Activating esters for synthesizing bioactive derivatives
Esters have been identified to act as a new and clean coupling partner for the carbon-carbon bond forming cross-coupling reaction to make useful compounds for pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and organic materials. In a new collaborative study published online in Nature Communications, synthetic ...
A route to developing ultimate superconducting nano-devices
A research group at Tohoku University has succeeded in fabricating an atomically thin, high-temperature superconductor film with a superconducting transition temperature (Tc) of up to 60 K (-213°C). The team, led by Prof. Takashi Takahashi (WPI-AIMR) and Asst. Prof. Kosuke Nakayama (Dept. of ...
By observing the shift in eigenstates of coupled microcantilevers, researchers can measure nanogram-scale mass in a liquid environment with extreme accuracy
Working with a device that slightly resembles a microscopically tiny tuning fork, researchers at the University of Tsukuba in Japan have recently developed coupled microcantilevers that can make mass measurements on the order of nanograms with only a 1 percent margin of error - potentially ...
Pollutants emitted by factories and car exhausts affect humans who breathe in these harmful gases and also aggravate climate change up in the atmosphere. Being able to detect such emissions is a critically needed measure.New research by the Nanoparticles by Design Unit at the Okinawa Institute of ...
International team led by Tohoku University opens new route for discovering high Tc superconductors
An international research team, led by Professor Kosmas Prassides of Tohoku University, has investigated the electronic properties of the family of unconventional superconductors based on fullerenes which have the highest known superconducting critical temperature (Tc) among molecular ...
A University of Tokyo research group has succeeded in synthesizing (R)- and (S)-rolipram, the active component of a medicine, in high yield with high selectivity by a catalyzed flow fine synthesis instead of the traditional batch method used in the production of 99% of medicines.Professor Shu ...
A bulky catalyst induces pinpoint targeting on benzene to create bioactive molecules
Tuning the para position of benzene moieties is significant for creating biologically active compounds and optoelectronic materials. Yet, attaching a functional handle specifically at the para position of benzene has been challenging due to multiple reactive sites on the ring. Chemists at ITbM, ...
Studies by researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology have developed a catalyst that is so effective at promoting dissociation of the nitrogen bond in ammonia production reactions that it is no longer the step limiting the rate of the reaction.Ammonia (NH3) is crucial for the industrial ...
BASF andToda Kogyo Corp. formally established “BASF TODA Battery Materials LLC” with the closing of their joint venture agreement announced in October 2014. The new company will provide cathode active materials (CAM) for lithium-ion batteries in Japan.BASF TODA Battery Materials was established ...
Precisely controlled synthesis of structurally uniform carbon sheets could advance nanographene materials science
Commercially available hydrocarbons were used as templates to synthesize uniform nanographene sheets using a series of sheet extending agents and a new transition metal catalyst, which were developed by Kyohei Ozaki, Katsuaki Kawasumi, Mari Shibata, Hideto Ito, and Professor Kenichiro Itami at ...
