  1. Geometrical Dependence of the Highest Occupied Molecular Orbital in Bicyclic Systems: π-Facial Stereoselectivity of Bicyclic and Tricyclic Olefins

    Motonori Tsuji

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500054

    Choosing sides: An interpretation of the stereochemical preference of electrophilic attacks of olefins in bicyclic and tricyclic systems is proposed. The selectivity of these systems is thought to be controlled by two types of HOMO, which are formed by a combination of different orbitals, depending on the geometrical conditions.

  2. Effective Synthesis of α-d-GlcN-(1[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]4)-d-GlcA/l-IdoA Glycosidic Linkage under Gold(I) Catalysis

    Dr. Jiakun Li, Yuanwei Dai, Dr. Wei Li, Dr. Stéphane Laval, Dr. Peng Xu and Prof. Dr. Biao Yu

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500113

    Gold rush: Direct glycosylations between 2-deoxy-2-azido-d-glucopyranosyl (d-GlcN) ortho-hexynylbenzoate donors and uronate acceptors (d-GlcA/l-IdoA) under gold(I) catalysis were performed in high yields with α selectivity, thus constituting an alternative method to construct the difficult α-d-GlcN-(1[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]4)-d-GlcA/l-IdoA glycosidic linkage occurring in heparin and heparan sulfate. PG=protecting group.

  3. Facile Synthesis and Phase Behaviors of Monofunctionalized Hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronenes

    Yu Zhou, Meng-Yao Zhang, Ke-Hua Gu, Yu-Feng Zhu, Xing-He Fan and Zhihao Shen

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500131

    The one and only: A method for synthesizing monofunctionalized hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronenes was developed by loading dialkyl-diphenylacetylenes and asymmetric diphenylacetylene derivatives at the same time catalyzed by [Co2(CO)8].

  4. Copper-Catalyzed β-Selective Hydroborylation of Ynamides: A Facile Access to (E)-β-Alkenylamide Boronates

    Prof. Dr. Yihui Bai, Fang Zhang, Jiajia Shen, Fang Luo and Prof. Dr. Gangguo Zhu

    Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500119

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    On the beta: A Cu-catalyzed, highly β-selective hydroboration of ynamides with bis(pinacolato)diboron as the hydroboration reagent is reported, providing a good complementary regioselectivity to the existing methods.
