Abstract

original image

Get cooking with catalysis! The cover picture shows a ligand-controlled chemoselective oxidative coupling reaction. Described is the addition of different amounts of the acacH ligand (illustrated as a “spice” from the spoon) to produce the mono- and diarylated oxidative coupling products in a “pan”. In their Communication on p. 121 ff., S. Harada, H. Yano, and Y. Obora describe a facile approach to cinnamamides catalyzed by a Pd/acacH/O2 system.
