- Thermodynamic Phase Transition Triggered by Distinct Distortion and Ordering of Dipropylammonium Picrate
Yuelan Zhou, Tianliang Chen, Dr. Zhihua Sun, Dr. Shuquan Zhang, Chengmin Ji, Prof. Cheng Song and Prof. Junhua Luo
Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402997
Entering a new phase: Dipropylammonium picrate undergoes a reversible first-order phase transition near 185.0 K, which is triggered by order–disorder transformations with a distortion motion of the chain-like alkylammonium cations. This work provides a useful strategy to explore new phase-transition materials based on flexible chain-like alkylammonium cations.
- Template-Directed In Situ Polymerization Preparation of Nanocomposites of PEDOT:PSS-Coated Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced Thermoelectric Property
Zhuang Zhang, Prof. Guangming Chen, Prof. Hanfu Wang and Prof. Xin Li
Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403100
Raise your level of performance: Nanocomposites of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate)-coated multi-walled carbon nanotubes were fabricated via a template-directed in situ polymerization approach. Interestingly, the obtained nanocomposites display a greatly enhanced thermoelectric performance.
- Chiral Ammonium Betaine-Catalyzed Highly Stereoselective Aza-Henry Reaction of α-Aryl Nitromethanes with Aromatic N-Boc Imines
Dr. Daisuke Uraguchi, Keigo Oyaizu, Haruhiro Noguchi and Prof. Dr. Takashi Ooi
Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402943
What we need is tolerance: A highly stereoselective aza-Henry reaction of α-aryl nitromethanes with aromatic N-Boc imines was established by using C1-symmetric chiral ammonium betaine as a bifunctional organic base catalyst. The reaction tolerated various substituted aryl groups for both imines and nitromethanes, and a series of precursors for the synthesis of unsymmetrical anti-1,2-diaryl ethylenediamines was provided.
- Regioselective CH Imidation of Five-Membered Heterocyclic Compounds through a Metal Catalytic or Organocatalytic Approach
Dr. Xin Wang, Dr. Kai Sun, Dr. Yunhe Lv, Dr. Fengji Ma, Prof. Gang Li, Dr. Donghui Li, Dr. Zhonghong Zhu, Dr. Yongqing Jiang and Dr. Feng Zhao
Article first published online: 21 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403052
Give me five: A regioselective CH imidation of five-membered heterocyclic pyrrole, furan, and thiophene derivatives was realized. Through a metal catalytic or organocatalytic approach, a series of 2-amino- and β-amino-substituted heterocyclic compounds was obtained under atmospheric conditions.
- Synthesis of Quaternary-Carbon-Containing and Functionalized Enantiopure Pentanecarboxylic Acids from Biocatalytic Desymmetrization of meso-Cyclopentane-1,3-Dicarboxamides
Yu-Fei Ao, Dr. De-Xian Wang, Dr. Liang Zhao and Prof. Dr. Mei-Xiang Wang
Article first published online: 21 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402913
As a whole: Rhodococcus erythropolis AJ270, a nitrile hydratase–amidase containing microbial whole-cell catalyst, is able to catalyze enantioselective desymmetrization of meso-cyclopentane-1,3-carboxamides under mild conditions to afford enantiopure quaternary carbon atom bearing 3-carbamoylcyclopentanecarboxylic acids that are not readily available by other means (see scheme; Bn=benzyl).
