- Rhodium(I)-Catalyzed Intermolecular [2+2+2] Cycloaddition of Allenyl Aldehydes with Alkynes and Related Cyclization
Dr. Yoshihiro Oonishi, Dr. Akira Saito and Prof. Dr. Yoshihiro Sato
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201402239
Ring-a-ring o’ alkynes: Rhodium(I)-catalyzed cyclization of allenyl aldehydes with various alkynes was investigated. The cyclizations of internal alkynes that have both an electron-rich aromatic ring and an electron-withdrawing group at the terminus afforded [2+2+2] cycloaddition products while the reactions of terminal alkynes gave dienyl ketones instead of [2+2+2] cycloaddition products.
- Effect of Auxiliary Chromophores on the Optical, Electrochemical, and Photovoltaic Properties of Carbazole-Based Dyes
A. Venkateswararao, Dr. K. R. Justin Thomas, Dr. Chuan-Pei Lee and Prof. Kuo-Chuan Ho
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201402235
Organic dyes containing 2-diphenylaminocarbazole donors and auxiliary chromophores at the diphenylamine moiety have been synthesized and characterized. The nature of the chromophores on diphenylamine unit alters the light-harvesting properties and HOMO/LUMO energies of the dyes. A dye with fluorene in the donor unit and thiophene in the π-conjugation pathway is the most efficient and has the highest photocurrent density in the series.
- Efficient Catalysis of the Aerobic Baeyer–Villiger Oxidation over a Bifunctional Catalyst Based on Cobalt Tetraphenylporphyrin Intercalated into Zn2Al Hydrotalcite
Dr. Weiyou Zhou, Peng Tian, Fu'an Sun, Mingyang He and Zaixin Chen
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201402224
Sittin’ on the dock of the Baey: A bifunctional catalyst based on tetra(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphinato-cobalt(II) anion intercalated into Zn2Al hydrotalcite was designed, prepared, and applied in the Baeyer–Villiger oxidation with molecular oxygen. The hybrid not only catalyzes the oxidation of benzaldehyde to a peracid, but also accelerates the formation of esters from ketones and peracids.
