Their findings have been published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) on February 4, 2024.
Abstract Recently, transition-metal terminal nonoxo complexes have shown a remarkable ability to activate and functionalize C–H bonds via proton-coupled electron transfer (PCET). Here we report the first example of a mononuclear manganese(I... Read More
Nanoscale Manipulation of Exciton–Trion Interconversion in a MoSe2 Monolayer via Tip-Enhanced Cavity-Spectroscopy
Their findings have been published in the December 2023 issue of Nano Letters.
Abstract Emerging light–matter interactions in metal–semiconductor hybrid platforms have attracted considerable attention due to their potential applications in optoelectronic devices. Here, we demonstrate plasmon-induced near-field manipul... Read More
Their findings have been published in the online version of the prestigious journal, Angewande Chemie International Edition on December 11, 2023.
Abstract Increasing the chemical diversity of organic semiconductors is essential to develop efficient electronic devices. In particular, the replacement of carbon-carbon (C−C) bonds with isoelectronic boron-nitrogen (B−N) bonds allows prec... Read More
Closed-Loop Recycling of Organic Flexible Electronic Devices Paves the Way for Sustainable Wearable Electronics
Their findings have been published in the online version of Nature Electronics on December 16, 2023.
Abstract Flexible organic electronics can be used to create wearable devices but the synthesis of organic electronic materials typically involves hazardous solvents, creates toxic by-products and has various other environmental and economic... Read More
Professor Changho Yoo in the Department of Chemistry at UNIST developed nickel-based catalysts to replace precious metals, such as rhodium.
Abstract Millions of tons of acetyl derivatives such as acetic acid and acetic anhydride are produced each year. These building blocks of chemical industry are elaborated into esters, amides, and eventually polymer materials, pharmaceutical... Read More
Revolutionary Breakthrough in Nitrile Activation Unveils Promising Pathway for Anticancer Precursor Synthesis
The study findings have been published in the online version of JACS Au on October 31, 2023.
Abstract The versatile applications of nitrile have led to the widespread use of nitrile activation in the synthesis of pharmacologically and industrially valuable compounds. We reported the activation of nitriles using mononuclear cobalt(I... Read More
