Dynamic complexation of copper(I) chloride by carbene-stabilized disilicon.
The dynamic complexation behavior of 2 was experimentally explored by variable-temperature NMR analysis and the structure and bonding in 2 has been investigated by crystallographic, spectroscopic, and computational methods. Expand
Synthesis and molecular structure of an abnormal carbene-gallium chloride complex.
While reaction of with GaCl3 gives a 4-functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene : GaCl3 adduct, reaction ofwith GaCl 3 affords the first abnormal carbene-gallium chloride complexes. Expand
Mechanism of Hydrocarbon Functionalization by an Iodate/Chloride System: The Role of Ester Protection
Mixtures of chloride and iodate salts for light alkane oxidation achieve >20% yield of methyl trifluoroacetate (TFA) from methane with >85% selectivity. The mechanism of this C–H oxygenation has beenExpand
Dibasic amines as competitive ions improve the resolution between polyanionic nucleotides.
The ability to easily resolve these positional isomers allows the use of a more simplified synthetic procedure that does not involve the use selective protecting groups to specifically phosphorylate the 2' or 3' hydroxyl group. Expand
Photolytic conversion of light alkanes to alkyl esters by iodine oxides and chloride salts in non-superacidic media
Despite the abundance of natural gas and the demand for efficient energy utilization, methods to convert light alkanes to liq. products are energy- and capital-intensive. Using mixts. of inexpensiveExpand
Hypervalent iodine oxides and chloride for the conversion of light alkanes to mono-functionalized products: A radical-based process for selective partial oxidation
A process for the partial oxidn. of light alkanes to mono-functionalized products in high conversion and yield has been highly sought after. With mixts. of iodine oxide and chloride salts inExpand
Selective partial oxidation of light alkanes using iodine oxides and halides
While natural gas is a plentiful energy resource, methods to effectively convert light alkanes to readily transported liqs. are energy and capital intense. Com. available and inexpensive halide andExpand
Conversion of light alkanes to alkyl esters and chlorides using iodine oxides and chlorides: Radical versus non-radical pathways
The selective and low temp. conversion of light alkanes to functionalized products has been a long-standing challenge. In protic media, the reaction of light alkanes (methane, ethane, propane) withExpand
