We demonstrate fast characterization of the distribution of surface bonding modes and interactions in a series of functionalized materials via surface-enhanced nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy using dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP). Surface-enhanced silicon-29 DNP NMR spectra were obtained by using incipient wetness impregnation of the sample with… (More)
The introduction of N-heterocyclic carbene ligands (NHC) has led to major breakthroughs in homogeneous catalysis. However, such homogeneous catalysts can still suffer from deactivation and problems related to catalyst cost and recovery, as well as metal separation from the organic substrates. In the case of the very challenging and promising reaction of… (More)
An octylsilane-stabilized colloidal dispersion of 2 nm crystalline gold nanoparticles is highly active and selective for the aerobic oxidations of stilbene and cyclohexene in methylcyclohexane.
AgOC(CF(3))(3), a soluble source, was found to be a convenient reagent for the one-pot preparation of Ag-NHC and M-NHC complexes starting from imidazoliums (M = Au, Ir, Pd and Ru).
The facile and selective synthesis of small crystalline Pt(3)Sn alloy nanoparticles was performed at room temperature under H(2), using a colloidal approach without the use of extra-stabilizing ligands. The Pt(3)Sn alloy was found to be obtained spontaneously as the unique phase regardless of the number of tin equivalents introduced.
