An efficient route to highly strained cyclobutenes: indium-catalyzed reactions of enynals with alkynes

16 March, 2015 - 02:54

Chem. Commun., 2015, 51,5530-5533
DOI: 10.1039/C4CC08506J, CommunicationRenxiao Liang, Huanfeng Jiang, Shifa Zhu
A catalytic method to synthesize the highly strained cyclobutene was developed. The reaction was believed to proceed through a formal indium-catalyzed [2+2] cycloaddition between electron-deficient enynals and a variety of alkynes.

Ethanol induces the formation of water-permeable defects in model bilayers of skin lipids

16 March, 2015 - 02:54

Chem. Commun., 2015, 51,5406-5409
DOI: 10.1039/C4CC08527B, CommunicationR. Thind, D. W. O'Neill, A. Del Regno, R. Notman
We observe that ethanol can induce the formation of water-permeable defects in model bilayers of skin lipids and propose this as a new mechanism of action of ethanol as a membrane modulator.
