Bis[3-(5-nitroimino-1,2,4-triazolate)]-based energetic salts were synthesized in a simple, straightforward manner. They exhibit low solubility in available solvents, high hydrolytic stability, excellent thermal stability, high density, positive heat of formation, low shock sensitivity, and excellent detonation properties. The physical and energetic(More)
A new diterpene with an unprecedented carbon skeleton, micranthanone A (1), two new grayanane diterpenoids bearing an unusual 5,6-(3,4-dihydroxylbenzylidene acetal) motif, rhodomicranols A (2) and B (3), and three known grayanane diterpenoids (4-6) were isolated from Rhododendron micranthum. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analyses,(More)
Two pairs of racemic spirodienone neolignans with a rare 2-oxaspiro[4.5]deca-6,9-dien-8-one motif, named (±)-subaveniumins A (1) and B (2), were isolated from the bark of Cinnamomum subavenium. The chiral separation of the (+)-1, (-)-1, (+)-2, and (-)-2 enantiomers was accomplished via high-performance liquid chromatography on a chiral column. Their(More)
It is still a challenge to design and synthesize high performance broader ultraviolet non-linear optical (NLO) materials. Two new transition-metal silicates have recently attracted a lot of attention due to their strong phase-matched second harmonic generation (SHG) responses (about 4.5 times higher than KDP). However, the electronic and optical properties(More)
The second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) properties of a series of dithienylethene- (DTE-) containing Pt(II) complexes have been investigated by density functional theory calculations. The first hyperpolarizabilities β of studied systems can be greatly enhanced by simple ligand substitutions. Because of the nature of DTE units, the β values also can be(More)
We present in this paper the second-order nonlinear optical properties of a series of penta-nuclear metal clusters [MS4Cu4X2Py6] (M=Mo, W; X=Br, I) on the basis of the hyper-Rayleigh scattering experiments and the first-principle calculations (TDDFT). The measurements obtain the notably large dynamic quadratic hyperpolarizabilities at 1064 nm [beta(-2omega,(More)
The Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics (CPMD) method was used to study the dynamic characteristics of the cation-pi interaction between ammonium and benzene in gaseous and aqueous media. The results obtained from the CPMD calculation on the cation-pi complex in the gaseous state were very similar to those calculated from the Gaussian98 program with DFT and(More)
The mixed-lanthanide metal-organic frameworks (M'LnMOFs) applied for accurate, non-invasive and self-reference temperature measurements have been only recently recognized. It is a great challenge for chemists to fulfil the requirements of a thermostable structure, intense luminescence and high temperature sensitivity on one LnMOF ratiometric thermometer for(More)
Three new diterpenoids with unprecedented carbon skeletons, cinncassiols F (1) and G (2) and 16-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-19-deoxycinncassiol G (3), a new isoryanodane diterpenoid, 18-hydroxyperseanol (4), six known isoryanodane diterpenoids, 5-10, and a known ryanodane diterpenoid, 11, were isolated from the stem bark of Cinnamomum cassia. Compound 1 possesses(More)
Considering the importance of palladium-based and doped metal-oxide catalysts in CO oxidation, we design a new Pd3O9@α-Al2O3 catalyst and simulate its efficiency under a hydroxylated effect. The structure, electronic structure and oxidation activity of the hydroxylated Pd3O9@α-Al2O3(0001) surface are investigated by density functional theory. Under the(More)
