- Room-Temperature Decarboxylative Couplings of α-Oxocarboxylates with Aryl Halides by Merging Photoredox with Palladium Catalysis
Wan-Min Cheng, Dr. Rui Shang, Dr. Hai-Zhu Yu and Prof. Dr. Yao Fu
Article first published online: 31 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502286
Like a mergin’: Enabled by merging iridium photoredox catalysis and palladium catalysis, palladium-catalyzed decarboxylative coupling of α-oxocarboxylates with aryl halides can proceed at room temperature. DFT calculations suggest that a Pd0–PdII–PdIII catalytic cycle is merged with an IrIII–*IrIII–IrII photoredox cycle, in which PdIII is responsible for oxidizing IrII to complete the photoredox cycle.
- Intramolecular Formal anti-Carbopalladation/Heck Reaction: Facile Domino Access to Carbo- and Heterooligocyclic Dienes
Martin Pawliczek, Bastian Milde, Prof. Dr. Peter G. Jones and Prof. Dr. Daniel B. Werz
Article first published online: 31 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502327
Not only syn, but also anti: A domino sequence consisting of an anti-carbopalladation of an alkyne followed by a Heck reaction enables a fast and efficient access to complex oligocyclic scaffolds (see scheme).
- Formal Asymmetric (4+1) Annulation Reaction between Sulfur Ylides and 1,3-Dienes
Olivier Rousseau, Dr. Thierry Delaunay, Dr. Geoffroy Dequirez, Tran Trieu-Van, Dr. Koen Robeyns and Prof. Raphaël Robiette
Article first published online: 31 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502579
2 plus 1 makes 5? A direct access to cyclopentenes has been achieved through the reaction of 1,3-dienes and sulfur ylides under mild conditions. The one-pot procedure involves a cyclopropanation followed by a magnesium iodide mediated vinylcyclopropane–cyclopentene rearrangement (see scheme).
- Synthesis of Silaphenalenes by Ruthenium-Catalyzed Annulation between 1-Naphthylsilanes and Internal Alkynes through CH Bond Cleavage
Dr. Yuichiro Tokoro, Kengo Sugita and Prof. Dr. Shin-ichi Fukuzawa
Article first published online: 31 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502746
Annulation rather than hydrosilylation: A ruthenium catalyst favored annulation products rather than hydrosilylation products in the reaction of 1-naphthylsilanes and alkynes. The annulation proceeded with selective cleavage of the CH bond at the 8-position of naphthalene. Substrate scope revealed that substituents on the silicon atom played a crucial role and the phenyl group helped to increase the yields.
- Designing Molecular Printboards: A Photolithographic Platform for Recodable Surfaces
Doris Abt, Dr. Bernhard V. K. J. Schmidt, Dr. Ognen Pop-Georgievski, Alexander S. Quick, Dr. Denis Danilov, Nina Yu. Kostina, Dr. Michael Bruns, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Wenzel, Prof. Dr. Martin Wegener, Dr. Cesar Rodriguez-Emmenegger and Prof. Dr. Christopher Barner-Kowollik
Article first published online: 31 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501707
Shining light on the printboard: Photolithography of β-cyclodextrin host modules established on a polydopamine anchor layer was carried out to allow encoding, erasing, and recoding of supramolecular guest patterns on surfaces in a spatially resolved fashion.
