6-O-(2-sulfonato-6-naphthyl)-gamma-cyclodextrin (1) and 6-deoxy-(pyrene-1-carboxamido)-beta-cyclodextrin (2) were prepared. Homodimerizations of 1 and 2 and heteroassociation between 1 and 2 were investigated by (1)H NMR, circular dichroism, and fluorescence spectroscopic methods. The compounds 1 and 2 form head-to-head dimers with dimerization constants of(More)
The kinetics of cyclodextrin (CD) inclusion complexation has been usually analyzed in terms of a one-step reaction or a consecutive two-step reaction involving intracomplex structural transformation as a second step. These schemes presume the inclusion of guest molecules through only one side of the CD cavity and the formation of unidirectional CD(More)
SLAM(Simultaneous localization and mapping) and AI(Artificial intelligence) have been active research areas in robotics for two decades. In particular, localization is one of the most important issues in mobile robot research. Until now expensive sensors like a laser sensor have been used for the mobile robot’s localization. Currently, as the RFID reader(More)
Photochemical reactions mediated by semiconducting particles have drawn a great amount of interest in solar energy conversion and storage, photochemical clean-up of organic pollutants, and functional group transformation of organic compounds. TiO2 is the most studied semiconductor due to its uv-vis absorption and chemical stability. Irradiation of TiO2(More)
[structure: see text] Capping the alpha-cyclodextrin (alpha-CD) complex of 1-(N-carbazole)-10-[4-(4-pyridinio)-1-pyridinio]decane with 3,5-dimethoxybenzyl bromide in DMF gives two isomeric [2]rotaxanes, 2a and 2b, while alpha-CD and 1-(N-carbazole)-10-[4-(1-methyl-4-pyridnino)-1-pyridinio]decane 3 in water form mostly a unidirectional [2]pseudorotaxane(More)
Although men typically hold favorable views of advertisements featuring female sexuality, from a Terror Management Theory perspective, this should be less the case when thoughts of human mortality are salient. Two experiments conducted in South Korea supported this hypothesis across a variety of products (e.g., perfume and vodka). Men became more negative(More)
A novel solvatochromic fluorescent molecule, 9,9-dibutyl-7-(dimethylamino)-2-fluorenesulfonate 2 was synthesized from 2-nitrofluorene in moderate yield. The fluorescence spectra of 2 and 7-(dimethylamino)-2-fluorenesulfonate 1 shift to shorter wavelengths as the polarity of the medium decreases. Both 1 and 2 bind to hydrophobic sites of human serum albumin(More)
Strongly emissive cuprous complexes containing a stable σ-SiH-Cu motif were prepared. These complexes serve as a proof of principle that σ-complexation can be utilized as a design principle for engineering responsive light emitting materials. Their excited state lifetimes were found to be long (∼20 μs) with high quantum yields (φ = 0.40-0.59).
Do graphic pictorial health warnings (GPHWs) on cigarette packaging work better for some people than others? According to the Extended Parallel Process Model (EPPM), fear appeals should heighten positive change only if a person believes he or she is capable of change (i.e., self-efficacy). We exposed 242 smokers and 241 nonsmokers (aged 18-29) in the(More)
[Reaction: see text]. The self-inclusion behavior and induced circular dichroism (ICD) characteristics of two beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) derivatives, in which a 1-methyl-4,4'-bipyridinium (viologen) group is connected by an octamethylene chain to either the primary (2(2+)) or secondary (3(2+)) side of beta-CD, and of their reduced forms, are investigated.(More)
