Insulated molecular wire with highly conductive pi-conjugated polymer core.
According to time-resolved microwave conductivity and transient absorption spectroscopy measurements, the hole mobility along the pi-conjugated polymer chain of the polyrotaxane thus formed was extremely high and comparable to that in amorphous silicon. Expand
Intramolecular, Site-Selective, Iodine-Mediated, Amination of Unactivated (sp3)C-H Bonds for the Synthesis of Indoline Derivatives.
The Iodine-mediated oxidative intramolecular amination of anilines via cleavage of unactivated (sp3)C-H and N-H bonds for the production of indolines is described. This transition-metal-free approachExpand
Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of alkyl halides.
This tutorial review summarizes recent advances in cross-coupling reactions of alkyl halides and pseudohalides catalyzed by a palladium complex by introducing new effective ligands. Expand

New catalytic systems that do not involve M(0) species but proceed via an anionic complex as the key intermediate are developed, and new catalytic reactions use pi-carbon ligands such as pi-allyl units or alkynes instead of heteroatom ligand such as phosphines or amines are extended. Expand
Nickel-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of grignard reagents with alkyl halides and tosylates: remarkable effect of 1,3-butadienes.
A new method for the cross-coupling reaction of Grignard reagents with alkyl chlorides, bromides, and tosylates has been developed by the use of a nickel catalyst in the presence of a diene as anExpand
Ni- or Cu-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of alkyl fluorides with Grignard reagents.
Alkyl fluorides efficiently reacted with tertiary alkyl and phenyl Grignard reagents using CuCl2 in the absence of 1,3-butadiene to afford the coupling products in high yields. Expand
Synthesis of organic-soluble conjugated polyrotaxanes by polymerization of linked rotaxanes.
A new method of synthesizing permethylated cyclodextrin-based polyrotaxanes involving the polymerization of linked rotaxane monomers is demonstrated, which are highly soluble in organic solvents and have a high covering ratio, rigidity, and photoluminescence efficiency. Expand
