    Cover Picture: A Concise Synthesis of 2-(2-Hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles via the o-Quinone Methides Generated from 2-(1-Tosylalkyl)phenols (Chin. J. Chem. 10/2014) (page 925)

    The cover picture shows a concise synthesis of 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles through reaction of 2-(1-tosylalkyl)phenols and trimethylsilyl cyanide in the presence of base potassium carbonate and tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride (TBAF). 2-(1-Tosylalkyl)phenols generate ortho-quinone methides (o-QM) intermediates under the basic conditions and TBAF serves as an initiator to deliver cyanide anion. Subsequently, o-QM intermediates undergo Michael addition with the cyanide anion to furnish 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles. Additionally, the adduct 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)acetonitriles can be conveniently transformed to benzofuranones. This methodology features good yields and the products can be further functionalized. More details are discussed in the article by Zhou et al. on page 981–984.

    A facile and divergent synthesis of benzofuro[2,3-c]pyridines has been achieved under mild conditions through intramolecular cascade annulation. This reaction could efficiently construct pyridine ring and furan ring in one step.

  4. Synthesis and Surface Activity Study of a Novel Branched Fluorinated Anion Surfactant with CF3CF2CF2C(CF3)2 Group (pages 995–998)

    A novel branched fluorinated anion surfactant 4-(3,3,4,4,5,5,5-heptafluoro-2,2-bis-trifluoromethyl-pentyl)-benzene lithium phosphonate was successfully synthesized via a four-step route using perfluoro-2-methyl-2-pentene as starting material. The surface activity was investigated. The result showed that the cmc value of the surfactant in water is about 1.5×10−2 mol/L at 298 K and the surface tension of the aqueous solution is 19.2 mN/m at the cmc.

    An unprecedented protocol has been developed for the efficiend synthesis of substituted tetrahydropyrans via a bismuth-promoted Prins cyclization of imines with homoallyl alcohols. In the presence of 40 mol% BiCl3, a wide variety of imines react smoothly with homoallyl alcohols at room temperature to give the corresponding 4-chlorotetrahydropyran derivatives in good to excellent yields.
