  1. Stereoselective Nucleophilic Addition of PhSCF2SiMe3 to Chiral Cyclic Nitrones: Asymmetric Synthesis of gem-Difluoromethylenated Polyhydroxypyrrolizidines and -indolizidines

    Korkit Korvorapun, Dr. Darunee Soorukram, Dr. Chutima Kuhakarn, Prof. Dr. Patoomratana Tuchinda, Prof. Dr. Vichai Reutrakul and Prof. Dr. Manat Pohmakotr

    It′s a gem! Stereoselective fluoride-catalyzed nucleophilic addition of a difluoro(phenylsulfanyl)methyl group (“PhSCF2”) generated from PhSCF2SiMe3 to chiral cyclic nitrones was accomplished in satisfactory yields with high diastereoselectivities. The developed method provides a general access to chiral gem-difluoromethylenated polyhydroxypyrrolizidine and indolizidine derivatives.

  2. Topotecan-Loaded Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles for Reversing Multi-Drug Resistance by Synergetic Chemoradiotherapy

    Dr. Bo Shen, Dr. Kuaile Zhao, Dr. Shulan Ma, Dr. Dexiao Yuan and Dr. Yang Bai

    Article first published online: 20 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403117

    The is a synergy going on here: By the encapsulation of the radiosensitizing drug TPT into the mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), synergetic chemoradiotherapeutic effects can be produced upon X-ray irradiation to kill multi-drug resistant (MDR) cells through significant DNA damage, thus leading to an efficient circumvention of MDR.

  3. Synthesis of Acylphosphonates by a Palladium-Catalyzed Phosphonocarbonylation Reaction of Aryl Iodides with Phosphites

    Yusuke Masuda, Dr. Naoki Ishida and Prof. Dr. Masahiro Murakami

    Article first published online: 20 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403260

    CO Confidential: Acylphosphonates are conveniently synthesized from aryl iodides by a palladium-catalyzed reaction with dialkyl phosphites under an atmospheric pressure of carbon monoxide. The reaction demonstrates the first example of the use of phosphorus nucleophiles in analogous metal-catalyzed carbonylation reactions.

  4. Ultrathin Cerium Orthovanadate Nanobelts for High-Performance Flexible All-Solid-State Asymmetric Supercapacitors

    Junzhi He, Dr. Junhong Zhao, Zhen Run, Mengjun Sun and Prof. Huan Pang

    Article first published online: 19 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403085

    Fasten your nanobelt: Ultrathin CeVO4 nanobelts were easily assembled in a flexible all-solid-state asymmetric supercapacitor device, which shows a high flexibility, a large energy density, and a high life cycle.

  5. Structural Studies and Anticancer Activity of a Novel Class of β-Peptides

    Prof. Dr. Konstantin V. Kudryavtsev, Chia-Chun Yu, Polina M. Ivantcova, Prof. Dr. Vladimir I. Polshakov, Dr. Andrei V. Churakov, Prof. Dr. Stefan Bräse, Prof. Dr. Nikolay S. Zefirov and Prof. Dr. Jih-Hwa Guh
