Switchable Solvents Consisting of Amidine/Alcohol or Guanidine/Alcohol Mixtures
Liquids that consist of a mixture of an alcohol and either an amidine or a guanidine have been developed to switch from a low-polarity form to a high-polarity ionic liquid upon treatment with CO2 at
Solvents for sustainable chemical processes
The properties and some key applications of solvents such as (1) supercritical fluids (SCFs), (2) gas-expanded liquids (GXLs) and organic-aqueous tunable solvents (OATS), (3) water at elevated
One-component, switchable ionic liquids derived from siloxylated amines.
A new class of one-component, thermally reversible, neutral to ionic liquid solvents derived from siloxylated amines is presented and characterized.
Organic aqueous tunable solvents (OATS): a vehicle for coupling reactions and separations.
TLDR
The organic aqueous tunable solvent (OATS) system is described, describing the use of OATS for optimizing the reaction, separation, design, and recycling of Rh-catalyzed hydroformylation of olefins such as 1-octene and 2-phenylacetate and related innovations that have recently been reported.
Hydroformylation Catalyst Recycle with Gas-Expanded Liquids
Tunable solvents such as gas-expanded liquids offer unique opportunities as benign and economic reaction media. We have improved the turnover frequency of a water-soluble catalyst system by a factor
Indoles via Knoevenagel–Hemetsberger reaction sequence
A series of substituted indoles have been synthesized by the sequential reaction of aromatic aldehydes with ethyl azidoacetate in the presence of sodium ethoxide to form the corresponding ethyl
A blueprint for academic laboratories to produce SARS-CoV-2 quantitative RT-PCR test kits
TLDR
It is shown that academic biochemistry and molecular biology laboratories equipped with appropriate expertise and infrastructure can replicate commercially available SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR test kits and backfill pipeline shortages and develop an environmental testing protocol to readily monitor surfaces for the presence of SARS/COVID-19.
