  1. Design, syntheses and photochromic properties of dithienylcyclopentene optical molecular switches

    Chuanming Yu, Bingcheng Hu, Cheng Liu and Jiting Li

    Version of Record online: 20 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/poc.3584

    Two kinds of dithenycyclopentenes based on porphyrins were synthesized, and showed favorable photochromic properties and high fatigue resistance. A nondestructive readout method by luminescence tuning was demonstrated in details.

  2. Cyclopropenimine as pincer ligand and strong electron donor in proton sponges

    Version of Record online: 19 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/poc.3579

    Cyclopropenimines are more basic than the corresponding phosphazenes in the gas phase. Proton sponges based on cyclopropenimines as pincer ligands also possess higher or at least the same gas-phase proton affinity/basicity as proton sponges based on phosphazenes. Recently, estimated theoretical gas-phase basicity limit of 370 kcal mol−1 could be exceeded utilizing cyclopropenimines as substituents in phosphorus carbenes and phosphorus ylides.

  3. Synthesis, crystal structure and dielectric properties of C6H18N2SbCl5

    Houda Kharrat, Nizar Elfaleh and Slaheddine Kamoun

    Version of Record online: 19 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/poc.3577

    Preparation and crystal structure of a new C6H18N2SbCl5 compound were reported. Thermal analysis and dielectric measurements of C6H18N2SbCl5 were studied. Dielectric dispersion obeys the well-known Universal Power Law (Jonscher's power law). AC conductivity study shows that the material exhibits two conduction mechanisms.

  4. Nanoenvironmental effect in AOT reverse micelles on the triplet excited state properties of flavins and quenching by molecular oxygen

    Lorena Valle, Faustino E. Morán Vieyra and Claudio D. Borsarelli

    Version of Record online: 19 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/poc.3575

    Quenching of triplet excited states of flavins 3F* and singlet oxygen production is governed by nano-environment of the interior of AOT reverse micelles.

  5. Cycloaddition of CS2 to N-benzylaziridine to synthesize N-benzylthiazolidine-2-thione: a novel reaction route proposed by DFT Study

    Amritpal Singh and Neetu Goel

    Version of Record online: 13 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/poc.3578

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    The step by step reaction pathway presents the details of the proposed novel route to pharmaceutically important N-benzylthiazolidine-2-thione through coupling of CS2 with N-benzylaziridine using DFT formalism. Keeping in view the impediments of the limited synthetic route to N-benzylthiazolidine-2-thione, theoretical prediction of synthesizing N-benzylthiazolidine-2-thione through cycloaddition of CS2 with N-benzylaziridine would encourage synthetic chemists to follow the proposed route to an important intermediate in various reactions of pharmaceutical importance.
