In chemistry and biology, chirality, or handedness, refers to molecules that exist in two spatial configurations that are incongruent mirror images of one another. Almost all biologically active molecules are chiral, and the correct determination of their absolute configuration is essential for the understanding and the development of processes involving(More)
The software program ChromWin simulates interconversion profiles in dynamic chromatography (rearrangements, isomerizations, epimerizations, diastereomerizations and, notably, enanatiomerizations) on a personal computer in a user-friendly environment. ChromWin is especially suited for systems involving large plate numbers, e.g. gas chromatography (GC) and(More)
Here, we demonstrate a versatile screening platform for NHC ligand based catalysts by coating fused-silica micro capillaries with a bonded 1,3-bismesityl-2-imidazolidinylidene ligand. Such micro capillaries can be efficiently converted into (pre)-catalysts from various organometallic precursors by solid-phase chemistry techniques and can be quantitatively(More)

Conformational and configurational changes such as isomerizations, epimerizations, diastereomerizations and, enantiomerizations are important for the investigation of a large variety of processes ranging from protein folding to the stereostability of drugs. Under optimized conditions, these processes lead to an elution profile characterized by a plateau(More)
BACKGROUND The weaning target in tracheotomised patients is not extubation, but spontaneous breathing without the support of a ventilator. Overloading the respiratory pump during such spontaneous breathing trials is unfavorable, prolongs weaning time, and increases morbidity and mortality. The goal of this study was to evaluate the electrical activity of(More)
Surprisingly stable formamide rotamers were encountered in the tetrahydroisoquinoline and morphinan series of alkaloids. We investigated the hindered rotation around the amide bond by dynamic high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC) and kinetic measurements of the interconversion of the rotamers which can readily be separated by HPLC as well as TLC.(More)
Stereodynamic ligands offer intriguing possibilities in enantioselective catalysis. "NU-BIPHEPs" are a class of stereodynamic diphosphine ligands which are easily accessible via rhodium-catalyzed double [2 + 2 + 2] cycloadditions. This study explores the preparation of differently functionalized "NU-BIPHEP(O)" compounds, the characterization of non-covalent(More)
A new approach for the investigation of a higher-order reaction by on-column reaction gas chromatography is presented. The reaction and the analytical separation are combined in a single experiment to investigate the Diels-Alder reaction of benzenediazonium-2-carboxylate as a benzyne precursor with various anthracene derivatives, i.e. anthracene,(More)
Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC x GC) is shown to provide information on dynamic molecular behaviour (interconversion), with the interconversion process occurring on both columns in the coupled-column experiment. The experiment requires suitable adjustment of both experimental conditions and relative dimensions of each of the columns.(More)
