Detection of creatinine by a designed receptor.
An artificial receptor has been designed to bind creatinine with a color change (chromogenic response) caused by proton transfer from one end of the receptor to the other. The receptor wasExpand

Rare-earth-metal-hydrocarbyl complexes bearing linked cyclopentadienyl or fluorenyl ligands: synthesis, catalyzed styrene polymerization, and structure-reactivity relationship.
A series of rare-earth-metal-hydrocarbyl complexes bearing N-type functionalized cyclopentadienyl (Cp) and fluorenyl (Flu) ligands were facilely synthesized. Treatment of [Y(CH(2)SiMe(3))(3)(thf)(2)]Expand

Carboxylation of organoboronic esters catalyzed by N-heterocyclic carbene copper(I) complexes.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an attractive, cheap, and nontoxic C1 source. However, because of its high thermodynamic stability and low reactivity, the use of CO2 as a C1 source for C C bond formationExpand

Copper-catalyzed direct carboxylation of C-H bonds with carbon dioxide.
The use of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a C1 building block for chemical synthesis has recently attracted much interest because of its abundance, low cost, nontoxicity, and high potential as a renewableExpand
