Diamantoide. Chemie mit Nano‐Juwelen
Zukunft der Diamontoide. Obwohl die Klasse der Diamantoide schon seit Jahrzehnten bekannt ist, hat die Renaissance dieser molekularen Nanodiamanten erst vor kurzem begonnen. Im letzten JahrhundertExpand
London’sche Dispersionswechselwirkungen in der Molekülchemie – eine Neubetrachtung sterischer Effekte
Die London’sche Dispersion, die den attraktiven Teil des Van-der-Waals-Potentials beschreibt, wurde lange als Element struktureller Stabilitat in der molekularen Chemie unterschatzt. Als solchesExpand
Evidence of diamond nanowires formed inside carbon nanotubes from diamantane dicarboxylic acid.
Compound 1 was sublimed and self-assembled into the quasi-1D space of double-wall CNTs (DWCNTs) by a vaporphase reaction, and may be a promising choice to yield diamond nanowires inside C NTs. Expand
Infrared Spectrum of the Adamantane+–Water Cation: Hydration‐Induced C−H Bond Activation and Free Internal Water Rotation
The prototypical monohydrated adamantane cation (C10H16 +–H2O, Ad+–W) is characterized by infrared photodissociation spectroscopy in the CH and OH stretch ranges and dispersion‐corrected density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Expand
Catalysts containing the adamantane scaffold
The bulky, but symmetrically beautiful, adamantane ring system is now pervasive throughout physical, medicinal and synthetic chemistry, since it was first discovered in 1924 and coined “dekaterpene”.Expand
CH Bond Arylation of Diamondoids Catalyzed by Palladium(II) Acetate
We have developed an effective approach to 1,2-disubstituted diamondoids by palladium(II) acetate catalyzed functionalization of CH bond. Selective mono-arylation of the adamantane framework wasExpand
Template Synthesis of Linear-Chain Nanodiamonds Inside Carbon Nanotubes from Bridgehead-Halogenated Diamantane Precursors.
This synthetic approach is primarily based on a template reaction of dihalogen-substituted diamantane precursors in the hollow cavities of carbon nanotubes, which may offer a new strategy for the design and synthesis of one-dimensional nanomaterials. Expand
Host-Guest Complexes of Cyclodextrins and Nanodiamonds as a Strong Non-Covalent Binding Motif for Self-Assembled Nanomaterials.
We report the inclusion of carboxy- and amine-substituted molecular nanodiamonds (NDs) adamantane, diamantane, and triamantane by β-cyclodextrin and γ-cyclodextrin (β-CD and γ-CD), which haveExpand
London dispersion in molecular chemistry--reconsidering steric effects.
This Review collects and emphasizes the importance of inter- and intramolecular dispersion for molecules consisting mostly of first row atoms and forces us to reconsider the authors' perception of steric hindrance and stereoelectronic effects. Expand
Diamondoid Nanostructures as sp 3 ‐Carbon‐Based Gas Sensors
Diamondoids, sp-hybridized nanometer-sized diamond-like hydrocarbons (nanodiamonds), difunctionalized with hydroxy and primary phosphine oxide groups, enable the assembly of the first sp-C-basedExpand


Hydrogenolysis of alkyl‐substituted adamantanes, diamantanes, and triamantanes in the gas phase on a nickel‐alumina catalyst
Dealkylation of several alkyladamantanes, diamantanes, and triamantanes has been observed in the gas phase with hydrogen at atmospheric pressure on a 30% nickel-alumina catalyst. Yield-temperatureExpand
Systematic classification and nomenclature of diamond hydrocarbons—I: Graph-theoretical enumeration of polymantanes
Abstract Diamond hydrocarbons are defined as hydrocarbons containing at least one adamantane unit wholly or largely superimposable on the diamond lattice. When two or more adamantane units areExpand
Keine Schwermetalle, keine Enzyme und eine sehr einfache Durchfuhrung – die bislang praparativ nicht umsetzbare direkte Iodierung von aliphatischen Kohlenwasserstoffen ist nun moglich imExpand
