  1. An Unexpected Double Diels–Alder Reaction of (E)-2-Bromo-4-aryl-1,3-pentadiene Involving [1,5]-Hydrogen Migration and HBr Elimination: Synthesis of Bicyclo[2.2.2]octene Derivatives

    Pingping Huang, Dr. Lingyan Liu, Weixing Chang and Prof. Jing Li

    Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403092

    React and repeat: An unexpected one-pot double Diels–Alder reaction of (E)-2-bromo-4-aryl-1,3-pentadiene was developed and resulted in a series of bicyclo[2.2.2]octene derivatives without the need for a metal catalyst (see scheme). The proposed mechanism involves a [1,5]-sigmatropic hydrogen migration and HBr elimination.

  2. Mechanistic Studies of Magnetically Recyclable Pd[BOND]Fe3O4 Heterodimeric Nanocrystal-Catalyzed Organic Reactions

    Sangmoon Byun, Jooyoung Chung, Jungmin Kwon and Prof. Dr. B. Moon Kim

    Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403201

    Private investigation: Pd[BOND]Fe3O4 heterodimeric nanocrystals exhibit good reactivity in many organic reactions, are easily recovered using an external magnet, and can be reused several times. In this study, we investigated the reaction mechanism of Pd[BOND]Fe3O4 heterodimeric nanocrystal-catalyzed Suzuki cross-coupling and Wacker oxidation reactions through kinetic experiments, hot filtration tests, and three-phase tests.

  3. Size-Controllable Synthesis of Trimetallic RhPdPt Island-Shaped Nanoalloys with Enhanced Electrocatalytic Performance for Ethanol Oxidation in Alkaline Medium

    Da-Bing Huang, Pei-Lei He, Prof. Dr. Qiang Yuan and Prof. Dr. Xun Wang

    Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403310

    Better together: High-yield, island-shaped RhPdPt trimetallic nanoalloys with sub-2.0 nm islands were achieved through a facile, environmentally friendly, aqueous approach. Due to the special structure and intermetallic synergies, the Rh10Pd40Pt50 nanoalloys exhibited an enhanced catalytic activity and durability relative to island-shaped Pd50Pt50 bimetallic nanoalloys and commercial Pt black for ethanol oxidation in alkaline medium.

  4. Anthryl-1,2,4-oxadiazole-Substituted Calix[4]arenes as Highly Selective Fluorescent Chemodosimeters for Fe3+

    Ying-Jung Chen, Shun-Chieh Yang, Dr. Chia-Chen Tsai, Dr. Kai-Chi Chang, Wen-Han Chuang, Wei-Lun Chu, Prof. Dr. Vladimir Kovalev and Prof. Dr. Wen-Sheng Chung

    Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403265

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Ironing out dosimeters: 3-(9-Anthryl)-1,2,4-oxadiazole substituents appended to calix[4]arene skeletons are the key components for Fe3+-selective fluorescent quenching that lead to various oxanthrone oxidation products. The oxidation products of these molecules by Fe3+ are separated and characterized, and the reaction mechanism is discussed.

  5. Highly Efficient Aerobic Oxidation of Alcohols by Using Less-Hindered Nitroxyl-Radical/Copper Catalysis: Optimum Catalyst Combinations and Their Substrate Scope

    Dr. Yusuke Sasano, Naoki Kogure, Tomohiro Nishiyama, Shota Nagasawa and Prof. Dr. Yoshiharu Iwabuchi

    Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403245

    New radicals: A highly efficient aerobic oxidation of alcohols by using AZADO-type nitroxyl-radical/copper catalysis has been developed. The optimum combination of the nitroxyl radical, copper salt, and solution concentration was dependent on the type of substrate. The optimum conditions efficiently oxidized various alcohols, including highly hindered and heteroatom-rich alcohols, under mild conditions.
