Recently Published Articles
- Benzyl Alcohol Oxidation on Carbon-Supported Pd Nanoparticles: Elucidating the Reaction Mechanism
Dr. Aditya Savara, Dr. Carine E. Chan-Thaw, Dr. Ilenia Rossetti, Dr. Alberto Villa and Prof. Laura Prati
Article first published online: 16 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402552
Two key intermediates are involved in the catalytic liquid-phase oxidation of benzyl alcohol. An alkoxy intermediate is proposed for the route to benzyl aldehyde, toluene, and benzyl ether. A carbonyloxyl intermediate is proposed for the route to benzoic acid, benzene, and benzyl benzoate.
- One-Step Approach to 2,5-Diformylfuran from Fructose by Proton- and Vanadium-Containing Graphitic Carbon Nitride
Prof. Dr. Jinzhu Chen, Yuanyuan Guo, Jiayi Chen, Lu Song and Dr. Limin Chen

Bypass operation: A combination of protonated graphitic carbon nitride [g-C3N4(H+)] and vanadium-doped g-C3N4 (V–g-C3N4) successfully affords direct synthesis of 2,5-diformylfuran (DFF) from fructose in a one-pot reaction. Moreover, a bifunctional catalyst made of protonated V–g-C3N4 [V–g-C3N4(H+)] allows one-pot as well as one-step direct transformation of fructose into DFF.
- Rhodium-Catalyzed Decarbonylative Direct C2-Arylation of Indoles with Aryl Carboxylic Acids
Lingjuan Zhang, Xiao Xue, Conghui Xu, Yixiao Pan, Guang Zhang, Prof. Lijin Xu, Prof. Huanrong Li and Prof. Zhangjie Shi
Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402534
The long and winding rhodium: RhI-catalyzed direct C2-arylation of indoles with diversely substituted aryl carboxylic acids is developed using the 2-pyrimidyl group as an easily installable and readily removable N-directing group. The reaction proceeds smoothly without the need for external oxidants under relatively mild conditions to produce C2-arylated indoles exclusively. A range of functional groups in both coupling partners are tolerated.
- Efficient Hydrogenation of Alkyl Formate to Methanol over Nanocomposite Copper/Alumina Catalysts
Dr. Xian-Long Du, Xue-Ping Sun, Dr. Chan Jin, Prof. Zheng Jiang, Prof. Dang Sheng Su and Prof. Jian-Qiang Wang
Article first published online: 12 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402560
Reducing the odds: The efficient hydrogenation of CO2-derived methyl formate (MF) is achieved over a highly robust catalyst system consisting of copper nanoparticles supported on alumina under solvent-free conditions. A range of other formate esters, including ethyl formate, propyl formate, and butyl formate, can be converted into methanol in high yields.
- Selective CH Bond Functionalization of 2-(2-Thienyl)pyridine by a Rhodium N-Heterocyclic Carbene Catalyst
Dr. Laura Rubio-Pérez, Dr. Manuel Iglesias, Dr. Ricardo Castarlenas, Dr. Victor Polo, Prof. Jesús J. Pérez-Torrente and Prof. Luis A. Oro
Article first published online: 12 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402507
For your CH bond only: [Rh(μ-Cl)(H)2(IPr)]2 (IPr=1,3-bis-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene) catalyzes the selective functionalization of 2-(2-thienyl)pyridine efficiently with a range of alkenes and internal alkynes. A catalytic cycle is proposed on the basis of the identification of key reaction intermediates and the study of their reactivity by NMR spectroscopy.
