Bauhinia is a typical genus of pantropical intercontinental disjunction among the Asian, African, and American continents. Geographic distribution patterns are better recognized when fossil records(More)
Methyltrioxorhenium is a novel and efficient organometallic catalyst. It has exhibited amazingly high activities in a variety of organic reactions, and can form compounds with Lewis base. Thus, the improvement of its synthesis rate has become a pop topic all over the world. The content of rhenium in raffinate and residue from the synthesis of(More)
