Steric strains (F-strain or front-strain) in the acid-base interaction between the Lewis acid [TpMe2Ir(C6H5)2] and 2-substituted pyridines Lewis bases, are responsible for the stabilization of the C-adducts (2) of the respective pyridine carbene tautomers over the expected N-adducts.
The Ir(III) compound Tp(Ms'')Ir(N2), that contains a pentadentate, doubly metalated 3-mesityl substituted tris(pyrazolyl)borate ligand, induces the cleavage of C-H and C-Cl bonds of CH2Cl2 to yield a highly electrophilic chlorocarbene Ir=C(H)Cl complex.
Our aim was to prepare hybrid electrodes active towards the electrooxidation of thiols by the co‐immobilization of native carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and cobalt phthalocyanine (CoPc) from aqueous solutions. This strategy was adopted to avoid the oxidation of CNTs that can induce a modification of their exceptional properties. To do so, a hydrosoluble pyrrole surfactant was used to get homogeneous aqueous dispersions of CNTs and CoPc and to trap both materials on the electrode via the electropolymerization of the pyrrole surfactant. The hybrid electrodes exhibit a good electrocatalytic activity towards the oxidation of L‐cysteine and glutathione. Their performances in terms of limit of detection (0.01 mM) are compatible with the detection of these thiols in biological samples.
C-Br bond activation followed by a C-C coupling reaction of the 2-bromo-pyridyl unit of [1-phenyl-2-(6-bromopyridin-2-yl)-benzoimidazole] was performed by Pd(CH(2)CMe(2)-o-C(6)H(4))(η(4)-COD). Two new seven membered palladacycles were obtained. A combined experimental and theoretical DFT study elucidates the mechanism for this reaction.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
