Phylogenetic diversity of epibiotic bacteria in the accessory nidamental glands of squids (Cephalopoda: Loliginidae and Idiosepiidae)
The cephalopods of temperate regions appear to be associated with one Agrobacterium strain (Agro2) while tropical-subtropical strains (Asian and Australian loliginids) are associated with Silicibacter-related strains, suggesting a biogeographic clustering for the Agrobacteriaium-like strains.

From Prochiral N-Heterocyclic Carbenes (NHCs) to Optically Pure Metal Complexes: New Opportunities in Asymmetric Catalysis.
The carbene transfer from an optically pure Cu-complex to gold or palladium center reveals, for the first time, a full stereoretentivity, supporting the hypothesis of an associative mechanism for the transmetalation. Expand
Characterization of abalone Haliotis tuberculata–Vibrio harveyi interactions in gill primary cultures
Primary cell cultures from abalone gills are suitable for in vitro study of host-pathogen interactions, providing complementary assays to in vivo experiments and showed that V. harveyi bacteria induced significant changes in gill cells metabolism and immune response. Expand
Acyl‐Imidazoles: A Privileged Ester Surrogate for Enantioselective Synthesis
Since the first report by Evans in asymmetric Friedel‐Crafts reactions, the use of acyl‐imidazoles has blossomed as powerful ester/amide surrogates. The imidazole scaffold indeed displays stabilityExpand
Dibromohydantoins as halogen bond (XB) donors: a route toward the introduction of chirality in halogen bonded systems
N,N′-Dibromohydantoins, known as electrophilic bromination reagents, are successfully used here as halogen bond (XB) donors, as demonstrated in their crystalline adducts with para-substitutedExpand
A kinetic resolution strategy for the synthesis of chiral octahedral NHC-iridium(iii) catalysts.
The transmetalation reaction of a chiral-bidentate NHC-silver complex to racemic [Ir(μ-Cl)(ppy)2]2 operates with kinetic resolution leading to chiral octahedral NHC-iridium(iii) complexes andExpand
This paper aims to provide a history of sterilisation techniques and their use in the industrial setting, as well as some examples of how they have changed over the years. Expand
The debut of chiral cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbenes (CAACs) in enantioselective catalysis† †Electronic supplementary information (ESI) available: Experimental procedures, NMR spectra. CCDC 1919315. For
Cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene (CAAC) metal complexes can also engage in asymmetric transformations, thereby expanding the toolbox of available chiral carbene ligands.
Primary co-culture as a complementary approach to explore the diversity of bacterial associations in marine invertebrates: the example of Nautilus macromphalus (Cephalopoda: Nautiloidea)
The results stress the potential of the “cellular approach” as a promising new tool as it promotes the detection of as yet uncultured β-proteobacteria and spirochaetes associated with N. macromphalus, and serves as a foundation for future studies describing potential roles that these bacteria may play in Nautilus.

Copper-catalyzed enantioselective conjugate addition of organometallic reagents to challenging Michael acceptors
The copper-catalyzed enantioselective conjugate addition (ECA) of organometallic nucleophiles to electron-deficient alkenes (Michael acceptors) represents an efficient and attractive methodology forExpand
