      The cover picture shows the very broad application field of new catalytic systems for the N-, O- and C-arylations of various nucleophiles (the background represents crystals of the catalyst Cu2O). These systems, which result from combinations of copper salts with a set of original chelating ligands not previously known to promote such reactions, are unique in terms of versatility. Mildness, low-cost, experimental simplicity, and the ability to work at low catalyst loading are features of this methodology, which make it particularly well suited for industrial-scale syntheses for which financial and environmental issues are of greater concern. Consequently, it should find applications very soon for the synthesis of industrially important synthetic targets, found in a range of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and natural products. For mote details see the article by M. Taillefer, H.-J. Cristau et al. on p. 5607 ff.

      The Burgess reagent (1) is remarkably effective at accomplishing a number of non-dehydrative synthetic tasks when applied to appropriate substrates, such as the formation of sulfamidates from 1,2-diols or epoxyalcohols, α- and β-glycosylamines from carbohydrates, and cyclic sulfamides from 1,2-aminoalcohols. This article delineates the power of these new reaction manifolds and demonstrates how the use of novel Burgess-type reagents extends the scope of these transformations even further.

      Cheap and copper! Ullmann-type N- and C-arylations of various nucleophiles were found to occur with high yields under particularly mild conditions by using inexpensive and air-stable catalytic systems; these systems are composed of a combination of catalytic copper salts with a set of chelating ligands still not known to promote such reactions. The catalyst generated from chelating Schiff base 1 c is unique in terms of versatility. EWG=electron-withdrawing group, EDG=electron-donating group.

    7. An Insight into a Novel Class of Self-Assembled Porphyrins: Geometric Structure, Electronic Structure, One- and Two-Photon Absorption Properties (pages 5623–5631)

      Xin Zhou, Ai-Min Ren and Ji-Kang Feng

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400251

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of butadiyne-linked porphyrin derivatives that exhibit large two-photon absorption (TPA) cross sections in the visible-IR range were investigated theoretically. The dimer with two porphyrins linked at meso-positions by a butadiyne linkage (see picture) exhibits a maximum TPA cross section (79.35×10−48 cm4 s per photon). Porphyrins with the similar structure would be a promising direction for further development of novel TPA materials.

    8. The Control of the Cholesteric Pitch by Some Azo Photochemical Chiral Switches (pages 5632–5639)

      Silvia Pieraccini, Giovanni Gottarelli, Riccardo Labruto, Stefano Masiero, Omar Pandoli and Gian Piero Spada

      Chiral bis(azo) photoswitches that contain a binaphthyl moiety (e.g. 1 and 2) can transform nematic phases into cholesteric phases with reflection bands in the visible region. The reflection colours can be changed reversibly by photoisomerisation of the azo groups.

    9. Cobalt-Catalyzed Cross-Coupling Reactions of Alkyl Halides with Allylic and Benzylic Grignard Reagents and Their Application to Tandem Radical Cyclization/Cross-Coupling Reactions (pages 5640–5648)

      Hirohisa Ohmiya, Takashi Tsuji, Hideki Yorimitsu and Koichiro Oshima

      Version of Record online: 30 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400545

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Superior to reactions with palladium, nickel, or copper catalysts, cobalt-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions between alkyl halides and allylic Grignard reagents allow secondary and tertiary (as well as primary) alkyl halides to be employed as the coupling partners (see scheme). In addition, benzylmagnesium chloride can couple with alkyl halides. The reaction should begin with the generation of alkyl radical from the parent alkyl halide, suggesting a tandem radical cyclization/cross-coupling reaction with [CoCl2(dppp)] catalysis.

    10. Total Synthesis of Salicylihalamides A and B (pages 5649–5660)

      Running rings around enamides: By use of a new enamide synthesis, salicylihalamide 2 was prepared from the macrolactone 1. This macrolactone could either be reached by Mitsunobu macrolactonization or classical ring-closing metathesis.

    11. 2,5-Diphenyl-3,4-bis(2-pyridyl)cyclopenta-2,4-dien-1-one as a Redox-Active Chelating Ligand (pages 5661–5670)

      Ulrich Siemeling, Imke Scheppelmann, Jürgen Heinze, Beate Neumann, Anja Stammler and Hans-Georg Stammler

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400465

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Why always cling to ferrocene and quinone derivatives? The cyclopentadienone 1 has been established as a redox-active ligand in coordination chemistry; it forms a series of N,N chelates. It represents a new and convenient ligand platform for use in redox switches and sensors. Its versatility as a ligand is enhanced by the fact that its binding characteristics can be modulated through coordination of the cyclopentadienone π system to another metal atom.

    12. Electron Delocalization in Linearly π-Conjugated Systems: A Concept for Quantitative Analysis (pages 5671–5680)

      Maria Grazia Giuffreda, Maurizio Bruschi and Hans Peter Lüthi

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400313

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel computational approach based on deletion and on second-order orbital interaction energies in a natural bond orbital (NBO) scheme is presented to quantitatively assess electron delocalization in linearly π-conjugated systems (see figure). This approach was applied to butadiene as an illustration, and more extensively to unsubstituted and substituted tetraethynylethenes (TEEs) with donors and acceptors. By means of this method we were able to understand why certain paths favor conjugation more than others, to quantify the effect of the substituents on the backbone, and to predict how to enhance delocalization.

    13. Rhodium-Catalyzed Intramolecular Hydroacylation of 5- and 6-Alkynals: Convenient Synthesis of α-Alkylidenecycloalkanones and Cycloalkenones (pages 5681–5688)

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400679

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel intramolecular hydroacylation of 5- and 6-alkynals leading to α-alkylidenecycloalkanones (see scheme) was accomplished by using a cationic rhodium(I)/BINAP complex. For all cyclizations described, a single (E)-olefin isomer was obtained. At elevated temperature, hydroacylation and double bond migration of 5- and 6-alkynals proceeded in a one-pot reaction to give cycloalkenones. This method represents an attractive new route to highly functionalized α-alkylidenecycloalkanones and cycloalkenones.

    14. Hydrogen Bonding of Water Confined in Mesoporous Silica MCM-41 and SBA-15 Studied by 1H Solid-State NMR (pages 5689–5696)

      Bob Grünberg, Thomas Emmler, Egbert Gedat, Ilja Shenderovich, Gerhard H. Findenegg, Hans-Heinrich Limbach and Gerd Buntkowsky

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400351

      Waterlogged: The adsorption of water in two mesoporous silica materials with cylindrical pores of uniform diameter, MCM-41 and SBA-15, is studied by solid-state NMR spectroscopy. All observed hydrogen atoms are either surface [BOND]SiOH groups or hydrogen-bonded water molecules. For low-filling degrees, a partial-monolayer coverage of the surface is observed. At higher water contents, a diameter-dependent filling of the pores is observed. In small-diameter MCM-41 pore filling is by pore condensation (axial-pore-filling mode), and in large-diameter SBA-15 layered-pore filling is observed.

    15. RNA Is More UV Resistant than DNA: The Formation of UV-Induced DNA Lesions is Strongly Sequence and Conformation Dependent (pages 5697–5705)

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400293

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Insight into the mechanism of diphosphate ion hydrolysis and synthesis is afforded from the study of gaseous H5P2O8 ions generated from the chemical ionization (CI) of an H4P2O7/H2O mixture and from electrospray ionization (ESI) of CH3CN/H2O/H4P2O7 solutions. These ions were structurally characterized by mass spectrometric and theoretical techniques as a mixture of gaseous [H3P2O7⋅⋅⋅H2O], [H3PO4⋅⋅⋅H2PO4], and [PO3⋅⋅⋅H3PO4⋅⋅⋅ H2O] clusters (see picture).

    17. Regioselectivity in Iron-Catalyzed [2+2+1] Cycloadditions: A DFT Investigation of Substituent Effects in 1,4-Diazabutadienes (pages 5717–5729)

      Wolfgang Imhof and Ernst Anders

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400215

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The π-donor ability of the substituents at the imine carbon atoms to contribute to a delocalized π system incorporating the adjacent imine moiety is the main reason for the observed regioselectivities in the iron-catalyzed [2+2+1] cycloaddition of 1,4-diazabutadienes with different substituents at the imine carbon atoms, carbon monoxide, and ethylene (see scheme).

    18. Oxidation of CS2 by AsBr4+: The Unexpected Formation of the Simple CS2Br3+ Carbenium Ion (pages 5730–5736)

      By serendipity we synthesized the novel CS2Br3+carbenium ion through the 4 e oxidation of CS2 with AsBr4+[Al(OR)4] (R=C(CF3)3) (see scheme). This is the first structure of a carbocation with a C[BOND]S[BOND]X bond (X=halogen). Electronically it is closely related to the CBr3+ ion. CS2Br3+ is best viewed as a planar 10 π cation.

    19. Readily Prepared Metallo-Supramolecular Triple Helicates Designed to Exhibit Spin-Crossover Behaviour (pages 5737–5750)

      Floriana Tuna, Martin R. Lees, Guy J. Clarkson and Michael J. Hannon

      Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400518

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Spin-crossover behaviour is introduced into readily prepared dinuclear metallo-supramolecular triple-helicates by using a bis-imidazolimine ligand system. The imidazole NH groups engage in hydrogen bonding to anions and solvents; in the case of the iron(II) tetrafluoroborate complex this hydrogen bonding links supramolecular cylinders into an extended two-dimensional array as shown here. Consistent with this, a sharp spin-crossover transition is observed for this compound. More subtle anion effects are indicated in the perchlorate salt, which gives a two step spin conversion thereby displaying tristability.

    20. In Search of Ultrastrong Brønsted Neutral Organic Superacids: A DFT Study on Some Cyclopentadiene Derivatives (pages 5751–5760)

      Version of Record online: 14 OCT 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.200400337

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Pentasubstituted cyclopentadienes such as (NC)5C5H, (NO2)5C5H, and (CN)5C5H containing strongly electron-withdrawing groups are neutral organic superacids of unprecedented strength according to the DFT calculations presented here. The origin of the highly pronounced acidity of these compounds was analyzed by using the recently developed triadic formula, which showed that high Koopmans' ionization energies of the conjugate bases (see picture) exerts a decisive influence on acidity. It is fair to say that high acidity is a consequence of the final state effect.

Supported analogues of 2 were prepared by immobilization on a hydroxymethyl-Merrifield resin and a monolithic support derived from ring-opening-metathesis polymerization. Compounds 1 and 2 and the supported versions of 2 showed high reactivity in ring-closing metathesis and ring-opening cross-metathesis.

      Excellent activities and enantioselectivities (up to >98 %) in the hydrogenation of methyl 2-acetamidoacrylate were achieved by using new heterogeneous catalysts that were prepared by noncovalent anchoring of two well-established asymmetric catalysts, [RhI(cod){(R,R)-MeDuPHOS}]BF4 (1) and [RhI(cod){(S,S)-DiPAMP}]BF4 (2), to a new aluminosilicate (AlTUD-1; see scheme). Interestingly, the solvent played an important role in hydrogenations with these catalysts.

      Alkyne to cyclobutadiene transformations: DFT/B3LYP calculations led us to propose two distinct pathways for the formation of η4-cyclobutadiene complexes from metallacycles generated by oxidative coupling of two acetylenes with the fragments CpRuCl, [CpRu(PH3)]+, CpCo, and CpRh. Both a multistep reaction mechanism via a cyclopropenyl carbene and a tetrahedrane-type intermediate, and a direct one-step transformation (depicted for CpCo; values in kcal mol−1) are discussed.
