Selective fluoride recognition with ferroceneboronic acid
Journal of the Chemical Society, Chemical Communications 1995
Dusemund, K. R. A. Sandanayake and S. Shinkai, J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun. 3, 333 (1995).Redox active ferroceneboronic acid 1 has excellent selectivity in the electrochemical recognition of fluoride ions in the presence of other halides and common anions.
Selective Molecular Recognition of Disaccharides by a Biphenyldiboronic Acid at the Air – Water Interface
Dusemund, M. Mikami and S. Shinkai, Chem. Lett., 157 (1995).A biphenyldiboronic acid derivative can be used for molecular recognition of disaccharides at the air-water interface. Disaccharides are detected selectively because of the fixed distance between the boronic acid moieties in the molecule and the organized structure of the monolayer.
Investigations on Conducting Polymer Films with a Fast Electrochemical Quartz Crystal Microbalance
Dusemund, G. Schwitzgebel, Ber. Bunsenges. Phys. Chem. 95, 1543 (1991).A fast electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) is presented, by means of which it is possible to obtain a resolution of a few nanograms within a measuring time of one millisecond. So, mass changes accompanying cyclic voltammetry (CV) of high scan rates as well as step experiments can be recorded
Dusemund, G. Schwitzgebel, Synth. Met. 55-57, 1396 (1993).By the aid of a fast electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM) it is possible to obtain a resolution in the range of nanograms with measuring times of one millisecond, enabling us to use high scan rates (some volts/second) in the cyclic voltammetry (CV).
Yamamoto, A. Ori, K. Ueda, C. Dusemund and S. Shinkai, J. Chem. Soc., Chem. Commun., 407(1996).F– and saccharides which feature specific affinity with the bornic acid group can be detected visually by the redox reaction between ferrocenylboronic acid derivatives and dyes with the appropriate redox potentials.
