Lanthanide(III) Tosylates as New Acylation Catalysts

Lanthanide(III) complexes of p-toluenesulfonic acid (Ln(TOS)3)were prepared, characterized, and examined as catalystsfor the acetylation of various alcohols in acetic acid solution. Examination of a

Catalytic performance of lanthanide molecular solids containing well-modified metal–organic octahedra

Channel-like and cage-like porous molecular materials Tb–PT1 and Sm–PT1 were constructed through packing and stacking of the amide-containing lanthanide-based octahedra [Tb6(H3L)4 (NO3)9-3H+]6+ and

Rare earth metal-organic complexes constructed from hydroxyl and carboxyl modified arenesulfonate: syntheses, structure evolutions, and ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared luminescence.

The reaction of 2-hydroxyl-4-carboxylbenzenesulfonic acid (H3L) and rare earth (RE) metal nitrates together with two N-heterocyclic ligands gives rise to the formation of 38 complexes, which have been characterized by elemental analysis, IR, TG, PL, powder and single-crystal X-ray diffraction.

Anion Control of Lanthanoenediyne Cyclization.

A Bergman cyclization landscape that is influenced by the bonding of metal to an enediyne ligand but whose reaction barrier is ultimately dominated by the coordinating ability of the accompanying anion.

An unusual way to synthesize 1-nitronaphthalene from 1-amino-5-nitronaphthalene

Reductive removal of amine substituent from aromatic organic molecules constitutes an important process in organic synthesis (March, 1992). Reactions involving such reductive processes are

Theoretical investigation of ytterbium trichelates compounds

Theoretical studies on ytterbium trichelates, Yb(L)3(L = trifluoromethanesulfonate (OTF), perchlorate (ClO4), p-toluenesulfonic (TOS), nitrobenzenesulfonic (NBSA), and dodecylsulfate (DOS), are



Lanthanide(III) and Group IV metal triflate catalysed electrophilic nitration: ‘nitrate capture’ and the rôle of the metal centre†

The lanthanide(III) triflate, [Ln(OH2)9](OTf)3 (Ln = La–Lu), catalysed nitration of a representative arene, viz. bromobenzene, is reported. The extent of nitration is found to be dependent on the

Synthetic and Structural Studies in the Lanthanide Toluene-4-sulfonate Hydrates

Single-crystal X-ray structure determinations at c. 295 K are reported for representative members of the hydrated toluene-4-sulfonates of the lanthanide elements. The early members of the series,

The crystal structures of the nonahydrates of the rare earth trifluoromethanesulfonates, [M(OH2)9] [CF3SO3]3 have been determined at 295 K for the configurations fO, f7, f14, i.e. M = La, Gd, Lu,

Lanthanide triflates as water-tolerant Lewis acids. Activation of commercial formaldehyde solution and use in the aldol reaction of silyl enol ethers with aldehydes in aqueous media

Lanthanide trifluoromethanesulfonates (triflates), especially ytterbium triflate (Yb(OTf) 3 ), were found to be stable Lewis acids in water. In the presence of a catalytic amount of lanthanide
