    Some novel Schiff base complexes incorporating Z-3-((2-((E)-(2-Hydroxynaphthyl)methylene)-amino)-5-nitro-phenylimino)-1,3-dihydro-indin-2-one (HL) ligand were synthesized and structurally characterized using different physicochemical tools. Moreover, the optimized geometry parameters of the investigated complexes were evaluated using LANL2DZ basis set and the total energy of HOMO and LUMO, Mullikan atomic charges, dipole moment and orientation have been performed and discussed. Furthermore, the investigated complexes have been tested for their antibacterial, antifungal activity and their DNA interaction.

  2. Resin-supported palladium nanoparticles as recyclable catalyst for the hydrodechlorination of chloroarenes and polychlorinated biphenyls

    Version of Record online: 28 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3552

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Hydrodechlorination of chlorinated arenes as well as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) is carried out by a resin supported Pd(0) catalyst. Recyclable heterogeneous catalysis with an aid of in-situ hydrogen generation yielded excellent results for a wide range of chlorinated compounds and PCB congeners.

    A general and efficient synthesis of trifluoromethyl-substituted 5-alkylidene-1,3-dioxolanes using AgNO3 and DBU cooperatively catalyzed domino reaction of propargylic alcohols and trifluoromethyl ketones is described. The reaction tolerates a broad range of functional groups, and the desired products are obtained in good to excellent yields (62–99%) with acceptable diastereoselectivities.

    A set of cobalt-based metal coordination polymers containing phenylsulfonate and 4,4-bipyridine ligands were obtained under hydrothermal conditions. They show high catalytic performance for the green synthesis of a variety of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2(1H)-ones under solvent-free conditions through Biginelli reactions.
