Our latest communication in ACIE is ready for publishing

"Rhodium(III)‐Catalyzed Annulation of 2‐Alkenylanilides with Alkynes via C‐H Activation: a Direct Access to 2‐substituted Indolines" by Font, M., Cendón, B., Seoane, A., Mascareñas, J.L., and Gulías, M., is our recent communication to Angewandte Chemie International Edition

Abstract:
A Rh(III) complex featuring an electron‐deficient η5‐cyclopentadienyl ligand catalyzes an unusual annulation between alkynes and 2‐alkenylanilides, to form synthetically appealing 2‐substituted indolines. Formally, the process can be viewed as an allylic amination with concomitant hydrocarbonation of the alkyne. Mechanistic experiments indicate that this transformation involves a peculiar Rhodium migration with a concomitant 1,5‐H shift.

Nice collaboration with the research group of Liz-Marzán (CIC biomaGUNE, San Sebastian) and the former PhD student of our group Jesus Mosquera

03/21/2018
Already on-line our last publication in J. Am. Chem. Soc. This paper comes from a collaborative project with the group of Prof. L. M. Liz-Marzán.

A collaborative research paper, entitled Cellular Uptake of Gold Nanoparticles Triggered by Host–Guest Interactions, leaded by Dr. J. Mosquera (former PhD student in our group) from the group of Prof. L.M. Liz-Marzán at CIC biomaGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain) has been recently accepted in the J. Am. Chem. Soc.
