  1. Efficient Synthesis of Frutinone A and Its Derivatives through Palladium-Catalyzed C[BOND]H Activation/Carbonylation

    Yongje Shin, Changho Yoo, Youngtaek Moon, Prof. Yunho Lee and Prof. Sungwoo Hong

    Article first published online: 22 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402876

    Bearing frutinone: A three-step total synthesis of frutinone A (see scheme) with an overall yield of 44 % is presented. The construction of the chromone-annelated coumarin core was achieved through palladium-catalyzed C[BOND]H carbonylation of 2-phenolchromones. The straightforward synthetic route allowed facile substitutions around the frutinone A core and thus rapid exploration of the structure–activity relationship profile of the derivatives.

  2. NiII Metalations of [40]- and [42]Nonaphyrins( The Largest Doubly Twisted Hückel Antiaromatic Molecule

    Takanori Soya, Koji Naoda and Prof. Dr. Atsuhiro Osuka

    Article first published online: 22 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402933

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Twisted antiaromaticity: A nonaphyrin mono-NiII complex shows doubly twisted 42π Hückel aromaticity and its subsequent RhI metalation afforded a NiII-RhI hybrid complex with similar doubly twisted 42π Hückel aromaticity. Oxidation of the hybrid complex gave an 40π NiII-RhI complex, which displays the largest doubly twisted 40π Hückel antiaromaticity to date.

  3. Rewritable Multilevel Memory Performance of a Tetraazatetracene Donor–Acceptor Derivative with Good Endurance

    Chengyuan Wang, Dr. Benlin Hu, Jiangxin Wang, Dr. Junkuo Gao, Gang Li, Dr. Wei-Wei Xiong, Binghua Zou, Prof. Dr. Mitsuharu Suzuki, Prof. Dr. Naoki Aratani, Prof. Dr. Hiroko Yamada, Prof. Dr. Fengwei Huo, Prof. Dr. Pooi See Lee and Prof. Dr. Qichun Zhang

    Remembering states: A tetraazatetracene derivative, 2,3-[4,4′-bis(N,N-diphenylamino)benzyl]-5,12-bis[(triisopropylsilyl)ethynyl]-1,4,6,11-tetraazatetracene (TPAs-BTTT), displays rewritable multilevel memory behavior, which is probably induced by multielectron intramolecular charge transfer (see figure).

  4. Self-Assembled Platinum Nanoflowers on Polydopamine-Coated Reduced Graphene Oxide for Methanol Oxidation and Oxygen Reduction Reactions

    Xueqing Yu, Huan Wang, Prof. Liping Guo and Prof. Liang Wang

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402883

    Platinum in bloom! Self-assembled Pt nanoflowers on polydopamine-coated reduced graphene oxide are fabricated in a facile and efficient synthesis, and are a promising electrocatalyst for methanol oxidation and oxygen reduction reactions.

  5. o-Fluorination of Aromatic Azides Yields Improved Azido-Based Fluorescent Probes for Hydrogen Sulfide: Synthesis, Spectra, and Bioimaging

    Chao Wei , Runyu Wang , Dr. Lv Wei , Longhuai Cheng , Zhifei Li, Prof. Dr. Zhen Xi  and Prof. Dr. Long Yi 

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402808

    Just add fluorine! On the basis of introducing fluoro substituents into the ortho position of aromatic azides, which more than doubles their rate of reaction with H2S, new BODIPY-based fluorescent probes were developed for real-time bioimaging of H2S. These probes can be used for in situ visualization of D-cysteine-dependent endogenously produced H2S in living cells (see figure).
