    Abstract: Phosphine-assisted annulation of 2,5-diarylfuran-3,4-dicarbaldehydes with maleimides provided the title isobenzofurans in satisfactory yields. An effect of the substituents at the para position of the aryl groups in these isobenzofurans was demonstrated clearly by a red shift in their UV-vis absorption and emission spectra. They were transformed in... Show More

    Abstract: Radial basis networks (RBN) were applied to link molecular descriptor and boiling points of 168 hydroxyl compounds. The total database was randomly divided into a training set(134), a validation set(17) and a testing set(17). Each compound in the lowest energy conformation was numerically characterized with E-dragon software. Then 8 molecular descr... Show More
