Multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) provides a well-established family of decision tools to aid stakeholder groups in arriving at collective decisions. MCDA can also function as a framework for the social learning process, serving as an educational aid in decision problems characterized by a high level of public participation. In this paper, the(More)
An efficient five-step synthetic method was developed to access a series of spermine derivatives containing appended acridine, anthracene, and 7-chloroquinoline motifs. The derivatives were composed of a spermine fragment covalently tethered at its N4 and N9 positions to an aromatic nucleus via an aliphatic chain (e.g., 8: acridine -[C4 aliphatic(More)
Measurement of 1 H-15 N and 13 C-15 N coupling constants at natural abundance is demonstrated to be a reliable and generic method to determine the configuration of oximes, hydrazines, and related systems. Data on 1 H-15 N and 13 C-15 N coupling constants on a variety of systems obtained at natural abundance confirm the geometric dependence of the measured 1(More)
An efficient five-step synthetic method was developed to access a homologous series of spermidine-acridine and spermidine-anthracene conjugates. The derivatives were comprised of a spermidine fragment covalently tethered at its N4 position to either an acridine or anthracene nucleus via an aliphatic chain (e.g., spermidine-[aliphatic tether]-acridine). The(More)
In this paper, we detail the results of (1)H-(15)N correlation data obtained via (13)C-(15)N coupling at natural abundance on a number of classes of azoles including pyrazoles, imidazoles and triazoles. The experiment produces data that is highly complementary to direct (1)H-(15)N HMBC type correlations in that it can provide (15)N chemical shift data for(More)
