The oxidative functionalization of the pharmaceutically important heterocycles containing oxidation-sensitive reaction centers (3H-pyrazol-3-ones, isoxazol-5(2H)-ones, pyrazolidine-3,5-diones, and barbituric acids) by malonyl peroxides results exclusively in C−O coupling products. The best results for the oxidative C−O coupling of heterocyclic compounds by malonyl peroxides are achieved in fluorinated alcohols as activating solvents.

Pyrolysis of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS)-based hybrid porous polymers (HPP), results in nitrogen-doped hierarchically porous carbons (N-HPC). HPP acts as a “dual template” after pyrolysis, bestowing the materials simultaneously with enhanced micro- and meso-porosity. After silica etching, N-HPC materials show to be catalytically active in the oxidative coupling of amines to imines using oxygen (1 bar) as the primary oxidant under neat conditions.

One stone two birds: By utilization the dual role of FeCl3 with oxidizability and chlorine source, the selective mono-chlorination of o-carboranes on B(9) and B(8) have been developed. The concept that FeCl3 only as a Lewis acid in promoting the electrophilic halogenation of carboranes has been changed.
- Structural and Magnetic Characterization of Two Tetranuclear Cu(II) Complexes with Closed-Cubane-Like Core Framework (pages 3317–3322)

Two novel tetranuclear closed-cubane like core framework Cu(II) complexes were synthesized, and characterized by crystal structure and magnetic analysis. Magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate an overall weak antiferromagnetic exchange coupling in one compound, while ferromagnetic exchange coupling in another compound. Observed magnetic properties of the complexes corroborate with their structural arrangement.
- Measuring Self-Association of Pt Complexes by 195Pt NMR (pages 3353–3355)

195Pt NMR was successfully used to quantify self-aggregation of neutral cyclometallated Pt(II) complexes in non-polar solvent. The method is not dependent on the ligand and can potentially be applied to any Pt(II) complexes.
