Carbon monoxide (CO) produced in many large-scale industrial oxidation processes is difficult to separate from nitrogen (N2), and afterward, CO is further oxidized to carbon dioxide. Here, we report a soft nanoporous crystalline material that selectively adsorbs CO with adaptable...

Lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs) exhibit a mononuclear copper-containing active site and use dioxygen and a reducing agent to oxidatively cleave glycosidic linkages in polysaccharides. LPMOs represent a unique paradigm in carbohydrate turnover and exhibit synergy with hydrolytic enzymes in biomass...

A method has been developed for the preparation of N-alkynylated sulfoximines involving the copper-catalyzed decarboxylative coupling of sulfoximines with aryl propiolic acids. A range of substituents on both the sulfoximidoyl moiety and the aryl group of the propiolic acid were...

A rapid and environmentally friendly conversion of pyridine to imidazo[1,2-a]pyridines has been developed via copper-catalyzed aerobic dehydrogenative cyclization with ketone oxime esters.

Heavy metals in cells are typically regulated by PIB-type ATPases. The first structure of the class, a Cu(+)-ATPase from Legionella pneumophila (LpCopA), outlined a copper transport pathway across the membrane, which was inferred to be occluded. Here we show by...
