Synthesizing a stable radical polymer with a conjugated backbone seems like a natural way to introduce
conductivity to radical polymers, which are traditionally synthesized with insulating, nonconjugated backbones. For charge
storage applications that take advantage of the redox-active nature of stable radical polymers, enhanced conductivity would
improve performance.Chemistry of Materials. 2018;30(14), 4799–4807.
Materials with recycling and self-healing properties have gained
extensive attention in recent years because they can significantly
abate the detrimental effects of material consumption
and environmental pollution.Advanced Functional Materials. 2018;28(23), 1800560.
Furfural (FF) and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), produced
from dehydration of biorefinery pentose and hexose sugars,
have been widely regarded as two of the highest value platform
chemicals from biomass.ACS Sustainable Chem. Eng., 2019, 7 (2), pp 1980–1988
The formation of non-covalent directional interactions, such as hydrogen or halogen bonds, is
a central concept of materials design, which hinges on using small compact atoms of the 2nd
period, notably nitrogen and oxygen, as acceptors. Heavier atoms are much less prominent in
that context, and mostly limited to sulfur. Here, we report the experimental observation and
theoretical study of halogen bonds to phosphorus, arsenic and antimony in the solid state.
Combining 1,3,5-trifluoro-2,4,6-triiodobenzene with triphenylphosphine, -arsine, and -stibine
provides cocrystals based on I···P, I···As and I···Sb halogen bonds. The demonstration that
increasingly metallic pnictogens form halogen bonds sufficiently strong to enable cocrystal
formation is an advance in supramolecular chemistry which opens up opportunities in
materials science, as shown by colossal thermal expansion of the cocrystal involving I···Sb
halogen bonds.Nat Commun. 2019 Jan 4;10(1):61.
Ethyl (2e)-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)prop-2-enoate is a predicted metabolite generated by BioTransformer¹ that is produced by the metabolism of ethyl 3-phenylprop-2-enoate. It is generated by cyp2b6 enzyme via a p-hydroxylation-of-monosubstituted-benzene reaction. This p-hydroxylation-of-monosubstituted-benzene occurs in humans.ACS Sustainable Chem. Eng., 2018, 6 (4), pp 4958–4965
Fluoren-9-one is the simplest member of the class fluoren-9-ones that is 9H-fluorene bearing an oxo substituent at position 9. It has a role as a fungal xenobiotic metabolite.ACS Appl Mater Interfaces. 2018 Apr 18;10(15):12612-12617.
