Ionic liquids as solvents for biopolymers: Acylation of starch and zein protein
Abstract Biopolymers such as starch and zein protein were found to be soluble at 80 °C in ionic liquids such as 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (BMIMCl) and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazoliumExpand

Purine nucleotide cations. 2. Energetics and conformational effects on protonation-deprotonation of purine nucleoside
The N7 basicity of neutral purine nucleoside and the HC8 acidity of N7-protonated purine nucleoside were studied as functions of rotation about the C1'-N9 glycosidic bond. Conformation of theExpand

Room-Temperature Thermotropic Ionic Liquid Crystals: Viologen Bis(Triflimide) Salts
Several dicationic salts with bis(triflimide) as counterions—otherwise known as viologens—were prepared by metathesis reaction of the corresponding viologen dibromides (diiodides) with lithiumExpand
