General description

Dibenzofuran has been converted to a vacuum-sublimable, electron-transporting host material for blue-green electrophosphorescent molecule, iridium (III) bis(4,6-(di-fluorophenyl)pyridinato-N,C2′)picolinate. Biodegradation of dibenzofuran (DF) and its structural analogs by a newly isolated Agrobacterium sp. PH-08 has been reported.

Dibenzofuran (DBF) is converted to a vacuum-sublimable, electron-transporting host material via 2,8-substitution with diphenylphosphine oxide moieties. Close pi-pi stacking and the inductive influence of P=O moieties impart favorable electron-transport properties without lowering the triplet energy. A maximum external quantum efficiency...

To demonstrate the biodegradation of dibenzofuran (DF) and its structural analogs by a newly isolated Agrobacterium sp. PH-08. To assess the biodegradation potential of newly isolated Agrobacterium sp. PH-08, various substrates were evaluated as sole carbon sources in growth and...

Many species of lichen-forming fungi contain yellow or orange extracellular pigments belonging to the dibenzofurans (usnic acid), anthraquinones (e.g. parietin) or pulvinic acid group. These pigments are all equally efficient light screens, leading us to question the potential ecological and...

Galectin-1 (gal-1), which binds β-galactoside groups on various cell surface receptors, is crucial to cell adhesion and migration, and is found to be elevated in several cancers. Previously, we reported on 6DBF7, a dibenzofuran (DBF)-based peptidomimetic of the gal-1 antagonist...

An intramolecular, organocatalyzed Michael addition has been developed to obtain biologically important 2,3-disubstituted cis-2,3-dihydrobenzofurans. By using mandelic acid salts of primary aminocatalysts, derived from cinchona alkaloids, the intramolecular cyclization reaction has been developed to proceed in high yield, with moderate...
