The monoammoniate of calcium amidoborane, Ca(NH(2)BH(3))(2)·NH(3), was synthesized by ball milling an equimolar mixture of CaNH and AB. Its crystal structure has been determined and was found to contain a dihydrogen-bonded network. Thermal decomposition under an open-system begins with the evolution of about 1 equivalent/formula unit (equiv.) of NH(3) at(More)
Magnesium amidoborane monoammoniate (Mg(NH(2)BH(3))(2) x NH(3)) which crystallizes in a monoclinic structure (space group P2(1)/a) has been synthesized by reacting MgNH with NH(3)BH(3). Dihydrogen bonds are established between coordinated NH(3) and BH(3) of [NH(2)BH(3)](-) in the structure, promoting stoichiometric conversion of NH(3) to H(2).
Multiphoton upconversion is a process where two or more photons are absorbed simultaneously to excite an electron to an excited state and, subsequently, the relaxation of electron gives rise to the emission of a photon with frequency greater than those of the absorbed photons. Materials possessing such property attracted attention due to applications in(More)
DFT calculations have demonstrated that the unconventional bifunctional Brønsted-Lewis acid activation mode is generally applicable to a range of nucleophilic conjugate additions catalyzed by bicyclic guanidine catalysts. It competes readily with the conventional bifunctional Brønsted acid mode of activation. The optimal pro-nucleophiles for this(More)
Organocatalytic direct anti-selective Mannich reactions of O-TBS-hydroxyacetone with various N-tosylimines derived from aromatic aldehydes in the presence of L-threonine-derived catalyst afforded 1,2-amino alcohols in good yields and with enantioselectivities of 99% in almost all cases.
