The Passerini reaction is a classical and well-known multicomponent reaction for accessing α-acyloxy amides. A single reactant replacement (SRR) approach of Passerini reaction is described, which involves aldehydes, carboxylic acids, and ynamides to constitute a one-pot synthesis of β-acyloxy amides in a convergent manner. When this method was subject to intramolecular reaction, the process would produce phthalide products. The scalability was demonstrated, and a crossover reaction was conducted to elucidate a plausible mechanism...

Bimetallic nanoparticles have been the subject of numerous research studies in the nanotechnology field, in particular for catalytic applications. Control of the size, morphology and composition has become a key challenge due to the relationship between these parameters and the catalytic behavior of the particles in terms of activity, selectivity and stability. Here, we present a one-pot air synthesis of 2 nm Ni9Pt1 nanoparticles with a narrow size distribution. Control of the size and composition of the alloy particles is achieved at ambient temperature, in the aqueous phase, by the simultaneous reduction of nickel and platinum precursor with hydrazine, using a reverse micro-emulsion system...

Substituted anilines containing a sulfonyl group may be oxidized in situ in the presence of methanol and a hypervalent iodine reagent to form an active iminium species. Subsequent addition of phosphines or phosphites in the same pot produces meta-substituted anilines in good yields. This formal C-H bond functionalization is a direct and efficient means of selectively substituting the meta-position of anilines to produce aromatic phosphonium ions or phosphonates.

The first synthesis of unsymmetric diaryliodonium salts directly from iodine and arenes is presented. The methodology provides diaryliodonium salts with the trimethoxyphenyl (TMP) moiety as dummy group. The protocol avoids the customary use of iodoarenes, which can be both expensive and toxic. Excess reagents are not required, and the reactions are performed under mild conditions. O-Arylations with these TMP salts were demonstrated to be highly chemoselective.

Green fluoride-free superhydrophobic hierarchical flowerlike iron-containing MnO2 particles were synthesized by a simple one-pot approach and subsequently modified by stearic acid. The special selective wettability toward water and oil makes the particle can be used in oil-in-water emulsion separation. In addition, the particle also can be applied as absorption material to remove dyes which are serious water contaminants. More importantly, as for the mixture of emulsion and dye, the particles also have the ability to remove both oil and dye, making the particles potential for wastewater purification in the future...

The concise and efficient total syntheses of the naturally-occurring coumarin derivatives gerberinol I, and the pterophyllins 2 and 4, from 5-methyl-4-hydroxycoumarin as a common precursor employing different Casnati-Skattebøl reaction conditions, are reported. The synthesis of the key intermediate coumarin was achieved by the organocatalytic condensation of acetylacetone and crotonaldehyde followed by a LiCl-assisted cyclization, CuCl2-promoted aromatization and a final Et2CO3-mediated cyclization. A Casnati-Skattebøl formylation under high-temperature conditions afforded gerberinol I, whereas milder conditions resulted in an unstable 3-formyl-4-hydroxycoumarin derivative, which was subjected to a basic alumina-mediated one pot O-alkylation with chloroacetone and intramolecular aldolization to furnish pterophyllin 4...

Recently, ultrafiltration (UF) membranes faced great challenges including the fine control of the membrane surfaces for high filtration performances and antifouling properties in treating complex solution systems. Here, a particular type of amphiphilic block copolymers polyethylene glycol-block-polysulfone-block-polyethylene glycol (PEG-b-PSf-b-PEG) was synthesized through one-pot step-growth polymerization with mPEG as two ends to achieve the mobility of hydrophilic polymer chains. Without any other polymers or additives involved, the PEG-b-PSf-b-PEG triblock copolymer UF membrane was fabricated through the non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS) method...

The goal of this study was to confirm the vasopressor and cardiac effects of POTENAY(®) INJETÁVEL (POT), a mephentermine-based product, given to cattle with induced vascular/cardiac depression. Ten healthy Holstein cattle (206 ± 13 kg) followed a randomized-complete-block design (RCBD) utilizing crossover study design. Each animal randomly received (1 ml/25 kg, IM) of either POT (n = 10) or volume-matched placebo control (0.9%NaCl, CP, n = 10). A subset of animals (n = 5) received POT first (day 0) while the remaining (n = 5) received CP; after a six-day washout period, cattle received the opposite compound...

Reported herein are practical approaches for the chemoselective mono-, di-, and tri-iodination of alkynes based on efficient oxidative iodinations catalyzed by hypervalent iodine reagents. The reaction conditions were systematically optimized by altering the iodine source and/or the hypervalent iodine reagent system. The tetrabutylammonium iodide (TBAI)/(diacetoxyiodo)benzene (PIDA) system is specific for mono-iodination, while the KI/PIDA system results in di-iodination. Combining the TBAI/PIDA and KI/PIDA systems in one pot provided the corresponding tri-iodination products efficiently...

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the allelopathy of living Myriophyllum aquaticum and its straw has the same effects; two pot experiments were conducted to study the effects of intercropping using M. aquaticum and its straw on the growth and cadmium (Cd) accumulation of Nasturtium officinale. Different planting ratios (1:3, 2:2 and 3:1) of N. officinale and M. aquaticum led to an increase in the biomass of both plant species and increased the Cd content in roots and shoots of N. officinale, but led to a reduction in the Cd content in roots and shoots of M...

Here, using (poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-oleic acid)-g-chitosan ((PNIPAAm-co-OA)-g-CS), CS copolymer-gold hybrid nanoparticles (CGH NPs) were synthesized by autoreduction of auric cations (HAuCl4) in aqueous solution in the absence of any other reducing agent. The engineered thermo-sensitive CS copolymer with free amino groups could reduce auric cations and stabilized the resultant NPs. CGH NPs were prepared using different concentrations of CS copolymer (0.1-1% w/v) and HAuCl4 (50-500μL, 0.2% w/v). They were characterized in terms of structure, surface Plasmon band, zeta potential, atomic absorption, stability, size and size distribution...

Anaphylaxis is a systemic, life threatening disorder triggered by mediators released by mast cells and basophils activated via allergic (IgE-mediated) or non-allergic (non-IgE-mediated) mechanisms. It is a rapidly evolving, multisystem process involving the integumentary, pulmonary, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular systems. Anaphylaxis and angioedema are serious disorders that can lead to fatal airway obstruction and culminate in cardiorespiratory arrest resulting in hypoxemia and/or shock. Often, these disorders can be appropriately managed in an outpatient setting...

Dickeya solani is one of the most important pectinolytic phytopathogens responsible for high losses in potato, especially in seed potato production in Europe. Lytic bacteriophages can affect the structure of the host population and may influence spread, survival and virulence of the pathogen and in consequence, infection of the plant. In this study, we aimed to acquire information on the viability of the broad host lytic bacteriophage ΦD5 on potato, as well as to apprehend the specific effect of this bacteriophage on its host D...

A de novo Palladium carbon catalyzed synthesis of tri-substituted nicotinonitriles from easily synthesized homopropagylic or homoallylic aromatic alcohols in presence of nitriles has been explored. The mechanism proceeds with an interesting generation of Pd(II) -C palladacycle followed by an oxidative aromatization to generate the pyridine core. The pyridine core is generated with a noteworthy C-C bond cleavage incase with the substituted nitriles. The moderate yields and easy separation of the products delivers a unique importance to this one pot methodology...
