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.

Novel amidating agents containing a 1,4,2-dioxazole moiety allowed for designing a stoichiometric version of the catalytic C–N coupling reaction and giving access to reaction intermediates that reveal details about each step of the reaction. Both DFT and kinetic studies strongly point to a mechanism where the M(III) complex engages the amidating agent via oxidative coupling to form a M(V)-imido intermediate, which then undergoes migratory insertion to afford the final C–N coupled product. For the first time, the stoichiometric versions of the Ir and Rh-mediated amidation reaction were compared systematically to each other. Iridium reacts much faster than rhodium (~ 1100 times at 6.7 oC) with the oxidative coupling being so fast that the activation of the initial Ir(III)-complex becomes rate-limiting. In the case of Rh, the Rh-imido formation step is rate-limiting. These qualitative difference stems from a unique bonding feature of the dioxazole moiety and the relativistic contraction of the Ir(V), which affords much more favorable energetics for the reaction. For the first time, a full molecular orbital analysis is presented to rationalize and explain the electronic features that govern this behavior.  S. H. Cho, J. Kim, J. Kwak, Sukbok Chang, Chem. Soc.

The replacements of framework metal ions and ligands were investigated in metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). The transmetalated MOFs could be obtained by soaking an MOF in the solution of a new replacing metal ion. By simply controlling the soaking time, not only fully transmetalated isostructural framework structure but also selectively transmetalated core-shell bimetallic structure could be prepared. The ligand exchanged MOFs could also be obtained via soaking an MOF in the solution of a new replacing ligand. By controlling the concentration of the replacing ligand, not only an entropically favorable MOF with completely exchanged ligand but also enthalpically favorable MOF with selectively exchanged ligand in the alternating layers could be obtained. While there is no significant structural rearrangement of the framework during the replacement of the framework metal ion, the replacement of the framework ligand led to the significant structural reorganization of the framework.

For example in catalysis (blue triangle in given figure), materials were prepared,characterized in a physical way (e.g. XRD, TEM, BET…) or chemical way (selectivereactions). This practice gained power when computational possibilities were created via theuse of a computer. The next step in this natural process of research was to come up with kineticor physical models describing reality as adequate as possible, giving rise to chemical andphysical descriptors of this reality.Today, the research of Prof. Dr. ir. Philippe M. Heynderickx focuses on the green triangle inthe figure: a combination of catalytic testing of materials (MOFs for e.g. selective adsorptionor fine-chemical reactions or metal oxides catalysts for e.g. selective oxidation reactions), thecorresponding kinetic modeling via fundamental reaction steps using intrinsic data and theupscaling to industrial proportion via reactor simulation.The long-term strategy is the development, construction and implementation of intrinsic kineticmodels describing catalytic reactions for daily relevant applications. Especially environmentalapplications in ‘green chemistry’ conversion, environmental sensors, catalysis andenergy storage applications are envisaged. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- <세미나2> Defect creation via synthesis procedure in metal-organic frameworks Francis Verpoort1,2,3,4, 1 State Key Laboratory of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing; Center for Chemical and Material Engineering, Wuhan University of Technology, Wuhan 430070, P.R.

These results were deduced and supported from crystal morphologies which are related to the rate of crystallization or crystal growth, from surface and porosity properties evaluation from adsorption measurements, and from temperature decomposition analysis. Furthermore, the crystal framework keeps the same structure as proven from the XRD pattern and coordination functional group analysis (Fig.1). The diversity of defect structures correlates with active sites and thus also with the catalytic performance which is confirmed via example of catalytic reactions. The high catalytic performance of MOFs from this invention is related to the presence of more acid and basic sites occurring on defect structure. Knowledge of the nature and amount of defects is of utmost importance to decide which MOF is suitable for a certain catalytic reaction. Fig1.

This presentation will provide an overview of some activities at the Surface and Corrosion Science Division at the Royal Institute of Technologyin Stockholm. The presentation will introduce and discuss the following topics: The quest for green corrosion protective coatings, where we have achived promising results with several different systems including i) UV-cured polymer films (≈ 10 µm thick) incorporating small amount of conducting polymer, ii) superhydrophobic coating layers, and iii) thin films (≈ 100 nm) of mussel adhesive polymers and ceria nanoparticles. Nanomechanical properties of the interphase, i.e. the region next to a particle embedded in a polymer matrix. Such studies are performed using scanning probe methods and provide direct measurements of nanomechanical properties with a high spatial resolution. Molecular lubrication synergies underlying the outstanding lubrication properties of synovial joints, and the development of biomimetic lubricants providing low friction and high load bearing capacity in aqueous media, where we have achieved results that are comparable to that found in synovial joints. The surface chemical approach to anti-icing and de-icing surfaces, where modification of surface properties are utilized for achieving low ice adhesion. At present it seems that such approaches could provide benefit for relatively small surfaces as found in heat exchangers and windscreens.

Therefore, supramolecular polymers are endowed with intriguing functionalities and properties that originate from the dynamic behavior of the non-covalent bonds. However, the “dynamic” reversible polymerization process in turn implies that controlling the length of supramolecular polymers is entropically unlikely. As such, in contrast to conventional polymer chemistry, an important challenge in realizing living polymerization technique has still remained in the supramolecular polymer chemistry1. In this presentation, I would like to show the first example of living supramolecular polymerization reported by us recently2. Our supramolecular polymerization was very unique in that the polymerization pathway was coupled with a competing aggregation pathway3. This pathway complexity dictated the spontaneous supramolecular polymerization to be kinetically controlled, and the addition of “seeds” of the supramolecular polymer initiated the supramolecular polymerization. We have investigated this polymerization process in a similar way to analyze the living polymerization: (1) the polymerization kinetics was the first order to the concentration of the seeds, (2) polymerization can be repeated many times, and (3) polydispersity indices (PDI) of the obtained polymers were around 1.1. All these results demonstrated that we succeeded for the first time in realizing living supramolecular polymerization. Scheme 1. Pathway complexity of supramolecular polymerization2.

Control of molecular orientation, thermal stability, and photochemical stability in vapor-deposited organic glasses
University of Wisconsin-Madison
We have used physical vapor deposition and the mobility of glassy surfaces to prepare what are likely the most stable glasses on the planet.(1) These materials have the properties expected for “million-year-old” glasses, including high density and high mechanical moduli.(2) Surprisingly, these glasses “melt” like crystals, with a constant velocity transformation front.(3) In addition, they resist photochemical degradation better than liquid-cooled glasses. Molecular orientation in vapordeposited glasses can be highly anisotropic.(4) These properties all depend systematically on the substrate temperature during deposition and can be measured efficiently with high throughput spectroscopic ellipsometry.(5)
The interesting properties of vapor-deposited glasses arise from the high mobility of glass surfaces. During deposition, molecules near the free surface have the opportunity to sample many different packing arrangements. This mechanism allows the molecular orientation in vapor-deposited glasses to be predicted from molecular dynamics computer simulations(4, 6) and could be useful for optimizing the performance of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs).

===================================================================================== 제 목 : Efficient Synthetic Methods of N-Heterocyclic Compounds using Pyridinium Zwitterion 연 사 : 유은정 교수(강원대학교) 일 시 : 2016년 6월 9일(목) 오후 4시 30분 장 소 : 화학관 세미나실 (330118호실) ===================================================================================== Efficient Synthetic Methods of N-Heterocyclic Compounds using Pyridinium Zwitterion Eun Jeong Yoo Department of Chemistry, Kangwon National University, Chuncheon 200-701, Korea E-mail:email@example.com [m+n]-Dipolar cycloaddition is a powerful and widely used strategy for synthesizing heterocyclic compounds in a single operation without giving rise to byproducts. Among the known dipoles, azomethine ylide, consisting of an iminium ion adjacent to a carbanion, is an allyl anionic type 1,3-dipole that can be applied to construct N-heterocyclic compounds. However, most studies have mainly focused on [3+2]-dipolar cycloaddition using well-known 1,3-dipoles and 2p-dipolarophiles, while scarce attention has been focused on the development of new types of dipoles, such as 1,2-dipole, 1,4-dipole, and 1,5-dipole, for the formation of non-five-memberted heterocycles. In this presentation, [5+n]-dipolar cycloaddition, which is an extraordinary tool for formation of medium-sized N-heterocyclic compound, will be present. Air-stable pyridinium zwitterion is efficiently prepared via the rhodium-catalyzed reaction between pyridines and 1-sulfonyl-1,2,3-triazoles. This unprecedented pyridinium zwitterion are quite stable and exhibits different pattern of charge distribution in comparison with that of typical azomethine ylides. In addition, isolated zwitterions could be used as a 1,5-dipole for forming medium-sized heterocyclic compounds. Thermal [5+2]-dipolar cycloaddition of pyridinium zwitterions and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate (DMAD) successfully occurs to afford the seven-membered heterocycles with excellent yields. This breakthrough spurred the development of rhodium(II)-catalyzed three-component [5+2] cycloaddition reactions of pyridines, 1-sulfonyl-1,2,3-triazoles, and activated alkynes via the in situ generated 1,5-dipole; thus, a user-friendly and operationally simple strategy for systematic generation of the core structure of 1,4-diazepines was afforded. We will also discuss a new type of intermolecular rhodium(II)-catalyzed [5+3]-dipolar cycloaddition of pyridinum zwitterions and enol diazoacetates. This higher-order cycloaddition allows for the formation of an eight-membered heterocyclic skeleton, which is otherwise difficult to construct. The optimized dipolar cycloaddition occurs efficiently under mild conditions over a wide range of pyridinium zwitterions with high functional group tolerance. References Lee, D. J.; Ko, D.; Yoo, E.
