A methodology for the synthesis of monodisperse homoconjugated oligomers (dimer, trimer, and tetramer) derived from cofacial 7,7-diphenylnorbornane (DPN) is described. Extended aromatic homoconjugation is observed in these oligomers as revealed by the electronic spectra. The effective homoconjugation length (EHL) is in the range of 4-5 DPN subunits.
The effect of a bridgehead methyl group on the hydride ion affinity in the gas phase of bicyclo[1.1.1]pent-1-yl (1+), 1-norbornyl (3+), cubyl (5+), 1-adamantyl (7+), bicyclo[2.2.2]oct-1-yl (9+),and bicyclo[3.1.1]hept-1-yl (11+) cations has been studied using density functional theory and ab initio methods. It is concluded that the methyl group always(More)
The use of a thiol-functionalized nonionic surfactant to stabilize spherical gold nanoparticles in water induces the spontaneous formation of polyrotaxanes at the nanoparticle surface in the presence of the macrocycle α-cyclodextrin. Whereas using an excess of surfactant an amorphous gold nanocomposite is obtained, under controlled drying conditions the(More)
Several models, theoretical levels and computational methods, all based on the canonical variational transition state approximation, have been used to predict both the experimental activation energies (ΔEexp ) and the experimental activation free energies (ΔGexp ) for the hydrolysis of aryldiazonium ions. It is demonstrated that the computation of(More)
7',7'-Dimethylspiro[cyclopropane-1,2'-norbornan]-1'-yl triflate (9) was obtained and its solvolysis rates in buffered 60% aqueous ethanol were determined at different temperatures. The solvolytic behavior of 9 and other bridgehead derivatives (13-17, see Table 1) was studied by force-field, semiempirical and ab initio [B3LYP/6-31g(d)] methods. Cation 9(+)(More)
