- Visible-Light Photocatalytic Conversion of Carbon Dioxide into Methane Using Cu2O/TiO2 Hollow Nanospheres
Feng Bi, Muhammad Fahad Ehsan, Wei Liu and Tao He
Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400476
The composite of Cu2O/TiO2 hollow nanospheres exhibit higher efficiency in photocatalytic reduction of CO2 into CH4 under visible-light irradiation than Cu2O because of the heterojunction formation in the composite and the improved catalyst stability.
- Synthesis of Functionalized 1-Benzamido-1,4-dihydropyridines via a One-Pot Two-Step Four-Component Reaction
Jing Sun, Guoliang Shen, Yajing Xie and Chaoguo Yan
Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400437
A one-pot four-component reaction of benzohydrazide, acetylenedicarboxylate, aromatic aldehydes and malononitrile in ethanol with triethylamine as base catalyst afforded functionalized 1-benzamido-1,4-dihydropyridines in satisfactory yields.
- A Concise Synthesis of 2-(2-Hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles via the o-Quinone Methides Generated from 2-(1-Tosylalkyl)phenols
Bo Wu, Xiang Gao, Mu-Wang Chen and Yong-Gui Zhou
Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400463
A concise synthesis of 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles has been developed through reaction of trimethylsilyl cyanide and the o-quinone methides in situ generated from 2-(1-tosylalkyl)phenols under basic conditions. In addition, 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles could be conveniently transformed to benzofuranones.

A photo induced covalent inhibitor has been discovered for protein phosphatase calcineurin, the target of immunosuppressive drugs cyclosporin and tacrolimus.
- Two Cluster-Based Coordination Polymers Derived from [Et4N][Tp*WS3(CuBr)3] and CuCN: Isolation, Structures and Amplified Third-Order Nonlinear Optical Responses
Quan Liu, Wenhua Zhang, Zhenrong Sun and Jianping Lang
Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400412
Two coordination polymers [Tp*WS3Cu3(µ3-DMF)(CN)3Cu]2·2DMF (2·2DMF, 2D network) and [Tp*WS3Cu3(µ3-DMF)(CN)3Cu(α-tolunitrile)]2·3MeCN (3·3MeCN, 1D ladder chain) were isolated from the reaction of a W/Cu/S precursor [Et4N][Tp*WS3(CuBr)3] (1) with three equiv. of CuCN in DMF/MeCN/benzonitrile or DMF/MeCN/α-tolunitrile mixed solvents. The third-order nonlinear optical responses of 2 and 3 in DMF were 10 times augmented compared to those of the precursor 1.
