  1. Asymmetric Organocatalyzed Epoxidation of 2-Oxoindoline-3-ylidene Acetaldehydes

    Takasuke Mukaiyama, Kento Ogata, Tsuyoshi Ono and Prof. Yujiro Hayashi

    Article first published online: 24 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402811

    Giving metal catalysis the slip: The asymmetric epoxidation of 2-oxoindoline-3-ylidene acetaldehydes with hydrogen peroxide, catalyzed by diarylprolinol silyl ether, has been developed. Good to excellent diastereo- and enantioselectivities were realized even though the starting material 2-oxoindoline-3-ylidene acetaldehydes pre-existed as a mixture of E/Z-isomers.

  2. A New Role for Sulfenate Anions: Organocatalysis

    Prof. Dr. Adrian L. Schwan

    Article first published online: 24 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402817

    Introducing…Sulfenate! The sulfenate anion is introduced for the first time as a catalyst and was found to facilitate the conversion of benzyl halides to trans-stilbenes. CPME=Cyclopentyl methyl ether.

  3. Recycling Powered by Release of Carbon Dioxide

    Anna Laurell Nash, Dr. Khalid Widyan and Prof. Christina Moberg

    Article first published online: 19 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402765

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A carbon dioxide tap: In a cyclic process, fed with external chemical energy generated by the transformation of a compound with high chemical potential to carbon dioxide, the undesired enantiomer from a catalytic asymmetric reaction is continuously recycled to the starting reagent. This minor enantiomer recycling is characterized by gradually increasing yields and product enantiomeric ratios.

  4. Robust, Efficient, and Recyclable Catalysts from the Impregnation of Preformed Dendrimers Containing Palladium Nanoparticles on a Magnetic Support

    Christophe Deraedt, Dr. Dong Wang, Dr. Lionel Salmon, Laetitia Etienne, Christine Labrugère, Dr. Jaime Ruiz and Prof. Didier Astruc

    Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402775

    All dendrimers on deck: The simple impregnation of γ-Fe2O3(core)/SiO2(shell) magnetic nanoparticles with a dendrimer that contains stabilized Pd nanoparticles is a new method to produce a highly efficient heterogeneous catalyst, which provides much better stability, recyclability, and activity in C[BOND]C cross- coupling reactions and selective oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde in water than unsupported Pd nanoparticles.

  5. Niobium-Based Nickel–Tungsten Hydrotreatment Catalysts with Enhanced Isomerization Properties

    Dr. Karolina Bouadjadja-Rohan, Dr. Audrey Bonduelle-Skrzypczak, Dr. Antoine Hugon, Prof. Michel Fournier, Carole Lamonier and Dr. Christine Lancelot

    Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402777

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A balancing act: The presence of niobium leads to a highly improved performance of nickel–tungsten-based catalysts for the isomerization of cyclohexane (CC6). Importantly, the hydrogenation activity is preserved at high nickel–tungsten ratio and tungsten content.
