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 ...
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 ...
Monomeric Germanium(II) Amides Bearing β-Diketiminato Ligands: Synthesis, Structural Characterization, and Thermal Properties
Germanium(II) compounds featuring β-diketiminate-type ligands are attractive for applications as nanoparticle precursors, imaging agents, and components of electronic devices. In this work, we report the synthesis of ...
The crystal structure of the title compound, [CoLi(C11H21N2O)Cl2(C4H8O)2], has monoclinic symmetry and comprises one heterometallic binuclear complex molecule in the asymmetric unit. The Co2+ cation is bonded to one oxygen ...
Synthesis and Crystal Structure of a Copper(II) Benzoate Complex Bearing a Bis-2,2′-Tetrahydrofuryl Peroxide Moiety
Complex [Cu2(ben)4·2THF−(η1–O2)]∞ (2) (ben=C6H5CO2− benzoate; THF=tetrahydrofuran) was isolated when a solution of Cu2(ben)4·2THF (1) in THF upon natural sunlight irradiation yields crystals suitable for single-crystal ...
Aggregation pheromone of palmetto weevil, Rhynchophorus cruentatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
5-Methyl-4-octanol is the major aggregation pheromone of the palmetto weevil,Rhynchophorus cruentatus (F.). The pheromone (cruentol) was identified by coupled gas chromatographic-electroantennographic (GC-EAD) analysis of ...
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.
Aggregation Pheromone of Palm Weevil, Dynamis borassi
4-Methyl-5-nonanol (1) is the male-produced aggregation pheromone of the palm weevil, Dynamis borassi (F.) from Colombia. The pheromone was identified by coupled gas chromatographic–electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) ...
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 ...
Organic Acids without a Carboxylic Acid Functional Group
(Journal of Chemical Education 77(7):910-915. July 2000, 2000-07)
This paper presents several organic molecules that have been labeled as acids but do not contain a carboxylic acid functional group. The rationale for the nomenclature and appropriate explanations for the apparent acidity ...
