The following papers are very important in the opinion of two referees.
An Enantioselective Assembly of Dihydropyranones through an NHC/LiCl-Mediated in situ Activation of α,β-Unsaturated Carboxylic Acids
Yonglei Que, Yinan Lu, Wenjing Wang, Yuhong Wang, Haotian Wang, Chenxia Yu, Tuanjie Li, Xiang-Shan Wang, Shide Shen and Changsheng Yao
Face like a pyranone: A straightforward N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC)/LiCl-mediated synthesis of dihydropyranones from α,β-unsaturated carboxylic acids and 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds was realized through an in situ activation strategy. The key advantages of this protocol include ready availability and high stability of starting materials, good yields, and excellent enantioselectivity.
Remote C−H Activation of Quinolines through Copper-Catalyzed Radical Cross-Coupling
Dr. Jun Xu, Dr. Chao Shen, Dr. Xiaolei Zhu, Prof. Pengfei Zhang, Dr. Manjaly J. Ajitha, Prof. Kuo-Wei Huang, Dr. Zhongfu An and Prof. Xiaogang Liu
A route to remote C−H activation: The sulfonylation of quinolines has been readily achieved through a Cu-catalyzed remote C−S cross coupling reaction without the need for organohalide precursors.
Photoinduced Processes of Supramolecular Nanoarrays Composed of Porphyrin and Benzo[ghi]perylenetriimide Units through Triple Hydrogen Bonds with One-Dimensional Columnar Phases
Dr. Hayato Sakai, Prof. Kei Ohkubo, Prof. Shunichi Fukuzumi and Prof. Taku Hasobe
I think it′s just a phase: One-dimensional supramolecular columnar phases composed of porphyrins and benzo[ghi]perylenetriimides through triple hydrogen bonds for photoinduced electron transfer have been successfully prepared.
Free-Standing Membranes to Study the Optical Properties of Anodic TiO2 Nanotube Layers
Gihoon Cha, Prof. Dr. Patrik Schmuki and Dr. Marco Altomare
Standing still: Anodic TiO2 nanotubes layers are transferred as self-standing membranes onto quartz substrates and are characterized in view of their optical features by light transmission and reflectance measurements. A series of wavelength-dependent light absorption coefficients are determined that can be used to assess how the incident light is attenuated as it passes through anatase TiO2 nanotube layers.
