- Redox Switching in Ethenyl-Bridged Bisphospholes
Dr. Anna I. Arkhypchuk, Dr. Edgar Mijangos, Dr. Reiner Lomoth and Dr. Sascha Ott
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405525
Teaching phospholes the switch: Unprecedented and reversible redox chemistry at the butadiene portion of phospholes is reported. Depending on the oxidation state of the implemented 2e−/2H+ redox platform in the ethenyl-bridged bisphospholes, the title compounds exhibit altered-conjugation topologies and thus optical properties. The reported chemistry enables future developments of new electrochromic switches that can be tuned over the entire visible spectrum.
- Self-Assembly of N-Heterocyclic Derivatives of Divalent Germanium, Tin, and Lead
Dr. Alexander V. Zabula, Prof. Dr. Andrey Yu. Rogachev and Prof. Dr. Robert West
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405062
Remarkably stable N-heterocyclic derivatives of divalent germanium, tin, and lead have been successfully isolated. Structural evaluations revealed the tetrameric supramolecular aggregation of these molecules through strong intermolecular NEII interactions. Theoretical studies demonstrate significant energy gain upon the formation of tetramers compared to monomeric or dimeric units (see figure).
- Experimental and Computational Studies of a Multi-Electron Donor–Acceptor Ligand Containing the Thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole Core and its Incorporation into a Metal–Organic Framework
Felix J. Rizzuto, Dr. Thomas B. Faust, Dr. Bun Chan, Carol Hua, Dr. Deanna M. D'Alessandro and Prof. Cameron J. Kepert
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405089
Give and take: A donor–acceptor–donor ligand, specifically designed to exhibit charge transfer, promotes conversion to diamagnetic cations during oxidation, each of which fluoresces at different wavelengths. Upon its incorporation into a metal–organic framework, the reducible nature of the thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole core is carried forward, whereas oxidation processes cease altogether.
- Palladium-Catalyzed Carbonylative Reactions of 1-Bromo-2-fluorobenzenes with Various Nucleophiles: Effective Combination of Carbonylation and Nucleophilic Substitution
Jianbin Chen, Dr. Kishore Natte, Dr. Helfried Neumann and Prof. Xiao-Feng Wu
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405221
COupling: A systematic study on the carbonylative transformation of 1-bromo-2-fluorobenzenes with various nucleophiles has been performed. Different types of double nucleophiles, such as NN, NC, OC, and NS, can be effectively applied. The corresponding six-membered heterocycles, that is, isoquinolinones, isochromenones, and quinazolinones were isolated in moderate to good yields.
- One-Pot Synthesis of 2,5-Dihydropyrroles from Terminal Alkynes, Azides, and Propargylic Alcohols by Relay Actions of Copper, Rhodium, and Gold
Prof. Dr. Tomoya Miura, Takamasa Tanaka, Kohei Matsumoto and Prof. Dr. Masahiro Murakami
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405357
Trio works! Relay actions of copper, rhodium, and gold formulate a one-pot multistep pathway, which directly gave 2,5-dihydropyrroles starting from terminal alkynes, sulfonyl azides, and propargylic alcohols. A single execution of work-up/purification procedures gives substantial expansion of the structural, as well as functional complexities (see scheme).
