Journal ArticleDOI
Abstract: Using two-phase (water–toluene) reduction of AuCl4– by sodium borohydride in the presence of an alkanethiol, solutions of 1–3 nm gold particles bearing a surface coating of thiol have been prepared and characterised; this novel material can be handled as a simple chemical compound.

Journal ArticleDOI
Abstract: When silvery films of the semiconducting polymer, trans‘polyacetylene’, (CH)x, are exposed to chlorine, bromine, or iodine vapour, uptake of halogen occurs, and the conductivity increases markedly (over seven orders of magnitude in the case of iodine) to give, depending on the extent of halogenation, silvery or silvery-black films, some of which have a remarkably high conductivity at room temperature.

TL;DR: The endocyclic closure of nucleophilic centres to polarized double bonds to give five-membered rings is impeded by restrictions of geometry; these restrictions can be overcome in acid through the generation of oxonium or protonated forms.
Abstract: Three rules which have been found useful, on an empirical basis, to predict the relative facility of ring forming reactions are presented; the physical bases of such rules are described.

Journal ArticleDOI
Abstract: A series of novel air and water stable low melting salts based upon the 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium cation (EtMeim+) have been prepared and characterized; two salts, [EtMeim]BF4 and [EtMeim]MeCO2, are liquids under ambient conditions.

Journal ArticleDOI
Abstract: The ion exchange reaction of interlayer Na+ ions of a layered polysilicate kanemite with alkyltrimetnylammonium ions, followed by calcination, gives highly ordered mesoporous materials with a hexagonal array of uniform channels.
