  1. Diindolo[2,3-b:2,3-f]pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyrroles as Electron-Rich, Ladder-Type Fluorophores: Synthesis and Optical Properties

    Dr. Anita Janiga, Maciej Krzeszewski and Prof. Daniel T. Gryko

    Article first published online: 1 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402925

    Feeling a little blue: Unprecedented heterocycles containing four linearly fused pyrrole moieties are synthesized in three steps from commercially available materials. All these π-expanded pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyrroles display blue emission, and the fluorescence quantum yields are typically over 70 %. The is located at −4.6 to −5.1 eV.

  2. Copper(II)-Mediated Transformation of a Tridentate Non-Innocent Ligand into a Tetradentate Salen-Type Innocent Ligand

    Samir Ghorai and Dr. Chandan Mukherjee

    Article first published online: 1 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402868

    Radically different: The H4Linline image ligand is a combination of benzylamine, the substrate part, and 4,6-di-tert-butyl-2-aminophenol, the π-radical generating part. It reacts with CuII to provide 1 through ligand-centered amine oxidation, C[BOND]N bond cleavage, and C[BOND]O bond formation. H4L2, a geometrical isomer of H4Linline image, and H3L1, the two-electron oxidized (imine) form of H4L2, also provide 1 under the same reaction conditions.

  3. Enantioselective Radical Alkynylation of C(sp3)-H Bonds Using Sulfoximine as a Traceless Chiral Auxiliary

    Dr. Masanori Nagatomo, Shun Yoshioka and Prof. Dr. Masayuki Inoue

    Article first published online: 1 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402983

    Without a trace: Enantioselective alkynylation of C(sp3)[BOND]H bonds adjacent to a nitrogen atom has been achieved using only chiral p-tolyl tert-butyldimethylsilylethynyl sulfoximine and benzophenone under photo-irradiation conditions. The NH-unprotected sulfoximine group efficiently transmits its stereochemical information to the product and functions as a traceless chiral auxiliary.

  4. Polymer- and Silica-Supported Iron BPMEN-Inspired Catalysts for C[BOND]H Bond Functionalization Reactions

    Dr. Yan Feng, Dr. Eric G. Moschetta and Prof. Christopher W. Jones

    Article first published online: 1 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402461

    Minor adjustments: Two approaches are presented to functionalize the popular N1,N2-dimethyl-N1,N2-bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)ethane-1,2-diamine (BPMEN) ligand, so that it can be supported on porous silica or polymer resin supports. Iron that complexes with this ligand can be used in an array of catalytic C[BOND]H functionalization reactions (see picture).

  5. Molecular Pop-up Toy: A Molecular Machine Based on Folding/Unfolding Motion of Alkyl Chains Bound to a Host

    Dr. Young Ho Ko, Dr. Ilha Hwang, Hyunuk Kim, Youngkook Kim and Prof. Dr. Kimoon Kim

    Article first published online: 29 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402988

    Alkyl chains in action! A new type of redox-driven molecular machine based on the reversible interconversion between a folded and an extended conformation of an alkyl chain has been designed and synthesized.
