7-OH quinoline Schiff bases: are they the long awaited tautomeric bistable switches?

Two novel, 7-hydroxyquinoline based, Schiff bases have been synthesized and their spectral properties have been investigated by combined use of optical and NMR spectroscopy and theoretical DFT calculations. The results indicate that 8-((phenylimino)methyl)quinolin-7-ol exists as a mixture of enol and two keto tautomers in solution, while 8-(((pentarfluorophenyl)imino)methyl)quinolin-7-ol is presented as a single enol form. Upon […]

Subcritical Extracts from Major Species of Oil-Bearing Roses – A Comparative Chemical Profiling

A comprehensive chemical profiling of 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (freon R134a) subcritical extracts from the main genotypes of oil-bearing roses, was performed by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (GC-FID) in order to reveal the differences in their chemical composition. One hundred and three individual compounds were identified using GC/MS and their quantitative […]
