Dual Vacancies Confined in Nickel Phosphosulfide Nanosheets Enabling Robust Overall Water Splitting

Published: 17 May 2021

Author(s): Yun Tong, Pengzuo Chen, Lu Chen, Xinjiang Cui

Abstract Exploring highly efficient electrocatalysts for both the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is of great significance for addressing energy and environmental crises. Vacancy engineering has been regarded as a promising way to optimize the catalytic activity of electrocatalysts. Herein, we put forward a conceptually new dual Ni,S vacancy engineering on 2D NiPS3 nanosheet (denoted as V−NiPS3) by a simple ball‐milling treatment with ultrasonication....

Tandem Synthesis of ϵ‐Caprolactam from Cyclohexanone by an Acidified Metal‐organic Framework

Published: 17 May 2021

Author(s): Wenyu Huang, Xun Wu, Minda Chen, Yuchen Pei, Andrew Cruz, Tianqing Liu, Jingwen Chen, Xinle Li, Biying Zhang

Abstract Tandem synthesis of ϵ‐caprolactam, one of the largest scaled commercial chemicals, is highly desired from the viewpoint of cost, energy, and environment. However, relevant studies have remained largely underexplored. By using a one‐pot strategy, we encapsulated phosphotungstic acid (PTA) into a chromium terephthalate metal‐organic framework (MOF), MIL‐101, for the efficient tandem conversion of cyclohexanone to ϵ‐caprolactam. The highly dispersed PTA in the MOF matrix showed a high...

Efficient Synthesis of Cyclohexanol and Ethanol via the Hydrogenation of Acetic Acid‐Derived Cyclohexyl Acetate with the CuxAl1Mn2−x Catalysts

Published: 17 May 2021

Author(s): Tongyang Song, Wei Chen, Yuanyuan Qi, Peng Wu, Zhirong Zhu, Xiaohong Li

Abstract The hydrogenation of cyclohexyl acetate (CHA), derived from the esterification of acetic acid and cyclohexene, not only alleviates the overcapacity of acetic acid, but also produces value‐added cyclohexanol (CHOL) and ethanol at a low cost. Herein, we prepared Cu1Al1, Cu1Mn1 and CuxAl1Mn2−x catalysts via a deposition‐precipitation method for the hydrogenation of CHA to CHOL and ethanol. As a result, the ternary CuxAl1Mn2−x catalysts exhibited superior behaviors to Cu1Al1 and Cu1Mn1....

Functional Nucleic Acids Under Unusual Conditions

Published: 17 May 2021

Author(s): Tianjun Chang, Sisi He, Ryan Amini, Yingfu Li

Abstract Functional nucleic acids (FNAs), including naturally occurring ribozymes and riboswitches as well as artificially created DNAzymes and aptamers, have been popular molecular toolboxes for diverse applications. Given the high chemical stability of nucleic acids and their ability to fold into diverse sequence‐dependent structures, FNAs are suggested to be highly functional under unusual reaction conditions. This review will examine the progress of research on FNAs under conditions of low...

Highly Efficient All‐Polymer Solar Cells Processed from Nonhalogenated Solvents

Published: 17 May 2021

Author(s): Zuojia Li, Kui Feng, Jingwei Wang, Min Li, Qianqian Xu, Xiaochang Li, Xugang Guo

Abstract The remarkable advance of all‐polymer solar cells (all‐PSCs) achieved in the past decades is primarily powered by the innovation of polymer acceptors. However, most of high‐performance all‐PSCs are dominantly fabricated with halogenated solvents, which are detrimental to human bodies and the environment. Herein, eco‐friendly solvent‐processed all‐PSCs were developed, based on wide‐bandgap polymer...

Identification of Active Sites in the Catalytic Oxidation of 2‐Propanol over Co1+xFe2–xO4 Spinel Oxides at Solid/Liquid and Solid/Gas Interfaces

Published: 17 May 2021

Author(s): Tobias Falk, Eko Budiyanto, Maik Dreyer, Christin Pflieger, Daniel Waffel, Julia Büker, Claudia Weidenthaler, Klaus Friedel Ortega, Malte Behrens, Harun Tüysüz, Martin Muhler, Baoxiang Peng

Abstract A series of Co1+xFe2–xO4 (0≤x≤2) spinel nanowires was synthesized by nanocasting using SBA‐15 silica as hard template, which was characterized by X‐ray powder diffraction, X‐ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. The Co1+xFe2–xO4 spinels were applied in the aerobic oxidation of aqueous 2‐propanol solutions to systematically study the influence of exposed Co and Fe cations on the catalytic properties. The activity of the catalysts was found to depend...

Synthesis of Gold(I)−Trifluoromethyl Complexes and their Role in Generating Spectroscopic Evidence for a Gold(I)−Difluorocarbene Species

Published: 14 May 2021

Author(s): Sofie M. P. Vanden Broeck, David J. Nelson, Alba Collado, Laura Falivene, Luigi Cavallo, David B. Cordes, Alexandra M. Z. Slawin, Kristof Van Hecke, Fady Nahra, Catherine S. J. Cazin, Steven P. Nolan

Abstract Readily prepared and bench‐stable [Au(CF3)(NHC)] compounds were synthesized by using new methods, starting from [Au(OH)(NHC)], [Au(Cl)(NHC)] or [Au(L)(NHC)]HF2 precursors (NHC=N‐heterocyclic carbene). The mechanism of formation of these species was investigated. Consequently, a new and straightforward strategy for the mild and selective cleavage of a single carbon/fluorine bond from [Au(CF3)(NHC)] complexes was attempted and found to be reversible in the presence of an additional...

A Cyclometalated IrIII Complex Conjugated to a Coumarin Derivative Is a Potent Photodynamic Agent against Prostate Differentiated and Tumorigenic Cancer Stem Cells

Published: 14 May 2021

Author(s): Vojtech Novohradsky, Lenka Markova, Hana Kostrhunova, Jana Kasparkova, José Ruiz, Vicente Marchán, Viktor Brabec

Abstract A cyclometalated IrIII complex conjugated to a far‐red‐emitting coumarin, IrIII‐COUPY (3), was recently shown as a very promising photosensitizer suitable for photodynamic therapy of cancer. Therefore, the primary goal of this work was to deepen knowledge on the mechanism of its photoactivated antitumor action so that this information could be used to propose a new class of compounds as drug candidates for curing very hardly treatable human tumors, such as androgen resistant prostatic...

1,2‐Carbopentafluorophenylation of Alkynes: The Metallomimetic Pull‐Push Reactivity of Tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane

Published: 14 May 2021

Author(s): Masatoshi Shibuya, Miki Matsuda, Yoshihiko Yamamoto

Abstract We report the novel single‐step 1,2‐dicarbofunctionalization of an arylacetylene with an allylsilane and tris(pentafluorophenyl)borane [B(C6F5)3] involving C−C bond formation with C−H bond scission at the β‐position to the silicon atom of an allylsilane and B→C migration of a C6F5 group. The 1,2‐carbopentafluorophenylation occurs smoothly without the requirement for a catalyst or heating. Mechanistic studies suggest that the metallomimetic “pull‐push” reactivity of B(C6F5)3 imparts...
