JamesAbstractReported are the syntheses of ten, new disulfoxides, and four known ones, of the type R-S(O)-CH2)n-(O)S-R (n = 2 or 3, R = alkyl) that were formed by oxidizing the corresponding dithioethers, RS(CH2)nSR, using acid solutions of DMSO or H2O2 as oxidants. The disulfoxides were then reacted with either commercial RuCl3٠H2O, K3(RuCl6), or the so-called Ru ‘Blue’ or ‘Red’ solutions, in aqueous or alcohol (MeOH, EtOH) sol...

Here, graphene oxide-based gel electrolyte samples were prepared by exploiting Poly (vinyl alcohol) as the polymer matrix and H₃PO₄ as ion producer. There has been a significant improvement in ionic conductivity by adding a small amount of graphene oxide, 0.05 wt % and 0.1 ...

Firstly a series of polyfluorinated 2-alkynylanilines – the versatile building blocks – was synthesized by the Sonogashira reaction of o-iodoaniline with terminal alkynes. Then the transformations of the obtained 2,3,4-trifluo-6-alkynilanilines in the presence of KOH or PdCl2 in MeCN, and in the presence of monohydrate of p-toluenesulfonic aci...
