Electrically tunable lasers made from electro-optically active photonics band gap materials

Haiping Yu; Benjamin Y. Tang; Jianhui Li; Le Li (2005)
Publisher: Figshare
External cavity-free and electrically tunable laser made from photonics band gap (PBG) materials with electrically tunable stop band is reported. The tunable PBG materials are developed from a family of novel cholesteric liquid crystals (CLC) with electrically variable pitch that adopts a non-constant distribution in space across the CLC film. The CLC exhibits a distributed feedback cavity whose resonant frequency can be electrically varied over a spectral range wider than 300 nm. Under an op...

Total Synthesis of Absinthin

(+)-Absinthin, a structurally unique triterpene, has been efficiently constructed in nine reaction steps and in 18.6% overall yield from O-acetylisophotosantonic lactone. The synthesis features Mitsunobu arylselenylation, oxidative elimination of allylic arylselenides, biomimetic dimerization via regio- and stereospecific Diels−Alder reaction, and a four-step stereochemical inversion of a highly sterically congested tertiary alcohol. This approach has not only tackled the formidable synthetic...

Infinite-Basis Calculations of Binding Energies for the Hydrogen Bonded and Stacked Tetramers of Formic Acid and Formamide and Their Use for Validation of Hybrid DFT and ab Initio Methods

Zhao, Yan; Truhlar, Donald G. (2005)
Publisher: Figshare
Benchmark stabilization energies for planar H-bonded and stacked structures of formic acid tetramers and formamide tetramers were determined as the sum of the infinite basis set limit of MP2 energies and a CCSD(T) correction term evaluated with the 6-31G*(0.25) basis set. The infinite basis (IB) set limit of MP2 energies was determined by two-point extrapolation using the aug-cc-pVXZ basis sets for X = D and T and separate extrapolation of the Hartree−Fock and correlation energies wi...

Gold-Catalyzed Assembly of Heterobicyclic Systems

Zhang, Liming; Kozmin, Sergey A. (2005)
Publisher: Figshare
We have described an efficient gold-catalyzed double cyclization of 1,5-enynes to afford a range of heterobicyclic compounds, including oxabicylclo[3.2.1]octenes, azabicyclo[3.2.1]octenes, oxaspiro[5.4]decene, azaspiro[5.4]decene, oxaspiro[5.5]undecene, oxabicyclo[4.3.0]nonene, azabicyclo[4.3.0]nonene, and oxabicyclo[4.4.0]decene. The mechanism of this reaction is proposed to involve a chemoselective gold-based alkyne activation, carbocyclization, intramolecular nucleophilic addition, followe...
