Highly Regio- and Enantioselective Vicinal Dihalogenation of Allyl Amides.
A highly regio-, diastereo- and enantioselective vicinal dihalogenation of allyl amides using commercially available catalysts and halenium sources along with cheap inorganic halide salts to affect this transformation. Expand
Patterning of polymer brushes. A direct approach to complex, sub-surface structures.
In the work presented, the direct electron beam patterning behavior of the brushes was studied and fabrication of nanochannels was demonstrated and a method to form subsurface polymer brush channels with nanometer-scale features was reported. Expand
Quantifying chloride binding and salt extraction with poly(methyl methacrylate) copolymers bearing aryl-triazoles as anion receptor side chains.
Copolymers of methyl methacrylate and aryl-triazole based anion receptors were quantitatively analyzed and extraction of tetrapropylammonium Cl(-) from water to dichloromethane was enhanced over PMMA. Expand
Nanoporous Thin Films Formed from Photocleavable Diblock Copolymers on Gold Substrates Modified with Thiolate Self-Assembled Monolayers.
The results suggest that thiolate SAM modification provides a simple means to control the interfacial orientation of PEO microdomains in thin PS-hν-PEO films. Expand
Electrochemical Characterization and Catalytic Application of Gold-Supported Ferrocene-Containing Diblock Copolymer Thin Films in Ethanol Solution.
This paper reports the electrochemical behavior and catalytic property of electrode-supported thin films of polystyrene-block-poly(2-(acryloyloxy)ethyl ferrocenecarboxylate) (PS-b-PAEFc) in anExpand
The hydroxylapatite nanostructures with different morphologies have been synthesized by a facile solution approach. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electronExpand
Electron Propagation within Redox-Active Microdomains in Thin Films of Ferrocene-Containing Diblock Copolymers.
This paper reports the electrochemical behavior of redox-active microdomains in thin films of ferrocene-containing diblock copolymers, polystyrene-block-poly(2-(acryloyloxy)ethylExpand
Arylonium photoacid generators containing environmentally compatible aryloxyperfluoroalkanesulfonate groups
Photoacid generators (PAGs) producing environmentally benign 2-phenoxytetrafluoroethanesulfonate fluoroorganic sulfonic acids were synthesized. Synthesis and characterization of the new PAGs composedExpand
XtalFluor-E® mediated proto-functionalization of N-vinyl amides: access to N-acetyl N,O-acetals.
XtalFluor-E® is used with protic nucleophiles in a catalytic manner for the in situ generation of protons that lead to the proto-functionalization of activated olefins in nearly quantitative yields. Expand
ABA type triblock copolymer based on mesogen-jacketed liquid crystalline polymer: Design, synthesis, and potential as thermoplastic elastomer
We have designed and successfully prepared a well-defined ABA type triblock copolymer consisting of poly(n-butyl acrylate) as soft B block and poly{2,5-bis((4-methoxyphenyl)oxycarbonyl)styrene}Expand
