      3,4,5-Triarylisothiazoles via C-C coupling chemistry 

      Christoforou, Irene C.; Koutentis, Panayiotis Andreas (2007)
      The regiocontrolled preparation of triarylisothiazoles is presented. 3-Halo-5-phenylisothiazole-4-carbonitriles, 1 (hal = Cl) and 18 (hal = I), are converted into the corresponding 4-bromo derivatives 5 (3-hal = Cl) and ...

      Photochemistry of an azido-functionalized cryptand: Controlling the reactivity of an extremely long-lived singlet aryl nitrene by complexation to alkali cations 

      Bucher, G.; Tönshoff, C.; Nicolaïdes, Andrew N. (2005)
      Photolysis of the cryptand 1, bearing an intraannular azido substituent, results in a complex photochemistry. Low-temperature photolysis yields the triplet nitrene 32, which has been characterized by EPR spectroscopy. Small ...

      Strengthened Chernoff-type variance bounds 

      Afendras, Georgios; Papadatos, Nickos (2014)
      Let X be an absolutely continuous random variable from the integrated Pearson family and assume that X has finite moments of any order. Using some properties of the associated orthonormal polynomial system, we provide a ...

      Topochemical transformations of substituted cyclopentanone transition metal adducts 

      Theocharis, Charis R. (2002)
      The application of chelation to transition metal ions as a means of controlling the packing motifs of substituted catechols and of substituted malonates has been studied. Substituted malonates have been shown to be capable ...
