Manganese oxide nanotubes (MnO2) were efficiently produced through the hydrothermal method by using SiO2 powder as nucleation points, then doped with cobaltite (Co3O4) nanoparticles uniformly deposited along the surface of the MnO2 nanotubes. An integrative approach through advanced analytical electron micro
In situ H2 etching and homoepitaxial growth of 4H-SiC were performed on the Si-face on-axis substrates using low-pressure chemical vapor deposition. We investigated the effect of various etching temperatures and durations on the surface of the on-axis substrates and used optimized etching characteri
Herein, ternary Cu2MoS4 hollow nanotubes were incorporated on reduced graphene oxide sheet (rGO) via a facile hydrothermal route. A blue shift in the absorption edge of Cu2MoS4/rGO photocatalyst was observed in comparison to that of Cu2MoS4 alone (without rGO), which confirmed the formation of interfacial co
A new tool has been developed to help elucidate the differences in packing between different polymorphs, especially when the differences of interest are small. The technique builds upon the Hirshfeld fingerprint plot pioneered by Spackman and co-workers by subtracting the value at every point in a fingerprin
A series of highly modular chiral axial-unfixed biphenyl phosphine–oxazoline ligands were developed via a simple synthetic route using readily available (S)-(+)-2-phenylglycinol as a starting material. Modular oxazoline motifs can be efficiently constructed through various easily accessible carboxylic acids.
A regioselective and highly efficient electrochemical method for direct acylation and carboxylation of a fulleroindoline has been developed. By using inexpensive and readily available acyl chlorides and chloroformates, both keto and ester groups can be easily attached onto the fullerene skeleton to affor
An efficient iron-catalyzed cyclization of ketoxime acetates with N,N-dimethylaniline for the synthesis of symmetrical pyridines has been developed. A methyl carbon on N,N-dimethylaniline acts as a source of one carbon synthons. The reaction used readily available starting materials, tolerated various functi
De novo synthesis of alkynylated tryptophan moieties as chemical probes for protein profiling studies, via an unexpected synthesis of Michael acceptor 12 is reported. Friedel Craft's alkylation of 12 and alkyne substituted indoles gave alkynylated tryptophan moieties, which act as chemical probes by
The AgNO3-catalyzed reactions of unactivated alkenes with acetic acid and Selectfluor reagent in aqueous solution afforded the corresponding γ-fluorinated carboxylic acids under mild conditions. Carbofluorination was not only efficient and regioselective, but also enjoyed a wide functional group compatibilit
A silver-catalyzed three-component reaction of diazoketones, anilines and NFSI is developed. The reaction provides a new method for gem-aminofluorination of acceptor diazo compounds with aniline as the nitrogen source and NFSI as the fluorine source.
