Blake Bordokas

The liquid crystalline phase is a sensitive state of matter in which molecules exist between a solid and a liquid. Molecules in this state possess the ability to be reoriented by an electric field, which makes them extremely useful in display technology for devices such as computer monitors, smart phones, etc. A group of bent-core liquid crystalline compounds show a particularly unique type of liquid crystal phase that has promising traits which could be exploited to improve display technology. In this project we propose a simpler, more cost effective synthesis for these liquid crystals which we hope will allow us ...

Stereospecific Electrophilic Fluorination Of Alkylcarbastannatrane Reagents, Xinghua Ma

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The introduction of fluorine atoms into organic molecules significantly changes their physical, chemical, and biological properties. Fluorinated organic compounds are used as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, materials, and tracers for positron emission tomography (PET). For example, the site-specific fluorination of drugs can block sites of phase I metabolism by cytochrome P450 enzymes as well as improve target-binding affinities. In view of the unique features of fluorine-containing compounds, there has been increasing interest in the development of novel methods for the synthesis of fluorinated molecules, especially the site-specific monofluorination of complex molecules. Herein, we present the enantiospecific conversion of chiral secondary alkylcarbastannatranes into ...


Synthesis Of Healable Organic Semiconductor Through Dioxaborolane Bond, Junchen Liu, William W. Mcnutt, Jianguo Mei 2017 Purdue University

Synthesis Of Healable Organic Semiconductor Through Dioxaborolane Bond, Junchen Liu, William W. Mcnutt, Jianguo Mei

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

The field of organic semiconductors have gained enormous attention the past few decades. Organic materials offer numerous advantages over their inorganic counterparts. Recently a number of works have demonstrated organic semiconductors with healable properties. We aim to investigate the healable ability of an organic semiconductor by mimicking a vitrimer system through the reversible dioxaborolane bond. Vitrimers are polymers with reversible crosslink system. It has been reported that the use of the borane-oxygen bond as the crosslink showed good mechanical performance. The electrical properties will be inspected for the vitrimer-like polymer. In this report we describe a Diketopyrrolopyrrole base polymer incorporating ...

Enantioselective Γ- And Δ -Borylation Of Unsaturated Carbonyl Derivatives: Synthesis, Mechanistic Insights, And Applications., Gia L. Hoang

Student Research Projects, Dissertations, and Theses - Chemistry Department

Chiral boronic esters are valuable synthetic intermediates widely used in a variety of stereospecific transformations. Transition metal-catalyzed asymmetric hydroboration (CAHB) of alkenes is among the most popular methods for their preparation. Enantioselective hydroboration of activated alkenes (i.e., vinyl arene derivatives or conjugated carbonyl compounds) have been extensively studied by many research groups. We, on the other hand, are interested in enantioselective hydroboration of unactivated alkenes utilizing coordinating functional groups (e.g., carbonyl derivatives) to give functionalized, chiral boronic esters. While conjugate addition and C–H activation methodologies provide efficient alternatives to CAHB for enantioselective beta-borylation of carbonyl compounds, direct ...


The Functionalization Of N-Cyclobutylanilines Under Photoredox Catalysis, Jiang Wang 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Functionalization Of N-Cyclobutylanilines Under Photoredox Catalysis, Jiang Wang

Theses and Dissertations

While transition metal catalyzed cross coupling reactions have become one of the most useful strategies in constructing carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond formations, major disadvantages such as high reaction temperature, expansive metal catalysts input and limited reaction substrates scope have significantly downshifted the applications of those two electron involved transformations. Comparably, the studies on the redox coupling reactions are less investigated. Derived from single electron transfer process, the redox coupling reactions can be used to construct otherwise challenging chemical bonds efficiently, such as Csp3-Csp3 bond. Recently, visible light mediated photoredox catalysis has merged as a highly prominent tool in the development ...

Synthesis And Catalytic Evaluation Of Novel C-Alpha-Methyl-Beta-Proline Analogues, And Concise Synthetic Approach To Nh-Fmoc-S-Trityl-C-Alpha-Methyl Cysteine, Hari Kiran Kotapati

Dissertations

In the field of chemistry there is a growing demand for small molecule organocatalysts such as amino acids, more specifically proline and its analogues, which could catalyze various key chemical reactions in the synthesis of several biologically important molecules. Even though natural proline is reported to catalyze various chemical reactions, its use as organocatalyst is limited mainly due to the solubility issues in the reaction media and high catalyst loadings, which is not very ideal for bulk scale manufacturing. To address these limitations we planned to develop unnatural analogues of proline that could catalyze the reactions with lower catalyst loadings ...


Synthesis And Characterization Of Benzalkonium Salts As Potential Antimicrobial Agents, Saad S. Alotaibi 2017 Clark Atlanta University

Synthesis And Characterization Of Benzalkonium Salts As Potential Antimicrobial Agents, Saad S. Alotaibi

Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University

One of the most significant classes of industrial chemicals is benzalkonium salts. Benzalkonium salts have application in large number of commercial products. Benzalkonium salts enhance cationic surface activity and this particular property results in the salts being useful biocides, detergents, and disinfectants. Their antimicrobial activities depend on the structure of the side alkyl chain. For instance, long alkyl chains of C12 were most effective against fungi, yeast, and ophthalmic solution, C14 were effective against gram-positive bacteria, and C16 were effective against gram-negative bacteria. To add them to the databank of structure activity relationships (SAR) of benzalkonium salts ...

Functional And Structural Studies Of Cytochromes P450 By Resonance Raman Spectroscopy, Yilin Liu 2017 Marquette University

Functional And Structural Studies Of Cytochromes P450 By Resonance Raman Spectroscopy, Yilin Liu

Dissertations (2009 -)

Cytochrome P450 is a broad class of heme monooxygenase enzymes which catalyze various oxidative transformations. There are two main kinds of mammalian P450s: steroidogenic and drug metabolizing P450s. The first project involves a steroidogenic P450, CYP17A1, occupying a central role in the biosynthesis of steroid hormones. It catalyzes hydroxylation reaction on pregnenolone and progesterone, generating 17OH-pregnenolone and 17OH-progesterone, presumably utilizing a “Compound I” species. However, these hydroxylated products can be further processed in a second oxidative cycle to cleave the C17–C20 bond to form dehydroepiandrosterone or androstenedione, respectively, a crucial step in androgen production. Interestingly, it is well known ...
