Description

Application

Magnetic characteristics were studied of organometallic oxo-vanadium cluster compounds, such as [C5Me5V]4(μ-O)6, which is formed by reduction with sodium mercury amalgam.

Used for:
• Ionic liquid based sodium ion conducting gel polymer electrolytes
• Dehalogenation agent for the room-temperature synthesis of carbonaceous films
• Plant-scaled method for preparation of deuterium-depleted water
• Investigations of solvent effects on desulfonylation of polyethylene glycol-substituted aryl alkyl sulfones

Catalyst for synthesis of selectively benzylated Me α-D-glucopyranosides

Reagent for reduction of RDX for functionalization for forensic analysis
