Peripheral site ligand-oxime conjugates: A novel concept towards reactivation of nerve agent-inhibited human acetylcholinesterase.
A conceptually novel approach to the design of reactivators of nerve agent-inhibited acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is presented. The concept comprises the linkage of a peripheral site ligand via aExpand

Cr K‐Edge XANES Spectroscopy: Ligand and Oxidation State Dependence — What is Oxidation State?
A series of Cr complexes varying in oxidation state, ligand and geometry were studied with Cr K‐edge XANES. The main absorption edge energy shift for an oxidation state change from Cr0 to Cr6+ isExpand

Synthesis of DNA fragments by the hydroxybenzotriazole phosphotriester approach
Abstract The application of the phosphorylating agent 2-chlorophenyl-o,o-bis-[1-benzotriazolyl]-phosphate (HOBT-approach) for the introduction of 3'-5'-phosphotriester linkages between a properlyExpand

Shape‐Selective Synthesis of Palladium Nanoparticles Stabilized by Highly Branched Amphiphilic Polymers
Despite the broad interest in such materials, the synthesis of defined structures in the size range of 10 nm to ca. 1 micrometer ("mesoscopic") is challenging. Few routes shape-selectively affordExpand

Influence of the Generation of Mesopores on the Hydroisomerization Activity and Selectivity of n-Hexane over Pt/Mordenite
The activity and selectivity of hydroisomerization of n-hexane over Pt/mordenite is strongly influenced by acid leaching. The activity increases and the selectivity changes to favor primary products.Expand

Transition metal dissolution and deposition in Li-ion batteries investigated by operando X-ray absorption spectroscopy
In Li-ion batteries the dissolution of transition metals from the cathode and their subsequent deposition on the anode are known to contribute to capacity fading. In this study, we investigate theseExpand

An Explanation for the Enhanced Activity for Light Alkane Conversion in Mildly Steam Dealuminated Mordenite: The Dominant Role of Adsorption
This paper presents a catalytic, spectroscopic, calorimetric study of mildly steam-dealuminated mordenite (H-MOR). With increasing steam partial pressures at 673 K there is increasing dealumination,Expand

Deactivation processes of homogeneous Pd catalysts using in situ time resolved spectroscopic techniques.
UV-Vis, combined with ED-XAFS shows, for the first time, the evolution of inactive Pd dimers and trimers, that are a possible first stage in the deactivation process of important palladium catalysedExpand
