  • Unusual intermolecular “through-space” J couplings in P–Se heterocycles 

    Sanz Camacho, Paula; Athukorala Arachchige, Kasun Sankalpa; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Green, Timothy F.G.; Yates, Jonathan R.; Dawson, Daniel McLean; Woollins, J Derek; Ashbrook, Sharon Elizabeth Marie (2015-05-20) - Journal article
    Solid-state NMR spectra of new P–Se heterocycles based on peri-substituted naphthalene motifs show the presence of unusual J couplings between Se and P. These couplings are between atoms in adjacent molecules and occur ...
  • Chiral wide bite angle diphosphine ligands : synthesis, coordination chemistry and application in Pd-catalyzed allylic alkylation 

    Czauderna, Christine; Jarvis, Amanda; Heutz, Frank; Cordes, David Bradford; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; van der Vlugt, Jarl Ivar; Kamer, Paul C J (2015-05-11) - Journal article
    A series of diphosphine ligands bearing ester- and ether-modified diphenylether backbones have been prepared. The introduction of carboxylic acid or ether auxiliaries in the ortho-positions relative to the diphenylphosphine ...
  • Synthesis of ‘unfeasible’ zeolites 

    Mazur, Michal; Wheatley, Paul Stewart; Navarro-Rojas, Marta; Roth, Wieslaw J.; Položij, Miroslav; Mayoral, Alvaro; Eliášová, Pavla; Nachtigall, Petr; Čejka, Jiří; Morris, Russell Edward (2016-01) - Journal article
    Zeolites are porous aluminosilicate materials that have found applications in many different technologies. But although simulations suggest that there are millions of possible zeolite topologies, just over 200 zeolite ...
  • Solution-processable silicon phthalocyanines in electroluminescent and photovoltaic devices 

    Zysman-Colman, Eli; Ghosh, Sanjay Sanatan; Xie, Guohua; Varghese, Shinto; Chowdhury, Mithun; Sharma, Nidhi; Cordes, David Bradford; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Samuel, Ifor David William (2016-04-13) - Journal article
    Phthalocyanines and their main group and metal complexes are important classes of organic semiconductor materials, but are usually highly insoluble so frequently need to be processed by vacuum deposition in devices. We ...
  • Inter- and intramolecular CF···C=O interactions on aliphatic and cyclohexane carbonyl derivatives 

    Cormanich, Rodrigo Antonio; Rittner, Roberto; O'Hagan, David; Buehl, Michael (2015) - Journal article
    The assessment of weak inter- and intra- molecular Cδ+Fδ-...Cδ+=Oδ- interactions were theoretically evaluated in 4 different sets of compounds at different theoretical levels. Intermolecular CH3F...C=O interactions were ...
