Establishing the (3 + 2) Mechanism for the Permanganate Oxidation of Alkenes by Theory and Kinetic Isotope Effects.
Permanganate hydroxylation follows the (3 + 2) cycloaddition mechanism established earlier for osmium tetroxide. Density functional theory (Becke3LYP/6-31G) predicts that the concerted (3 + 2)Expand

1,2,4-Triazole-based tunable aryl/alkyl ionic liquids.
Ionic liquids based on aryl-/alkyl-substituted imidazolium salts constitute a new generation of ionic liquids with a high degree of flexibility. The new concept could now also be extended toExpand

Synthesis, Toxicity, and Biodegradation of Tunable Aryl Alkyl Ionic Liquids (TAAILs)
TAAILs (Tunable Aryl Alkyl Ionic Liquids) are a new class of ionic liquids with an entirely new cationic substructure and a completely different charge distribution. They have a broad potential forExpand

Phosphorescent Platinum(II) Complexes Based on C∧C* Cyclometalating Aryltriazol-5-ylidenes
Two series of heteroleptic platinum(II) carbene compexes of the type [Pt(C∧C*)(O∧O)] (O∧O = acetylacetonate) with C∧C* cyclometalated 4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazol-5-ylidene as well asExpand

Detour-free synthesis of platinum-bis-NHC chloride complexes, their structure and catalytic activity in the CH activation of methane
Abstract Chelating biscarbene ligands are one way to extend the stability of catalysts in homogenous catalysis. Methylene bridged palladium and platinum biscarbene complexes with various counterionsExpand

Synthesis, Structure and Stability of New PtII–Bis(N-Heterocyclic Carbene) Complexes
The use of metal acetates has allowed the synthesis of NHC complexes without isolation of the free carbene. This route is very useful in cases where the metal acetates are readily available and hasExpand

Electronic effects of para-substitution on the melting points of TAAILs.
Owing to numerous new applications, the interest in "task-specific" ionic liquids increased significantly over the last decade. But, unfortunately, the imidazolium-based ionic liquids (by far theExpand

Tunable Aryl Alkyl Ionic Liquids with Weakly Coordinating Tetrakis((1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoropropan-2-yl)oxy)borate [B(hfip)4 ] Anions.
Weakly coordinating borate or aluminate anions have recently been shown to yield interesting properties of the resulting ionic liquids (ILs). The same is true for large phenyl-substituted imidazoliumExpand
