- Microsecond X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy Identification of CoI Intermediates in Cobaloxime-Catalyzed Hydrogen Evolution
Dr. Grigory Smolentsev, Bianca Cecconi, Alexander Guda, Dr. Murielle Chavarot-Kerlidou, Prof. Jeroen A. van Bokhoven, Dr. Maarten Nachtegaal and Dr. Vincent Artero

Distinct CoI states are generated under light-driven conditions depending on the structure of two cobaloxime complexes (see figure). Only one is catalytically active for H2 evolution and its structure is determined using quantitative analysis of time-resolved XANES spectra.
- Decipher Photoluminescence Dynamics and Reactivity of the Luminescent Metal–Metal-Bonded Excited State of a Binuclear Gold(I) Phosphine Complex Containing Open Coordination Sites

Formed at an ultrafast rate (0.15 ps) through intersystem crossing, the intrinsically long-lived triplet 35dσ*6pσ state (4.3 μs) of di-gold(I) complex (1) undergoes very rapid substrate binding (∼4.3 ps) in CH3CN and a fast cleavage reaction (∼510 ps) in CH2Cl2, exemplifying the remarkable photophysics and photochemistry of di-gold(I) complexes (see scheme).
- Metal-Induced Thiophene Ring Opening and CC Bond Formation To Produce Unique Hexa-1,3,5-trienediyl-Coupled Non-Innocent Ligand Chelates
Dr. Fabian Ehret, Dr. Martina Bubrin, Dr. Stanislav Záliš, Dr. José Luis Priego, Prof. Dr. Reyes Jiménez-Aparicio and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kaim

Open the ring! Thiophene ring-opening followed by CC coupling gave dinuclear compounds with the new non-innocent [R′NNC(R)S] chelate units coupled by a 1,3,5-hexatrienyl bridge (see figure). Reduction of the diruthenium(III) species gave a RuIII/RuII mixed-valent intermediate with near-infrared absorption and a 1.45 nm intramolecular metal-metal distance.
- Catalytic Asymmetric Construction of α-Quaternary Cyclopentanones and Its Application to the Syntheses of (−)-1,14-Herbertenediol and (−)-Aphanorphine
Dao-Yong Zhu, Ming-Hui Xu, Prof. Dr. Yong-Qiang Tu, Prof. Dr. Fu-Min Zhang and Prof. Dr. Shao-Hua Wang
Article first published online: 4 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502700
Herbertene rides again: A novel and efficient strategy to build α-quaternary cyclopentanones with high yields and excellent enantioselectivities (up to 96 % ee) has been developed. Its application is demonstrated by the first catalytic asymmetric total synthesis of (−)-1,14-herbertenediol and the formal synthesis of (−)-aphanorphine.
- A Dual-Response Fluorescent Probe Reveals the H2O2-Induced H2S Biogenesis through a Cystathionine β-Synthase Pathway
Prof. Dr. Long Yi, Lv Wei, Runyu Wang, Changyu Zhang, Jie Zhang, Prof. Dr. Tianwei Tan and Prof. Dr. Zhen Xi
Article first published online: 4 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502832
CBS is responsible: A fluorescent probe with two heads for H2O2 and H2S reveals that both exogenous and endogenous H2O2 molecules can induce endogenous H2S biogenesis on a cystathionine β-synthase (CBS) pathway (see scheme).
