    • Bridging the gap : attractive 3c-4e interactions in peri-substituted acenaphthylenes 

      Diamond, Louise M.; Knight, Fergus R.; Arachchige, Kasun S. Athukorala; Randall, Rebecca A. M.; Buehl, Michael; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2014-03) - Journal article
      A series of peri-substituted acenaphthylenes that contain mixed halogen-chalcogen functionalities at the 5,6-positions in 1-6 [Acenapyl[X](EPh) (Acenapyl = acenaphthylene-5,6-diyl; X = Br, I; E = S, Se, Te)] and ...
    • Chimpanzees coordinate in a snowdrift game 

      Sánchez-Amaro, Alejandro; Duguid, Shona; Call, Josep; Tomasello, Michael (2016-06) - Journal article
      The snowdrift game is a model for studying social coordination in the context of competing interests. We presented pairs of chimpanzees, Pan troglodytes, with a situation in which they could either pull a weighted tray ...
    • Chimpanzees, bonobos and children successfully coordinate in conflict situations 

      Sánchez-Amaro, Alejandro; Duguid, Shona; Call, Josep; Tomasello, Michael (2017-06-14) - Journal article
      Social animals need to coordinate with others to reap the benefits of group-living even when individuals' interests are misaligned. We compare how chimpanzees, bonobos and children coordinate their actions with a conspecific ...
    • Complexation of aromatic dichalcogen ligands to germanium 

      Meigh, Christina B. E.; Nejman, Phillip S.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2017-02-24) - Journal article
      Eight novel germanium compounds of the type [R2Ge(E-Ar-E)], where R = Me, Ph; E-Ar-E = an aromatic bidentate chalcogen ligand, were successfully synthesised. The effects of changing 3 variables within the series were ...
    • The effects of tactile feedback and movement alteration on interaction and awareness with digital embodiments 

      Doucette, Andre; Mandryk, Regan L.; Gutwin, Carl; Nacenta, Miguel; Pavlovych, Andriy (ACM, 2013-04-27) - Conference item
      Collaborative tabletop systems can employ direct touch, where people’s real arms and hands manipulate objects, or indirect input, where people are represented on the table with digital embodiments. The input type and the ...
    • Hydrogen generation from alcohols catalyzed by ruthenium-triphenylphosphine complexes : multiple reaction pathways 

      Sieffert, Nicolas; Buehl, Michael (2010-06-16) - Journal article
      We report a comprehensive density functional theory (DFT) study of the mechanism of the methanol dehydrogenation reaction catalyzed by [RuH2(H2)(PPh3)3]. Using the B97-D dispersion-corrected functional, four pathways have ...
    • Phosphite ligands in Ru-based olefin metathesis catalysts 

      Bantreil, Xavier; Cazin, Catherine S.J. (2015-07) - Journal article
      In this short review, we focus on the synthesis and applications of new phosphite-bearing ruthenium complexes in olefin metathesis. These complexes were designed to take advantage of a known synergistic effect between ...
    • Platinum bis(phosphine) complexes of 1,8-naphthosultam 

      Diamond, Louise M.; Knight, Fergus R.; Randall, Rebecca A. M.; Fuller, Amy L.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2014-11-01) - Journal article
      A series of bis(phosphine) platinum complexes 1-4 and 6-8 that bear the 1,8-naphthosultam ligand (L) have been synthesised. The nitrogen atom in L was deprotonated with sodium tert-butoxide to form the sodium salt. ...
    • Synchrony and motor mimicking in chimpanzee observational learning 

      Fuhrmann, Delia; Ravignani, Andrea; Marshall-Pescini, Sarah; Whiten, Andrew (2014-06-13) - Journal article
      Cumulative tool-based culture underwrote our species' evolutionary success, and tool-based nut-cracking is one of the strongest candidates for cultural transmission in our closest relatives, chimpanzees. However the social ...
