VIP: One-Step Synthesis of a [20]Silafullerane with an Endohedral Chloride Ion

Dipl.-Chem. Jan Tillmann, Dipl.-Chem. Josef Heinrich Wender, Dr. Ute Bahr, Dr. Michael Bolte, Dr. Hans-Wolfram Lerner, Prof. Dr. Max C. Holthausen and Prof. Dr. Matthias Wagner

One-Step Synthesis of a [20]Silafullerane with an Endohedral Chloride IonAs simple as this: A stable, crystalline [20]silafullerane forms in preparatively useful yields through wet-chemical self-assembly from Si2Cl6 and chloride ions in the presence of an amine. Each silicon dodecahedron contains an endohedral chloride ion that imparts a net negative charge. Eight chloro substituents and twelve trichlorosilyl groups are attached to the surface of each cluster in a strictly regioregular arrangement.

Angewandte Chemie 11/2015: 150 Years of BASFTo celebrate BASF's special anniversary, this issue offers a collection of Reviews and Essays covering the contributions made by chemistry in the areas of energy, nutrition, and urban living. Among the Essays, BASF Research Executive Director A. Kreimeyer at al. describe how chemistry creates sustainable solutions for a growing world population (see picture), and G. M. Whitesides discusses the future of chemistry.

Among the Minireviews, H. J. Snaith et al. summarize the formation of thin films of organic–inorganic perovskites for high-efficiency solar cells, and M. J. Krische et al. discuss C1 feedstocks in metal-catalyzed C–C couplings of unsaturated reactants.

The Reviews include contributions by J.-M. Lehn, who writes about adaptive chemistry and materials, and M. X. Hu et al., who shed new light on synthetic membranes for water purification.

Hot Paper: Targeted Fluorination with the Fluoride Ion by Manganese-Catalyzed Decarboxylation

Xiongyi Huang, Dr. Wei Liu, Prof. Jacob M. Hooker and Prof. John T. Groves

Targeted Fluorination with the Fluoride Ion by Manganese-Catalyzed DecarboxylationNucleophile first: An efficient manganese porphyrin catalyzed decarboxylative fluorination reaction based on a nucleophilic fluorine source is described. The potential of the described method for use in PET imaging has been demonstrated by the successful 18F labeling of various aliphatic carboxylic acids, representing the first decarboxylative 18F labeling method with no-carrier-added [18F]fluoride.

Ruthenium(II)-Catalyzed C<img src="http://onlinelibrarystatic.wiley.com/undisplayable_characters/00f8ff.gif" alt="[BOND]" />H Activation/Alkyne Annulation by Weak Coordination with O2 as the Sole OxidantAir and water: Ruthenium(II) biscarboxylates allow for the annulation of alkynes and alkenes by oxidative C[BOND]H functionalizations with molecular oxygen as the sole oxidant. The C[BOND]H/O[BOND]H functionalization process occurs with excellent selectivities under mild reaction conditions, with water produced as the only by-product.

Hot Paper: Polymeric Micelle Assembly with Inorganic Nanosheets for Construction of Mesoporous Architectures with Crystallized Walls

Dr. Bishnu Prasad Bastakoti, Yunqi Li, Dr. Masataka Imura, Prof. Nobuyoshi Miyamoto, Prof. Teruyuki Nakato, Prof. Takayoshi Sasaki and Prof. Yusuke Yamauchi

Polymeric Micelle Assembly with Inorganic Nanosheets for Construction of Mesoporous Architectures with Crystallized WallsMesoporous architectures were obtained through evaporation-induced assembly of polymeric micelles with crystalline nanosheets. The electrostatic interactions between negatively charged nanosheets and positively charged polymeric micelles make possible the formation of composite micelles. Removal of the micelles by calcination results in mesoporous oxides with the original crystalline structure.

Hot Paper: Photoinduced Postsynthetic Polymerization of a Metal–Organic Framework toward a Flexible Stand-Alone Membrane

Yuanyuan Zhang, Dr. Xiao Feng, Haiwei Li, Yifa Chen, Jingshu Zhao, Shan Wang, Lu Wang and Prof. Dr. Bo Wang

Photoinduced Postsynthetic Polymerization of a Metal–Organic Framework toward a Flexible Stand-Alone MembraneLink-Up: A UV-light-induced postsynthetic polymerization (PSP) was employed to covalently link crystals of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) by flexible polymer chains. The obtained MOF-based membranes are homogeneously structured and show very good separation capacities for the removal of CrVI ions from water.

Hot Paper: Cooperative Bond Activation and Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide at a Group 13 Metal Center

Joseph A. B. Abdalla, Dr. Ian M. Riddlestone, Rémi Tirfoin and Prof. Simon Aldridge

Cooperative Bond Activation and Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide at a Group 13 Metal CenterA single-component ambiphilic Group 13 system has been developed, capable of the cooperative activation of protic, hydridic and apolar H[BOND]X bonds. The hydride complex derived from the activation of H2 catalyzes the selective transformation of CO2 to a methanol derivative, representing the first example of such a reduction process catalyzed by a molecular gallium complex.

VIP: On the Role of the Electronic Structure of the Heteronuclear Oxide Cluster [Ga2Mg2O5].+ in the Thermal Activation of Methane and Ethane: An Unusual Doping Effect

Dr. Jilai Li, Dr. Xiao-Nan Wu, Dr. Maria Schlangen, Dr. Shaodong Zhou, Dr. Patricio González-Navarrete, Dr. Shiya Tang and Prof. Dr. Helmut Schwarz

On the Role of the Electronic Structure of the Heteronuclear Oxide Cluster [Ga2Mg2O5].+ in the Thermal Activation of Methane and Ethane: An Unusual Doping EffectBridging oxygen: A combination of mass spectrometry and quantum chemical calculations shows that [Ga2Mg2O5].+, bearing an unpaired electron at a bridging oxygen atom, is capable of activating the C[BOND]H bond of methane. The roles of spin density and charge distributions in hydrogen-atom transfer processes provide important guidance for the rational design of catalysts.

Dr. Yuehui Li, Dr. Christoph Topf, Dr. Xinjiang Cui, Dr. Kathrin Junge and Prof. Dr. Matthias Beller

Lewis Acid Promoted Ruthenium(II)-Catalyzed Etherifications by Selective Hydrogenation of Carboxylic Acids/EstersAn assist from Al: A bifunctional catalyst system consisting of a Ru/phosphine complex and aluminum triflate allows selective hydrogenation of esters to ethers. A variety of lactones were reduced to the desired products in good yields. The catalyst further provides a general method for the reduction of linear esters and reductive etherification of carboxylic acids with alcohols.

VIP: Oxidative Addition of Carbon–Carbon Bonds to Gold

Dr. Maximilian Joost, Dr. Laura Estévez, Dr. Karinne Miqueu, Dr. Abderrahmane Amgoune and Dr. Didier Bourissou

Oxidative Addition of Carbon–Carbon Bonds to GoldGold(I) complexes ([(DPCb)Au]+) readily insert into the four-membered rings of biphenylene and benzocyclobutenone. These transformations afforded well-defined cationic organogold(III) complexes that were isolated and fully characterized. [(DPCb)Au]+ is the only complex to cleave selectively either the C(aryl)[BOND]C(O) or the C(alkyl)[BOND]C(O) bond of benzocyclobutenone under kinetic/thermodynamic control. DPCb=diphosphinocarborane.
