Two series of tetrahydroisoindoline-1,3-diones containing an alkoxycarbonyl substituted 2-benzoxazolinone moiety were designed and synthesized. Compound 1h displayed excellent herbicidal effect against Abutilon theophrasti with ED50 values of 1.8 g AI·ha−1, and compound 1h could potentially be used as a new post-emergence herbicide for maize fields.

A series of ionic liquids which possess the same cation and different anions were synthesized to explore the effect of anions on 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) preparation from glucose over AlCl3. Systematic experiments showed that N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone bromide ([NMP]Br) could promote selective conversion of fructose. Theoretical study indicated that Br− could also combine with Al3+, accelerating process of H-shift during glucose isomerization. This discovery can help us choose cocatalysts for low toxic metal, realizing selective conversion of cellulosic biomass conversion.

It was found for the first time that Cs2CO3 serves as highly efficient catalyst for the direct hydroxylation reactions of phosphonates under mild conditions. This reaction provides an efficient approach to quaternary α-hydroxy phosphonates, which possess intriguing biological activities and are widely used in many areas.
