    Nano copper oxide supported on silica was synthesized and used as a heterogeneous efficient catalyst for the C–N cross-coupling reaction of various amines contain aryl, alkyl, and N-heterocyclic amines with different aryl halides even aryl chlorides in good yields and short reaction times. This catalytic system can be recycled at least five times without a decrease in its activity.

  2. The application of tunable tridendate P-based ligands for the Ru(II)-catalysed transfer hydrogenation of various ketones

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3202

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Two novel versatile tridendate AMPP and phosphinite ligands were synthesized and their trinuclear neutral ruthenium(II) complexes were found to be effective catalysts for the transfer hydrogenation of various ketones in excellent conversions up to 99% in 0.1 M isopropanol solution. Especially, [Ru3(Ph2POC2H4)2NPPh26-p-cymene)3Cl6] acts as an excellent catalyst giving the corresponding alcohols in conversions up to 99% (TOF ≤ 1176 h−1).

  3. Cu-catalyzed coupling of arylsulfinic salts with arylsilanes under mild conditions

    Xiaomin Yang, Yanyan Cao, Enbo Li, Pengmei Zhang and Zhanzhong Hou

    Article first published online: 14 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3199

    Arylsilanes were efficiently coupled with arylsulfinic salts for the first time under mild conditions. Diarylsulfone derivatives were easily synthesized in high yields with the assistance of nitrogen-containing ligands and KF. The transformation is simple and efficient and the starting materials are readily available.
