  1. 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.

  2. One Step Preparation of Reduced Graphene Oxide/Pd–Fe3O4@Polypyrrole Composites and Their Application in Catalysis

    Dr. Tongjie Yao, Hao Wang, Quan Zuo, Dr. Jie Wu, Dr. Xiao Zhang, Dr. Fang Cui and Dr. Tieyu Cui

    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.

  3. RhIII-Catalyzed C−H Olefination of Benzoic Acids under Mild Conditions using Oxygen as the Sole Oxidant

    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.
