The Pd(II)-2,2'-bis(diphenylphosphino)-1,1'-binaphthyl (BINAP)-mediated chiral assembly of thioether-derivatised phthalocyanatomagnesium(II) compounds (MgPc(SR)8, SR is benzylthio (SBz) or benzhydrylthio (Bh)) was formed in toluene and at the toluene/water interface, and investigated by means of UV-Vis absorption and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy(More)
Genome size (C value) is an important index for phylogenetic studies. Haliotidae (abalones) includes many species widely distributed throughout the world’s oceans, which makes this family interesting for phylogenetic studies. To examine Haliotidae phylogeny, we determined the C value and adenine and thymine base pair content (AT %) of Haliotis discus hannai(More)
Tungsten oxide-based photochromic films which changed reversibly in air between colorless- transparent in the dark and dark blue under UV irradiation were prepared by using methylcellulose as a film matrix and polyols such as ethylene glycol (EG), propylene glycol (PG), and glycerin (Gly) as dispersing agents. Influence of the dispersing agents and water in(More)
The monomer-aggregate equilibrium of four phenothiazine (PN) dyes, containing thionine (TH), methylene blue (MB), new methylene blue (NMB), and 1,9-dimethylmethylene blue (DMB), in the tungsten(VI) oxide (WO(3)) nanocolloid solution has been investigated by means of UV-vis spectroscopy. Addition of PN dye into the WO(3) nanocolloid solution brought about(More)
The enhanced photochromic behaviors of the L-phenylalanine (Phe)-tungsten(VI) oxide (WO3) colloid binary aqueous solution have been investigated by means of UV-vis absorption spectrometry. The phenomena provided a potential use of the WO3 nanoparticles as a colorimetric probe for sensitive "label-free" detection of Phe.
Some new experimental methods for measuring the optical chirality of molecular aggregates formed at liquid-liquid interfaces have been reviewed. Chirality measurements of interfacial aggregates are highly important not only in analytical spectroscopy but also in biochemistry and surface nanochemistry. Among these methods, a centrifugal liquid membrane(More)
The apparent circular dichroism (CD) and the linear dichroism (LD) spectra of the aggregates of achiral zinc(II)-5,10,15,20-tetra(4-pyridyl)-21H,23H-porphine (ZnTPyP), formed at the toluene/water interface in a centrifugal liquid membrane (CLM) cell, were investigated by comparison with the microscopic CD and LD spectra of a single interfacial aggregate of(More)
Several subphthalocyanine derivatives that contain an alkoxo substituent as an axial ligand (RO-Subpc, R = 9-anthracenemethyl, benzyl, phenyl, 3,5-dimethylbenzyl, 3,5-dimethylphenyl, 4-methylbenzyl, and 4-methylphenyl) were synthesized. The formation of inclusion complexes of RO-Subpc with beta-CD in DMSO and at the toluene/water interface was investigated(More)
The photocatalytic degradation of chlorinated ethanes was studied in a tubular photoreactor packed with TiO(2) pellets prepared by sol-gel method. The steady-state condition was not obtained, but the deterioration in the photocatalytic activity was observed during the irradiation. Effects of mole fractions of water vapor, O(2), and C(2)H(5)Cl or(More)
The adsorption and aggregation behaviors of the cationic porphyrin derivatives such as 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-pyridyl)porphyrin [TPyP], 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(N-methyl-4-pyridyl)porphyrin [TMPyP], 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(N-ethyl-4-pyridyl)porphyrin [TEPyP], and 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(N-n-propyl-4-pyridyl)porphyrin [TPPyP] (hereafter called "TPyP derivatives") in the(More)
