Cerebral cortex (New York, N.Y. : 1991), 28(5), 1882-1897 (2018-02-27)
The thalamus receives input from 3 distinct cortical layers, but input from only 2 of these has been well characterized. We therefore investigated whether the third input, derived from layer 6b, is more similar to the projections from layer 6a...

Chiral crystals of achiral benzils act as efficient chiral initiators of asymmetric autocatalysis to afford highly enantioenriched pyrimidyl alkanols whose absolute configurations depend upon the enantiomorph of the crystal used in conjunction with asymmetric autocatalysis with amplification of enantiomeric excess.

Organic letters, 10(1), 73-75 (2007-12-07)
The isolation and characterization of an intermediate from the benzil-cyanide reaction is reported. The use of this trapping chemistry to produce a chemical indicator for the cyanide anion is described. It relies on the synthesis and reaction of a pi-extended...

Methoxy-functionalized triphenylamine-imidazole derivatives that can simultaneously work as hole transport materials (HTMs) and interface-modifiers are designed for high-performance and stable perovskite solar cells (PSCs). Satisfying the fundamental electrical and optical properties as HTMs of p-i-n planar PSCs, their energy levels...

A series of benzil derivatives related to combretastatin A-4 (CA-4) have been synthesized by oxidation of diarylalkynes promoted by PdI(2) in DMSO. Using this new protocol, 14 benzils were prepared in good to excellent yields and their biological activity has...
