General Chemistry Without Orbitals
We illustrate the solutions of Schroedinger's equation for the hydrogen atom in coordinates of all four systems, and differentiate the applicability of orbitals in these four systems. We present reasons that future textbooks ...
Reactivity and structure of derivatives of 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone (lawsone)
The structures of two derivatives of 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone (lawsone) are examined using the density functional theory (DFT) hybrid functional B3LYP. Using the optimized structure of lawsone acetate, the reactivity ...
Efficient syntheses of streptocarpone and (±)-a-dunnione
An efficient divergent synthesis of both streptocarpone and racemic α-dunnione from lawsone are described. A one-pot, formal [3+2] cyclization to form a furanonaphthoquinone directly provided a common intermediate.
Crystal structure of (E)-2-(tert-butylamino)-4-(tertbutylimino)naphthalen-1(4H)-one
The title compound, C18H24N2O, is the first example of a naphthoquinone imine derivative isolated in the 4-imine/2-amine tautomeric form having bulky alkyl substituents at the N atoms. The molecular conformation is stabilized ...
Neutral organic redox pairs based on sterically hindered hydroquinone/benzoquinone derivatives for dye-sensitized solar cells
Substituted derivatives of hydroquinone/benzoquinone were studied as organic redox mediators in the electrolyte for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Thus, di-tert-butylhydroquinone (DTHQ), thymohydroquinone (ThymHQ) and ...
Synthesis of Iodinated Naphthoquinones Using Morpholine-Iodine Complex
(Synthetic Communications Vol. 34, No. 18, pp. 3389–3397, 2004, 2004)
The efficient synthesis of 2‐hydroxy‐3‐iodo‐1,4‐naphthoquinone (3), 2‐amino‐3‐iodo‐1,4‐naphthoquinone (4), and 2‐iodo‐1,4‐naphthoquinone (5) have been developed using the parent naphthoquinone in combination with the ...
Synthesis of 2-hydroxy-3-substituted naphthoquinones using the Heck reaction
An efficient Heck coupling of 2-hydroxy-3-iodo-naphthoquinone with a series of electron-deficient alkenes in aqueous solution has been accomplished. The method is characterized by simple conditions and facile work-up to ...
Synthesis and biological evaluation of novel ferrocene–naphthoquinones as antiplasmodial agents
This work deals with the synthesis and evaluation of new compounds designed by combination of 1,4-naphthoquinone and ferrocene fragments in a 3-ferrocenylmethyl-2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone arrangement. A practical coupling ...
Sudoku Puzzles for First-Year Organic Chemistry Students
We use sudoku puzzles to help the students (i) learn the correspondence between the names of the amino acids, their abbreviations, and codes and (ii) learn the correspondence between the names of the functional groups, ...
Crystal structure of 4-[(adamantan-1-yl)amino]naphthalene-1,2-dione
The title compound, C20H21NO2, an example of a stable 1,2-naphthoquinone, was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis at 100 K. This structure illustrates steric buttressing of the adamantanyl group, forcing ...
