ChemPlusChem 1/2014: New Features to Delight our Readers

ChemPlusChem 1/2014: New Features to Delight our Readers

In this issue, Petr Cigler, T. Govindaraju, and Radim Beranek are the first authors to feature as part of the new Early Career Series. Also, Petr Cigler was selected to give the inaugural interview, in which he discusses his career and research achievements. Of course the popular Cover Profiles continue, and an article on efficient DNA triplex–forming oligonucleotides by Vyacheslav Filichev and Carlos González is highlighted this month.

Take a look at this issue's hot papers by José López–de–Luzuriaga, Claudia Tomasini, Clair Carmalt, Silvia Cavalli and by our board members Eiji Yashima and Luisa De Cola.

  1. Sustainable Heterogeneous Platinum Catalyst for Direct Methylation of Secondary Amines by Carbon Dioxide and Hydrogen

    Dr. Kenichi Kon, Dr. S. M. A. Hakim Siddiki, Wataru Onodera and Dr. Ken-ichi Shimizu

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201400332

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Over and over: A heterogeneous Pt catalyst for direct methylation of aromatic amines by CO2 and H2 with high reusability and an order of magnitude higher turnover number than previous catalysts has been demonstrated (see scheme).

  2. C[BOND]H Oxygenation and N-Trifluoroacylation of Arylamines Under Metal-Free Conditions: A Convenient Approach to 2-Aminophenols and N-Trifluoroacyl-ortho-aminophenols

    Vunnam Venkateswarlu, K. A. Aravinda Kumar, Shilpi Balgotra, G. Lakshma Reddy, M. Srinivas, Dr. Ram A. Vishwakarma and Dr. Sanghapal D. Sawant

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201402411

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Direct­ ortho-hydroxylation through C[BOND]H oxygenation and N-trifluoroacylation of anilines was achieved in a single step under metal-free conditions by using a combination of TFA and oxone (see figure). The method has a broad substrate scope and allowed the formation of functionalised amino phenolic compounds such as ortho-hydroxy-N-trifluoroacetanilides in good yields.

  3. Vesicle Structures from Bolaamphiphilic Biosurfactants: Experimental and Molecular Dynamics Simulation Studies on the Effect of Unsaturation on Sophorolipid Self-Assemblies

    Prabhu Dhasaiyan, Prithvi Raj Pandey, Nikunjkumar Visaveliya, Dr. Sudip Roy and Dr. B. L. V. Prasad

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201304719

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Giant vesicles from sophorolipids: Linolenic acid sophorolipids (LNSLs)—a class of bolaamphiphilic glycolipids—self-assemble to form giant-vesicle-like structures. It is established that the walls of these vesicles consist of four molecules of LNSLs arranged in a tail–head–head–tail fashion, where the “tail” refers to the carboxylic acid group and the “head” to the sugar moieties.

  4. Copper-free Click-Chemistry Platform to Functionalize Cisplatin Prodrugs

    Dr. Rakesh K. Pathak, Christopher D. McNitt, Prof. Dr. Vladimir V. Popik and Prof. Dr. Shanta Dhar

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201402573

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Clicking into platinum: A platform technology employing copper-free click chemistry to construct platinum(IV) prodrugs with numerous functionalities to release the active drug cisplatin was devised. This technology allows easy construction of highly functionalized PtIV prodrugs from a single azide precursor and suitably functionalized strained alkyne with high efficiency and purity in a single step. Application of this new methodology can be in combination therapy, targeted drug delivery, and in theranostics (see scheme).

  5. Fast Pirouetting Motion in a Pyridine Bisamine-Containing Copper-Complexed Rotaxane

    Prof. Eugenio Coronado, Prof. Pablo Gaviña, Julia Ponce and Dr. Sergio Tatay

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201304434

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Making pirouettes: The introduction of 3,8-ethynyl-phenanthroline and pyridine bisamine ligands as new building blocks have afforded a synthetically accessible pirouetting copper rotaxane (see figure), which presents the higher switching rate constants reported to date.
