Faulting, shallow seismicity and seismic hazard analysis for the Costa Rican Central Valley
A seismic hazard map for the Metropolitan Area of San Jose has been elaborated, based on local tectonic and seismic information. The area for the hazard computation covers an area of 20 x 15 km2 and includes the zone where ...
Efficient syntheses of streptocarpone and (±)-a-dunnione
An efficient divergent synthesis of both streptocarpone and racemic α-dunnione from lawsone are described. A one-pot, formal [3+2] cyclization to form a furanonaphthoquinone directly provided a common intermediate.
