  1. Structural Transformation and Hysteretic Sorption of Light Hydrocarbons in a Flexible Zn–Pyrazole–Adenine Framework

    Hong-Ru Fu and Prof. Dr. Jian Zhang

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406323

    Breathtaking: A flexible metal–organic framework based on the pyrazole–adenine module exhibits a breathing effect on the sorption of light hydrocarbons. The flexibility of the framework is demonstrated by single-crystal structural studies at different temperatures.

  2. Asymmetric Suzuki–Miyaura Cross-Coupling for the Synthesis of Chiral Biaryl Compounds as Potential Monophosphine Ligands

    Yan-Na Ma and Prof. Shang-Dong Yang

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406554

    To bear a cross: Efficient asymmetric Suzuki–Miyaura coupling reactions are employed to synthesize chiral biaryl compounds with phosphinate groups as chiral auxiliaries. A series of functionalized chiral biaryls are synthesized in excellent yields and good diastereoselectivities (up to >95:5 d.r.) and axially chiral monophosphorus ligands are obtained through further functionalizations.

  3. Control over Excited State Intramolecular Proton Transfer and Photoinduced Tautomerization: Influence of the Hydrogen-Bond Geometry

    Giovanny A. Parada, Dr. Todd F. Markle, Dr. Starla D. Glover, Prof. Dr. Leif Hammarström, Dr. Sascha Ott and Dr. Burkhard Zietz

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500244

    H-bond geometry rules! Correlations between H-bond structural parameters and the dynamics of ESIPT and photoinduced tautomerization have been investigated in a series of H-bonded phenols (see figure).

  4. (E)-,(Z)-Parallel Preparative Methods for Stereodefined β,β-Diaryl- and α,β-Diaryl-α,β-unsaturated Esters: Application to the Stereocomplementary Concise Synthesis of Zimelidine

    Yuichiro Ashida, Yuka Sato, Takeyuki Suzuki, Kanako Ueno, Ken-ichiro Kai, Dr. Hidefumi Nakatsuji and Prof. Dr. Yoo Tanabe

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405150

    Working together: Parallel synthetic methods for (E)- and (Z)-β-Ar1-β-Ar2-α,β-unsaturated esters 1 and (E)- and (Z)-α-Ar1-β-Ar2-α,β-unsaturated esters 2 (see scheme), involving accessible stereocomplementary N-methylimidazole (NMI)-mediated enol tosylations and stereoretentive Suzuki–Miyaura cross-couplings, are presented. Application to an expeditious parallel synthesis of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (E)-, (Z)-zimelidine is presented.

  5. MH4P6N12 (M=Mg, Ca): New Imidonitridophosphates with an Unprecedented Layered Network Structure Type

    Alexey Marchuk, Vinicius R. Celinski, Prof. Dr. Jörn Schmedt auf der Günne and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schnick

    Article first published online: 27 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406240

    Unprecedented layered structure: New imidonitridophosphates MH4P6N12 (M=Mg, Ca) have been synthesized by high-pressure/high-temperature reactions at 8 GPa and 1000 °C. Their crystal structures have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses and confirmed by Rietveld refinement, which reveal an unprecedented layered structure type (see graphic). The hydrogen contents of the samples have been quantified by solid-state NMR spectroscopy.
