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.

- 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
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).
- CH 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
Direct ortho-hydroxylation through CH 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.
- 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
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.
- 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
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).
- 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
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.
