Confirming the conformation: The synthesis, characterization, and evaluation of a new highly efficient imidazolidinone organocatalyst is achieved. The catalyst is investigated in enantioselective Diels–Alder reactions, and a conformation study confirms the approach on the less hindered Si face. [mPy][OTf]=Methylpyridinium triflate.
- Iridium(III)-Catalyzed Benzylic Amine Directed CH Sulfonamidation of Arenes with Sulfonyl Azides

Iridium glides into the azides: The development of a benzylic amine directed ortho-sulfonamidation of aryl CH bonds with sulfonyl azides is detailed. We show that the combination of a commercially available iridium(III) complex with a silver salt gives rise to an active manifold for promoting efficient CN bond formation for a variety of substrates. Cp*=C5Me5, Tf=SO2CF3, DCE=1,2-dichloroethane.
- Enhanced Basicity of Ag2O by Coordination to Soft Anions

All your base belongs to us: In Ag2O-mediated benzylation, the addition of a catalytic amount of KI can greatly improve reactivity. Our studies show this to be attributable to the enhanced basicity of Ag2O through coordination of soft iodide anions to the silver atom, and show KI to be an initiator. Thus, NaBr as an initiator combined with Ag2O has been successfully used to catalyze transesterification reactions.
- Cu-Decorated Ru Catalysts Supported on Layered Double Hydroxides for Selective Benzene Hydrogenation to Cyclohexene
Jie Liu, Simin Xu, Weihan Bing, Fei Wang, Dr. Changming Li, Prof. Min Wei, Prof. David G. Evans and Prof. Xue Duan
Article first published online: 28 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402895
Selective hydrogenation: Cu-decorated Ru catalysts supported on hierarchical MgAl-LDH (LDH=layered double hydroxide) were fabricated by a facile two-step procedure and exhibit a superior selectivity for hydrogenation of benzene to cyclohexene without employment of any additives. CO-TPD (TPD=temperature-programmed desorption) and in situ CO-FTIR results demonstrate that Cu atoms occupy the low-coordinated Ru active sites, which possess a high adsorption energy for cyclohexene as revealed by DFT calculations.
- Binder Effects in SiO2- and Al2O3-Bound Zeolite ZSM-5-Based Extrudates as Studied by Microspectroscopy
Dr. Gareth T. Whiting, Dr. Florian Meirer, Dr. Machteld M. Mertens, Dr. Anton-Jan Bons, Dr. Brian M. Weiss, Dr. Paul A. Stevens, Dr. Emiel de Smit and Prof. Bert M. Weckhuysen

Taking a shine to extrudates: Non-invasive microspectroscopic techniques are used in situ to investigate binder effects that occur in zeolite-based millimeter-sized extrudates. The type of binder present is found to have a significant role in determining oligomer selectivity during the thiophene oligomerization reaction.
