The oxidation of benzyl alcohol (BnOH) and a few para-substituted benzyl alcohols by tripropylammonium fluorochromate (TriPAFC) in dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO) leads to the formation of corresponding aldehydes. The reaction is first order each in TriPAFC and the alcohols. The reaction is catalysed by hydrogen ions. The hydrogen ion dependence has the form: kobs = a + b[H +]. The oxidation of α α′-dideuterio benzyl alcohol exhibited a substantial primary kinetic isotope effect (kH/k D = 5.45 at 303 K). Oxidation of benzyl alcohol was studied in 19 different organic solvents. The solvent effect has been analysed using Kamlet's and Swain's multiparametric equation. A mechanism involving a hydride ion transfer via chromate ester is proposed. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source

Perylene diimides are typical n-type organic semiconductors with interesting optical and electronic properties. Versatile properties of these compounds are deeply related to the morphologies of the self-assembled nanostructures. Self-assembled strong red fluorescent nanofibers of N,. N'-bis(1-dodecyl)perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic diimide (D-PTCDI) were successfully prepared by a solution based phase-transfer method. Morphology of the nanostructure was characterized by optical, fluorescence, scanning, and transmission electron microscopic techniques. Observed molecular self-assembly was supported by the computational predictions. Thin film of the D-PTCDI was casted on glass substrate by spin-coating. UV-vis absorption maximum of the thin film was shifted to longer wavelength than in solution. Conducting properties of the thin films were evaluated by current-voltage measurements. © 2012 Elsevier Inc. Source

Well-defined nanobelts with strong fluorescence were fabricated from a perylene tetracarboxylic diimide molecule modified with specific side-chain substitution. The new perylene diimide was characterised by 1H, 13C NMR, mass and IR spectral techniques. The photophysical and electrochemical properties were investigated by UV-vis absorption, fluorescence, differential scanning calorimetry and cyclic voltammetry. 1D nanobelt self-assembly of the compound was studied with optical, fluorescence and scanning electron microscopic techniques. The observed self-assembly was supported by computational studies using density functional theory and natural bond order analysis. The optimised molecule was fit into crystal space theoretically, and the observed band gap was correlated well with optical and electrical properties. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Effect of side-chain length on self-assembly, optical and electrochemical properties of N,N′-di(1-pentylbutyl)perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic bisimide and N,N′-di(1-hexylpentyl)perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic bisimide has been studied. The photo-physical, thermal and electrochemical properties were studied using UV-Vis and fluorescence, differential scanning calorimetry, and cyclic voltammetry, respectively. The molecules self-assembled as 1D - rods and molecular bundles, self-assembly was studied using SEM, optical and fluorescence microscopic techniques. The results concluded that the compound with short tail exhibits low solubility and self-assembled faster. The photo-physical properties of the compounds were not much affected by varying the alkyl chain length. The compounds geometries were optimized at 6-31G using DFT and the potentials were correlated with molecular orbitals. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

The oxidation kinetics of some para-substituted anilines by benzimidazolium fluorochromate (BIFC) have been studied in aqueous acetic acid media in the presence of perchloric acid. The reaction is first order with respect to both aniline and BIFC and is catalysed by a hydrogen ion. The rate data obey Hammett relationship. The products of oxidation are the corresponding azo benzenes. Based on the kinetic results and product analysis, a suitable mechanism has been proposed for the reaction of BIFC with anilines. © 2010.
