- Ligandless C-C bond formation via Suzuki–Miyaura reaction in micelles or water–ethanol solution using PdPtZn and PdZn nanoparticle thin films
S. Jafar Hoseini, Atiyeh Zarei and Hajar Rafatbakhsh Iran
Article first published online: 26 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3318
PdPtZn and PdZn nanoparticle thin films were synthesized by the reduction of [PdCl2(cod)], [PtCl2(cod)] and [Zn(acac)2] complexes at an oil–water interface. Catalytic activity of the nanoparticles was investigated in Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions in various micellar systems or water–ethanol solution.
- Incorporation of azo group at axial position of silatranes: synthesis, characterization and antimicrobial activity

Article first published online: 25 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3330
4-Aminoazobenzene-derived silatranes have been synthesized bearing urea and aminosuccinimide as linker groups at axial position of the silatrane by rearrangement and aza-Michael addition reactions. X-ray diffraction analysis has been done for two of the compounds. UV–visible spectroscopy has proved that the silatranes are capable acetate receptors. The synthesized compounds have been screened for possible antimicrobial properties.
- Alcoholic solvent-assisted ligand-free room temperature Suzuki–Miyauracross-coupling reaction
Gayatri Sarmah, Manoj Mondal and Utpal Bora
Article first published online: 25 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3320
Cross-Coupling in Alcohol: Effect of alcoholic solvent in ligand-free Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of aryl bromides with arylboronic acids has been studied (see scheme). Under aerobic reaction condition the coupling proceeds efficiently and provides excellent yield of products. The true catalyst, as determined by the Hg(0) poisoning test, was found to be the in situ generated Pd(0) species.
- Zinc polyoxometalate on activated carbon: an efficient catalyst for selective oxidation of alcohols with hydrogen peroxide
Elham Assady, Bahram Yadollahi, Mostafa Riahi Farsani and Majid Moghadam
Article first published online: 25 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3332
Effective oxidation of various alcohols with hydrogen peroxide was performed in the presence of [PW11ZnO39]5− on activated carbon (AC) as a cheap, effective and recyclable catalyst. The PW11Zn@AC catalyst could be reused for at least five runs with consistent activity and selectivity.
- D-Glucosamine in iron-catalysed cross-coupling reactions of Grignards with allylic and vinylic bromides: application to the synthesis of a key sitagliptin precursor
Matej Sova, Rok Frlan, Stanislav Gobec, Gaj Stavber and Zdenko Časar
Article first published online: 22 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3327
The Fe(acac)2/D-glucosamine⋅HCl/Et3N catalytic system is shown to be effective at 5 mol% loading in the iron-catalysed CC cross-coupling reactions of phenylmagnesium or benzylmagnesium bromides with various allyl and alkenyl bromides. The methodology presented was also successfully applied for the novel and economical preparation of a Michael-acceptor-like starting material used in the alternative synthesis of sitagliptin.
