The following papers are very important in the opinion of two referees.
Ruthenium-Immobilized Periodic Mesoporous Organosilica: Synthesis, Characterization, and Catalytic Application for Selective Oxidation of Alkanes
Nobuhiro Ishito, Dr. Hirokazu Kobayashi, Dr. Kiyotaka Nakajima, Yoshifumi Maegawa, Dr. Shinji Inagaki, Dr. Kenji Hara and Prof. Dr. Atsushi Fukuoka
Ru species were immobilized in an isolated form directly on 2,2’-bypyridine groups in a periodic mesoporous organosilica (PMO) framework. The Ru-immobilized PMO oxidizes the tertiary CH bonds of adamantane with significantly high regioselectivity. Moreover, the catalyst converts cis-decalin to cis-9-decalol with complete retention of the substrate stereochemistry (see scheme).
Activation of Hsp90 Enzymatic Activity and Conformational Dynamics through Rationally Designed Allosteric Ligands
Dr. Sara Sattin, Dr. Jiahui Tao, Dr. Gerolamo Vettoretti, Dr. Elisabetta Moroni, Dr. Marzia Pennati, Dr. Alessia Lopergolo, Dr. Laura Morelli, Dr. Antonella Bugatti, Dr. Abbey Zuehlke, Dr. Mike Moses, Dr. Thomas Prince, Dr. Toshiki Kijima, Dr. Kristin Beebe, Dr. Marco Rusnati, Dr. Len Neckers, Dr. Nadia Zaffaroni, Prof. David A. Agard, Prof. Anna Bernardi and Dr. Giorgio Colombo
A little goes a long way: Molecular dynamics-based design provides a new series of allosteric activators of the Hsp90 molecular chaperone. These probes affect the viability of cancer cell lines for which proper functioning of Hsp90 is necessary.
Callipeltosides A, B and C: Total Syntheses and Structural Confirmation
Dr. James R. Frost, Dr. Colin M. Pearson, Prof. Thomas N. Snaddon, Dr. Richard A. Booth, Dr. Richard M. Turner, Dr. Johan Gold, Dr. David M. Shaw, Prof. Matthew J. Gaunt and Prof. Steven V. Ley
Easy as A, B, C: The entire callipeltoside family of natural products have been synthesised in a highly convergent manner. This account details our full research effort and presents further evidence to aid in the stereochemical assignment of the glycosidic linkages present in callipeltosides B and C (see scheme).
Persistent Dialkylsilanone Generated by Dehydrobromination of Dialkylbromosilanol
Dr. Shintaro Ishida, Dr. Takashi Abe, Dr. Fumiya Hirakawa, Tomoyuki Kosai, Katsuhiro Sato, Prof. Dr. Mitsuo Kira and Prof. Dr. Takeaki Iwamoto
Persistent diorganosilanone in solution! A persistent diorganosilanone was synthesized by a new synthetic method, dehydrobromination of the corresponding diorganobromosilanol with tris(trimethylsilyl)silyl potassium in solution at −80 °C (see scheme). The silanone was characterized by NMR and IR spectroscopy, and by chemical trapping. In 29Si NMR spectrum in [D8]toluene, the signal due to the unsaturated silicon nuclei was observed at 128.7 ppm.
