Khaliullin Department of Chemistry, McGill University, Quebec, Canada Despite remarkable recent progress in linear-scaling density function theory, the computational cost of exist-ing methods remains too high for routine ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) simulations. We developeda linear-scaling AIMD method with an extremely low computational overhead by assuming that electronsin materials are strictly localized within prede ned radii. High eciency of the method is achieved withoutsacri cing its accuracy with a combination of two techniques: (1) on-the-y construction of accurate localizedorbitals without lengthy optimization and (2) the stochastic integrator that is ne-tuned to retain stabledynamics even with imperfect forces. A remarkable feature of the implemented method is that it remainsecient for challenging condensed phase systems even if large accurate basis sets are used. We demonstratedthat, for systems well-represented by localized electrons (e.g. molecular systems, ionic salts), the new AIMDmethod enables simulations on previously inaccessible time and length scales. Applications of the methodto more challenging systems of strongly interacting atoms (e.g. covalent crystals) will also be discussed.1

Our current research is focused on studying breakthrough knowledge in catalytic synthetic methods and molecular design that have high impact on broader scientific fields. The state-of-the-art of approach can be seen using systematic experimental and theoretical methods from three steps: (1) development of innovative synthetic methods that allow rapid access to molecular complexity and structural diversity of privileged fragments, (2) fragment-based drug design (FBDD) and de novo design methods connecting privileged building blocks, (3) development of potent and selective inhibitors based on understanding the mechanisms at the molecular level. The selective C–H bond functionalization has become the favored reaction methods in practical synthetic processes. The new catalytic synthetic methods allow us to perform the unprecedented disconnection of target molecules, affording innovative and imaginative synthetic strategies of so-called “privileged scaffolds”. The power and efficiency of direct C–H functionalization could be further enhanced by combining such catalytic transformations into a one-pot process, which is highly desirable by providing a powerful platform for constructing complicated key motifs from simple starting materials. Subsequent medicinal chemistry studies involving a modular approach and privileged fragments assembly, will provide bases for the development of pharmaceutical agents via structure-based design. The new catalytic synthetic methods will function as competent tools directly utilized in cross coupling reactions capable of connecting privileged building blocks, providing opportunities for the successful implementation of fragment-based drug design (FBDD) and eventually streamline drug discovery research.
============================================================== 제 목 : Evolution of Form in Metal-Organic Frameworks 연 사 : 최원영 교수님(UNIST) 일 시 : 2017년 6월 1일(목) 오후 4시 30분 장 소 : 화학관 2층 서병인 강의실 (330226호실) ============================================================== Evolution of Form in Metal-Organic Frameworks Wonyoung Choe Department of Chemistry Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology Ulsan, 44919 Self-assembly has proven to be a widely successful synthetic strategy for functional materials, especially for Metal-Organic Materials (MOMs), an emerging class of porous materials consisting of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Metal-Organic Polyhedra (MOPs). However, there are areas in MOM synthesis in which such self-assembly has not been fully utilized, such as controlling the interior of MOM crystals. Here, we demonstrate sequential self-assembly strategy for synthesizing various forms of MOM crystals, including double-shell hollow MOMs, based on single-crystal to single-crystal transformation from MOP to MOF. Moreover, this synthetic strategy also yields other forms, such as solid, core-shell, double and triple matryoshka, and single-shell hollow MOMs, thereby exhibiting form evolution in MOMs. We anticipate that this synthetic approach might open up a new direction for the development of diverse forms in MOMs, with highly advanced areas such as sequential drug delivery/release and heterogeneous cascade catalysis targeted in the foreseeable future.
====================================== 제 목 : Multiselective Diels–Alder Reaction Induced by Chiral Supramolecular Lewis Acid Catalysts 연 사 : Prof. Kazuaki Ishihara(Nagoya University) 일 시 : 2017년 5월 18일(목) 오후 4시 15분 장 소 : 화학관 1층 첨단강의실(330110호) -------------------------------------- Multiselective Diels–Alder Reaction Induced by Chiral Supramolecular Lewis Acid Catalysts Kazuaki Ishihara Nagoya University, Japan The control of multiple selectivities is still a challenging subject in modern organic chemistry. In this regard, the Diels–Alder (DA) reaction is a significant tool for the total synthesis of complex organic molecules. When used in the DA reaction, conventional chiral catalysts can discriminate the prochiral enantio-face (i.e., re/si-face) of a dienophile regardless of the diene (two-dimensional discrimination). However, they cannot control the diastereo- (i.e., endo/exo-), regio-, site-, or substrate-selectivity, since this would require the three-dimensional discrimination of isomeric transition-state structures. In general, huge enzymes in vivo can realize such multi-selectivity by using a chiral cavity, which provides a three-dimensional space that includes an active site. The cavities of enzymes are conformationally flexible to catch substrates and release products (induced fit function). To overcome the limited selectivity due to the small cavity and conformational rigidity of conventional chiral Lewis acid catalysts, supramolecular catalysts, which are prepared in situfrom small components by coordinating bonds, have been considered. Indeed, there are a few examples of the use of supramolecular O-shaped catalysts that induce anomalous site-selectivity in DA reactions. However, their catalytic activities are not adequate due to their conformational rigidity. In contrast, Prof. Ishihara et al.envisioned that chiral supramolecular U-shaped catalysts, which are more conformationally flexible than O-shaped catalysts, could induce high catalytic activity with multi-selectivity. In this lecture, Prof. Ishihara presents that an asymmetric DA reaction of propargyl aldehyde with cyclopentadiene can be controlled so as to provide high enantio-, endo/exo-, regio-, and substrate-selectivities by using chiral supramolecular U-shaped catalysts.

A detailed understanding of the mechanisms by which these rearrangements contribute to the thermodynamics of recognition processes is, thus, essential for better understanding—and predicting—the energetics of important biomolecular recognitions. In this respect, the hydrophobic effect—the tendency of nonpolar surfaces to associate in aqueous solution—is one of the major driving forces of many biomolecular recognition events. The hydrophobic effect arises from free energetically favorable rearrangements of water, whose thermodynamic consequences are fairly well understood for flat, nonpolar entities in aqueous solution (where the intermolecular association of such entities gives rise to the entropically favorable, enthalpically unfavorable release of ordered waters from their surfaces), but incompletely understood—and difficult to predict—for interactions between ligands and the morphologically complex and chemically heterogeneous binding pockets of proteins. In this talk, I will introduce our efforts to examine the role of water filling the binding pocket of human carbonic anhydrase II (HCAII, EC 4.2.11) in its bindings with structurally varied sulfonamide ligands, by combining isothermal titration calorimetry, X-ray crystallography, site-directed mutagenesis, and molecular dynamics simulations. By this set of methods, we showed that (i) the hydrophobic surface area of a ligand does not improve DGºb, unless that increased non-polar area is buried in the binding process, and values of DHºb and -TDSºb depend on the structure (or morphology) of a ligand; (ii) reorganizing networks of water inside the binding pocket by mutating amino acids thereof brings about huge and compensating changes in values of DHºband -TDSºb.

Lyngby, Denmark Life-long maintenance of biotribosystems, such as synovial joints, ocular tracts, and oral cavity, is remarkable and even puzzling considering that the base stock for the lubrication is water. For most man-made engineering systems, water is generally excluded as lubricant due to its poor capabilities to withstand external loads on its own. Nature solves this problem by incorporating pressure-responsive, “smart coatings”, such as mucus gel layers on the surface, and thus facilitate the entrainment and retainment of water (lubricant) at the rubbing interfaces. Mucins, a family of high-molecular-weight glycoproteins and a main macromolecular constituent of mucus gels, are interesting also because they show unique slipperiness at the interface composed of synthetic materials too. This, in turn, has inspired the development of mucin-like, brush-forming synthetic polymers, which can be applied in the lubrication of engineering materials with water. Biophysical properties of both mucinous glycoproteins and their mimics, brush-forming polymers, are very sensitive to environmental changes, and this feature can be exploited to optimize their properties for particular applications. Studies on soft matter at the rubbing interfaces firstly help understand the biological mechanisms of lubrication and provide useful hints for biomimetic lubrication engineering. Furthermore, various fundamental properties of soft matter on surface can be revealed only by being exposed to interfacial shear stresses. This talk will provide an overview on recent researches on the conformation, surface adsorption, and biotriobological properties of mucins/mucus gels with varying origin, purity, and environment as well as synthetic brush-like polymer chains, including poly(ethylene oxide)(PEO)-based copolymers, carbohydrate-based copolymers, and polyeletrolyte-based copolymers.

We have developed a variety of radical transformations using Ru-, Ir-, and Pt-based photocatalysts under visible light irradiation. Fluoroalkylated organic compounds play significant roles in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and material sciences owing to the substantial influence that fluorine substitution has on the physical and chemical properties of substances. Visible light-induced methods allowed access to fluoroalkyl group-containing molecules, such as –CF2R, –CF3,and –CF2SPh groups.1 In the studies, electron deficient carbon-centered fluoroalkyl radicals were successfully generated by the appropriate choice of fluoroalkyl source, photocatalyst, additives, and solvent. Notably, we have observed that additives significantly affect the efficiencies and selectivities of these reactions and can even change the outcome of the reaction by playing additional roles during its course. By understanding the roles of additives, we developed several controlled fluoroalkylation reactions of alkenes and alkynes where different products were formed selectively from the same starting substrates.2-4 Polyheteroaromatic compounds have also attracted much attention due to their unique p-conjugation, which make them suitable functional materials in many applications. The synthesis of carbazole motif has been accomplished using N-substituted amidobiaryls through the merger of photoredox and palladium catalysis.5 The use of 1 mol% of an Ir-photocatalyst obviated the typical high loadings of external chemical additives in the transformation. And recently, we synthesized a new class of polyheteroaromatics from the coupling process between readily accessible 2-heteroaryl substituted aromatic amines and heteroaromatic alkynes by an Ir-catalyzed visible light photocatalysis.6 [References] Chatterjee, T.; Iqbal, N.; You, Y.; Cho, E.

It is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust after aluminum and therefore is much cheaper than the precious metals that are often applied. Regarding the catalytic efficiency and broad applicability, at present iron is still behind palladium as the most versatile catalytic metal, however, the tremendously increasing number of publications demonstrates that iron is catching up. Unlikely palladium, iron can adopt ocidation states from -2 to +5, thus, in low oxidation states it may be operative as an iron-centered nucleophile and catalyze nucleophilic substitutions and additions. In contrast, iron Lewis acid catalyzed reactions have been known for a long time, for example electrophilic aromatic substitutions. Haaving this potential in mind, our lab has been interested in alternative use of iron catalysis in the following organic synthesis. First, we reported Fe catalyzed atom-economical tandem reaction of alkene-iodide in the present of equimolar aryl Grignard reagent. Aryl Grignard reagent is used to generate Fe-Grignard complex and the counter aryl anion is used in the further cross-coupling, thereby affording the tandem cyclization/cross-coupling radical reaction. Also, the nucleophilic cyclization reactions of allenes were catalyzed by Fe(III) to afford the corresponding heterocycle compound. Fe(III) catalysts were applied in the reactions of allenyl amides or allenyl alcohols and cyclized compounds containing O or N heteroatom were produced with moderate to good yields.
