Sadoway, MIT, carried out exploratory studies into the technological feasibility of the synthesis of diamond-like carbon films from solution (as opposed to the fairly well developed technology used for chemical vapour deposition) by electrochemical oxidation of acetylene and acetylides.
Writing for professionals, the authors cover theoretical studies on acetylenic scaffolds, synthesis of heterocycles and carbocycles by electrophilic cyclization of alkynes, addition of terminal acetylides to CO and CN electrophiles, transition metal acetylides, acetylenosaccharides, semiconducting poly(arylene ethylene)s, polyynes via alkylidene carbenes and carbenoids, macrocycles based on phenylacetylene scaffolding, carbon-rich compounds, shape-persistent acetylenic macrocycles for ordered systems, and chiral acetylenic macromolecules.
