  1. Determining the Effect of Plasma Pre-Treatment on Antimony Tin Oxide to Support Pt@Pd and the Oxygen Reduction Reaction Activity

    Dr. Xiaoteng Liu, Dr. Kui Zhang, Jianwei Lu, Prof. Kun Luo, Prof. Jinlong Gong, Dr. Vinod K. Puthiyapura and Prof. Keith Scott

    Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500206

    A catalyst spread far and wide: The effect of plasma pre-treatment on antimony tin oxide (ATO) nanoparticles is to allow homogeneous dispersion of Pt@Pd over the support with a narrow particle size distribution. These factors combine for a dramatic improvement towards ORR activity and durability.

  2. Synthesis of Diaryl Sulfones at Room Temperature: Cu-Catalyzed Cross-Coupling of Arylsulfonyl Chlorides with Arylboronic Acids

    Dr. Feng Hu and Prof. Dr. Xiangyang Lei

    Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500174

    Stitch it up with copper: An efficient and convenient method for the synthesis of diaryl sulfones was developed through the Cu-catalyzed cross- couplings of arylsulfonyl chlorides and arylboronic acids at room temperature in open air.

  3. Synthesis of Biaryls by Decarboxylative Hiyama Coupling

    Dr. Dmitry Katayev, Benjamin Exner and Prof. Dr. Lukas J. Gooßen

    Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500068

    Three metals are better than one: A trimetallic Pd/Cu/Ag system allows the decarboxylative Hiyama coupling of ortho-substituted aryl carboxylates with trialkoxyarylsilanes in high yields. A Pd/N-heterocyclic carbene complex catalyzes the cross-coupling reaction with silver carbonate supporting reoxidation of the complex. Copper(II) fluoride acts as decarboxylaton catalyst, stoichiometric oxidant, and fluoride source, necessary to activate organosilanes. DMAc=Dimethylacetamide.

  4. Asymmetric Nickel-Catalysed Cross-Hydrovinylation of Two Terminal Alkenes

    Prof. Dr. Gerhard Hilt

    Article first published online: 20 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500177

    Pushing the boundaries: The asymmetric 1,2-hydrovinylation of styrene derivatives with terminal alkenes is realised by using a nickel catalyst and specially designed chiral NHC ligands to achieve a new level of complexity for the tail-to-tail cross-coupling of alkenes by C[BOND]H activation.

  5. Ruthenium-Catalyzed Ortho-Selective Aromatic C[BOND]H Borylation of 2-Arylpyridines with Pinacolborane

    Shinsuke Okada, Dr. Takeshi Namikoshi, Prof. Dr. Shinji Watanabe and Prof. Dr. Miki Murata

    Article first published online: 20 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201500110

    A ruthenium for C[BOND]H borylation: The ruthenium-catalyzed dehydrogenative borylation of 2-arylpyridines with pinacolborane took place at ortho-positions of the benzene ring.
