Very desirable yet challenging atom-economical transformation.
Rate = k[substrate]0[Ln]1
Hydroamination carried out on:
1,2-disubstituted internal aminoalkene, aminoallene and aminodiene.
Identical rate law for all substrates.
Rate decreasing with increasing Ln3+ radius (aminoalkynes) and maximize at intermediate radius for aminoallenes (Y3+ >Sm3+ >Lu3+ >La3+ ).
Lanthanides having the largest ionic radii exhibit the greatest turnover frequencies as well as enantioselectivities.
Exhibits good rates and enantioselectivities, comparable
to or greater than those achieved with chiral C1-
symmetric organolanthanocene catalysts.
Toward the Ideal Organic Light-Emitting Diode; nanoscale tailoring of the anode/HTL interfaces.
Toward N-type semiconductors
Gate dielectrics for low-voltage Organic Field Effect Transistors.
PLED devices: ITO/SAM or HTL/PFO/Ca/AL
Low temp fabrication, crosslinking(insolubility), ultrathin, huge k/d ratios and low leakage current.
Film pinhole assay by cyclic voltammetry using bare ITO (dotted line) and nanodielectrics III coated ITO as working electrodes (solid line).
Measurement of nanodielectric capacitance–voltage electrical characteristics at 104 Hz.
Perfluorinated thiophenes were investigated and regiochemistry, core length was found to affect OFET performance.
