Photosensitized hydrogen evolution from water using a single-walled carbon nanotube/fullerodendron/SiO2 coaxial nanohybrid.
A coaxial nanohybrid consisting of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT), fullerodendron, and SiO(2) shows high-efficiency light-driven hydrogen evolution from water. Upon visible lightExpand
SWCNT Photocatalyst for Hydrogen Production from Water upon Photoexcitation of (8, 3) SWCNT at 680-nm Light
A clear-cut example of a SWCNT photocatalyst producing H2 from water using water-dispersible coaxial nanowires possessing SWC NT/C60 heterojunctions and the band offset between the LUMO levels of (8, 3)SWCNT and C60 satisfactorily exceeds the exciton binding energy to allow efficient exciton dissociation.

An Extended Phenacene-type Molecule, [8]Phenacene: Synthesis and Transistor Application
The μ values recorded in this study show that [8]phenacene is a promising molecule for transistor applications, which is the highest reported in EDL FETs based on phenacene-type molecules. Expand
Multi-functionalization of gallic acid towards improved synthesis of α- and β-DDB
The synthesis of mono-, di- and trisubstituted gallic acids and their ester with similar or different groups including different acetal and ketals is described. Regioselective bromination on twoExpand
Enhanced Photosensitized Hydrogen Production by Encapsulation of Ferrocenyl Dyes into Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes.
Dye-encapsulated single-walled carbon nanotubes were employed for the construction of a coaxial three-component dye/SWCNT/C60 heterojunction, resulting in the photosensitized evolution of H2 from H2O using a ferrocenyl-based photosensitizer, which was confirmed by the action spectra. Expand
Fullerodendron-assisted Dispersion of Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes via Noncovalent Functionalization
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) were well dispersed in both water and organic solvent by the use of fullerodendron as a dispersant. A C 6 0 moiety at the focal point of dendron plays a crucialExpand
A photo-responsive hydrogelator having gluconamides at its peripheral branches.
A newly designed anthracene derivative having gluconamides at its peripheral branches formed a photo-responsive hydrogel. SEM observation of the xerogel showed a network structure consisting ofExpand
First synthesis and structural determination of 1, 1′‐spirobis(3H‐2, 1‐benzoxatellurole)‐3, 3′‐dione ([10‐Te‐4(C202)])
1, 1′-Spirobis(3H-2, 1-benzoxatellurole) -3, 3′-dione [10-Te-4(C202)] (1c) with five-membered spirorings was prepared, and its molecular structure was determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis.Expand
Peroxyoxalate chemiluminescence of N,N'-bistosyl-1H,4H-quinoxaline-2,3-dione and related compounds. Dependence on electronic nature of fluorophores.
A linear correlation of the logarithmic values evaluated from the CL quantum yields with the oxidation potentials of the aromatic fluorophores supports the involvement of the chemically initiated electron exchange luminescence (CIEEL) mechanism in both TsQD- and TCPO-CL systems. Expand
