A novel ionic liquid (IL) supported, green synthetic protocol has been developed toward the synthesis of oxo and thio hydantoin analogues tethered with tetrahydro-beta-carboline by the use of focused microwave irradiation. IL-bound tryptophan underwent a Pictet-Spengler reaction with various carbonyl compounds to generate the IL-immobilized(More)
Focused microwave irradiation has been applied to a multistep synthetic sequence of reactions designed to generate benzimidazolyl quinoxalinones using a soluble polymer support. They were obtained by the ipso-fluoro (S(N)Ar) displacement of the immobilized ortho-nitro fluoro benzimidazoles with chiral alpha amino esters under microwave irradiation.(More)
An efficient soluble polymer-supported method has been developed for the parallel synthesis of substituted benzimidazole linked benzoxazoles using focused microwave irradiation. The key step involves the amidation of 4-hydroxy-3-nitrobenzoic acid with polymer-immobilized o-phenylenediamine. Application of mild acidic conditions promoted the ring closure to(More)
By using octahedral gold nanocrystals with sizes of approximately 50 nm as the structure-directing cores for the overgrowth of Pd shells, Au-Pd core-shell heterostructures with systematic shape evolution can be directly synthesized. Core-shell octahedra, truncated octahedra, cuboctahedra, truncated cubes, and concave cubes were produced by progressively(More)
Cubic, rhombic dodecahedral, octahedral, and corner-truncated octahedral gold nanocrystals with sizes of tens of nanometers have been used as building blocks to form micrometer-sized supercrystals by slowly evaporating a water droplet on a substrate placed in a moist environment. Drying the droplet at 90 °C was found to yield the best supercrystals.(More)
In most studies describing the preparation of Cu2O crystals of various morphologies, the particle sizes are normally hundreds of nanometers to micrometers due to rapid particle growth, so they are not exactly nanocrystals. Here we report surfactant-free formation of sub-100 nm Cu2O nanocrystals with systematic shape evolution from cubic to octahedral(More)
Cubic, octahedral, and rhombic dodecahedral Cu2O nanocrystals bound by respectively {100}, {111}, and {110} facets were successfully employed to catalyze the [3 + 2] cycloaddition reaction for the regioselective synthesis of 3,5-disubstituted isoxazoles. Surfactant-free nanocrystals having the same total surface area were used for the catalysis. Strongly(More)
An efficient cascade synthesis of novel benzimidazole linked alkyloxypyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxalinones was explored on soluble polymer support under microwave irradiation. Two exclusive protocols have been developed for the partial and full reductive cyclization by controlling the microwave energy. Commencing from the same substrate, ortho nitro pyrrol(More)
Indole-based alkaloids are well-known in the literature for their diverse biological properties. Polysubstituted optically active tetrahydro-β-carboline derivatives functionalized on C-1 position are the common structural motif in most of the indole-based alkaloids, as well as highly marketed drugs. The stereoselective Pictet-Spengler reaction is one of the(More)
Thin film characterization, electrical performance, and preliminary reliability of physical vapor-deposited (PVD) TaN/ chemical vapor-deposited (CVD) Ru bilayer were carried out to evaluate its feasibility as a liner layer for BackEnd of Line (BEOL) Cu-low k integration. Adhesion and barrier strength were studied using 4-point bend, x-ray diffraction (XRD),(More)
