Insensitive munitions explosives are new formulations that are less prone to unintended detonation compared to traditional explosives. While these formulations have safety benefits, the individual constituents, such as 2,4-dinitroanisole (DNAN), have an unknown ecosystem fate with potentially toxic impacts to flora and fauna exposed to DNAN and/or its(More)
Three macrocyclic oligocholates containing a carboxyl group, a guanidinium ion, and a Cbz-protected amine, respectively, were studied as membrane transporters for hydrophilic molecules. To permeate glucose across lipid bilayers, the macrocycles stacked over one another to form a transmembrane nanopore, driven by a strong tendency of the water molecules in(More)
The title compound, C(14)H(10)Cl(4)O(4)S, is a 2,2,2-trichloro-ethyl-protected precursor of 4'-chloro-biphenyl-3-yl sulfate, a sulfuric acid ester of 4'-chloro-biphenyl-3-ol. The C(aromatic)-O and O-S bond lengths of the C(aromatic)-O-S unit are comparable to those in structurally analogous biphenyl-4-yl 2,2,2-trichloro-ethyl sulfates with no(More)
The four independent mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(14)H(9)Cl(5)O(4)S, are related by pseudo-inversion centres. The mol-ecules have C(aromatic)-O bond lengths ranging from 1.426 (10) to 1.449 (9) Å and biphenyl-4-yl sulfate ester bond lengths ranging from 1.563 (6) to 1.586 (6) Å, which is comparable to structurally related(More)
The mol-ecular structure of the title compound, C(14)H(11)Cl(3)O(4)S, displays a biphenyl dihedral angle of 4.9 (2)° between the benzene rings, which is significantly smaller than the calculated dihedral angle of 41.2° of biphenyl derivatives without ortho substituents. The C(Ar)-O bond length of 1.432 (4) Å is comparable with other sulfuric acid(More)
BACKGROUND Polychlorinated biphenyls are persistent organic pollutants that can be metabolized via hydroxylated PCBs to PCB sulfate metabolites. The sensitive and selective analysis of PCB sulfate monoesters by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) requires their derivatization, for example, as PCB 2,2,2-trichloroethyl (TCE) sulfate monoesters. To(More)
The title compound, C(14)H(10)Cl(4)O(4)S, is an inter-mediate in the synthesis of the PCB sulfate monoester of 4'-chloro-biphenyl-4-ol. Both the sulfate monoester and 4'-chloro-biphenyl-4-ol are metabolites of PCB 3 (4-chloro-biphen-yl). There are two mol-ecules with different conformations in the asymmetric unit. The solid state dihedral angles between the(More)
