  1. Copper-Catalyzed Radical Carbooxygenation: Alkylation and Alkoxylation of Styrenes

    Zhixiong Liao, Hong Yi, Zheng Li, Chao Fan, Xu Zhang, Jie Liu, Prof. Dr. Zixin Deng and Prof. Dr. Aiwen Lei

    Article first published online: 29 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403097

    Come on styrene: A simple copper-catalyzed direct carbooxygenation of styrenes has been developed using alkyl bromides as radical resources. This catalytic radical difunctionalization accomplishes both alkylation and alkoxylation of styrenes in one pot. A broad range of styrenes and alcohols are well tolerated.

  2. Unique Fluorogenic Ratiometric Fluorescent Chemodosimeter for Rapid Sensing of CN in Water

    Dr. Ajit Kumar Mahapatra, Kalipada Maiti, Saikat Kumar Manna, Rajkishor Maji, Chitrangada Das Mukhopadhyay, Bholanath Pakhira and Prof. Sabyasachi Sarkar

    Article first published online: 27 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402923

    Sense and Sensitivity: A new benzimidazole-spiropyran conjugate chemosensor molecule (BISP) was synthesized and characterized. The two isomeric forms (BISP[LEFT RIGHT ARROW]BIMC) were shown to be highly selective and sensitive to CN in aqueous HEPES buffer, with a detection limit of 1.7 μM for BIMC.

  3. Toward Chemistry-Based Design of the Simplest Metalloenzyme-Like Catalyst That Works Efficiently in Water

    Taku Kitanosono and Prof. Dr. Shū Kobayashi

    Article first published online: 27 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403004

    Water Music: We have designed the simplest metalloenzyme-like catalyst system model that can function in water, without any aid from an enzymatic structure itself. By compaction and precise orchestration of essential functions, this artificial system efficiently catalyzed enantioselective direct-type aldol reactions using aqueous formaldehyde.

  4. Why p-Cymene? Conformational Effect in Asymmetric Hydrogenation of Aromatic Ketones with a η6-Arene/Ruthenium(II) Catalyst

    Aki Matsuoka, Dr. Christian A. Sandoval, Prof. Dr. Masanobu Uchiyama, Prof. Dr. Ryoji Noyori and Prof. Dr. Hiroshi Naka

    Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402979

    Think global: Global reaction route mapping (GRRM) methods conveniently define transition states in asymmetric hydrogenation and transfer hydrogenation of aromatic ketones via the [RuH{(S,S)-TsNCH(C6H5)CH(C6H5)NH2}(η6-p-cymene)] intermediate. Multiple electrostatic CH/π interactions are the common motif in the preferred diastereometric structures.

  5. Polyoxometalate-Based Entangled Coordination Networks Induced by an Extended Bis(triazole) Ligand

    Dr. Xiu-Li Hao, Yuan-Yuan Ma, Wen-Zhe Zhou, Dr. Hong-Ying Zang, Dr. Yong-Hui Wang and Prof. Yang-Guang Li

    Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402958

    Creating a new kind of network: The hydrothermal reaction system containing transition metal ions, 4,4′-bis(1,2,4-triazol-1-ylmethyl)biphenyl (BBPTZ), and Keggin-type polyoxometalates (POMs) led to the preparation of new POM-based coordination networks with entangled and porous structural features. The compounds exhibit a good stability and photocatalytic activity towards MB degradation under irradiation with UV light.
