A ferrocene-based ionic liquid (Fe-IL) is used as a metal-containing feedstock with a nitrogen-enriched ionic liquid (N-IL) as a compatible nitrogen content modulator to prepare a novel type of non-precious-metal-nitrogen-carbon (M-N-C) catalysts, which feature ordered mesoporous structure consisting of uniform iron oxide nanoparticles embedded into(More)
CTSD (Cathepsin D) is a key enzyme in yolk formation, and it primarily affects egg yolk weight and egg weight. However, recent research has mostly focused on the genomic structure of the CTSD gene and the enzyme's role in pathology, and less is known about the enzyme's functions in chickens. In this paper, the correlations between CTSD polymorphisms and egg(More)
A series of carbene complexes [PdBr(2)((i)Pr(2)-bimy)L] (C2-C13) with different types of co-ligands (L) have been tested for their catalytic activities in the carbonylative annulation of 2-iodophenol with phenylacetylene in DMF to afford the respective flavone 2a. Complex C12 with an N-phenylimidazole co-ligand showed the best activity and also afforded(More)
A novel and direct approach to synthesize a series of phosphonate, azide and hydroxy functionalized chroman-4-ones has been developed. The cascade transformation appears to proceed through an intramolecular addition of an in situ generated acyl radical onto the alkene, followed by a selective nucleophilic radical-electrophilic radical cross coupling.
Rh-catalyzed C-H carbonylation of indoles under 1 atm of CO has been achieved. Various substituted indoles and indole with free N-H could be carboxylated with linear- and/or cyclic-alcohol to give the desired indole-3-carboxylates with up to 92% yield. A mechanism involving Rh(III) initiated C-H metallation is proposed.
A novel and efficient synthesis of functionalized oxazoles from 2-amidodihydrofurans has been achieved by alkali-induced intramolecular C-O bond cleavage and formation using air as a green oxidant. Moreover, these functionalized oxazoles could be readily transformed into the corresponding oxazole-substituted pyrazoles and 2H-azirines.
A facile acid-catalyzed acylation of indoles with 1,3-dione as an eco-friendly acylating agent was developed. This protocol combines C-C bond cleavage and heterocyclic C-H bond functionalization to form new C-C bonds. Based on the detailed mechanistic studies, a credible mechanistic pathway was proposed.
A copper-catalyzed C-C bond cleavage reaction of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds with 2-iodoanilines was developed. In this process, the ortho effect played an important role in the reactivity and a new reaction pathway that involved a (2-aminophenyl)-bis-(1,3-dicarbonyl) copper species was clearly observed by a time-course HRMS analysis of the reaction mixture.(More)
The first Pd-catalyzed direct phosphonation of azoles with dialkyl phosphites has been achieved without addition of base or acid. This method involves the oxidative cleavage of C-H and P(O)-H bonds and represents an atom-efficiency alternative to the classical phosphonation of Ar-X. A Pd(II)/Pd(IV) mechanism has been studied and proposed.
