  1. Boron Lewis Acid-Catalyzed Hydroboration of Alkenes with Pinacolborane: BArF3 Does What B(C6F5)3 Cannot Do!

    Qin Yin, Sebastian Kemper, Hendrik Klare and Martin Oestreich

    More effective: Mononuclear LnL3 complexes prepared from a tridentate phenanthroline-tetrazolate ligand (HL) exhibit field-induced single-molecule magnet (SMM) behavior with very low thermal energy barriers. Replacement of one tridentate ligand L by a β-diketonate ligand induces a significant increase in the effective energy barrier for the reversal of the magnetization Ueff, and thus these complexes behave as SMMs in zero field.

  3. Iridium(I) Compounds as Prospective Anticancer Agents: Solution Chemistry, Antiproliferative Profiles and Protein Interactions for a Series of Iridium(I) N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes

    Dr. Yvonne Gothe, Dr. Tiziano Marzo, Prof. Dr. Luigi Messori and Prof. Dr. Nils Metzler-Nolte

    Version of Record online: 22 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601542

    Iridium—a new player in the game: Iridium compounds in the oxidation state +I with NHC ligands show excellent antiproliferative activity against several cell lines (see figure). Mass spectrometry studies demonstrate that cellular proteins are likely targets of this new class of prospective anticancer agents.

  4. Chiral Heteroditopic Baskets Designed from Triazolated Calixarenes and Short Peptides

    Turn ditopic! Sophisticated chiral heteroditopic hosts capable of interactions with a pair of cations may be easily prepared through CuI-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition reactions from narrow-rim propargylated calixarenes and azido-peptides. The hosts created demonstrate a direction-independent binuclear complexation, cation substitution/switching, or ordered binuclear complexation when interacting with Cu2+ and Pb2+ ions (see figure).

  5. A Mechanistic Investigation of the Visible-Light Photocatalytic Trifluoromethylation of Heterocycles Using CF3I in Flow

    Dr. Yuanhai Su, Koen P. L. Kuijpers, Niels König, Minjing Shang, Prof. Dr. Volker Hessel and Dr. Timothy Noël

    Version of Record online: 22 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201602596

    Precision and safety in flow: The mechanism for the visible-light-induced photocatalytic trifluoromethylation of N-methylpyrrole with CF3I has been elucidated. The use of continuous-flow microreactor technology allowed for the determination of different important parameters with high precision as well as the handling of CF3I in a straightforward manner.
