    1. Aluminium-Catalysed Oxazolidinone Synthesis and their Conversion into Functional Non-Symmetrical Ureas

      Victor Laserna, Wusheng Guo and Arjan W. Kleij

      The cover picture, provided by Arjan W. Kleij and co-workers, illustrates the two-step formation of highly functionalized urea synthons from readily available and cheap precursors such as phenyl carbamate, epoxides and amines: an efficient approach to urea-complexity. Versatile aluminium-based (aminotriphenolate) complexes are used for the synthesis of oxazolidinone intermediates which are aminolyzed in the presence of various amine reagents to afford a broad scope of urea derivatives. Their synthetic utility is demonstrated through an alkyne-substituted urea using typical “click” reaction conditions with potential for immobilization or post-synthetic modifications.

      Silver-Catalyzed Construction of Diverse Azopyrazoles

      Rameshwar Prasad Pandit and Yong Rok Lee

      Article first published online: 6 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adsc.201500601

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The front cover picture, provided by Yong Rok Lee and co-worker, illustrates the catalytic application of silver for the construction of multifunctionalized azopyrazoles via cascade reaction of α-diazo-β-keto esters and arylhydrazines. The synthesis of azopyrazoles bearing two different aromatic rings from 4-diazopyrazol-3-ones and aryhydrazine hydrochlorides is a unique advantage of this protocol. Silver-catalyzed in situ pyrazole formation, N–H insertion, and oxidation have great potential for the advancement in the area of carbenoid chemistry.
