      Cover Picture: Hydrogenation of Carbon Dioxide to Formate Catalyzed by a Copper/1,8-Diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene System (Adv. Synth. Catal. 7/2015) (page 1321)

      The front cover picture. Hydrogenation of carbon dioxide to formate was achieved by molecular copper catalysts for the first time. In the cover picture, the gate made of copper is opened by a DBU molecule, inviting carbon dioxide and molecular hydrogen into the gate. It implies that the combination of copper and DBU is crucial for the hydrogenation. The contribution of DBU is a key in the reaction, because DBU serves a dual role as a base and a ligand bound to copper species. Details can be found in the communication on pages 1369–1373 (R. Watari, Y. Kayaki, S.-i. Hirano, N. Matsumoto, T. Ikariya, Adv. Synth. Catal. 2015, 357, 1369–1373; DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201500043).

      Inside Cover: Direct Coupling of Arylacetonitriles and Primary Alcohols to α-Alkylated Arylacetamides with Complete Atom Economy Catalyzed by a Rhodium Complex–Triphenylphosphine– Potassium Hydroxide System (Adv. Synth. Catal. 7/2015) (page 1322)

      The inside cover picture, provided by Feng Li and co-workers, illustrates the direct synthesis of α-alkylated arylacetamides from arylacetonitriles and primary alcohols. In the presence of a rhodium complex [Rh(cod)Cl]2/triphenylphosphine/potassium hydroxide system, the desired α-alkylated arylacetamides were obtained in 74–92% yield under microwave conditions. The experimental results in this paper are in sharp contrast with previous reports, where the coupling of arylacetonitriles and primary alcohols produced the α-alkylated arylacetonitriles. Notably, this research shows the potential of developing completely atom-economical reactions that involve the hydrogen autotransfer (or hydrogen borrowing) process. Details can be found in the full paper on pages 1405–1415 (F. Li, X. Zou, N. Wang, Adv. Synth. Catal. 2015, 357, 1405–1415; DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201401013).
