Bringing New Chemistry to Guanosine Hydrogels
Molecular self-assembly is a powerful method to construct functional materials such as supramolecular hydrogels. Hydrogels contain mostly water but show solid-like rheology. Nucleosides and nucleotides contain rich recognition ...
Mechanistic Studies of Photochemical Reactions: Photoacid Generators, Photoreleaseable Protecting Groups, and Diarylnitrenium Ions
The use of light to drive chemical reactions is becoming increasingly popular due to the enhanced spatial and temporal control provided. Because of this, it is important to understand how these photochemical transformations ...
NOVEL PLATINUM COMPLEXES SUPPORTED BY SULFONATED CNN PINCER LIGANDS RELEVANT TO AEROBIC METHANE FUNCTIONALIZATION CHEMISTRY
Mild and selective aerobic methane functionalization has always been a challenge. Shilov developed a PtII based system that has a potential to solve the problem, but the non-practical PtIV oxidant needs to be substituted ...
SYNTHESIS AND MOLECULAR RECOGNITION PROPERTIES OF ACYCLIC CUCURBIT[N]URIL AND ITS DERIVATIVES
The study of molecular containers has accelerated dramatically since the 1960's. The introduction of cucurbit[n]urils has contributed tremendously and continues to contribute to the expansion of the field. Chapter 1 ...
CUCURBIT[N]URIL FUNCTIONALIZATION AND INCORPORATION INTO METAL-ORGANIC ASSEMBLIES
Molecular containers have been widely studied due to their unique ability to recognize guest molecules. Host compounds have been used in various applications including sensing, separations, and the development of smart ...
MECHANISMS AND RATIONAL CATALYST DESIGN OF ORGANIC TRANSFORMATIONS FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF NEW C-C AND C-X BONDS
The creation of new C-C or C-X bonds, where X can be oxygen, nitrogen or fluorine, is vital to organic synthesis and the discovery of new methods for complex molecule synthesis. In many cases, the mechanism of these ...
