Several biological processes involve glycans, yet understanding their ligand specificities is impeded by their inherent diversity and difficult acquisition. Generating broad synthetic sugar libraries for bioevaluations is a powerful tool in unraveling glycan structural information. In the case of the widely distributed heparan sulfate (HS), however, the 48(More)
INTRODUCTION Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) fulfills many of the ideal properties of a root end filling material and repair material for furcal perforation. However, its low cohesive property often makes it difficult to handle. To improve the handling properties of MTA root canal filling materials, MTA-like cement was made, and calcium lactate gluconate(More)
The reactions of prop-2-ynyltriphenylphosphonium bromide with a series of primary aromatic or aliphatic amines in refluxing acetonitrile generated the corresponding 2-hydrocarbylaminoprop-1-enyltriphenylphosphonium bromide [RNHC(Me)=CHPPh(3)]+Br- (R = 2,6-C(6)H(3)iPr(2) (1a), 2,6-C(6)H(3)Me(2) (1b), Ph (1c), t-Bu (1d)) as crystalline solids. Deprotonation(More)
This report describes the synthesis, structure, and reactivity of aluminum complexes containing tridentate biphenolate phosphine ligands of the type [RP(2-O-3,5-C6H2tBu2)2](2-) (R = tBu (2a), Ph (2b)). Alkane elimination of AlMe3 with one equiv. of H2[2a] or H2[2b] in THF at 0 °C cleanly affords colorless crystalline [2a]AlMe(THF) (3a) and [2b]AlMe(THF)(More)
We report the synthesis of concave magnetic Mn(x)Fe(1-x)O nanoparticles with high-index facet structures by a thermal decomposition approach. The particle morphology varies from cubic shape under pure Ar, to star-like shapes with exposure to air during the reaction. The oxidative etching in the presence of air (O2) strongly affects the exposed facets on the(More)
This work describes preparation and reaction chemistry of a terminal nickel(II) anilide complex supported by an unsymmetrically substituted diarylamido diphosphine ligand, [N(o-C(6)H(4)PPh(2))(o-C(6)H(4)P(i)Pr(2))](-) ([Ph-PNP-(i)Pr](-)). Treatment of NiCl(2)(DME) with H[Ph-PNP-(i)Pr] in THF at room temperature produced [Ph-PNP-(i)Pr]NiCl as green crystals(More)
A series of nickel(ii) complexes of the type [R-PNP]Ni(ER') ([R-PNP](-) = [N(o-C(6)H(4)PR(2))(2)](-); R = Ph, (i)Pr, Cy; E = NH, O, S; R' = Ph, (t)Bu) featuring unsupported, covalently bound pi-donor ligands have been prepared and characterized. The metathetical reactions of [R-PNP]NiCl (R = Ph, (i)Pr, Cy) with LiNHPh, NaOPh, or NaSPh, respectively,(More)
A series of five-coordinate aluminum complexes supported by o-phenylene-derived amido diphosphine ligands, [N(o-C(6)H(4)PR(2))(2)](-) ([R-PNP](-); R = Ph, (i)Pr) and [N(o-C(6)H(4)PPh(2))(o-C(6)H(4)P(i)Pr(2))](-) ([Ph-PNP-(i)Pr](-)), have been prepared and structurally characterized. Alkane elimination reactions of trialkylaluminum with H[Ph-PNP] (1a),(More)
