
Ordered mesoporous silicas with hexagonal or lamellar architectures incorporating covalently bound ionic species were synthesized via a template directed hydrolysis-polycondensation of tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) with triethoxysilylated imidazole [(EtO)(3)Si(CH(2))(3)-Im] or alkylimidazolium halides [(EtO)(3)Si(CH(2))(3)-Im(+)-R Hal(-)].
We report the synthesis of a new trialkoxysilylated ionic liquid based on disilylated guanidinium and monosilylated sulfonimide species. This compound allowed the successful preparation of new periodic mesoporous organosilicas containing covalently anchored ion-pair through both organo-cationic and organo-anionic moieties which have never been reported up… (More)
Mesoporous thin films functionalized with silylated [small beta]-diketone compounds with symmetry mesostructure dependent on the probe quantity were used as fast uranyl species sensors with high selectivity and sensitivity.
Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV), an arthropod-borne orbivirus (family Reoviridae), is an emerging pathogen of wild and domestic ruminants closely related to bluetongue virus (BTV). EHDV serotype 6 (EHDV6) has recently caused outbreaks close to Europe in Turkey and Morocco and a recent experimental study performed on calves inoculated with these… (More)
Mesoporous hybrid silica bearing zwitterionic species were synthesized via template-directed hydrolysis-polycondensation reactions from zwitterionic ammonium sulfonate precursors. The formation of the nanostructured phases involves specific precursor-template interactions. The obtained materials are efficient heterogeneous catalysts in Biginelli reactions.
π-Conjugated thienylene-phenylene oligomers with fluorinated and dialkoxylated phenylene fragments have been designed and prepared to understand the interactions in fragment orbitals, the influence of the substituents (F, OMe) on the HOMO-LUMO gap, and the role of intramolecular non-covalent cumulative interactions in the construction of π-conjugated… (More)
A new approach for the morphological control of bridged silsesquioxanes has been achieved by the hydrolysis of silylated organic molecules bearing urea groups. The urea groups are responsible for the auto-association of the molecules through intermolecular hydrogen-bonding interactions. The self-assembly leads to supramolecular architectures that have the… (More)
New promising oligo(phenylenethienylene)s have been synthesized to realize suitable materials for improving electronic transport properties, particularly in organic field effect transistors (OFETs). Far-infrared and incoherent neutron scattering measurements have been performed to assign their phonon modes. The assignment of the main low-frequency phonon… (More)
