ChemPlusChem 7/2017: Novel Aromatics Special Issue

ChemPlusChem 7/2017: Novel Aromatics Special Issue

Particular highlights in this issue, which was guest-edited by Nazario Martín and Yoshito Tobe, are outstanding Communications by S. Hecht and K. Müllen, Minireviews on anthracene--acetylene frameworks by S. Toyota and on applications of azulene in organic optoelectronic materials by X. Gao. The Review by R. Tykwinski on reductive aromatization/dearomatization and elimination for the synthesis of conjugated polycyclic molecules promises to become a classic in the field.

This issue is free to view in July and August!

    Completing circuits: Conjugated polycyclic molecules play a central role in most functional organic materials. Established routes to these valuable compounds rely on reductive aromatization, dearomatization, and elimination reactions which are reviewed (see figure).

  3. Acid-Functionalised Magnetic Ionic Liquid [AcMIm]FeCl4 as Catalyst for Oxidative Hydroxylation of Arylboronic Acids and Regioselective Friedel–Crafts Acylation

    Arijit Saha, Soumen Payra, Dr. Dipa Dutta and Dr. Subhash Banerjee

    Version of Record online: 17 JUL 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700221

    Attractive separation: The facile oxidative hydroxylation of arylboronic acids and regioselective Friedel–Crafts (F–C; see scheme) acylation of phenols is demonstrated by using an acid-functionalized magnetic ionic liquid (MAIL), 1-acyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrachloroferrate ([AcMIm]FeCl4), as a catalyst and reaction medium.

  4. Facile Synthesis of a Porous Pd/Cu Alloy and its Enhanced Performance toward Methanol and Formic Acid Electrooxidation

    Bo Yan, Caiqin Wang, Hui Xu, Ke Zhang, Shumin Li and Prof. Yukou Du

    Version of Record online: 17 JUL 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700245

    Shape-controlled porous Pd/Cu alloy catalysts have been synthesized by a one-pot method, in which the Pd/Cu alloy was formed using l-ascorbic acid as the reducing agent to simultaneously reduce the copper precursor and the palladium precursor (see figure). Electrochemical characterizations show that the Pd/Cu alloy catalysts possess good activity and long-term stability for the electrooxidation of methanol and formic acid compared with commercial Pd/C.

  5. Photo-Switchable Self-Assemblies Based on Thymine-Containing Bolaamphiphiles

    Ahmed S. Al-Shereiqi, Prof. Ben J. Boyd and Dr. Kei Saito

    Version of Record online: 4 JUL 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700207

    A trick of the light: Thymine-incorporating bolaamphiphiles were designed and synthesised to produce photo-switchable self-assembling structures. They formed ribbon-like and spherical structures upon exposure to UV light of different wavelengths (see figure).
