We have investigated the effect of interchain interactions on the ultrafast depolarization of the photoluminescence from solid films of a conjugated polymer. Accurate control was exercised over the interchain separation by threading of the conjugated chains with insulating macrocycles or complexation with an inert host polymer. Our measurements indicate(More)
The ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi is one of the most successful marine bioinvaders on record. Native to the Atlantic coast of the Americas, M. leidyi invaded the Black Sea, Caspian and Mediterranean Seas beginning the in late 1980s, followed by the North and Baltic Seas starting in 2006, with major concomitant alterations in pelagic ecology, including(More)
Double or nothing: The title reaction converts a range of aromatic aldehydes and allenylmethyl/allyl silanes into 1,6-dioxecane derivatives in good to excellent yields (see scheme; Ar = aryl, Tf = triflate, THF = tetrahydrofuran, TMS = trimethylsilyl). In addition, the bisdiene product has been transformed into the corresponding tricyclic compound through a(More)
A series of isoxazolyl tetrahydropyridinyl oxazolidinones with various substituents at the 3-position of the isoxazole ring have been synthesized and their in vitro antibacterial activities (MIC) were evaluated against several Gram-positive strains including the resistant strains of Staphyloccus and Enterococcus, such as MRSA and VRE. One of the most potent(More)
Comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) were performed on a series of isoxazolyl compounds as a potent T-type calcium channel blockers. A set of 24 structurally similar compounds served to establish the model. Four different conformations of the most active compound were used as template(More)
We have prepared and evaluated the antibacterial activities of a series of substituted methylenepiperidinyl and methylenepyrrolidinyl oxazolidinones against several gram-positive strains including the resistant strains of Staphyloccus and Enterococcus, such as MRSA, CRSA, MSSA and VRE. Some of them showed comparable or superior in vitro activities (MIC) to(More)
[reaction: see text] Intramolecular Prins-type reactions of compounds having both functionalities of homoallyl alcohol and acetal moiety are described. The intramolecular Prins cyclizations were performed using indium trichloride in chloroform or 25% aqueous THF. Both 9-oxabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane and 3,9-dioxabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane compounds were successfully(More)
