The borylation of cyclopropanes catalyzed by the combination of (η(6)-mes)IrBpin3 or [Ir(COD)OMe]2 and a phenanthroline derivative is reported. The borylation occurs selectively at the methylene C-H bonds of the cyclopropane ring over methine or methyl C-H bonds. High diasteroselectivities were...

We report herein a novel luminescent iridium(III) complex with two hydrophobic carbon chains as a non-reaction based chemosensor for the detection of Hg(2+) ions in aqueous solution (<0.002% of organic solvent attributed to the probe solution). Upon the addition of...

Five iridium(III) complexes with two N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands and an ancillary ligand have been designed and successfully synthesized. With multicolor photoluminescence and low toxicity, these carbene complexes were tested, for the first time, as living cell imaging reagents and...

The first α-alkylation of unactivated amides with primary alcohols is described. An effective and robust iridium pincer complex has been developed for selective α-alkylation of tertiary and secondary acetamides involving a "borrowing hydrogen" methodology. The method is compatible with alcohols...
