Recently Published Articles

  1. Recent developments in cyclodextrin-mediated aqueous biphasic hydroformylation and tsuji–trost reactions

    Frédéric Hapiot, Stéphane Menuel, Hervé Bricout, Sébastien Tilloy and Eric Monflier

    Article first published online: 5 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3340

    New cyclodextrin (CD)-based systems have recently been developed for aqueous organometallic catalysis. Their catalytic performances are highlighted in two model reactions, namely the Rh-catalysed hydroformylation of terminal olefins and the Pd-catalysed cleavage of allyl carbonates (Tsuji–Trost reaction).

  2. A protophilic solvent-assisted solvothermal approach to Cu-BTC for enhanced CO2 capture

    Fujiao Song, Qin Zhong and Yunxia Zhao

    Article first published online: 5 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3339

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Cu-BTC–ethylenediamine (EDA)/polyethyleneimine (PEI) adsorbents, for CO2 capture, were synthesized using a protophilic solvent-assisted solvothermal method. 1H NMR and elemental analyses confirmed an improved degree of activation. Nitrogen physical adsorption indicated an enhanced surface area. Both of these promoted the CO2 adsorption performance.

  3. Assembly of homoallylamine derivatives through iron-catalyzed three-component sulfonamidoallylation reaction

    Xiaohui Fan, Hong-Bo Zhu, Hao Lv, Kun Guo, Yong-Hong Guan, Xiao-Meng Cui, Bin An and Yan-Ling Pu

    Article first published online: 5 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3334

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A practical three-component cascade process to homoallylamine derivatives is reported, which uses cheap and environmentally benign FeCl3 as catalyst and shows excellent syn stereoselectivity with γ-substituted allylsilanes.

  4. Oxygen-chelated indenylidene ruthenium catalysts for olefin metathesis

    Yu Xie, Ye Yuan, Bibimaryam Mousavi, Yuan Cai, Cheng Kai, Yin Lu, Mehman Yusubov and Francis Verpoort

    Article first published online: 24 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3338

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    This mini-review gives an overview of ruthenium catalysts bearing oxygen-chelated indenylidene ligands, which show certain latency in stability and catalytic performance for more sterically demanding substrates.

  5. Graphene oxide/poly(vinyl imidazole) nanocomposite: an effective support for preparation of highly loaded heterogeneous copper catalyst

    Ali Pourjavadi, Niloofar Safaie, Seyed Hassan Hosseini and Craig Bennett

    Article first published online: 15 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3336

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A heterogeneous polymeric catalyst was synthesized by immobilization of copper ions in a graphene oxide (GO)/poly(vinyl imidazole) nanocomposite. The catalyst is proven to be highly active in a practical protocol for click synthesis of 1,2,3-triazole via one-pot three-component cycloaddition of halides, terminal alkynes and sodium azide. The reaction was carried out in water medium and good to excellent yields of products were obtained using only 1.0 mol% of catalyst.
