π–π Catalysis in Carbon Flatland—Flipping [8]Annulene on Graphene

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Asja A. Kroeger, Amir Karton

Abstract Noncovalent interactions are an integral part of the modern catalysis toolbox. Although stronger noncovalent interactions such as hydrogen bonding are commonly the main driving force of catalysis, π–π interactions typically provide smaller additional stabilizations, for example, to afford selectivity enhancements. Here, it is shown computationally that pristine graphene flakes may efficiently catalyze the skeletal inversions of various benzannulated cyclooctatetraene derivatives,...

Visible‐Light‐Induced Synthesis of 1,2,3,4‐Tetrahydroquinolines through Formal [4+2] Cycloaddition of Acyclic α,β‐Unsaturated Amides and Imides with N,N‐Dialkylanilines

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Kennosuke Itoh, Shun‐ichi Nagao, Ken Tokunaga, Shigeto Hirayama, Fumika Karaki, Takaaki Mizuguchi, Kenichiro Nagai, Noriko Sato, Mitsuaki Suzuki, Masashi Hashimoto, Hideaki Fujii

Abstract 1,2,3,4‐Tetrahydroquinolines should be applicable to the development of new pharmaceutical agents. A facile synthesis of 1,2,3,4‐tetrahydroquinolines that is achieved by a photoinduced formal [4+2] cycloaddition reaction of acyclic α,β‐unsaturated amides and imides with N,N‐dialkylanilines under visible‐light irradiation, in which a new IrIII complex photosensitizer, a thiourea, and an oxidant act cooperatively in promoting the reaction, is reported. The photoreaction enables the...

Multi‐Step Continuous‐Flow Organic Synthesis: Opportunities and Challenges

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Jiao Jiao, Wenzheng Nie, Tao Yu, Fan Yang, Qian Zhang, Feierdaiweisi Aihemaiti, Tingjun Yang, Xuanyu Liu, Jiachen Wang, Pengfei Li

Abstract Continuous‐flow multi‐step synthesis takes the advantages of microchannel flow chemistry and may transform the conventional multi‐step organic synthesis by using integrated synthetic systems. To realize the goal, however, innovative chemical methods and techniques are urgently required to meet the significant remaining challenges. In the past few years, by using green reactions, telescoped chemical design, and/or novel in‐line separation techniques, major and rapid advancement has...

Enthalpically and Entropically Favorable Self‐Assembly: Synthesis of C4h‐Symmetric Tetraazatetrathia[8]circulenes by Regioselective Introduction of Pyridine Rings

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Shuhei Akahori, Takahiro Sasamori, Hiroshi Shinokubo, Yoshihiro Miyake

Abstract Self‐assembly of π‐conjugated molecules in solution generally occurs owing to either an enthalpic or an entropic gain; however, designing π‐conjugated systems that simultaneously exhibit enthalpically and entropically favorable self‐assembly behavior is challenging. Herein, the self‐assembly behavior of tetraazatetrathia[8]circulenes is disclosed, which is driven by both enthalpy and entropy. Single‐crystal X‐ray diffraction analysis demonstrated that molecules of these...

Interface Amorphization of Two‐Dimensional Black Phosphorus upon Treatment with Diazonium Salts

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Aleksandra Mitrović, Stefan Wild, Vicent Lloret, Michael Fickert, Mhamed Assebban, Bence G. Márkus, Ferenc Simon, Frank Hauke, Gonzalo Abellán, Andreas Hirsch

Abstract Two‐dimensional (2D) black phosphorus (BP) represents one of the most appealing 2D materials due to its electronic, optical, and chemical properties. Many strategies have been pursued to face its environmental instability, covalent functionalization being one of the most promising. However, the extremely low functionalization degrees and the limitations in proving the nature of the covalent functionalization still represent challenges in many of these sheet architectures reported to...

A Series of Bisamide‐Substituted Diacetylenes Exhibiting a Terminal Alkyl Odd/Even Parity Effect on Mechanoactivated Photopolymerization

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Jiajun Qi, Yuna Kim, Kiyonori Takahashi, Ken'ichi Aoki, Ichiro Hisaki, Takayoshi Nakamura, Nobuyuki Tamaoki

Abstract Diacetylene derivatives exhibit solid‐state polymerization to polydiacetylene initiated by UV light or γ‐ray irradiation. The activation of the photopolymerization relies on the monomer diynes arrangement. Recently, it has been demonstrated that the first mechanoresponsive bisamide substituted diacetylenes (DAs) show dramatic switching from light‐inert to light‐reactive states at a given pressure. The origin of this unique phenomenon was apparently related to the pressure‐sensitive...

Synthesis of Hydroxylated Biphenyl Derivatives Bearing an α,β‐Unsaturated Ketone as a Lead Structure for the Development of Drug Candidates against Malignant Melanoma

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Maria Antonietta Dettori, Marina Pisano, Carla Rozzo, Giovanna Delogu, Davide Fabbri

Abstract A small collection of C2‐symmetric hydroxylated biphenyl derivatives featuring an α,β‐unsaturated ketone as a lead structure was prepared, and the capacity of these compounds to act as antiproliferative agents against four human malignant melanoma cell lines was assayed. The prodrug approach was applied in order to improve the delivery of compounds into the cell by modulation of the phenolic hydroxy protecting group. The hydroxylated biphenyl structure bearing an α,β‐unsaturated...

Unique Solvatochromic Behavior of Unsymmetrical Platinum‐Dithiolene Complexes Coordinated by 4,4’‐Dinonyl‐2,2’‐Bipyridine

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Aoi Hori, Yuna Kim, Keishiro Tahara, Tomofumi Kadoya, Jun‐ichi Yamada, Kazuya Kubo

Abstract Unsymmetrical metal dithiolene complexes [(nonyl‐bpy)Pt(dmit)] (1) and [(nonyl‐bpy)Pt(C8H4S8)] (2) (nonyl‐bpy=4,4‐dinonyl‐2,2‐bypiridine, dmit=4,5‐disulphanyl‐1,3‐dithiol‐2‐thionate(2−), C8H4S82−=2‐{(4,5‐ethylenedithio)‐1,3‐dithiole‐2‐ylidene}‐1,3‐dithiole‐4,5‐dithiolate(2−)) are synthesized in this study. For 1, two electronic absorption bands at approximately 466 and 584 nm in chloroform are observed and assigned to an intra‐ligand π−π* transition in the dmit moiety and an...

Polymerization‐Driven Photoluminescence in Alkanolamine‐Based C‐Dots

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Robert Ludmerczki, Luca Malfatti, Luigi Stagi, Manuela Meloni, Carlo Maria Carbonaro, Maria Francesca Casula, Dóra Bogdán, Stefania Mura, István M. Mándity, Plinio Innocenzi

Abstract Carbonized polymer dots (CPDs), a peculiar type of carbon dots, show extremely high quantum yields, making them very attractive nanostructures for application in optics and biophotonics. The origin of the strong photoluminescence of CPDs resides in a complicated interplay of several radiative mechanisms. To understand the correlation between CPD processing and properties, the early stage formation of carbonized polymer dots has been studied. In the synthesis, citric acid monohydrate...

Synthesis of Carbapenems Containing Peptidoglycan Mimetics and Inhibition of the Cross‐Linking Activity of a Transpeptidase of l,d Specificity

Published: 21 January 2021

Author(s): Saidbakhrom Saidjalolov, Zainab Edoo, Matthieu Fonvielle, Louis Mayer, Laura Iannazzo, Michel Arthur, Mélanie Etheve‐Quelquejeu, Emmanuelle Braud

Abstract The carbapenem class of β‐lactams has been optimized against Gram‐negative bacteria producing extended‐spectrum β‐lactamases by introducing substituents at position C2. Carbapenems are currently investigated for the treatment of tuberculosis as these drugs are potent covalent inhibitors of l,d‐transpeptidases involved in mycobacterial cell wall assembly. The optimization of carbapenems for inactivation of these unusual targets is sought herein by exploiting the nucleophilicity of the...
