The study of energy transport through molecules has gathered much attention in recent years due to its crucial role in the operation of a host of nano-devices. Understanding the details of such processes can aid in the development of novel molecular electronics and nanophononic devices. Over the...
Triplet-Triplet Energy Transfer in Organic Synthesis: Efforts toward a Chiral Lewis Acid Catalyzed De Mayo Reaction and Investigations of a Photoactive Ruthenium(polypyridyl)-NHC ComplexDownload
The fundamentals of energy transfer catalysis and its application in [2+2] photocycloadditions are thoroughly discussed. The De Mayo reaction is a UV light-promoted [2+2] photocycloaddition between enolic β-diketones and olefins that has been used to form α-substituted 1,5-diketones. Its...
Expanding the Scope of Boronic Acid Catalysis: New and Improved Reactivity, Asymmetric TransformationDownload
Catalysis is one of the 12 Principles of green chemistry and offers numerous advantages over the conventional stoichiometric chemical procedures, such as reduction of waste, better atom economy, and lower energy consumption. Furthermore, the ability to lower the activation energy allows direct...
Peptides can elicit a whole host of beneficial physiological effects. The market for peptide-based therapeutics is rapidly expanding due to their extreme specificity and low toxicity. Conversely, they often possess poor bioavailability, stability, pharmacokinetics and cell permeability, limiting...
High Resolution Rotational Spectroscopic Studies of the Dynamics and Conformations of Dispersion and Hydrogen Bonded Molecular ComplexesDownload
High resolution rotational spectra of non-covalently bonded molecular clusters produced in a supersonic jet expansion can provide detailed and rich information about their structure-energy relationship and dynamical behaviors. In this thesis, several non-covalently bonded molecular clusters which...
Archipelago Model Compound Synthesis by Rhodium-catalyzed Annulations of Island-tethered Alkynes with Aromatic SubstratesDownload
Asphaltenes are the most complex constituents in bitumen. They are distinguished from other components in bitumen by high density, high viscosity and a strong tendency to form aggregates in solutions. Asphaltene aggregates may precipitate as a result of small environmental changes, which is...
Conformations of, and Non-covalent Interactions in, binary fluoroalcohol∙∙∙1,4-dioxane aggregates: Rotational Spectroscopic and DFT studiesDownload
Conformations of, and non-covalent interactions in, binary aggregates of 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol (HFIP) and 1-phenyl-2,2,2-trilfuoroethanol (PhTFE) with 1,4-dioxane were investigated. These fluoroalcohols and 1,4-dioxane are common solvents for organic reactions. Rotational spectra of...
