Four novel bisquaternary aldoxime cholinesterase reactivators differing in their chemical structure were prepared. Afterwards, their biological activity was evaluated for their ability to reactivate acetylcholinesterase (AChE; EC and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE; EC inhibited by paraoxon. Their reactivation activity was compared with(More)
Herein we demonstrate the synthesis of a helicene-based imidazolium salt. The salt was prepared by starting from racemic 2-methyl[6]helicene, which undergoes radical bromination to yield 2-(bromomethyl)[6]helicene. Subsequent treatment with 1-butylimidazole leads to the corresponding salt 1-butyl-3-(2-methyl[6]helicenyl)-imidazolium bromide. The prepared(More)
This study reports the preparation of thin nanoparticulate films of titanium dioxide and its modified version doped with a transition metal. The behavior of prepared films was described by means of their photocatalytic and photo-induced electrochemical properties. The TiO(2) and M/TiO(2) (M=Ag, Zr, Fe) thin films were produced via a standard sol-gel method(More)
The conformational behaviour of a prototype helical molecule, [6]helicene, and its derivatives was studied in solution and the solid state. Available crystal structures of [6]helicene revealed surprisingly large flexibility of this molecule and variable-temperature NMR experiments provided unusual temperature dependence of chemical shifts of hydrogen,(More)
The di-pi-methane rearrangement with two pi-groups bonded to a single carbon leading to pi-substituted cyclopropanes is now well established. The present research had as its goal the exploration of molecular systems having three pi-moieties attached to an sp(3)-hybridized atom in a search for a tri-pi-methane rearrangement. Indeed, it was found that such(More)
N,N'-Didodecyl-substituted 3,10-diazapicenium salts featuring bromide and hexafluorophosphate counterions have been designed as novel dopants to realize individualized graphene sheets in a series of cutting edge experiments and to intrinsically stabilize them via p-doping. Importantly, electrochemical studies revealed two consecutive irreversible(More)
Perfluoroalkylated methacrylates 7a-c bearing sulfinyl group within a straight-chain ester group, i.e. CH(2)=C(CH(3))CO(2)CH(2)CH(2)S(O)-CH(2)CH(2)CF(2)(CF(2)CF(2))(n)CF(3) (n=1-3) were prepared by two alternative synthetic sequences from 2-[(polyfluoroalkyl)sulfanyl]ethanols HOCH(2)CH(2)SCH(2)CH(2)CF(2)(CF(2)CF(2))(n)CF(3) (n=1-3) in overall yields of(More)
6-O-(4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,7-Nonafluoro-2-hydroxyheptyl)-, 6-O-(4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8,8,9,9,9-tridecafluoro-2-hydroxynonyl)-, and 6-O-(4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8,8,9,9,10,10,11,11,11-heptadecafluoro-2-hydroxyundecyl)-d-galactopyranose (9, 10, and 11, resp.) were prepared by a two-step synthesis including the reaction of 1,2:3,4-di-O-isopropylidene-alpha-d-galactopyranose with(More)
