    From achiral to spiral: A system containing a chiral Ru complex and a Brønsted acid catalyzes the dehydrative intramolecular allylation of simple cyclic ketones to construct chiral spirocyclic compounds under acidic conditions, unlike traditional Tsuji–Trost chemistry. Racemic allylic alcohols comprising a ketone cyclize without stoichiometric activation of the C=O and OH groups. Among four possible stereoisomers, only one stereoisomer is obtained selectively, in high yield and enantioselectivity.

  2. Reductive Homocoupling of Organohalides Using Nickel(II) Chloride and Samarium Metal

    Prof. Dr. Yongjun Liu, Shuhuan Xiao, Yan Qi and Dr. Feng Du

    A homocoupling method for organohalides and organosulfonates promoted by samarium metal and HMPA, and catalyzed by NiCl2 has been developed. Excellent chemoselectivity was exhibited between halides and −COOH, −NO2, halogen, heterocyclic rings, esters, and ketone groups. The stereoselectivity suggested that the reaction mechanism might involve an organosamarium species.
