Recently Published Articles
- 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.
- Homogeneous Photocatalytic Reduction of CO2 to CO Using Iron(0) Porphyrin Catalysts: Mechanism and Intrinsic Limitations
Dr. Julien Bonin, Marie Chaussemier, Prof. Marc Robert and Dr. Mathilde Routier
Article first published online: 12 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402515
Catch CO2 if you can: A photochemical catalytic reduction of CO2 has been performed with iron(0) porphyrins as homogeneous catalysts under visible light irradiation, which gives CO as the main reduction product. A reduction mechanism is proposed with regards to the structure of the porphyrin.
- Nitro Promoters for Selectivity Control in the Core Hydrogenation of Toluidines: Controlling Adsorption on Catalyst Surfaces
Dr. Ewa Gebauer-Henke, Patrick Tomkins, Prof. Dr. Walter Leitner and Priv.-Doz. Dr. Thomas E. Müller
Article first published online: 12 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402493
Nitro boost: The use of nitro additives in the hydrogenation of amine-substituted aromatic rings leads to a step change in chemoselectivity and a significant increase in reaction rate. Thus, this reaction is one of the rare cases in which chemoselectivity increases with reaction rate. The diastereomer distribution of the products of para-, meta-, and ortho-toluidine hydrogenation provides additional molecular-level insight into the reaction pathways on the surface of ruthenium.
- The Transmetalation Process in Suzuki–Miyaura Reactions: Calculations Indicate Lower Barrier via Boronate Intermediate
Manuel A. Ortuño, Prof. Agustí Lledós, Prof. Feliu Maseras and Dr. Gregori Ujaque
Article first published online: 12 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402326
Computed reaction paths, combined theories: The transmetalation process in Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions is evaluated by means of DFT calculations on a realistic system. Computation indicates the implication of boronate species rather than palladium hydroxo intermediates. The results are able to combine the different proposals debated in the literature.
