Abstract:
We report the synthesis, gelation abilities and aggregation-induced, blue-shifted emission (AIBSE) properties of two minimalistic diketopiperazine-based gelators. Despite containing a highly insoluble luminophore that makes up more than half of their respective molecular masses, efficient hydrogelation by multiple stimuli for one and efficient organogelation for the other compound are reported. Insights into the aggregation and gelation properties were gained through examination of the photophysical and material properties of selected gels, which are representative of the different modes of gelation. The synthesis of the gelators is highly modular and based on readily available amino acid building blocks, allowing the efficient and rapid diversification of these core structures and fine-tuning of gel properties.

Abstract:
Landing to explore beneath the silvery reflection of the moon, the unusual air oxidation of silver was investigated, granting access to the homoleptic anion [AgIII(CF3)4]− (1). The crew compartment of the Lunar Lander illustrates the structure of 1 mimicking the heraldic Occitan Cross, symbol of Occitania, where this work was developed. Compound 1 reacts with 1,10-phenanthroline leading to the organosilver(III) compound [(phen)AgIII(CF3)3], which is depicted in the descent stage of the Lunar Lander. Upon addition of aryl boron derivatives and base, [(phen)AgIII(CF3)3] undergoes aromatic trifluoromethylation. More information can be found in the Full Paper by N. Nebra et al.

Abstract:
Near-infrared absorbing properties are of great interest in organic semiconducting materials for near-infrared-active optoelectronic applications. A series of thienoquinoid-containing molecules are presented that show very small optical energy gaps of down to 0.72 eV, corresponding to a wavelength of 1700 nm. The key to the very small optical energy gaps is an efficient quinoid-aromatic resonance along the conjugated backbones that significantly reduces the bond length alternation. More information can be found in the Full Paper by K. Kawabata and K. Takimiya (DOI: 10.1002/chem.202102663).

Abstract:
Axially-chiral atropisomeric compounds are widely applied in asymmetric catalysis and medicinal chemistry. In particular, axially chiral indole- and indoline-based frameworks have been recognised as important heterobiaryl classes because they are the core units of bioactive natural alkaloids, chiral ligands and bioactive compounds. Among them, the synthesis of C7-substituted indole biaryls and the analogous indoline derivatives is particularly challenging, and methods for their efficient synthesis are in high demand. Transition-metal catalysis is considered one of the most efficient methods to construct atropisomers. Here we report the enantioselective synthesis of C7-indolino- and C7-indolo biaryl atropisomers by means of C–H functionalisation catalysed by chiral RhJasCp complexes.

Abstract:
Density functional theory studies of bridge-splitting of [PtIIR2(SEt2)]2 (R = 4-tolyl) by bromoarenes containing nitrogen donor groups, subsequent intramolecular coordination assisted oxidative addition, and reductive elimination elucidate the mechanism for formation of mer-PtII(N,C,N)Br pincers via PtIV, where the pincers have applications in fundamental and applied chemistry. While the research covers the breaking of bridges, it has built a collaborative bridge between Utrecht and Hobart that has stood for over 30 years.

Abstract:
A tale of mirrors: Bioisosteres are molecules resulting from the exchange of atoms or moieties with a functionally similar alternative to create a new molecule with similar biological properties to the parent compound. They could be described as an “imperfect” reflection in the mirror and are ubiquitous in medicinal chemistry. Though almost identical, their synthesis often implies very different routes and starting materials. In their Communication, F. H. Lutter and M. Jouffroy describe a mild and functional-group-tolerant synthesis of (hetero)aryl alkynes from the corresponding carboxylic acids toward the synthesis of triazole bioisosters.
