Poly(amide amine) dendrimer with naphthyl units (N8) as a fluorescent chemosensor for metal ions was synthesized. We investigated the metal ion recognition of N8. Large changes in the fluorescence spectra of N8 were observed upon the addition of cadmium and zinc ions.
A poly(amine ester) dendrimer with naphthyl units (G1N6) has been synthesized as a fluorescent chemosensor for metal ions. We investigated the metal-ion recognition of G1N6 by adding each of Ag(+), Al(3+), Ba(2+), Ca(2+), Cd(2+), Co(2+), Cu(2+), Fe(3+), Mg(2+), Ni(2+), and Zn(2+) in acetonitrile solution. Large changes were observed in the fluorescence(More)
[reaction: see text] N,N-Di(6-azulenyl)-p-toluidine (1a) and N,N,N',N'-tetra(6-azulenyl)-p-phenylenediamine (2a) and their derivatives with 1,3-bis(ethoxycarbonyl) substituents on each 6-azulenyl group (1b and 2b) were prepared by Pd-catalyzed amine azulenylation and characterized as a study into new aromatic amines for multistage amphoteric redox(More)
1-, 2-, and 6-(Ferrocenylethynyl)azulene derivatives 10-16 have been prepared by palladium-catalyzed alkynylation of ethynylferrocene with the corresponding haloazulenes under Sonogashira-Hagihara conditions. Compounds 10-16 reacted with tetracyanoethylene (TCNE) in a [2+2] cycloaddition-cycloreversion reaction to afford the corresponding(More)
Synthesis of 2-aminofuran derivatives with an azulene or N,N-dimethylanilino substituent was established by the formal [2+2] cycloaddition-retroelectrocyclization of 3-(1-azulenyl or N,N-dimethylanilino)-2-propyn-1-ols with tetracyanoethylene, followed by intramolecular nucleophilic addition to the initially formed tetracyanobutadiene moiety of the internal(More)
Ethynylated 2H-cyclohepta[b]furan-2-ones 5-15 have been prepared by Pd-catalyzed alkynylation of 3-iodo-5-isopropyl-2H-cyclohepta[b]furan-2-one (2) with the corresponding ethynylarenes or the reaction of 2-iodothiophene with 3-ethynyl-5-isopropyl-2H-cyclohepta[b]furan-2-one (4) under Sonogashira-Hagihara conditions. Compounds 5-15 reacted with(More)
1-(2-Tryptanthrinylaminoacetoxy)-14-(1-pyrenecarboxy)-3,6,9,12-tetraoxatetradecane (T2NH-P5P) was synthesized as a fluorescent chemosensor for Al3+. Excited at 325 nm, corresponding to absorption of the pyrene unit of T2NH-P5P, emission at 600 nm from the 2-aminotryptanthrin unit has been observed, indicating that intramolecular fluorescence resonance(More)
[structure: see text] This paper describes the cyclotrimerization reaction of di(2-azulenyl)acetylenes (2a,b) catalyzed by Co2(CO)8 to produce hexa(2-azulenyl)benzene derivatives (1a,b). The cyclooligomerization of 2a and 2b utilizing CpCo(CO)2 as a catalyst produced (eta5-cyclopentadienyl)[tetra(2-azulenyl)cyclobutadiene]cobalt complexes (3a,b). The redox(More)
The Diels-Alder reaction of di-2-azulenylacetylene with tetraphenylcyclopentadienone afforded 7,8,9,10-tetraphenyldiazuleno[2,1-a:1,2-c]naphthalene in one pot via autoxidation of the presumed 1,2-di-2-azulenylbenzene derivative. In contrast, a similar reaction of bis(1-methoxycarbonyl-2-azulenyl)acetylene with tetraphenylcyclopentadienone gave the(More)
Mono-, bis-, tris-, and tetrakis(1-azulenylethynyl)benzene and mono- and bis(1-azulenylethynyl)thiophene derivatives 5-10 have been prepared by Pd-catalyzed alkynylation of ethynyl arenes with 1-iodoazulene derivative or the 1-ethynylazulene derivative with tetraiodobenzene and iodothiophenes under Sonogashira-Hagihara conditions.
