Photosensitized hydrogen evolution from water using a single-walled carbon nanotube/fullerodendron/SiO2 coaxial nanohybrid.
A coaxial nanohybrid consisting of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT), fullerodendron, and SiO(2) shows high-efficiency light-driven hydrogen evolution from water. Upon visible lightExpand
A Kinetically Stabilized Stannanetellone, a Tin−Tellurium Double-Bonded Compound
A kinetically stabilized stannanetellone was synthesized by the telluration of an extremely hindered stannylene with (n-Bu) 3 P=Te. The structure of the stannanetellone was determined by X-rayExpand
Synthesis and structure of pentaorganostannate having five carbon substituents.
The reaction of spirostannabifluorene with methyllithium gave lithium pentaorganostannate, which is an intermediate of the transmetalation reaction on the tin atom and the first example of a stableExpand
New reactions of a dibenzo[a,e]pentalene.
Reactions of 3 with halogens gave 5,10-dihalodibenzopentalenes, 8 and 9, the formation of which was evidenced by some trapping experiments and X-ray crystallographic analysis. Expand
SWCNT Photocatalyst for Hydrogen Production from Water upon Photoexcitation of (8, 3) SWCNT at 680-nm Light
A clear-cut example of a SWCNT photocatalyst producing H2 from water using water-dispersible coaxial nanowires possessing SWC NT/C60 heterojunctions and the band offset between the LUMO levels of (8, 3)SWCNT and C60 satisfactorily exceeds the exciton binding energy to allow efficient exciton dissociation.

Dilithioplumbole: A Lead-Bearing Aromatic Cyclopentadienyl Analog
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectra and relativistic theoretical calculations show considerable aromatic character in the molecule, thus extending aromaticity to carbon’s heaviest congener, dilithiotetraphenylplumbole by reduction of hexaphenyl plumbole. Expand
Synthesis and structures of heterasumanenes having different heteroatom functionalities
Abstract After the protection of two α-carbons of the dibenzothiophene moiety in triphenylenothiophene 1 by trimethylsilyl groups, the resulting compound 4 reacted with butyllithium followed byExpand
Enhanced Photosensitized Hydrogen Production by Encapsulation of Ferrocenyl Dyes into Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes.
Dye-encapsulated single-walled carbon nanotubes were employed for the construction of a coaxial three-component dye/SWCNT/C60 heterojunction, resulting in the photosensitized evolution of H2 from H2O using a ferrocenyl-based photosensitizer, which was confirmed by the action spectra. Expand
Synthetic analogues of [Fe4S4(Cys)3(His)] in hydrogenases and [Fe4S4(Cys)4] in HiPIP derived from all-ferric [Fe4S4{N(SiMe3)2}4]
The all-ferric [Fe4S4]4+ cluster [Fe4S4{N(SiMe3)2}4] 1 and its one-electron reduced form [1]- serve as convenient precursors for the synthesis of 3∶1-site differentiated [Fe4S4] clusters andExpand
