Liebing, Phil ; Pitts, Cody Ross ; Reimann, Marc ; Trapp, Nils ; Rombach, David ; Bornemann, Dustin ; Kaupp, Martin ; Togni, Antonio (2021-03-03)

The analysis of crystal structures of SF5‐ or SF4‐containing molecules revealed that these groups are often surrounded by hydrogen or other fluorine atoms. Even though fluorine prefers F⋅⋅⋅H over F⋅⋅⋅F contacts, the latter appeared to be important in many compounds. In a significant number of datasets, the closest F⋅⋅⋅F contacts are below 95 % of the van der Waals distance of two F atoms. Moreo...

Cable reverberations during wireline distributed acoustic sensing measurements: their nature and methods for elimination

Martuganova, Evgeniia ; Stiller, Manfred ; Bauer, Klaus ; Henninges, Jan ; Krawczyk, Charlotte M. (2021-05-16)

The application of distributed acoustic sensing in borehole measurements allows for the use of fibre optic cables to measure strain. This is more efficient in terms of time and costs compared with the deploying of conventional borehole seismometers. Nevertheless, one known drawback for temporary deployment is represented by the freely hanging wireline cable slapping and ringing inside the casin...

Harris, Tomos G. A. A. ; Heidary, Nina ; Frielingsdorf, Stefan ; Rauwerdink, Sander ; Tahraoui, Abbes ; Lenz, Oliver ; Zebger, Ingo ; Fischer, Anna (2021-03-11)

In this work, we demonstrate that diazonium electrografting of biocompatible interfaces on transparent conducting oxide indium tin oxide (ITO) can be controlled and optimized to achieve low charge transfer resistance, allowing highly efficient electron transfer to an immobilized model enzyme, the oxygen‐tolerant [NiFe]‐hydrogenase from Ralstonia eutropha. The use of a radical scavenger enables ...

Preparation of Reinforced Anisometric Patchy Supraparticles for Self‐Propulsion

Oguztürk, H. Esra ; Bauer, Leona J. ; Mantouvalou, Ioanna ; Kanngieβ  er, Birgit ; Velev, Orlin D. ; Gradzielski, Michael (2021-05-05)

The preparation of fumed silica‐based anisometric supraparticles with well‐defined catalytically active patches suitable for self‐propulsion is presented here. These sub‐millimeter‐sized particles can self‐propel as they contain Pt‐covered magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles, where the Pt can decompose catalytically a “fuel” like H2O2 and thereby propel the supraparticles. By their magnetic propert...

Die mehrstufige Reaktionsabfolge beinhaltet die Dehydrierung des Amins zum Enamin an zwei Alkylresten und zwei elektrophile (eine inter- und eine intramolekular) Silylieru...

A Pseudotetrahedral Terminal Oxoiron(IV) Complex: Mechanistic Promiscuity in C−H Bond Oxidation Reactions

Warm, Katrin ; Paskin, Alice ; Kuhlmann, Uwe ; Bill, Eckhard ; Swart, Marcel ; Haumann, Michael ; Dau, Holger ; Hildebrandt, Peter ; Ray, Kallol (2021-02-15)

S=2 oxoiron(IV) species act as reactive intermediates in the catalytic cycle of nonheme iron oxygenases. The few available synthetic S=2 FeIV=O complexes known to date are often limited to trigonal bipyramidal and very rarely to octahedral geometries. Herein we describe the generation and characterization of an S=2 pseudotetrahedral FeIV=O complex 2 supported by the sterically demanding 1,4,7‐t...

At Long Last: The Me3Si Group as a Masked Alcohol

Roy, Avijit ; Oestreich, Martin (2021-01-26)

For a long time, the Me3Si group has been ostracized from the family of aryl‐ and heteroatom‐substituted congeners for the difficulties associated with its further chemoselective manipulation into another synthetically useful functional group. A hypervalent iodine reagent has now been shown to do exactly that by electrophilic demethylation. Coupled with the Tamao–Fleming oxidation, the Me3Si gr...

Efficient Tuning-Free l 1-Regression of Nonnegative Compressible Signals

Petersen, Hendrik Bernd ; Bah, Bubacarr ; Jung, Peter (2021-06-07)

In compressed sensing the goal is to recover a signal from as few as possible noisy, linear measurements with the general assumption that the signal has only a few non-zero entries. The recovery can be performed by multiple different decoders, however most of them rely on some tuning. Given an estimate for the noise level a common convex approach to recover the signal is basis pursuit denoising...
