Silver-catalysed reactions of alkynes: recent advances

25 August, 2015 - 11:17

Chem. Soc. Rev., 2015, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C5CS00027K, Review ArticleGuichun Fang, Xihe Bi
Silver is a less expensive noble metal. Superior alkynophilicity due to [small pi]-coordination with the carbon-carbon triple bond makes silver salts ideal catalysts for alkyne-based organic reactions. This critical review clearly indicates that alkyne chemistry has been greatly benefiting from the emerging "Silver Rush" and will continue to generate increasingly more synthetic possibilities in the near future.

Group 14 inorganic hydrocarbon analogues

25 August, 2015 - 11:17

Chem. Soc. Rev., 2015, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C5CS00365B, Review ArticleEric Rivard
This Review article deals with the synthesis and properties of inorganic hydrocarbon analogues: binary chemical species that contain heavier Group 14 elements (Si, Ge, Sn or Pb) and hydrogen as components. Rapid advances in our general knowledge of these species have enabled the development of industrially relevant processes such as the hydrosilylation of unsaturated substrates and the chemical vapor deposition of semi-conducting films.
