The functional response of single Coenosia attenuta Stein (Diptera: Muscidae) adult females to Drosophila melanogaster (Meigen) adults has been investigated at different but constant temperatures and prey densities. The experiments were conducted in cages over a wide range of temperatures between 12 and 42 degrees C. At each experimental temperature, the(More)
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) coated with stabilizing molecular monolayers are utilized in areas ranging from life sciences to nanoelectronics. Here we present a novel and facile one-pot single phase procedure for the preparation of stable AuNPs with good dispersity, which are coated with α,ω-alkanedithiols whose outer ω-thiol is protected by a triphenylmethyl(More)
A series of octahedral dioxomolybdenum(VI) complexes of the type [MoO(2)L(2)] {L = 4-Ar-pent-2-en-ol; L(i-Pr2Ph) with Ar = 2,6-diisopropylphenyl (1); L(Me2Ph) with Ar = 2,6-dimethylphenyl (2), L(MePh) with Ar = 2-methylphenyl (3) and with Ar = phenyl (4)} and dioxotungsten(VI) compounds [WO(2)L(2)] {L(i-Pr2Ph) (5); L(Me2Ph) (6) and L(MePh) (7)} with Schiff(More)
By reaction of the hexabromoheptasilane MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeBr(2))(3) (1 a) with H(2)O, H(2)S, NH(3), and H(2)NMe the heptasilaadamantanes MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeO)(3) (4), MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeS)(3) (5), MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeNH)(3) (6 a), and MeSi(SiMe(2)SiMeNMe)(3) (6 b), respectively, were prepared in good to moderate yields. Molecular structures of 4, 5, 6 a, and 6 b were(More)
Reactions of trisilylated silylfluorides with potassium tert-butoxide were found to give disilylated fluorosilylenoids. The latter undergo a self-condensation reaction, leading to the formation of beta-fluorodisilanyl anions, which may also be considered as fluoride adducts of disilenes. The stereochemical outcome of this self-condensation depends on the(More)
Possessing the property of sigma-bond electron delocalisation, polysilanes are a class of compounds with unique properties. In recent years major progress has been achieved in the theoretical understanding and the synthesis of polysilanes. Much insight into the connection between conformation and electronic properties has been gained from studies of defined(More)
Lewis acid-catalyzed rearrangement reactions of trimethylgermylated small permethylated oligosilanes were found to show a strong tendency of the germanium atoms to move to the more highly silylated positions of the molecule. This makes possible the construction of molecules with high germanium content in the core parts of the molecules by the following(More)
