    1. Copper-Catalyzed Decarboxylative C[TRIPLE BOND]N Triple Bond Formation: Direct Synthesis of Benzonitriles from Phenylacetic Acids Under O2 Atmosphere

      Qiang Feng and Qiuling Song

      Article first published online: 18 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201400205

      The front cover picture, provided by Qiang Feng and Qiuling Song, illustrates a copper-catalyzed reaction of phenylacetic acids and urea to afford benzonitriles under an oxygen atmosphere. This reaction proceeds smoothly by a sequence of decarboxylation, dioxygen activation, C-H bond functionalization, and nitrile formation with urea as the nitrogen source. Molecular oxygen was found to play a crucial role in this transformation. This reaction represents a novel protocol for the formation of benzonitriles in an environmental friendly way and with good functional group tolerability, as reported in the communication on pages xxxx–xxxx (Q. Feng, Q. Song, Adv. Synth. Catal.­ 2014, 356, xxxx–xxxx; DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201301001).
