Substrate pre-organization remains the paradigm for bio-inspired catalytic strategies using supramolecular capsule systems. The scarcity of capsule-catalyzed annulation reactions (A+B→C) highlights the limitation of this approach—while co-encapsulation can give significant acceleration, product inhibition frequently halts turnover. In this talk, two novel and distinct methods for realizing capsule-catalyzed annulation processes will be described, both involving the ...

ABSTRACT: The seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings is a difficult task due to the complexity of reliable models, particularly in the case of older non-engineered ones. The qualitative approach is a essential element of knowledge for the interpretation of the seismic behaviour but cannot replace a quantitative security check. As-built information, based on historical ... Read more about "Open issues on seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings: linear vs nonlinear, static vs dynamic, local vs global approaches"
