    Cu, Pd, and cycles: A palladium- and copper-catalyzed divergent synthesis of dihydro[1,2-b]indenoindole-9-ol and benzofuro[3,2-b]indolines has been developed. Notably, the same precursor is employed for the synthesis of both heterocyclic scaffolds and the selectivity of the product is controlled by switching the choice of metal.

  4. Designing the Molybdopterin Core through Regioselective Coupling of Building Blocks

    Dr. Igor V. Pimkov, Dr. Barbara Serli-Mitasev, Antoinette A. Peterson, Stephen C. Ratvasky, Dr. Bernd Hammann and Prof. Partha Basu

    Article first published online: 7 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502845

    It’s time for a molybdopterin core! The design and syntheses of several dithiolene-functionalized pyran derivatives are described. Our approach allows preparation of compounds with the desired functionality. The synthesized compounds have been characterized, and their physical properties provide an avenue for comparison with the native cofactor.

  5. Palladium-Catalyzed Arylation of Unactivated γ-Methylene C(sp3)[BOND]H and δ-C[BOND]H Bonds with an Oxazoline-Carboxylate Auxiliary

    Peng-Xiang Ling, Sheng-Long Fang, Xue-Song Yin, Kai Chen, Bo-Zheng Sun and Prof. Dr. Bing-Feng Shi

    Article first published online: 7 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502621

    Active construction: A palladium-catalyzed arylation of unactivated γ-methylene C(sp3)[BOND]H and remote δ-C[BOND]H bonds is accomplished by using an oxazoline-carboxylate directing group (see scheme). Arylation occurs with a broad substrate scope and high tolerance of functional groups (i.e., halogen, nitro, cyano, ether, trifluoromethyl, amine, and ester). The oxazoline-type auxiliary can be removed under acidic conditions.
