Deprotonated 2-thiolimidazole serves as a metal-free electrocatalyst for selective acetylene hydrogenation

Nature Chemistry, Published online: 19 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41557-024-01480-6Although metal-free catalysts, featuring defined active sites, represent alternatives to scarce or problematic metals, metal-free compounds rarely show activities as promising as metal-based materials. Now deprotonated 2-thiolimidazole is shown to serve as a metal-free...

A <i>para</i>- to <i>meta</i>-isomerization of phenols

Nature Chemistry, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41557-024-01512-1Phenols and their derivatives are ubiquitous in nature and important within the chemical industry. Their properties are linked to their substitution patterns, but meta-isomers are underrepresented due to the difficulty of their synthesis. Now we address this challenge by...

Stereoretentive enantioconvergent reactions

Nature Chemistry, Published online: 17 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41557-024-01504-1Enantioconvergent reactions convert both enantiomers of a racemic starting material into a single enantioenriched product. All currently known enantioconvergent processes necessitate the loss or partial loss of the racemic substrate’s stereochemical information. Now, an...
