AIM To assess the developmental characteristics of very low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants using the Kyoto Scale of Psychological Development (KSPD) and to compare with those using the Bayley Scales, third edition (Bayley III). METHODS KSPD and Bayley III were performed on 124 Japanese VLBW infants at 18months of corrected age at a 2-week interval by trained(More)
BACKGROUND Although adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients encounter unique challenges related to social adaptation and mental health, only minimal research has been conducted on this functioning in Japanese ACHD patients. The aims of this study were to describe aspects of the psychosocial functioning of ACHD patients and to determine the(More)
Nickel complexes with hydrotris(pyrazolyl)borate ( = Tp(R)) ligands catalyze alkane oxidation with organic peroxide meta-Cl-C(6)H(4)C([double bond, length as m-dash]O)OOH ( = mCPBA). The electronic and steric hindrance properties of Tp(R) affect the catalyses. The complex with an electron-withdrawing group containing a less-hindered ligand, that is,(More)
A new and stable quadruple hydrogen-bonded capsule, tetracarboxylcavitand.meso-tetra(2-pyridyl)porphyrin (1 x 2) has been synthesized and spectroscopically characterized. 1 x 2 can encapsulate small molecules of various size from methane to cyclopentane. The guest and host exchange rates were evaluated by EXSY.
Exchange of guest molecules into capsule shaped host molecules is the most fundamental process in host-guest chemistry. Several examples of quantitative measurements of guest exchange rates have been reported. However, there have been no reports on the activation energies of these processes. A molecule known as cavitand-porphyrin (H2CP) has been reported to(More)
Immobilized nickel catalysts SBA*-L-x/Ni (L = bis(2-pyridylmethyl)(1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-ylmethyl)amine) with various ligand densities (L content (x) = 0.5, 1, 2, 4 mol % Si) have been prepared from azidopropyl-functionalized mesoporous silicas SBA-N3-x. Related homogeneous ligand L(tBu) and its Ni(II) complexes, [Ni(L(tBu))(OAc)2(H2O)] (L(tBu)/Ni) and(More)
Hybrid mesoporous SBA-15 silicas were synthesized directly with variable alkylazide loading representing 2-50% surface coverage. These hybrid silica materials retain the favorable physical attributes of the parent SBA-15 materials and allow efficient covalent attachment of ethynylated organic moieties through a copper catalyzed 3 + 2 Huisgen cycloaddition(More)
The nickel(II) complex [Ni(Tp(Me2)) (SC(6)H(4)NO(2))] [1a; Tp(Me2) = hydrotris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)borate] reacts with O(2) to form the ligand oxygenation product ArSO(2)(-) in MeCN, and also 1a catalyzes the oxygenation of external substrates such as triphenylphosphine. The reactivity may correlate to the unique quinoid-like resonance structure of the(More)
Two tetradentate ligands 1,2-bis[2-((dimethylamino)methyl)-6-pyridyl]ethane (L1) and 1,2-bis[2-(N-piperidinomethyl)-6-pyridyl]ethane (L2) and a hexadentate ligand 1,2-bis(2-((methyl(pyridylmethyl)amino)methyl)-6-pyridyl)ethane (L3) were prepared as part of a series of new polypyridine ligands possessing a 1,2-bis(2-pyridyl)ethane common moiety. L1 and L2(More)
