This paper describes the self-assembly of hydrogen-bonded polymeric rods based on the lattice of cyanuric acid and melamine (CA‚M). Data from 1H NMR spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography (GPC), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) are interpreted as indicating that the self-assembly of a bisisocyanuric acid (bisCA) and a(More)
Electrocatalytic formal [2+2] cycloadditions between anodically activated aliphatic enol ethers and unactivated olefins possessing an alkoxyphenyl group have been accomplished in a lithium perchlorate/nitromethane electrolyte solution. The alkoxyphenyl group was revealed to play an important role in the reaction intermediates to complete formation of the(More)
Novel electron-transfer-induced intermolecular [2+2] cycloaddition reactions between an aliphatic cyclic enol ether and several unactivated olefins have been demonstrated on the basis of the aromatic "redox tag" strategy. The aromatic "redox tag" was oxidized during the formation of the cyclobutane ring, affording the relatively long-lived aromatic radical(More)
