arylation azolesCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Elisabetta Rosadoni for her publication "Ligandless Palladium-Catalyzed Direct C-5 Arylation of Azoles Promoted by Benzoic Acid in Anisole" on Molecules. In this paper we report a selective C-5 arylation procedure involving anisole as an EHS green reaction solvent. In addition, the beneficial role of benzoic acid in this reaction as an additive is also highlighted. The palladium-catalyzed direct arylation of azoles with (hetero)aryl halides is nowadays one of the most versatile and efficient procedures for the selective synthesis of heterobiaryls.

acidic dessCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Marco Rollo for his scientific publication entitled "Depolymerization of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) under mild conditions by Lewis/Brønsted acidic deep eutectic solvents" in Chemical Engineering Journal. Bifunctional Lewis/Brønsted acidic DESs composed of FeCl3⋅6H2O, cheap and scarcely toxic, in combination with a variety of acids, both mineral and organic, have been prepared for PET depolymerization. LBDES formed with methanesulfonic acid and para-toluenesulfonic acid are capable of quantitatively depolymerizing PET under mild conditions, with a temperature of 100 °C and a reaction time of 1 h, affording high purity terephthalic acid in high yield.

pigment waterborneCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Alberto Picchi for his publication entitled: “Waterborne Acrylic Resin Containing Luminescent Eu3+ Pigments for Luminescent Solar Concentrators”. Promising semi-transparent thin-film LSCs are obtained by drop-casting a dispersion of a commercially available Eu3+ chelate pigment in an aqueous acrylic resin.

dalton binacchiCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Francesca Binacchi for her scientific publication entitled “A biophysical study of the interactions of palladium(II), platinum(II) and gold(III) complexes of aminopyridyl-2,2′-bipyridine ligands with RNAs and other nucleic acid structures” in Dalton Transactions. Metal compounds form an attractive class of ligands for a variety of nucleic acids. Five metal complexes bearing aminopyridyl-2,2′-bipyridine tetra dentate ligands and possessing a quasi-planar geometry were challenged toward different types of nucleic acid molecules including RNA polynucleotides in duplex or triplex form, an RNA Holliday four-way junction, natural double helix DNA and DNA G-quadruplex.

ruthenium anticancer mitochondriaCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Alberto Gobbo for his scientific publication entitled “Ruthenium (II)–Tris-pyrazolylmethane Complexes Inhibit Cancer Cell Growth by Disrupting Mitochondrial Calcium Homeostasis” in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. Studies on the medicinal potential of ruthenium complexes containing a tridentate tris(1-pyrazolyl)methane ligand are almost absent in the literature. A straightforward route to access a family of novel, robust and water-soluble cationic ruthenium(II)–tpm complexes was developed. One key ligand modulates both the amphiphilic character and the strength of the ruthenium–chloride bond, which may be implicated in the activation mechanism.

imaging chiral organic thin filmCongratulations to our Ph.D. student Andrea Taddeucci for winning one of the poster prizes at CD2022, an event organized by "New York University" (NYU) in New York. The title of his poster was "Circular Dichroism Imaging of Novel Chiral Organic Dyes in Thin Film using Diamond Light Source B23 highly collimated Synchrotron Radiation". Thin films of chiral dyes with semiconductive properties open the way to the fabrication of new generation optoelectronic devices with enhanced performances, thanks to the emission of circularly polarized light and the control of electrons' spin. Circular Dichroism (CD) Imaging technique provides preliminary information on the possibility to adopt them in the mentioned devices.
