This review describes our recent efforts in the development of chiral dinuclear vanadium complexes which work as dual activation catalysts for oxidative coupling of 2-naphthols. A chiral dinuclear vanadium(IV) complex (R(a),S,S)-1a possessing (S)-tert-leucine moieties at the 3,3'-positions of the (R)-binaphthyl...

Nature has developed an exquisite array of methods to introduce halogen atoms into organic compounds. Most of these enzymes are oxidative and require either hydrogen peroxide or molecular oxygen as a cosubstrate to generate a reactive halogen atom for catalysis....

In the present focused review, vanadate-dependent haloperoxidases and vanadate-inhibited enzymes which catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphoester bonds are addressed. In these systems, vanadate [HxVO4](3-x)(-) is covalently coordinated to the imidazolyl moiety of an active site histidine, with a geometrical arrangement...

A series of bulky end-capped benzothieno[3,2-b]benzothiophenes (BTBTs) are developed in order to tune the packing structure via terminal substitution. A coupled theoretical and experimental study allows us to identify 2,7-di-tert-butylBTBT as a new high-performance organic semiconductor with large and well-balanced...
