    Recent Developments in the Chemistry of Thiourea Oxides

    Prof. Sergei V. Makarov, Prof. Attila K. Horváth, Prof. Radu Silaghi-Dumitrescu and Prof. Qingyu Gao

    Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201403453

    1, 2, 3, go! The review provides a detailed overview on recent developments in the chemistry and applications of thiourea mono-, di-, and trioxide including organocatalysis; phase-transfer and polymerization reactions; reduction of graphene and graphite oxides; bitumen modifications; synthesis of guanidines and their derivatives; and the study of nonlinear dynamical phenomena in chemical kinetics.

  2. Electrochemical Properties of Tin Oxide Flake/Reduced Graphene Oxide/Carbon Composite Powders as Anode Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Su Min Lee, Seung Ho Choi and Prof. Yun Chan Kang

    Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404077

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Hierarchical composites: Hierarchically structured tin oxide/reduced graphene oxide (RGO)/carbon composite materials with controlled morphologies are prepared by spray pyrolysis. The tin oxide/RGO/carbon composite powders, with a mixed crystal structure of SnO and SnO2 (see figure), have superior electrochemical properties to tin oxide/RGO, tin oxide/carbon, and bare tin oxide powders.

  3. Intramolecular C[BOND]H/O[BOND]H Bond Cleavage with Water and Alcohol Using a Phosphine-Free Ruthenium Carbene NCN Pincer Complex

    Demyan E. Prokopchuk, Brian T. H. Tsui, Dr. Alan J. Lough and Prof. Dr. Robert H. Morris

    Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404819

    Proton pincer ping-pong: New phosphine-free Ru–NCN pincer complexes have been synthesized. The complexes’ dearomatized alkoxide/hydroxide analogues undergo unprecedented regioselective, intramolecular C[BOND]H/O[BOND]H bond activation with tert-butanol or water at 25 °C, as shown by NMR spectroscopy and DFT calculations.

  4. Activation of Small Molecules by Phosphorus Biradicaloids

    Alexander Hinz, Dr. Rene Kuzora, Prof.Dr. Uwe Rosenthal, Prof.Dr. Axel Schulz and Dr. Alexander Villinger

    Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201403964

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Catch me if you can, radical! The reactivity of biradicaloid [P(μ-NTer)]2 was utilized to activate small molecules bearing single, double, and triple bonds (see scheme). Novel P2N2 bridged heterocycles are formed in the formal [2+2] addition reactions.

  5. A Combined Metal–Halide/Metal Flux Synthetic Route towards Type-I Clathrates: Crystal Structures and Thermoelectric Properties of A8Al8Si38 (A=K, Rb, and Cs)

    Volodymyr Baran, Dr. Anatoliy Senyshyn, Dr. Antti J. Karttunen, Andreas Fischer, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Scherer, Dr. Gabriele Raudaschl-Sieber and Prof. Dr. Thomas F. Fässler

    Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201403416

    It takes two: A large-scale synthesis of clathrate compounds is described by the reaction of an arc-melted aluminum–silicon alloy with alkali metals in alkali-metal halide flux media. The Si/Al ratios are determined by using X-ray and neutron diffraction as well as 27Al-MAS NMR spectroscopy methods. The three materials A8Al8Si38 (A=K, Rb, and Cs) are further characterized by magnetic and transport measurements.
