Control over molecular motion using the cis–trans photoisomerization of the azo group
TLDR
This work describes selected examples of systems containing an azobenzene moiety and their motions and geometrical changes caused by external stimuli.
B-alkyl suzuki-miyaura cross-coupling reactions with air-stable potassium alkyltrifluoroborates.
TLDR
The palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of substituted potassium alkyltrifluoroborates 1, 2, and 3a-e were easily synthesized and obtained as air-stable crystalline solids that can be stored for long periods of time.
Pyrene-Containing ortho-Oligo(phenylene)ethynylene Foldamer as a Ratiometric Probe Based on Circularly Polarized Luminescence
TLDR
The first synthesis of an organic monomolecular emitter, which behaves as a circularly polarized luminescence (CPL)-based ratiometric probe, is reported, which is prepared by a new and efficient macrocyclization reaction.
Friedel-Crafts Alkylation of Indoles with p-Quinols: The Role of Hydrogen Bonding of Water for the Desymmetrization of the Cyclohexadienone System.
TLDR
Experimental results and theoretical calculations explained the enantioselectivity based on a transition state where two water molecules act as a tether joining the p-quinol with the phosphoric acid and the NH of indole, thus facilitating the desymmetrization of the prochiral cyclohexadienone framework.
Enantiopure sulfoxides: recent applications in asymmetric synthesis.
TLDR
Significant recent advances leading to high asymmetric inductions in carbon-carbon and carbon-oxygen bond forming reactions, and applications of homochiral sulfoxides to atroposelective synthesis and asymmetric catalysis are discussed.
Deaminative Reductive Arylation Enabled by Nickel/Photoredox Dual Catalysis.
Described is a cross-electrophilic, deaminative coupling strategy harnessing Katritzky salts as a new species of electrophile in Ni/photoredox dual catalytic reductive cross-coupling reactions.
Organic-based molecular switches for molecular electronics.
TLDR
This feature article presents the diverse strategies used to develop organic switches towards ME with special attention to non-volatile systems.
Glucose-functionalized amino-OPEs as biocompatible photosensitizers in PDT.
Versatile bottom-up approach to stapled π-conjugated helical scaffolds: synthesis and chiroptical properties of cyclic o-phenylene ethynylene oligomers.
TLDR
The chiroptical responses of the systems having enantiopure L-tartrate-derived staples confirmed the induced helicity, andoretical studies suggest that these CNCs are pseudoelastic.
