- Prebiotic-Like Condensations of Cyanamide and Glyoxal: Revisiting Intractable Biotars
Dr. Nieves Lavado, Dr. Juan Carlos Escamilla, Dr. Martín Ávalos, Dr. Reyes Babiano, Dr. Pedro Cintas, Dr. José Luis Jiménez and Dr. Juan Carlos Palacios

When matter matters: Prebiotic chemistry is almost synonymous with complex chemistry, with organic matter of polymeric nature hidden and embedded in interstellar dust and planetary bodies. Laboratory simulations that embrace simple prebiotic monomers provide some clues to a large number of chemicals that are available to structural elucidation; such a simulation is shown here with cyanamide, glyoxal, and acetone.
- Diversification of ortho-Fused Cycloocta-2,5-dien-1-one Cores and Eight to Six-Ring Conversion by σ Bond C−C Cleavage

Medium-ring compounds: Simple 1–3 step processes provide access to 6,n-bycyclic ring systems (n=6,8,9) and other rapidly prepared derivatives (see scheme). Several of the compounds described herein have already revealed significant activity in open-innovation drug-discovery programmes.

- Lanthanide Tetrazolate Complexes Combining Single-Molecule Magnet and Luminescence Properties: The Effect of the Replacement of Tetrazolate N3 by β-Diketonate Ligands on the Anisotropy Energy Barrier
Juan-Ramón Jiménez, Ismael F. Díaz-Ortega, Eliseo Ruiz, Daniel Aravena, Simon J. A. Pope, Enrique Colacio and Juan Manuel Herrera

More effective: Mononuclear LnL3 complexes prepared from a tridentate phenanthroline-tetrazolate ligand (HL) exhibit field-induced single-molecule magnet (SMM) behavior with very low thermal energy barriers. Replacement of one tridentate ligand L by a β-diketonate ligand induces a significant increase in the effective energy barrier for the reversal of the magnetization Ueff, and thus these complexes behave as SMMs in zero field.
- Iridium(I) Compounds as Prospective Anticancer Agents: Solution Chemistry, Antiproliferative Profiles and Protein Interactions for a Series of Iridium(I) N-Heterocyclic Carbene Complexes
Dr. Yvonne Gothe, Dr. Tiziano Marzo, Prof. Dr. Luigi Messori and Prof. Dr. Nils Metzler-Nolte
Version of Record online: 22 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601542
Iridium—a new player in the game: Iridium compounds in the oxidation state +I with NHC ligands show excellent antiproliferative activity against several cell lines (see figure). Mass spectrometry studies demonstrate that cellular proteins are likely targets of this new class of prospective anticancer agents.
