The electrophilic addition of bromine to dimethyl 7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2,5-diene-2,3-dicarboxylate 10 at 0 and -60 degreesC led in high yield to the formation of dibromide 11. However, high-temperature bromination of 10 in carbon tetrachloride at 77 degreesC gave four products 12-15, three of them with nonrearranged skeleton. Similarly, bromination of the dibromides 14 and 15 at 77 degreesC yielded the nonrearranged tetrabromides 13 and 16, respectively. The structure of the tetrabromide 13 was solved by single-crystal X-ray analysis. The formation mechanism is discussed and supported by calculations.


Enhanced solubility of siloxy-modified polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes in supercritical carbon dioxide
Demirtas, Cansu; Dilek Hacıhabiboğlu, Çerağ (Elsevier BV, 2019-01-01)
Alkyl siloxy functionalization increases the solubility of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) in supercritical carbon dioxide over an order of magnitude compared to its counterpart with fluoroalkyl groups. The studied component, octatrimethylsiloxy POSS also exhibits higher solubility than other previously studied POSS types with various alkyl and methacryl groups. The octatrimethylsiloxy POSS-CO2 solid-vapor equilibrium curves have been constructed at temperatures between 308 and 328 K by measuri...
AM1 treatment of phenylboronic acid esters of glycerol
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-14)
Phenylboronic acid esters of glycerol, which involve 1,2- and 1,3-sites of glycerol for esterification followed by complex formation with the remaining -OH group of glycerol have been considered for AM1(RHF) type semiempirical quantum chemical calculations, in vacuum as well as in aqueous medium. All the species were found to be stable and exothermic. The stability order among the various species considered was established. 1,2-type ester in vacuum or aqueous medium was found to be more stable than the resp...
Phase Behavior of Carbon Dioxide and Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes with Two Different Functional Groups
Dumanlilar, Beril; Dilek Hacıhabiboğlu, Çerağ (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Phase behavior of carbon dioxide and polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) modified with two different functional groups is studied in the temperature range of 308-323 K, up to 22 MPa. Different than the common types, one of the eight functional groups attached to the Si atoms of these POSS is a CO2-philic functional group, methacryl, while the rest are branched alkyl chains, either isooctyl (MIOPOSS) or isobutyl (MIBPOSS). Methacrylisobutyl POSS-CO2 binary system exhibits pressure-induced melting te...
Cyclacenes having mono boron or nitrogen atom in the backbone - a theoretical study
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Gumus, S (Elsevier BV, 2004-04-09)
Semi-empirical molecular orbital treatment at the level of AMI unrestricted Hartree-Fock type calculations was performed on the Huckel type boron and nitrogen substituted cyclacenes. Substitution is done either in a peri position or a fusion points. Boron substitution is found to be destabilizing. whereas nitrogen substitution has stabilizing effect on parent cyclacenes.
Buckministerfullerene (C-60) encapsulated ground state atoms: semi-empirical approximate effective volume relations
Jalbout, AF; Türker, Burhan Lemi (Elsevier BV, 2003-11-03)
An AM I investigation of the molar volumes changes with values of Z for various atoms is investigated. Essentially all values for Z are decreasing according an exponential decay function for both cases of the complex atomic molar volumes, verses the molar radii computed (this is the so-called a(0) value which is recommended radius which is 0.5 Angstrom larger than the radius corresponding to the computed volume). Our calculations suggest the following relation for the X-Z(0,0,0) (Z = nuclear charge, and (0,...
