- Selective C−H and C−C Bond Activation: Electronic Regimes as a Tool for Designing d10 MLn Catalysts
Lando P. Wolters and Prof. Dr. F. Matthias Bickelhaupt
Article first published online: 28 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500368
Custom Design! We develop an approach to design d10 MLn catalysts that can selectively activate C−H bonds versus C−C bonds in ethane or C−H bonds in ethane versus those in methane by making use of subtle differences in the electronic structures of these bonds. Promising insight is obtained through detailed quantum-chemical analyses with the activation strain model and quantitative molecular orbital theory.

One step closer: Reduced graphene oxide/Pd–Fe3O4@polypyrrole catalysts were prepared in one step (see scheme). They showed superior catalytic activity and good reusability in the reduction of 4-nitrophenol with NaBH4 as reducing agent.

Sole purpose: Phthalide skeletons have been synthesized through a RhIII-catalyzed C−H olefination of benzoic acids under mild conditions using oxygen as the sole oxidant. Aromatic acids bearing different functional groups were treated with diverse alkenes to afford the desired cyclized lactones or uncyclized alkenylarenes in moderate-to-excellent yields.
