Soft optical devices from self-healing gels formed by oil and sugar-based organogelators.
Sweet and low: two sugar-based supergelators can congeal oils to produce highly transparent gels with glass-like refractive indices showing low UV transmittance and high visible transmittance andExpand

A Sugar-Based Gelator for Marine Oil-Spill Recovery.
Marine oil spills constitute an environmental disaster with severe adverse effects on the economy and ecosystem. Phase-selective organogelators (PSOGs), molecules that can congeal oil selectivelyExpand

Regioselective O-acylation of myo-inositol 1,3,5-orthoesters: the role of acyl migration
Abstract An efficient and general method for the preparation of 2-O-acylated derivatives of myo-inositol 1,3,5-orthoesters via isomerization of the corresponding 4(6)-O-acylated derivatives has beenExpand

Total syntheses of cyclitol based natural products from myo-inositol: brahol and pinpollitol
Abstract Inositol and their derivatives are important class of biologically active natural products. Among the nine theoretically possible inositols, six are known to occur in nature. InterestinglyExpand

Chemoselective alcoholysis/acetolysis of trans-ketals over cis-ketals and its application in the total synthesis of the cellular second messenger, D-myo-inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate.
The involvement of natural phosphoinositols in various cellular signalling processes and the use of synthetic inositol derivatives in catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, natural product synthesisExpand

A mannitol based phase selective supergelator offers a simple, viable and greener method to combat marine oil spills.
Though phase selective organogelators (PSOGs) are thought to be useful for oil spill recovery, all known PSOGs require a water-miscible carrier solvent for their introduction. Providing a simple,Expand

Hopping-mediated anion transport through a mannitol-based rosette ion channel.
Artificial anion selective ion channels with single-file multiple anion-recognition sites are rare. Here, we have designed, by hypothesis, a small molecule that self-organizes to form a barrelExpand
