  1. Polymer-anchored copper(II) complex: an efficient reusable catalyst for the synthesis of propargylamines

    Balaswamy Kodicherla, Pullaiah C. Perumgani and Mohan Rao Mandapati

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3193

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A new polymer-anchored copper(II) N,N-dimethylethylenediamine complex was prepared. The catalytic behaviour of the complex was evaluated using the A3 coupling reaction of aldehydes, amines and alkynes with a view to the synthesis of propargylamines. The effect of solvent and catalyst loading on the A3 coupling reaction was also investigated.

    The aryl allylation of methyl- or (n-butyl)(aryl)zinc reagents in THF at room temperature in the presence of NiCl2(Ph3P)2 catalyst and LiCl as an additive provides an atom-economic alternative to coupling of diarylzincs (α:γ ratio = 80:20 to 60:40).

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3186

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Pd(II) complexes bearing di- and monochelate fluorinated β-ketonaphthyliminato ligand were synthesized and employed to highly efficiently catalyze the vinyl-addition polymerization of norbornene with activity of 3.4 × 106 gpolymer molPd−1 h−1. They also show high catalytic activity towards copolymerization of norbornene and an ester-functionalized norbornene derivative (NB-COOCH3), the amount of which incorporated into the copolymer can be tuned from 2.8 to 21 mol% by controlling the NB-COOCH3 content in the feed.

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3190

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    3-Chlorobenzaldehyde hydralazine hydrazone and its transition metal complexes were investigated for their antimicrobial activity against two Gram-positive and three Gram-negative bacterial strains and three fungal strains. Excellent inhibitory activity is exhibited against Gram-positive bacteria E. faecalis and S. mutans, which play a major role in tooth decay, and the fungal strain C. albicans.
