Novel, cost-efficient bulk modified thiol-acrylate microfluidic materials with wide range of highly stable hydrophilic surfaces (11° to 85°) prepared without expensive and sophisticated techniques within less than 24 h at room temperature and ambient pressure.
Hydroformylation is one of the highest-volume homogeneously catalyzed industrial processes today. One segment of the market deals with unreactive alkenes that require the most active cobalt or rhodium-based catalysts that need high pressures (> 200 atm) to prevent decomposition of the catalysts. A new class of cationic cobalt bisphosphine hydroformylation catalysts exhibit exceptional activity under medium pressure conditions and remarkable stability with respect to cobalt-induced phosphine degradation reactions or decomposition to cobalt metal.
A multiple case study involving participants of an MRT program who completed a BSc degree but did not subsequently matriculate into a doctoral program. Results identify perceived barriers deterring continuation into doctoral degree programs among former MRT participants.
