  1. 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

    Version of Record online: 25 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601999

    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.

  2. Diversification of ortho-Fused Cycloocta-2,5-dien-1-one Cores and Eight to Six-Ring Conversion by σ Bond C−C Cleavage

    Lee Eccleshare, Leticia Lozada-Rodríguez, Phillippa Cooper, Dr. Laurence Burroughs, John Ritchie, Dr. William Lewis and Prof. Dr. Simon Woodward

    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.

  3. Boron Lewis Acid-Catalyzed Hydroboration of Alkenes with Pinacolborane: BArF3 Does What B(C6F5)3 Cannot Do!

    Qin Yin, Sebastian Kemper, Hendrik Klare and Martin Oestreich

  4. 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

    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.

  5. 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

    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.
