We present a novel route to assemble perpendicular cylinders by converting an asymmetric diblock copolymer from poly(styrene-b-tert-butyl acrylate) (PS-b-PtBA) to poly(styrene-b-acrylic acid) (PS-b-PAA) using an autocatalytic reaction. Upon exposure of the films of PS-b-PAA to water, PAA cylinders constrained by the continuous, glassy PS phase protrude 10(More)
Model-based approaches provide a semantically well justified way to revise ontologies. However, in general , model-based revision operators are limited due to lack of efficient algorithms and inexpressibility of the revision results. In this paper, we make both theoretical and practical contribution to efficient computation of model-based revisions in(More)
A series of tris(pentafluorophenyl)corrole (TPFC) tin(IV) and tin(II) complexes were prepared and studied by various characterization techniques including (1)H, (19)F, and (119)Sn NMR and UV-vis spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The unusual 4-coordinate, monomeric, divalent tin(II) complex [(TPFC)Sn(II)](-) (2a) showed(More)
Selective oxidation of alcohol in water using molecular oxygen as the terminal oxidant is mediated by rhodium porphyrin complexes. Addition of methanol to an aqueous solution of (TSPP)Rh(III) resulted in observation of the key intermediate porphyrin rhodium(III) methoxide species. The activation parameters for betaC-H elimination of Rh-alkoxide were(More)
Living radical polymerization (LRP) of organic and water soluble acrylates and acrylamides was mediated by a versatile cobalt porphyrin complex (TMP-OH)Co. The capability of this cobalt complex to mediate LRP in both polar and non-polar media permits the direct synthesis of useful and previously difficult to prepare functional block copolymers.
(TPFC)Ge(TEMPO) (1, TPFC = tris(pentafluorophenyl)corrole, TEMPO(•) = (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-yl)oxyl) shows high reactivity toward E-H (E = N, O) bond cleavage in R1R2NH (R1R2 = HH, (n)PrH, (i)Pr2, Et2, PhH) and ROH (R = H, CH3) under visible light irradiation. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) analyses together with the density functional(More)
Tetra(p-sulfonato-phenyl) porphyrin rhodium hydride ([(TSPP)Rh-D(D2O)](-4)) (1) reacts in water (D2O) with carbon monoxide, aldehydes, and olefins to produce metallo formyl, alpha-hydroxyalkyl, and alkyl complexes, respectively. The hydride complex (1) functions as a weak acid in D2O and partially dissociates into a rhodium(I) complex(More)
In the presence of a catalytic amount of radical initiator AIBN, primary amines are oxidatively coupled to imines and tertiary amines are cyanated to α-aminonitriles. These "metal-free" aerobic oxidative coupling reactions may find applications in a wide range of "green" oxidation chemistry.
