  1. Direct Metal-Free Entry to Aminocyclobutenes or Aminocyclobutenols from Ynamides: Synthetic Applications

    Prof. Dr. Benito Alcaide, Prof. Dr. Pedro Almendros and Carlos Lázaro-Milla

    Version of Record online: 27 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601044

    Bis(triflyl)aminocyclobutenes, 2-amino-3-(triflyl)cyclobut-2-enols, or aminocyclobutenyl ethers from ynamides are prepared by a regioselective [2+2] cycloaddition or a cyclization/hydroxylation (hydroalkoxylation) sequence. These functionalized aminocyclobutenes are coverted into α-amino-β,γ-unsaturated ketones or 3-(triflyl)buta-1,3-dien-2-amines through 4 π-electrocyclic ring-opening reactions.

  2. Aniline-Promoted Cyclization–Replacement Cascade Reactions of 2-Hydroxycinnamaldehydes with Various Carbonic Nucleophiles through In Situ Formed N,O-Acetals

    Chenguang Yu, He Huang, Xiangmin Li, Prof. Dr. Yueteng Zhang, Hao Li and Prof. Dr. Wei Wang

    Version of Record online: 27 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601112

    Cascade catalysis: New reactivity of N,O-acetals has been harnessed in an aminocatalytic cascade fashion for the efficient synthesis of 2-substituted 2H-chromenes.

  3. Manganese-Mediated C−H Alkylation of Unbiased Arenes Using Alkylboronic Acids

    Dr. Susana Castro, Juan J. Fernández, Prof. Dr. Francisco J. Fañanás, Dr. Rubén Vicente and Prof. Félix Rodríguez

    Version of Record online: 27 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601482

    The alkylation of simple arenes, usually performed by the traditional Friedel–Crafts reaction, may also be achieved by an alternative and competitive method involving alkylboronic acids as alkylating reagents and a manganese(III) salt as promoter (see scheme).

  4. The Origin of Anti-Markovnikov Regioselectivity in Alkene Hydroamination Reactions Catalyzed by [Rh(DPEphos)]+

    Almudena Couce-Rios, Prof. Dr. Agustí Lledós and Dr. Gregori Ujaque

    Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201504645

    Crossing paths: The reaction mechanism for intermolecular hydroamination of alkenes catalyzed by [Rh(DPEphos)]+ complex was analyzed by means of DFT calculations (see scheme). Hydroamination (alkene vs. amine activation routes) as well as oxidative amination pathways were analyzed.

  5. Supramolecular Gels by Design: Towards the Development of Topical Gels for Self-Delivery Application

    Rumana Parveen and Prof. Dr. Parthasarathi Dastidar

    Version of Record online: 25 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201600105

    Anti-inflammatory gel: A supramolecular synthon approach has been adopted to generate a series of simple organic salts of ibuprofen. These are capable of forming topical gels, which proved to be useful both in vitro and in vivo to treat skin inflammation.
