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)
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)
Mediation of reversible deactivation radical polymerization (RDRP) by cobalt(II) complexes (CMRP) is the most highly developed subcategory of organometallic mediated RDRP (OMRP). Attention was paid to CMRP for its unusual high efficiency observed for the control of acrylate and vinyl acetate polymerization that produced homo- and block copolymers with(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)
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)
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.
Catalytic activation of an unstrained, unactivated Si-C(sp(3)) bond in water to form methane and silanol by electrophilic rhodium(III) porphyrin [(por)Rh(III)] in acidic aqueous solutions under visible light (λ ≥ 420 nm) has been developed. Activation of the Si-C(sp(3)) bond occurs through direct Si-C bond cleavage, with methyl group transfer to rhodium to(More)
