Graphical abstract: DBU functions as a nucleophilic promoter for the activation of NIS to be a more electrophilic iodine species thus being capable of activating the epoxides. On the other hand, NIS also provides a nucleophilic nitrogen species for ring-opening of the epoxide. The combination of N-Iodosuccinimide (NIS) and DBU is developed as an efficient organocatalyst system for the cycloaddition of carbon dioxide (CO2) at atmospheric pressure with epoxides without utilization of additional solvents, forming cyclic carbonates in high yields with a broad substrate scope. DBU functions as a nucleophilic promoter for the activation of NIS to be a more electrophilic iodine species thus being capable of activating the epoxides. On the other hand, NIS also provides a nucleophilic nitrogen species, i.e. succinimide anion for ring-opening of the epoxide. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

A bifuncational catalytic system consisting of CaBr2 and 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]-undec-7-ene (DBU) was developed for the efficient fixation of CO2 with epoxides to cyclic carbonates. Such a dual catalysis facilitates the reaction to proceed smoothly at atmospheric CO2 pressure, presumably due to the simultaneous activation of CO2 by DBU and epoxides by CaBr2. In addition, the activation role of CaBr2 was also studied using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. A plausible mechanism involving the DBU-CO2 adduct-assisted ring opening path and the bromide anion-promoted ring opening path is proposed, in combination with the activation of epoxides by the calcium cation. This process represents a simple, cost-effective and biocompatible route to obtain cyclic carbonates from CO2 under mild conditions, especially at atmospheric CO2 pressure. © 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

An iron-catalyzed arylation of α-aryl-α-diazoesters with electron-rich benzene rings was developed, which provides an efficient method for the preparation of 1,1-diarylacetates with high yields and excellent chemo- and regio-selectivities. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2016.

An efficient method for the synthesis of 3a-hydroxyisoxazolo[3,2-a]isoindol-8(3aH)-ones from CO2, terminal alkynes, EtBr, and NHPI (N-hydroxyphthalimide) was developed through a tandem carboxylation/annulation strategy catalyzed by a copper(i)/phosphine system. This one-pot multicomponent reaction was conducted at atmospheric CO2 pressure to afford the target products in good to excellent yields under mild conditions. Notably, a wide range of functional groups were tolerated in this procedure. This protocol with simultaneous formation of four novel bonds i.e. two C-C bonds and two C-O bonds represents an efficient methodology for upgrading CO2 into heterocycles. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015.

An efficient approach for the stereocontrolled construction of pyrano[2,3-c]pyrazole scaffold has been developed. Under the catalysis of a bifunctional squaramide derived from (1R,2R)-1,2-diphenylethane-1,2-diamine, the asymmetric tandem Michael addition/cyclization reaction of 4-benzylidenepyrazol-5(4H)-ones and malononitrile proceeded efficiently to furnish the desired pyrano[2,3-c]pyrazoles in satisfactory yields with high levels of enantioselectivity (up to 99% ee). © 2015 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

Divergent syntheses of indolizines and 2,4-disubstituted pyrroles by the silver-catalyzed cyclization of 2-pyridyl alkynyl carbinols with isocyanides are reported. These methods provide an effective route to highly functionalized indolizines and 2,4-disubstituted pyrroles in good to excellent yields. The 2,4-disubstituted pyrroles are synthesized by an unprecedented regioselective [3+2] cycloaddition of terminal alkynes with isocyanides. © 2014 the Partner Organisations.

A series of novel N-tert-butyl-N-thio[1-(6-chloro-3-pyridylmethyl)-2- nitroiminoimidazolidine]-N,N′-diacylhydrazines were synthesized by the reaction of chlorosulfenyl(N-tert-butyl-N,N′-diacylhydrazines) with 1-(6-chloro-3-pyridylmethyl)-2-nitroiminoimidazolidine (imidacloprid) in the presence of sodium hydride. Their larvicidal activities were evaluated. All of them exhibited insecticidal activities against Oriental armyworm and bean aphids. Toxicity assays indicated that at higher concentrations (200 mg L -1) the title compounds can kill aphids as fast as the parent imidacloprid in 2 h, whereas at lower concentration (10 mg L-1), the title compounds can induce a premature, abnormal and lethal larval moult after 3 days of treatment, like the parent diacylhydrazines. ©2009 American Chemical Society.

A catalytic and highly efficient Wolff's cyclocondensation of α-diazoketones with aromatic and aliphatic amines has been realized for the first time by utilizing the strategy of an intramolecular hydrogen bonding-activating carbonyl group. This approach successfully solved the challenging problem of poor condensation efficiency in Wolff 1,2,3-triazole synthesis, and constitutes a powerful method for the synthesis of highly functionalized 1,2,3-triazoles. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2012.
