Coroneno[1,​12-​cd:2,​3-​cd‘:4,​5-​cd”:6,​7-​c”’d”’:8,​9-​c””d””:10,​11-​c””’d””’]​hexakis[1,​2]​dithiole

A persulfurated coronene, a molecule dubbed a “sulflower” for its resemblance to a sunflower, bloomed this year. It’s the first fully sulfur-substituted polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon and only the second member of a new class of circular heterocyclic carbon sulfide compounds, after the synthesis of octathio[8]circulene a decade ago.

Chemists hope to create other class members, including the simplest one, persulfurated benzene, for use in battery cathodes and other electronic materials.

A team led by Xinliang Feng of Dresden University of Technology and Klaus Müllen of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research created the sulflower (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.6b12630).

Abstract Image

We report the first synthesis of a persulfurated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) as a next-generation “sulflower.” In this novel PAH, disulfide units establish an all-sulfur periphery around a coronene core. The structure, electronic properties, and redox behavior were investigated by microscopic, spectroscopic and electrochemical methods and supported by density functional theory. The sulfur-rich character of persulfurated coronene renders it a promising cathode material for lithium–sulfur batteries, displaying a high capacity of 520 mAh g–1 after 120 cycles at 0.6 C with a high-capacity retention of 90%

Research into energy technologies and electronic devices is strongly governed by the available materials. We introduce a synthetic route to graphenes which is based upon the cyclodehydrogenation (“graphitization”) of well-defined dendritic (3D) polyphenylene precursors. This approach is superior to physical methods of graphene formation such as chemical vapour deposition or exfoliation in terms of its (i) size and shape control, (ii) structural perfection, and (iii) processability (solution, melt, and even gas phase). The most convincing case is the synthesis of graphene nanoribbons under surface immobilization and in-situ control by scanning tunnelling microscopy.
Columnar superstructures assembled from these nanographene discs serve as charge transport channels in electronic devices. Field-effect transistors (FETs), solar cells, and sensors are described as examples.
Upon pyrolysis in confining geometries or “carbomesophases”, the above carbon-rich 2D- and 3D- macromolecules transform into unprecedented carbon materials and their carbon-metal nanocomposites. Exciting applications are shown for energy technologies such as battery cells and fuel cells. In the latter case, nitrogen-containing graphenes serve as catalysts for oxygen reduction whose efficiency is superior to that of platinum.

A derivatisation agent selection guide

 

Abstract

The study reported herein is aimed at the greenness assessment of 267 derivatisation agents that are frequently applied in analytical chemistry and related disciplines. Multicriteria decision analysis allowed obtaining three rankings of derivatisation agents applied in liquid chromatography, gas chromatography and chiral analysis. The criteria of assessment included the safety information obtained from material safety data sheets and physicochemical and environmental parameters predicted with relevant models. As for some of the agents predicted data were not available, these agents were assessed with a smaller number of criteria, within the ranking of low confidence. The results of the study will help to apply greener derivatisation agents, wherever the green chemistry principle of avoiding derivatisation cannot be fulfilled.

The present study provides an assessment, in terms of greenness, of 267 LC, GC and chiral derivatisation agents typically used in analytical chemistry and related fields. The preference rankings were performed for each group of derivatisation agents by means of MCDA according to the best relevant criteria that are available. In all three cases fine rankings were obtained for high and low confidence assumptions. For more informative assessment, it would be beneficial to include toxicological endpoints and more information about environmental persistence among assessment criteria. Incorporating valuable greenness indicators of synthesis processes such as carbon footprint or energy needs during production of each chemical as assessment criteria would be worthwhile. Unfortunately, these values are not easily available in the literature for a satisfactory number of derivatisation agents. Furthermore, recovery of derivatisation agents is another important issue that influences the greenness of derivatisation reactions, so its inclusion as assessment criterion would also be desirable. However, it is dependent on reaction specific conditions – not only the kind of derivatisation agent matters, but also analytes to be determined and solvents employed. The greenness of derivatisation agents is very rarely considered during analytical method development. The main criteria for selection of derivatisation agents are their rapidity and efficiency, but greenness should be also considered. This study allows selecting less problematic derivatisation agents for analytical method development while some clues can also be deduced for other than analytical applications.

Catalytic C-H amination at its limits: challenges and solutions

Pushing C-H amination to its limits fosters innovative synthetic solutions and offers a deeper understanding of the reaction mechanism and scope.

Catalytic C–H amination at its limits: challenges and solutions

 

Abstract

Catalytic C–H amination reactions enable direct functionalization of non-activated C(sp3)–H bonds with high levels of regio-, chemo- and stereoselectivity. As a powerful tool to unlock the potential of inert C–H bonds, C–H amination chemistry has been applied to the preparation of synthetically challenging targets since major simplification of synthetic sequences are expected from this approach. Pushing C–H amination to its limits has led to a deeper understanding of the reaction mechanism and scope. In this review, we present a description of the specific challenges facing catalytic C–H amination in the synthesis of natural products and related compounds, as well as innovative tactics created to overcome them. By identifying and discussing the major insights gained and strategies designed, we hope that this review will stimulate further progress in C–H amination chemistry and beyond.

Conclusion Since the seminal works of Du Bois in the early 2000s, the pace of discovery in the field of metal-catalysed C–H amination has been breath-taking. Not surprisingly, this synthetic tool has been applied to the total synthesis of many compounds of interest, given the high prevalence of the amino group in natural products and synthetic pharmaceuticals.67 Chemist’s confidence in the high potential of the C–H amination methodology to unlock inert C–H bonds has been demonstrated by its application to more and more challenging substrates. This has been a powerful drive for progress in the field. New valuable insights have been gained allowing, for example, a better regiochemical control via stereoelectronic and/or conformational effects. Innovative strategies have been discovered to direct the insertion event in substrates bearing a large degree of attendant functionality. Solutions have spanned from the elegant exploitation of kinetic isotope effects to the tactical use of protecting groups with different sizes or electronic characteristics. Systematic exploration of different catalytic systems has been also performed leading to the opening of new possibilities in C–H amination technology. Manganese-based catalysts have thus given rise to nitrenoids that overcome the low reactivity of primary aliphatic C–H bonds without interfering with weaker secondary/tertiary C–H bonds. Despite these impressive achievements, much remains to be done. Counterintuitive selectivity and unexplained reactivity should serve as a reminder that further studies are highly needed to understand in depth catalytic C–H amination chemistry. Many challenges remain on the way, from basic to applied research. A clear mechanistic view based on definitive evidence concerning the details of the C–N bond forming process would undoubtedly facilitate the rational design of efficient catalytic systems leading to higher regio-, chemio- and stereoselectivity. In particular, the quest for site-selective C–H amination through catalyst control has to be pursued.10d,e In this context, the development of efficient intermolecular C–H amination process still represents a major challenge and upcoming advancements are expected to increase the impact of this technology in organic synthesis. Future progress made in the field of catalytic C–H amination chemistry might also lead to industrial-scale applications in the next decade. It is likely that total synthesis of synthetically challenging targets related to natural products will continue to be a powerful driving force towards this goal.

Graphical abstract: Highly active, separable and recyclable bipyridine iridium catalysts for C–H borylation reactions

Highly active, separable and recyclable bipyridine iridium catalysts for C–H borylation reactions

Abstract

Iridium complexes generated from Ir(I) precursors and PIB oligomer functionalized bpy ligands efficiently catalyzed the reactions of arenes with bis(pinacolato)diboron under mild conditions to produce a variety of arylboronate compounds. The activity of this PIB bound homogeneous catalyst is similar to that of an original non-recyclable catalyst which allows it to be used under milder conditions than other reported recyclable catalysts. This oligomer-supported Ir catalyst was successfully recovered through biphasic extraction and reused for eight cycles without a loss of activity. Biphasic separation after the initial use of the catalyst led to an insignificant amount of iridium leaching from the catalyst to the product, and no iridium leaching from the catalyst was observed in the subsequent recycling runs. Arylboronate products obtained after extraction are sufficiently pure as observed by 1H and 13C-NMR spectroscopy that they do not require further purification.

Current Activities

Our group explores new chemistry related to catalysis and polymer functionalization using the tools and precepts of synthetic organic chemistry to prepare functional oligomers or polymers that in turn are used to either effect catalysis in a greener, more environmentally benign way or to more efficiently functionalize polymers. Often this involves creatively combining the physiochemical properties of a polymer with the reactivity of a low molecular weight compound to form new materials with new functions. These green chemistry projects involve undamental research both in synthesis and catalysis but has practical aspects because of its relevance to practical problems.

A common theme in our catalysis studies is exploring how soluble polymers can facilitate homogeneous catalysis. Homogeneous catalysts are ubiquitously used to prepare polymers, chemical intermediates, basic chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Such catalysts often use expensive or precious metals or expensive ligands or are used at relatively high catalyst loadings. The products often contain traces of these catalysts or ligands – traces that are undesirable for esthetic reasons or because of the potential toxicity of these impurities. Both the cost of these catalysts of these issues require catalyst/product separation – separations that often are inefficient and lead to chemical waste. These processes also use volatile organic solvents – solvents that have to be recovered and separated. Projects underway in our lab explore how soluble polymers can address each of these problems. Examples of past schemes that achieve this goal in a general way as highlighted in the Figure below.

We also use functional polymers to modify existing polymers. Ongoing projects involve molecular design of additives that can more efficiently modify polymers’ physical properties. We also use functional polymers in covalent layer-by-layer assembly to surface polymers’ surface chemistry. An example of this work is our use of ‘smart’ polymers that reversibly change from being water soluble cold to being insoluble and hydrophobic on heating. Such polymers’ have been used by us to prepare ‘smart’ catalysts, ‘smart’ surfaces and membranes, and to probe fundamental chemistry underlying temperature and salt-dependent protein solvation.

Abstract

Abstract Image

Cross-coupling of (hetero)arylthiols with arylzinc reagents via C–S cleavage was performed under transition-metal-free conditions. The reaction displays a wide scope of substrates and high functional-group tolerance. Electron-rich and -deficient (hetero)arylthiols and arylzinc reagents can be employed in this transformation. Mg2+ and Li+ ions were demonstrated to facilitate the reaction.

In summary, we developed a transition-metal-free coupling reaction of (hetero)arylthiols with arylzinc reagents to form bi(hetero)aryls. The reaction exhibited wide substrate scope and good compatibility of functional groups. Electron-rich and -poor aryl or heteroaryl thiols can be converted. Various arylzinc reagents, including electron-rich and electron-poor reagents, can be employed as the coupling partners. Preliminary mechanistic studies suggest a nucleophilic aromatic substitution pathway, and Mg2+ and Li+ ions play important roles in the process of reaction. This study provides an example of S2– as a leaving group in an aromatic system and an effective methodology for the synthesis of bi(hetero)aryls including pharmaceutical molecules without transition-metal impurities.

Benzisoxazole: a privileged scaffold for medicinal chemistry

 

Abstract

The benzisoxazole analogs represent one of the privileged structures in medicinal chemistry and there has been an increasing number of studies on benzisoxazole-containing compounds. The unique benzisoxazole scaffold also exhibits an impressive potential as antimicrobial, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-glycation agents and so on. This review examines the state of the art in medicinal chemistry as it relates to the comprehensive and general summary of the different benzisoxazole analogs, their use as starting building blocks of multifarious architectures on scales sufficient to drive human drug trials. The number of reports describing benzisoxazole-containing highly active compounds leads to the expectation that this scaffold will further emerge as a potential candidate in the field of drug discovery.

An efficient green protocol for the synthesis of tetra-substituted imidazoles catalyzed by zeolite BEA: effect of surface acidity and polarity of zeolite

*Corresponding authors

Abstract

In the present study, the catalytic activity of various medium (H-ZSM-5) and large pore (H-BEA, H-Y, H-MOR) zeolites were studied as solid acid catalysts. The zeolite H-BEA is found to be an efficient catalyst for the synthesis of 1-benzyl-2,4,5-triphenyl-1H-imidazoles through one-pot, 4-component reaction (4-CR) between benzil, NH4OAc, substituted aromatic aldehydes and benzyl amine. The hydrophobicity, Si/Al ratio and acidic properties of zeolite BEA were well improved by controlled dealumination. The synthesized materials were characterized by various characterization techniques such as XRD, ICP-OES, BET, NH3-TPD, FT-IR, pyridine FT-IR, 27Al and 1H MAS NMR. It has been observed that the dealumination of the parent zeolite H-BEA (12) results in the enhanced strength of Brønsted acidity up to a certain Si/Al ratio which is attributed to the inductive effect of Lewis acidic EFAl species, leading to the higher activity of the zeolite BEA (15) catalyst towards the synthesis of 1-benzyl-2,4,5-triphenyl-1H-imidazoles under thermal solvent-free conditions with good to excellent yields. Using the present catalytic synthetic protocol, diverse tetra-substituted imidazoles, which are among the significant biologically active scaffolds, were synthesized in high yield within a shorter reaction time. The effect of polarity, surface acidity and extra framework Al species of the catalysts has been well demonstrated by means of pyridine FT-IR, and 27Al and 1H MAS NMR. The solvent-free synthetic protocol makes the process environmentally benign and economically viable.

Dimethyl carbonate: a versatile reagent for a sustainable valorization of renewables

 Author affiliations

Giulia Fiorani

Postdoctoral Research Fellow presso University of Oxford
Dr. Fiorani earned her PhD in Chemical Sciences from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (2010) on synthesis and applications of ionic liquids. After several post-doctoral experiences (University of Padua, Italy 2010-2012, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice 2012-2013), Giulia was awarded a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellow in 2014 at ICIQ (Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia, Tarragona, Spain) working under the supervision of Prof. Arjan W. Kleij  on the preparation of cyclic organic carbonates from CO2 and terpene based oxiranes. Giulia joined the Williams group in 2016 and is working on renewable based polymers.

Abstract

Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is an environmentally sustainable compound which can be used efficiently for the upgrading of several promising renewables including glycerol, triglycerides, fatty acids, polysaccharides, sugar-derived platform molecules and lignin-based phenolic compounds. This review showcases a thorough overview of the main reactions where DMC acts as a methylating and/or methoxycarbonylating agent for the transformation of small bio-based molecules as well as for the synthesis of biopolymers. All processes exemplify genuine green archetypes since they couple innocuous reactants of renewable origin with non-toxic DMC. Each section of the review provides a detailed overview on reaction conditions and scope of the investigated reactions, and discusses the rationale behind the choice of catalyst(s) and the proposed mechanisms. Criticism and comments have been put forward on the pros and cons of the described methods and their perspectives, as well as on those studies which still require follow-ups and more in-depth analyses.
