- ItemThe first example of trimethylsilyl methylenenitronate reacting with aldehydes under an apparent Mukaiyama nitro-aldol reaction(Tetrahedron Letters, 2011-02-08) Pottie, Ian; MacDonald, Frank; Carneiroa, KarinaTrimethylsilyl methylenenitronate reacts with both aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes in the presence of catalytic amounts of scandium(III) triflate to form the Henry reaction products in low (25%) to good yields (77%). This is the first example of this silyl nitronate undergoing a nitro-aldol reaction under an acid environment.
- ItemHeat and temperature change experiment(Mount Saint Vincent University, 2020-06) Darvesh, KatherineThe purpose of this experiment is to explore heat transfer using a simple coffee cup calorimeter. We will examine two separate processes: one that transfers heat to the surroundings, and one that absorbs heat from the surroundings. Experiment video demo is available at https://youtu.be/R2HivPOCfCo
