New Flow procedure for the preparation and reactions of organomagnessium reagents

JANSSEN S. A. and MSOC group have reported in Org. Let. a new procedure for the preparation of highly pure organomagnessium reagents on demand and the use in flow and/or batch.

Modulation of the exfoliated graphene work function through cycloaddition of nitrile imines

After the feasibility of the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction between nitrile imines and exfoliated graphene by density functional theory calculations was proved, very few-layer graphene was effectively functionalized using this procedure. Hydrazones with different electronic properties were used as precursors for the 1,3-dipoles, and microwave irradiation as an energy source enabled the reaction to be performed … Continue reading

Computational Calculations in Microwave-Assisted Organic Synthesis (MAOS). Application to Cycloaddition Reactions.

Computational calculations represent a very useful tool to study separately the ocurrence of thermal and non-thermal effects of microwave irradiation through the determination of the thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of the reaction. In this paper, we approach the computational study of two previously reported cycloaddition reactions. All of the outcomes indicate the presence of a … Continue reading

Review paper on poly(1H-pyrazol-1-yl)methanes

A new revier paper has been published in Coord. Chem. Rev. on the organic chemistry of poly(1H-pyrazol-1-yl)methanes. The synthesis, reactivity, and nature of the coordinated metals are described along with some properties of these compounds, particularly the complete set of X-ray molecular structures.

An article of the group elected as cover in a special issue on Flow Chemistry

A paper on the Reformatsky and Blaise reaction in Flow in collaboration with JANSSEN, S.A. has been published in a special issue of Green Chemsitry on Flow chemistry and has been elected as the cover of the issue.

Network of excellence on NMR

The MSOC by means of Dr. Mª Victoria Gómez Almagro participates in the network of excellence project “Thematic network on NMR spectroscopy”. This is a project with the participation of 10 laboratories in Spain and with a multidiscilplinar and international approach.  

Review on the use of NMR spectroscopy in flow chemistry

This review show the recent advances in the use of flow chemistry with in-line and on-line analysis by NMR. It cover from the use macro- and, microreactors, standard and custom made NMR probes involving microcoils, high resolution and benchtop NMR instruments and the use of DOE and automatic reaction monitoring and automatization. Selected applications have been collected … Continue reading

Book chapter on flow Chemistry

A new book chapter on the use of non-conventional techniques in sustainable chematry under flow conditions has been published by our group. The chapter it is included in the book Sustainable Flow Chemistry – Chapter 9. Methods and Applications.  Edited by L. Vaccaro and published by Wiley-VCH.

New review on computational calculations and microwave irradiation

This review, published in Chem. Soc. Rev., provides an overview of the use of Computational Chemistry in MAOS to provide a theoretical understanding of the factors that can be used to explain the improvements in MAOS and how computational calculations can be used as a predictive tool.

New book chapter on Microwaves in Green Chemistry

Since the first publications on the use of microwave irradiation in synthetic chemistry, it was clear that this methodology would have a marked influence in all areas of this discipline. Reduction of reaction times, improved yields, modifications of selectivities, increased product purities and simplification of work-up procedures were described and, in most cases, these conditions … Continue reading
