(-)-Dysibetaine has been synthesized in 11 steps from readily available L-malic acid (see scheme). The key step is a unique Ugi 4-center-3-component cyclization reaction, where an ester group acts as the carboxylic acid component. The use of 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexamethyldisilazane as an...

A model is presented that describes the gate-voltage-dependent contact resistance and channel-length-dependent charge carrier mobility of small-molecule-based organic thin-film transistors in top and bottom drain/source contact configuration.

Two-dimensional silica nanoparticle assemblies were obtained by deposition of bubble made from a surfactant solution containing nanoparticles onto hydrophobic silicon substrate. The morphologies of the nanoparticle assemblies can be finely controlled by several experimental parameters, including surfactant concentration, nanoparticle concentration...

Chemical and topographical cues can be used to guide dissociated neurons into user-defined network geometries on artificial substrates, yet control of neuron polarity (differentiation into axons and dendrites) remains an elusive goal. We developed a dual guidance cue strategy for...

'Conventional' (-)-sparteine adducts of lithium and sodium 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexamethyldisilazide (HMDS) were prepared and characterised, along with an unexpected and 'unconventional' hydroxyl-incorporated sodium sodiate, [(-)-sparteine x Na(mu-HMDS)Na x (-)-sparteine](+)[Na(4)(mu-HMDS)(4)(OH)](-)--the complex anion of which is the first inverse crown ether anion.
