A short and efficient route is described for both isomers of aziridine derived from the commercially available 1:1 mixture of limonene oxides. The process is amenable to scale-up and allows easy access to multigram quantities of these useful chiral building blocks.

    Kinetic studies of the Wallach rearrangements of four azoxypyridines, four azoxypyridine N-oxides, and one azoxypyridine N-methiodide have been carried out in the 100% H2SO4 acidity region. For all of the β-isomers in the study the reactions proceeded at a spectrally measurable rate, and the...

    The equation-of-motion coupled-cluster singles and doubles (EOM-CCSD) method has been implemented into the massively parallel ACES III program using two alternative strategies: (1) storing the entire EOM Hamiltonian matrix prior to diagonalization and (2) recomputing the four-virtual part of the...

    We have employed ab initio molecular dynamics to investigate the stability of the smallest gold cages, namely Au16 and Au17, at finite temperatures. First, we obtain the ground state structure along with at least 50 distinct isomers for both the clusters. This is followed by the finite...

For late transition metal compounds or...
