Reversible interconversion between alkenes and nitriles without using HCN
Researchers from Max Planck Institute have devised a synthetic strategy that opens the door to many medicinally important molecules. Their strategy is a reversible reaction that converts alkenes to alkyl nitriles without using or producing noxious HCN gas.
Iron-catalyzed intermolecular [2+2] cycloadditions of unactivated alkenes
The analogous [2+2] alkene cycloaddition to synthesize cyclobutanes is kinetically accessible by photochemical methods, but the substrate scope and functional group tolerance are limited.
Cooperative catalysts offer unique route to alkenes
Chemists at Princeton have developed a new chemical method to introduce valuable alkenes into simple hydrocarbon molecules, a transformation known as dehydrogenation, which is found in important processes such as the biosynthesis of essential fatty ...
Cyclobutane derivatives made from [2+2] cycloaddition of feedstock alkenes and
But because these methods often require activated alkenes, there are limits to the varieties of substituted cyclobutanes that are synthetically available.
New process draws poison from nitrile production
A new way to turn alkenes into alkyl nitriles and vice versa without the need for dangerous hydrogen cyanide gas has been developed by chemists in Germany. The process could enable synthetic chemists to explore new molecules by performing reactions ...
