Linear Alkane Polymerization on a Gold Surface
TLDR
This work reports the highly selective carbon-hydrogen (C–H) activation and subsequent dehydrogenative C–C coupling reaction of long-chain (>C20) linear alkanes on an anisotropic gold(110) surface, which undergoes an appropriate reconstruction by adsorption of the molecules and subsequent mild annealing, resulting in nanometer-sized channels.
Tricoordinate Carbanions, Cations, and Radicals
This chapter describes the formation of carbanions and some of their reactions. Directed deprotonation offers a regioselective route to carbanions. Diastereo- and enantioselective deprotonation can
Reactivity of isobutane in fluorosulfonic based superacids
The behavior of isobutane in DSO3F containing various amounts of SbF5 has been studied in relation to the acid strength of the superacid system. In contrast to the DF–SbF5 system, H/D exchange occurs

Abstract The variation of the function R0 (H) in water-hydrogen fluoride mixtures was determined on the basis of measurements of the hydrogen electrode potential versus the ferrocene-ferricinium
Isomerization, cracking and dehydrogenation of protonated mesityl oxide
Protonated mesityl oxide (1,3,3-trimethyl-1-hydroxyallyl cation, 1) in strong acids has been found to give three reactions, resulting in a large variety of products depending on the acid used as the
Chemistry and spectroscopy in strongly acidic solutions. Part XXIII: Reversible reaction between carbonium ions and hydrogen
The reduction of aliphatic carbonium ions to alkanes with molecular hydrogen is reported. A kinetic study of this reaction has been made in the two-phase solvent system HFFreon 113. The following
