Prize-winning chemistry!

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014 has been awarded jointly to Eric Betzig, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Ashburn, VA, USA, Stefan W. Hell, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany, and William E. Moerner, Stanford University, CA, USA, "for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy".

Work from Stefan Hell and his group on masked rhodamine dyes and their applications in light microscopy applications was recently highlighted on the front cover of Chemistry—A European Journal.

  1. A Supramolecular Tetrad Featuring Covalently Linked Ferrocene–Zinc Porphyrin–BODIPY Coordinated to Fullerene: A Charge Stabilizing, Photosynthetic Antenna–Reaction Center Mimic

    Gary N. Lim, Dr. Eranda Maligaspe, Prof. Melvin E. Zandler and Prof. Dr. Francis D'Souza

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404671

    One photon—two photochemical events: Occurrence of sequential photoinduced energy transfer (EnT) followed by electron transfer (ET) leading to charge stabilization in a newly assembled multimodular tetrad, as a photosynthetic-antenna–reaction-center mimic, is reported (see figure; HS=hole shift).

  2. Metal-Free Oxidative Radical Addition of Carbonyl Compounds to α,α-Diaryl Allylic Alcohols: Synthesis of Highly Functionalized Ketones

    Xue-Qiang Chu, Hua Meng, You Zi, Prof. Dr. Xiao-Ping Xu and Prof. Dr. Shun-Jun Ji

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404463

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A metal-free direct alkylation of simple carbonyl compounds with α,α-diaryl allylic alcohols provides facile access to highly functionalized dicarbonyl ketones by a radical addition/1,2-aryl migration cascade. The regioselectivity of the reaction was precisely controlled by the nature of the carbonyl compound (see scheme).

  3. Protonation of a Biologically Relevant CuII μ-Thiolate Complex: Ligand Dissociation or Formation of a Protonated CuI Disulfide Species?

    Erica C. M. Ording-Wenker, Martijn van der Plas, Dr. Maxime A. Siegler, Dr. Célia Fonseca Guerra and Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Bouwman

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201403918

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    The proton-induced conversion of the biomimetic CuII μ-thiolate complex has been investigated, both experimentally and computationally. After addition of only two equivalents of H+ to the CuII μ-thiolate species, the ligand is found to dissociate, forming [CuI(CH3CN)4]+ and the protonated ligand, instead of converting to a protonated CuI disulfide complex, as was reported previously.

  4. Ruthenium-Catalyzed Tandem-Isomerization/Asymmetric Transfer Hydrogenation of Allylic Alcohols

    Tove Slagbrand, Helena Lundberg and Prof. Dr. Hans Adolfsson

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405207

    Less is more: The combination of [{Ru(p-cymene)Cl2}2] with an amino acid hydroxyamide ligand allows for the direct catalytic tandem-isomerization/asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of racemic allylic alcohols to saturated enantiomerically enriched alcohols. A series of racemic allylic alcohols are converted into saturated alcohols under mild reaction conditions in a mixture of ethanol and THF (see scheme).

  5. An AAA–DDD Triply Hydrogen-Bonded Complex Easily Accessible for Supramolecular Polymers

    Yi-Fei Han, Wen-Qiang Chen, Prof. Hong-Bo Wang, Ying-Xue Yuan, Na-Na Wu, Prof. Xiang-Zhi Song and Lan Yang

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404996

    Perfect match: Triply hydrogen-bonded sequences of AAA–DDD (A=acceptor, D=donor) were synthesized from 4-methoxybenzaldehyde through the Hantzsch pyridine synthesis and Friedländer annulation reaction (see figure). The easily synthesized and further derivatized AAA–DDD system is very desirable for hydrogen-bonded functional materials.
