An efficient reduction of α-amino ketones with potassium borohydride solution catalyzed by chiral N,N′-dioxide–metal complex catalysts was accomplished under mild reaction conditions for the first time. It provided a simple, convenient, and practical approach for obtaining synthetically important chiral β-amino alcohols in good to excellent yields and enantioselectivities (see scheme).

Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404538
A general catalytic method for the direct cyclic imide synthesis from dicarboxylic acids with amines or NH3 under mild conditions using a reusable Nb2O5 catalyst is reported (see scheme). The method is effective for the synthesis of some pharmaceutically or industrially important cyclic imides, including N-hydroxyphthalimide and unsubstituted cyclic imides.
- Rhodium(III)-Catalyzed N-Nitroso-Directed CH Addition to Ethyl 2-Oxoacetate for Cycloaddition/Fragmentation Synthesis of Indazoles
Dr. Jinsen Chen, Pei Chen, Chao Song and Prof. Dr. Jin Zhu
Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404506
Go cyclo! Herein RhIII-catalyzed N-nitroso-directed CH addition to ethyl 2-oxoacetate for the formal [2+2] cycloaddition/fragmentation synthesis of indazoles is reported (see scheme; Cp*=1,2,3,4,5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl). The unique reactivity pattern identified herein emphasizes the importance of forward reactivity analysis in the development of useful CH functionalization-based synthetic tools.
- Photoresponsive DNA Nanocapsule Having an Open/Close System for Capture and Release of Nanomaterials

An open and shut case: A square bipyramidal DNA nanocapsule (NC) was designed to create a nanomaterial carrier. A photocontrollable open/close system and toehold system were introduced into the NC for capture and release of a gold nanoparticle (AuNP) by photoirradiation and strand displacement. The encapsulation and release of the AuNP was successfully carried out by opening of the NC and strand displacement.
