It is shown that the traveling salesman problem for graphs of degree at most three with n vertices can be solved in time O(1.251), improving the previous bound O(1.260) by Eppstein.
An interfacial sol-gel synthesis of inorganic hollow microspheres in room-temperature ionic liquids is newly developed. When metal alkoxides such as titanium tetrabutoxide, Ti(OBu)4, are dissolved in anhydrous toluene and injected into 1-buthyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([C4mim]PF6) under vigorous stirring, hollow titania microspheres are… (More)
CdTe nanocrystals (NCs) passivated with chiral ligands d- and l-cysteinemethylester hydrochloride were prepared and observed to exhibit characteristic CD profiles with symmetrical mirror images depending on the chirality of the capping ligand. The optical activity of CdTe NCs is shown to originate from the distorted CdS shell including chiral capping… (More)
The distorted coordination structures and luminescence properties of novel lanthanide complexes with oxo-linked bidentate phosphane oxide ligands--4,5-bis(diphenylphosphoryl)-9,9-dimethylxanthene (xantpo), 4,5-bis(di-tert-butylphosphoryl)-9,9-dimethylxanthene (tBu-xantpo), and bis[(2-diphenylphosphoryl)phenyl] ether (dpepo)--and low-vibrational frequency… (More)
The formation of multicomponent heterostructures has made semiconductor nanocrystals (NCs) attractive for engineering electronic and optical properties because of their ability to tune their band offsets at the interface. As is well known for bulk semiconductors, heterostructured semiconductor interfaces form at least two kinds of steplike electronic… (More)
A metal-free organic semiconductor of mesoporous graphitic carbon nitride (C3N4) coupled with a Ru(II) binuclear complex (RuRu') containing photosensitizer and catalytic units selectively reduced CO2 into HCOOH under visible light (λ > 400 nm) in the presence of a suitable electron donor with high durability, even in aqueous solution. Modification of C3N4… (More)
Photochromic terarylene having a methoxy group and hydrogen as the leaving units at the photochemical reaction center carbon atoms has been synthesized. This molecule shows irreversible photochemical reaction affording a highly fluorescent condensed aromatic molecule.
Chiral bichromophoric perylene bisimides are demonstrated as active materials of circularly polarized emission. The bichromophoric system exhibited circularly polarized luminescence with dissymmetry factors typical of that of similar organic chiral chromophoric systems in the monomeric state. Variation in solvent composition led to the formation of stably… (More)
α,β-Linked oligothiazoles with head-to-tail connectivity are presented as a new family of helical scaffolds. Combinations of palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions at the 5- and 4-positions of 2-phenylthiazole led to the synthesis of oligo(2-phenylthiazoles) with ortho linkages with a variety of defined sequences. The secondary structures of the… (More)
