A silicon–carbonyl complex stable at room temperature

Nature Chemistry, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41557-020-0456-xCompounds of main-group elements rarely undergo direct carbonylation reactions. Now, an electron-rich silylene intermediate has been shown to readily react with CO to form a silylene carbonyl complex that is stable at room temperature. This complex engages in CO substitution as well as oxidative addition reactions.Authors: Chelladurai

Enantioselective photoinduced cyclodimerization of a prochiral anthracene derivative adsorbed on helical metal nanostructures

Nature Chemistry, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41557-020-0453-0The photoinduced dimerization of a prochiral anthracenecarboxylic acid occurs in an enantioselective fashion when the molecules are adsorbed on helical metal nanostructures. This enantiopreference arises mostly from the helicity of the silver and copper substrates—prepared using shear forces during the deposition process—and may also be influenced by chiroplasmonic effects.Authors: Xueqin

Enhanced reactivity of twisted amides inside a molecular cage

Nature Chemistry, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41557-020-0455-yThe distortion of an amide group away from a planar conformation typically enhances its reactivity and such activation is usually achieved through the chemical synthesis of twisted amides. Now, it has been shown that a non-covalent activation strategy leading to accelerated hydrolysis can be achieved by binding a reactive twisted amide conformer inside a molecular cage.Authors: Hiroki

Reductive Amination of Aryl Boronic Acids: Parallelism of the Catalytic Reactivity of Transition Metals and Main Group Elements in the C(sp2)–N Bond-Forming Reactions

doi.org/10.1055/s-0039-1690893

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1690893

The results of the DFT studies on the mechanism of the PIII/PV=O catalyzed reductive amination of nitrosoarenes using ArB(OH)2 yielding diaryl amines are reported. This allowed a comparison of the reaction paths and key intermediates of the Cu(I)- and P(III)-mediated reductive aminations of aryl boronic acids using alkylnitrites, nitroso- or nitroarenes, and revealed important similarities in the catalytic reactivity of transition-metal and main-group elements in C(sp2)–N bond-forming reactions. It is shown that both transformations occur via ambiphilic nitrenoid-type key intermediates, the reactivity of which towards the aryl boronic acid is attributed to the presence of both a Lewis acid center (Cu or P) and a Lewis base center (the N or O atoms of the ‘N=O’ component).

Zeolites Catalyze the Nazarov Reaction and the tert-Butylation of Alcohols by Stabilization of Carboxonium Intermediates

doi.org/10.1055/s-0039-1690896

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1690896

Zeolites are the most used catalysts worldwide in petrochemistry processes, with particular ability to stabilize carbocations. However, the use of zeolites in organic synthesis is still scarce. We show here that representative carboxonium-mediated organic reactions, such as the Nazarov cyclization and the tert-butylation of alcohols with tert-butyl acetate, typically performed with very strong acid catalysts in solution such as triflic acid, can be catalyzed by simple zeolites with high yield and selectivity. The aluminosilicate framework stabilizes the intermediate carboxonium species and overrides the need for superacid protons in solution.

Further Development of the Tin-Catalyzed Transcarbamoylation Reaction

doi.org/10.1055/s-0040-1708020

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1708020

Studies carried out to further develop tin-catalyzed trans­carbamoylation reactions demonstrated that transcarbamoylation of cinnamyl alcohol in the context of allyl cyanate-to-isocyanate rearrangement can be efficiently carried out on a ten-gram scale and that tin-­catalyzed transcarbamoylation is a valuable alternative to the method using trichloroacetyl isocyanate. In addition, methyl carbamate was found to be an economical carabamoyl donor in tin-catalyzed transcarbamoylation, which showed broad functional group tolerance and allowed a streamlined workup procedure. Finally, a unique synthetic method was developed for the preparation of carbamate-tethered terpene glycoconjugates.

An Unusual Triazole Synthesis from Aurones

doi.org/10.1055/s-0040-1708019

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1708019

Attempts to prepare azido-substituted aurones via a copper-catalyzed azidation failed to afford the desired product, but instead resulted in an unusual triazole formation reaction. Further efforts noted that copper was not required for this reaction, but simply thermal treatment with sodium azide in a polar aprotic solvent. A wide range of substitution patterns were tolerated in this reaction to afford the interesting salicyl-substituted triazoles in modest to excellent yield. While the mechanism is not yet clear, a simple elimination/cyclization pathway seems unlikely given the failure of the reaction on the corresponding thioaurones, which feature an even better thiol leaving group. Regardless, the potential utility of these easily accessible, multifunctional compounds should engender further interest and applications.

Manifestation of the β-Silicon Effect in the Reactions of Unsaturated Systems Involving a 1,2-Silyl Shift

doi.org/10.1055/s-0039-1690898

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1690898

Many chemical transformations of organosilicon compounds proceed due to the capability of silyl substituents to stabilize a positive charge in its β-position. This short review provides an overview of the present understanding of the β-silicon effect and focusses on the synthetic applications of 1,2-silyl shifts resulting from non-vertical stabilization of alkylcarbenium ions and vinyl cations. The reactions of silicon containing unsaturated starting materials, alkenes, allenes, and alkynes, involving β-silyl group stabilized cationic intermediates, transition metal carbenes, or vinylidene complexes will be discussed.1 Introduction2 Origins of the β-Silicon Effect3 Reactions of Allenylsilanes4 Reactions of Alkynes4.1 Propargylsilanes4.2 Alkynylsilanes5 Reactions of Alkenes5.1 Allylsilanes5.2 Vinylsilanes6 Conclusions

Direct Synthesis of 5-Acyl-3-oxy-4-pyrones Based On Acid-­Catalyzed Acylation of Enaminodiones with Acylbenzotriazoles via Soft Enolization

doi.org/10.1055/s-0040-1707471

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1707471

A novel convenient acid-catalyzed acylation of enaminodiones with acylbenzotriazoles via soft enolization has been developed for the direct synthesis of hard-to-reach 5-acyl-3-oxy-4-pyrones. The important advantages of the reaction include broad substrate scope, mild conditions, scalability, and readily isolation of products by crystallization without the use of chromatography. Further modification of the pyrone ring and synthesis of various azaheterocycles via ring-opening transformation have been demonstrated for the preparation of potential scaffolds for inhibition of metalloenzymes.

Three-Component Reaction of Homophthalic Anhydride with Carbonyl Compounds and Ammonium Acetate: New Developments

doi.org/10.1055/s-0040-1708017

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1708017

The earlier described reaction of homophthalic anhydrides with aromatic ketones and ammonium acetate was tested for cyclic ketones (yielding spirocyclic motifs) and aliphatic aldehydes. In contrast to previous findings, the reaction was found to require no catalyst at all and to be applicable, in the non-catalyzed format, to these new carbonyl substrates as well as aromatic ketones. The reaction typically proceeds with high diastereoselectivity; if not, the initial diastereomeric mixture can be quantitatively equilibrated into a single, trans-diastereomer on treatment with aqueous base.

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1690874

Many chiral ethers have important physiological activities. Although many asymmetric hydroalkoxylations of olefins with alcohols or phenols have been developed to make chiral ethers, challenges still remain in achieving high reactivity and selectivity over an ever-increasing diversity of alkenes and alcohols. In this review, recent developments on catalytic asymmetric alkene hydroalkoxylations are summarized based on the substitution patterns of alkenes.1 Introduction2 Asymmetric Hydroalkoxylation of Non-Activated Alkenes2.1 Intramolecular Additions2.2 Intermolecular Additions3 Asymmetric Hydroalkoxylation of Enol Ethers3.1 Intramolecular Additions3.2 Intermolecular Additions4 Asymmetric Hydroalkoxylation of α,β-Unsaturated Carbonyl Compounds4.1 α,β-Unsaturated Ketones and Aldehydes as Substrates4.2 α,β-Unsaturated Esters, Amides and Carboxylic Acids as Substrates5 Asymmetric Hydroalkoxylation of Allenes5.1 Intramolecular Additions5.2 Intermolecular Additions6 Conclusion

Synthesis
DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1690858

Copper-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition is a useful tool for the synthesis of both 1,2,3-triazoles and 5-iodo-1H-1,2,3-triazoles starting from either terminal alkynes or iodoalkynes. 5-Iodotriazoles have been recognized as very useful building blocks for the synthesis of diverse 1,4,5-trisubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles. Synthetic application of 5-iodo-1,2,3-triazoles through the creation of a new C–C, C–heteroatom, or C–D(T) bond along with the application areas of both iodotriazoles and products of their modification including radiolabeled compounds are discussed.1 Introduction2 Synthetic Approaches to 5-Iodo-1H-1,2,3-triazoles3 5-Iodotriazoles in C–C Bond Formation3.1 Intermolecular C–C Cross-Coupling3.2 Intramolecular Cross-Coupling: Direct Arylation and C–I/C–I Homocoupling­3.3 Other Transformations4 5-Iodotriazoles in Radiolabeling, Halogen Exchange, and Heterocoupling Reactions5 Summary
