The chemistry of the chromotropic acid method for the analysis of formaldehyde
Formaldehyde is present in the indoor air of many industrial and non-industrial environments. The procedure most commonly employed in North America for its analysis is one that uses chromotropic acidExpand

Alkynyl expanded donor-acceptor calixarenes: geometry and second-order nonlinear optical properties.
A number of wide- and narrow-rimmed functionalized alkynylcalix[4]arenes have been synthesized by Sonogashira coupling. With respect to their optical properties, these donor-acceptor systems areExpand

Formaldehyde monitoring in urea-formaldehyde foam-insulated houses in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada: Correlative field evaluation of a real-time infrared spectrophotometric method
Abstract Formaldehyde air levels in a group of houses containing urea-formaldehyde foam insulation (UFFI) in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, were measured on at least four separate occasions. TheExpand

Embracing C(60) with multiarmed geodesic partners.
1,3,5,7,9-Pentakis(4-methoxyphenylthio)corannulene (3), 1,3,5,7,9-pentakis(2-naphthylthio)corannulene (4), and 1,3,6,8-tetrakis(4-methoxyphenylthio)corannulene (5b) have been synthesized byExpand

Palladium catalyzed cross-coupling between phenyl- or naphthylboronic acids and benzylic bromides
The Suzuki-Miyaura palladium-catalyzed coupling reaction was extended to achieve mixed cross-coupling between substituted aryl and naphthyl mono- and bisbromomethanes with phenylboronic acid,Expand

Concave polyarenes with sulfide-linked flaps and tentacles: new electron-rich hosts for fullerenes.
Pentakis(1,4-benzodithiino)corannulene (6) in CS2 formed the strongest 1:1 complexes with C60 and C70 of any corannulene derivative yet reported. The 1,3,5,7,9-pentakis(propylthio)corannulene (4b)Expand

Corannulene and its penta-tert-butyl derivative co-crystallize 1:1 with pristine C60-fullerene.
The first X-ray structural determinations of pristine fullerene C(60), cocrystallized 1:1 with corannulene and with its pentaalkyl-substituted derivative, 1,3,5,7,9-penta-tert-butyl-corannulene, haveExpand

C3v-symmetrical tribenzotriquinacenes as hosts for C60 and C70 in solution and in the solid state.
Various tribenzotriquinacenes (TBTQs), most of which incorporate six functional groups at the periphery of their C3v-symmetrical, rigid and convex-concave molecular framework, have been studied withExpand

Thermodynamic study of the complexes of calix[4]naphthalenes with [60]fullerene in different solvents
Calix[4]naphthalenes are a class of molecules which possess deeper cavities than those of the analogous calix[4]arenes. Preliminary data obtained for the complexation of [60]fullerene (“C60”) withExpand
