  1. Nanocasting Design and Spatially Selective Sulfonation of Polystyrene-Based Polymer Networks as Solid Acid Catalysts

    Dr. Felix H. Richter, Laila Sahraoui and Prof. Dr. Ferdi Schüth

    Version of Record online: 26 AUG 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201603069

    Casting director: The nanocasting of polystyrene-based polymer networks is investigated, highlighting significant restructuring processes that can occur during removal of the template, post-synthesis heat treatment, or solvent immersion. Analysis of the nanocast polymers sulfonated in the liquid phases suggests that spatially selective sulfonation of the polymer is possible, allowing a rational catalyst design for the conversion of inulin.

  2. Chemoenzymatic Total Synthesis of (+)-Galanthamine and (+)-Narwedine from Phenethyl Acetate

    Dr. Mary A. A. Endoma-Arias and Prof. Dr. Tomas Hudlicky

    Version of Record online: 26 AUG 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201603735

    Enzymatic dihydroxylation: The toluene dioxygenase mediated dihydroxylation of phenethyl acetate served to introduce chirality and absolute stereochemistry. An intramolecular Heck cyclization was used to form the quaternary carbon and the dibenzofuran functionality. The synthesis of (+)-galanthamine was completed in a total of ten steps and an overall yield of 5.5 %.

    SuFEx Click: New Materials from SOxF and Silyl Ethers

    Jeremy Yatvin, Karson Brooks and Prof. Jason Locklin

    Version of Record online: 25 AUG 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201602926

    Sulfur(VI) fluoride exchange (SuFEx) is a newly discovered click reaction between molecules containing SOxF groups and silyl ethers that generates sulfate and sulfonate connections upon the addition of certain organobases or fluoride sources. We focus on the unique reactivity of SuFEx and its relation to building high molecular weight polymers and surface coatings, both of which make it a powerful new tool for materials science (see scheme).
