A Facile Route to New and Old Cyclophanes from a Pnictogen-activated Self-Assembly Reaction
The well-defined topology and high strain of cyclophanes has found utility in a number of applications including asymmetric catalysis, insulating plastics, and organic electronics. Unfortunately, the field of cyclophane chemistry has been hindered by a lack of high yielding and functional group tolerant preparative methods for their synthesis. T...

Synthesis of Solution Precursors From Aluminum and Gallium Bulk Minerals/Materials
The inventors developed novel methods for producing Keggin-like structures containing 13 metal ions ranging from all Gallium to all Aluminum to mixed metals of metal ions including combinations of Gallium, Aluminum, and Indium. These clusters are preorganized with the desired stoichiometry, which makes them ideal synthetic precursors for thin film...
