We herein present four highly fluorescent and stable D-π-D monomers (2), which were designed and synthesized using different types of aryl substituent as the donor via a Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction. We have studied these four symmetrical chromop... Read More about Synthesis and fluorescence emission properties of D-π-D monomers based on dithieno[3,2-b:2′,3′-d]thiophene.

Synthesis of mono-O-alkylated homooxacalix[3]arene and a protection–deprotection strategy for homooxacalix[3]arene (2016)
Journal Article
Elsegood, M. R. J., Elsegood, M. R., Wu, C., Ikejiri, Y., Zeng, X., Elsegood, M., …Yamato, T. (2017). Synthesis of mono-O-alkylated homooxacalix[3]arene and a protection–deprotection strategy for homooxacalix[3]arene. Organic Letters, 19(1), 66-69. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.orglett.6b03338

The regioselective synthesis of mono-O-alkylated homooxacalix[3]arene is accomplished for the first time. The synthetic route relies on two key steps: (i) a facile protection of two OH groups at the lower rim of the homooxacalix[3]arene and (ii) th...
