A new method for the cyanation of thiols and disulfides using cyanobenziodoxol(on)e hypervalent iodine reagents is described. Both aliphatic and aromatic thiocyanates can be accessed in good yields in a few minutes at room temperature starting from a broad range of thiols with high chemioselectivity. The complete conversion of disulfides to thiocyanates was(More)
Alkynes are used as building blocks in synthetic and medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, and materials science. Therefore, efficient methods for their synthesis are the subject of intensive research. Herein, we report the direct synthesis of alkynes from readily available carboxylic acids at room temperature under visible-light irradiation. The(More)
The years follow each other all too rapidly, and it seems like only yesterday that I was writing a similar page for last year's report. It has been a busy year at the CRM. The centre of our scientific programme for the year was our thematic programme in Mathematical Physics. The year began with a remarkable Summer School, held at the Banff Centre for(More)
