Rhodium-Catalyzed Dynamic Kinetic Asymmetric Allylation of Phenols and 2-Hydroxypyridines

Transform your chemistry: A rhodium-catalyzed dynamic kinetic asymmetric allylation of different nucleophiles with racemic allylic carbonates has been developed. High regio- and enantioselectivities can be obtained under neutral conditions and, furthermore, the chemoselectivities can be controlled by different diphosphine ligands (see scheme).

Cobalt Carbonate Hydroxide Nanowire Array on Ti Mesh: An Efficient and Robust 3D Catalyst for On-Demand Hydrogen Generation from Alkaline NaBH4 Solution

Hydrogen generation: The catalytic dehydrogenation of NaBH4 in alkaline media for on-demand hydrogen generation can be effectively driven by self-supported Co(CO3)0.5(OH)⋅0.11 H2O nanowire array on Ti mesh (CHNA/Ti), with a high hydrogen generation rate of 4000 mL min−1 gCo−1 and a low activation energy of 39.78 kJ mol−1.

A Porous Zirconium-Based Metal-Organic Framework with the Potential for the Separation of Butene Isomers

MOFs in the butene business: We report the first zirconium-based metal-organic framework constructed from a triangular tricarboxylate ligand exhibiting a promising potential for the separation of butene isomers, which is very difficult in petrochemical processing.

Kinetically Controlled Assembly of Nitrogen-Doped Invaginated Carbon Nanospheres with Tunable Mesopores

Etch it out! Nitrogen-doped invaginated carbon nanospheres with high specific surface areas (up to 1118 m2 g−1), large pore volumes (2.47 cm3 g−1), and tunable mesopores (3.7–11.1 nm) have been prepared by a surfactant-free strategy, through an ethylenediamine-assisted cooperative assembly between a 3-aminophenol/formaldehyde resin and silica templates.

Studies on the Magnetic Ground State of a Spin Möbius Strip

Studies on the Magnetic Ground State of a Spin Möbius Strip

Spinning round in circles: In this work the spin ground state of homospin seven-membered rings was studied in detail and compared to even-membered analogues. The odd-membered species were found to be spin Möbius strips (see figure).

Activation of Elemental Sulfur at a Two-Coordinate Platinum(0) Center

Activation of Elemental Sulfur at a Two-Coordinate Platinum(0) Center

Elemental sulfur/oxygen was reacted with cyclic alkyl(amino) carbene stabilized platinum(0) complexes (cAAC)2Pt0 to give (cAAC)2Pt(S2)/(cAAC)2Pt(O2). These complexes were characterized by spectroscopic methods. The sulfur analogues were additionally characterized by X-ray single-crystal diffraction. The bonding and stability of these complexes were studied by theoretical calculation (see figure).

Cubic Siloxanes with Both Si−H and Si−OtBu Groups for Site-Selective Siloxane Bond Formation

Cubic Siloxanes with Both Si−H and Si−OtBu Groups for Site-Selective Siloxane Bond Formation

Selectivity cubed: Cubic siloxanes have been synthesized with Si−H and Si−OtBu groups at specific positions [(tBuO)nH8−nSi8O12; n=1, 2, or 7]. Each functional group can be employed for siloxane bond formation while the other functional group remains intact, suggesting that such bifunctional cage siloxanes are useful for stepwise reactions to design various siloxane-based nanomaterials (see scheme).
