  1. Tridentate Complexes of Palladium(II) and Platinum(II) Bearing bis-Aryloxide Triazole Ligands: A Joint Experimental and Theoretical Investigation

    Dr. Georges Dahm, Dr. Etienne Borré, Changkan Fu, Dr. Stéphane Bellemin-Laponnaz and Dr. Matteo Mauro

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500600

    New palladium and platinum complexes bearing tridentate bis-aryloxide triazole ligands were synthesized and fully characterized. The platinum derivatives displayed photophysical properties dependent on the substituents present on the tridentate ligand.

  2. Synthesis of Uniform, Monodisperse, Sophorolipid Twisted Ribbons

    Anne-Sophie Cuvier, Dr. Florence Babonneau, Jan Berton, Prof. Christian V. Stevens, Dr. Giulia C. Fadda, Isabelle Genois, Patrick Le Griel, Gérard Péhau-Arnaudet and Dr. Niki Baccile

    Lets twist again: The acidic form of saturated sophorolipids can form in water, at pH 7, self-assembled twisted ribbons, the cross-sectional monodispersity of which (13.0±1.5 nm) can easily be controlled by removing NaCl from the parent colloidal suspension using a simple dialysis step, as shown by a combination of small angle neutron scattering and cryo-TEM.

  3. A Simple and Fast Aqueous-Phase Synthesis of Ultra-Highly Concentrated Silver Nanoparticles and Their Catalytic Properties

    Aasim Shahzad, Prof. Dr. Minsub Chung, Prof. Dr. Taekyung Yu and Prof. Dr. Woo-Sik Kim

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500672

    Tightly packed: A simple and fast synthetic route to ultra-highly concentrated silver nanoparticles with long-term stability was developed in an aqueous phase. After successful ligand exchange, polyethyleneimine (PEI)-stabilized silver nanoparticles exhibited greater stability than that of polyethylene glycol (PEG)- and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)-stabilized silver nanoparticles in diffusion-controlled catalytic (left vial=highly concentrated (500 mM) and right vial=5000 times diluted suspensions of Ag NPs).

  4. Diversified Synthesis of Furans by Coupling between Enols/1,3-Dicarbonyl Compounds and Nitroolefins: Direct Access to Dioxa[5]helicenes

    Monoranjan Ghosh, Dr. Sougata Santra, Dr. Pallab Mondal, Dr. Dhiman Kundu and Dr. Alakananda Hajra

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500710

    An eye furan eye: The K2CO3-promoted cyclization between enols/1,3-dicarbonyl compounds and nitroolefins was successfully applied to the synthesis of benzotrifuran derivatives, which are useful hole-transporting materials and dioxa[5]helicenes.

  5. A Novel Allyl Transfer Coupled with a Grob Fragmentation

    Dr. Shao-Gang Li, Dr. Hui-Jun Chen, Yang-Yang Yang, Wen-Ju Wu and Prof. Dr. Yikang Wu

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500728

    Grob a transfer? An acid-promoted rearrangement has been demonstrated, in which an allyl group migrated to an in situ formed carbocation stabilized by an aryl or heteroaryl group; an electron-rich aryl or heteroaryl group was proven essential for the occurrence of the rearrangement. If the Ar was a simple/unsubstituted phenyl, treatment with pTsOH led to cleavage of the TBS protecting group as expected.
