The aromatic hydrocarbon biphenyl is a widely distributed environmental pollutant. Whereas the aerobic degradation of biphenyl has been extensively studied, knowledge of the anaerobic biphenyl-oxidizing bacteria and their biochemical degradation pathway is scarce. Here, we report on an enrichment culture...

Low-shrinkage resin-based photocurable liquid crystalline epoxy nanocomposite has been investigated with regard to its application as a dental restoration material. The nanocomposite consists of an organic matrix and an inorganic reinforcing filler. The organic matrix is made of liquid crystalline...

A highly efficient cross-coupling of diarylborinic acids and anhydrides with aryl chlorides and bromides has been effected by using a palladium catalyst system co-supported by a strong σ-donor N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC), N,N'-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl) imidazol-2-ylidene, and a strong π-acceptor phosphite, triphenylphosphite, in...

Ultrasound-assisted extraction was employed to extract polysaccharides from longan seed (LSP), with aids of a Box-Behnken statistical design to investigate the effects of ultrasonic power, time and liquid/solid ratio on the extraction recovery of the LSP. The structural analysis indicated...

A modular way towards biaryls: Highly enantioenriched biphenyls can be prepared based on a transition-metal-free aryl-aryl coupling followed by efficient desymmetrization or deracemization and chemoselective functionalization (see scheme).
