Key Laboratory of Organosilicon Chemistry and Material Technology of Ministry of Education, Hangzhou Normal University, Hangzhou, 311121, Zhejiang, People's Republic of China.

Fluoro(dialkyl)stannylenoid 2 exhibits unique reactivity towards ethynes with acetylenic hydrogen and those with trimethylsilyl groups, though the corresponding free dialkylstannylene 1 is inactive against those ethynes. Stannylenoid 2 reacts smoothly with gaseous ethyne and phenylethyne at room temperature, giving the corresponding diethynylstannanes, di(phenylethynyl)stannane 3 and diethynylstannane 6, respectively, in good yields with the concomitant evolution of H2. Trimethylsilyl-substituted ethynes such as 1-trimethylsilyl-(2-phenyl)ethyne and 1,2-bis(trimethylsilyl)ethyne react similarly to give 3 and bis(trimethylsilylethynyl)stannane 8, respectively.

Mechanistic Insights into the Dual Directing Group-Mediated C-H Functionalization/Annulation a Hydroxyl Group-Assisted M-M-M Pathway.

ACS Omega 2021 Jul 1;6(27):17642-17650. Epub 2021 Jul 1.

Guangzhou Municipal and Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Protein Modification and Degradation & Molecular Target and Clinical Pharmacology, State Key Laboratory of Respiratory Disease, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou 511436, China.

The experimental investigations on the catalyst [Cp*Rh(OAc) and Cp*Ir (OAc))]-controlled [3 + 2] and [4 + 2] annulations of oximes with propargyl alcohols have been finished in our previous work and a supposed dual directing group-mediated reaction pathway has been deduced for the chemodivergent product synthesis. However, the detailed interaction modes of the dual directing groups binding with the corresponding metal center to achieve the above observed chemoselectivity remain unclear and even contradict. For instance, the calculational traditional dual direct coupling transition states suggested that both Cp*Rh(OAc)- and Cp*Ir(OAc)-catalyzed reactions would generate five-membered indenamines as the dominant products [3 + 2] annulation.

Reaction Kinetics Regulated Formation of Short-Range Order in an Amorphous Matrix during Zeolite Crystallization.

J Am Chem Soc 2021 Jul 16. Epub 2021 Jul 16.

Department of Chemical System Engineering, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-8656, Japan.

The crystallization of zeolites, a disorder-to-order transformation of aluminosilicates, has not been thoroughly understood because the nucleation events in the amorphous matrix are difficult to recognize from the diverse structural changes, especially for the dense hydrogel systems. Therefore, relationships between the synthesis conditions, the generated amorphous species, and the crystallization behavior of zeolites remain unclear. Herein, by comparatively investigating the structural evolution of the aluminosilicate matrix in a dense hydrogel system when different Si reactants (fumed silica and silicate solution) are employed, we demonstrate that the reactivity of the reactants and the kinetics of the condensation reaction is critical to the formation of short-range order in an amorphous matrix, which greatly influences the nucleation frequency of zeolites.
