The photoreactions of 1-nitro-9,10-anthraquinone (N1) and 2-methyl-1-nitro-9,10-anthraquinone (N2) were studied in benzene and acetonitrile in the presence of 1-phenylethanol. For N2, a short-lived 10 ns transient observed upon flash photolysis is attributed to a triplet state, which can be intercepted

Exploration of new and effective routes to conduct organic reactions in water using the special properties of water/organics is of great importance. In this work, we performed the disproportionation of various aromatic alcohols in water and in different organic solvents.

The reactions of alcohols with nitriles under solvent-free conditions, using molecular iodine as a catalyst, were investigated. The reaction of 1-phenylethanol with propanenitrile produced the amide N-(1-phenylethyl)propanamide, by dehydration and tautomerization, in 71% yield, under the following conditions: temperature=90°C, alcohol:iodine

Many naturally occurring biopolymers (i.e., proteins, RNA, DNA) owe their unique properties to their well-defined three-dimensional structures. These attributes have inspired the design and synthesis of folded architectures with functions ranging from molecular recognition to asymmetric catalysis. Among these are
