Distance and plasmon wavelength dependent fluorescence of molecules bound to silica-coated gold nanorods.
The distance and plasmon wavelength dependent fluorescence of an infrared dye ("IRDye") bound to silica-coated gold nanorods and IRDye loading is limited to maintain a distance between dye molecules on the surface to more than 9 nm, well above the Förster radius, which assures minimal dye-dye interactions on thesurface of the nanoparticles.

A synthetic and mechanistic investigation into the cobalt(i) catalyzed amination of aryl halides
Employing first-row transition metals in catalytic two-electron transformations remains a synthetic challenge. In order to overcome the common and often deleterious single-electron reactivity, anExpand
Synthesis and applications of rhodium porphyrin complexes.
This review will highlight historical and modern syntheses of rhodium porphyrins, as well as their respective reactions with small molecules and applications therein. Expand
Monoanionic bis(carbene) pincer complexes featuring cobalt(I-III) oxidation states.
The synthesis and characterization of a series of cobalt complexes featuring a pincer bis(carbene) ligand of the meta-phenylene-bridged bis-N-heterocyclic carbene ((Ar)CCC, Ar = 2,6-diispropylphenylExpand
A Synthetic and Mechanistic Investigation into the Cobalt(I) Catalyzed Amination of Aryl Halides.
The first Co(I)-catalyzed amination of unactivated aryl iodides with (TMS)2NLi for the formation of anilines, including those not accessible by other cross-coupling methods, is described.

ChemRxiv: Year One and Beyond
This time last year, ChemRxiv was launched with the goal to become the world’s premier preprint server focused on the chemical sciences, and what a year it has been! This spring, the Royal Society ofExpand

The theoretical approach shows that the oxygen ions surrounding these lithium ions can be easily oxidized, and in a complementary way, the XAS experiments show that it is the oxygen connected to Mn4+ that is concerned by the redox process. Expand
Gregarious gallium.
Gallium’s low melting point is often conferred on the final alloy, which makes the resulting material more easily workable, more stable and, as a result, more cost-effective. Expand
