Plan of attack: b-Lactam antibiotics
remain at the forefront of the battle with
pathogenic bacteria, particularly of Gramnegative strains that cause hospitalacquired infections. Metallo-b-lactamases, enzymes that confer resistance to
almost all b-lactams, are spreading in
these organisms. A new class of irreversible metallo-b-lactamase inhibitor (OPS;
see picture) offers hope for the development of countermeasures to this growing
clinical problem.

Natural Products Synthesis
Diverse structures and biological activities are shown by polyyne natural products (such as the compounds shown,
isolated fron Anacyclus pyrethrum).
Although some polyynes can be assembled with relative ease, most present a
considerable synthetic challenge because
of either a highly conjugated and unstable
framework or stereochemical considerations. Recent strategies for the synthesis
of these fascinating molecules are

Borylene Complexes
Naked boron: Reaction of the bromoborylene complex [(h5-C5Me5)(OC)Fe(m-CO)(m-BBr)Pt(PCy3)Br] with [M(PCy3)2]
(M = Pd, Pt) leads to complexes featuring
the unprecedented coordination of one
boron atom to three transition-metal
centers (see picture). According to structural and DFT studies, the new compounds are best described as metalloborylene complexes stabilized by transition-metal bases.

Designed inhibitors (like 1) of IspF, a key
enzyme in the non-mevalonate pathway
for terpene biosynthesis and a potential
antimalarial target, were synthesized and
evaluated. Since fluorescent probes were
introduced in these ligands, their affinity
towards IspF from E. coli could be determined by fluorescence titrations. The
binding modes of two ligands in ternary
complexes with IspF and a ZnII ion were
clarified by X-ray analysis.

The thermal transition of a thermoresponsive microgel of poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (PNIPAM; transition temperature = 34 8C) is shifted to higher temperatures when it is embedded in a shell
of temperature-sensitive poly-N-isopropylmethacrylamide (PNIPMAM; transition temperature = 44 8C). The magnitude
of the shift depends on the shell/core
mass ratio. A thick shell induces a third
transition arising from strong mechanical
forces exerted on the core.
Hybrid clusters: Reductive cleavage of a
novel dimeric closo-heteroborate (see picture; Sn blue, B green, H white), which
was characterized by NMR spectroscopy
and X-ray crystallography, provides a route
to 1,2-distanna-closo-dodecaborate.

Spectroscopic Characterization of
Reaction Intermediates in a Model for
Copper Nitrite Reductase
A nitrous acid complex was identified by
spectroscopic and kinetic analyses under
stopped-flow conditions as an intermediate in the reaction of copper(i) nitrite
complex 1 with trifluoroacetic acid (see
scheme). A reaction mechanism was
proposed in which two protons are transferred in a stepwise manner to the nitrite
anion. Intramolecular electron transfer
from copper to the nitrite ligand occurs in
the second protonation step.
Split and run: A study of the asymmetric
hydrogenolysis of an aryl-carbon–bromine
bond in a naphthalene chromiumtricarbonyl complex shows the use of a new
bulky phosphoramidite ligand to yield the
product in highly enantiomerically enriched form (see scheme).

proposed based on the hemilabile nature
of the PNN ligand which allows a vacant
site to be created by decoordination of the
CH2NEt2 arm.
Benign belts: Single-crystalline gold
nanobelts (see SEM image) can be synthesized by ultrasound irradiation of an
aqueous solution of HAuCl4 containing ad-glucose as a biological directing agent.
The gold nanobelts are typically 30–50 nm
wide and several micrometers long. The
method is simple, rapid, and avoids
hazardous substances.
Metal in the middle: Uniform, spherical,
core–shell aggregates (100 20 nm; see
picture) are obtained by photodecomposition of [Pd(PPh3)4] to form the metal
core, followed by aggregation of smaller
Pd nanocrystals and free phosphanes,
produced by thermal decomposition of
the remaining precursor, around this core.
Prolonged irradiation or thermal decomposition alone yields only the core structure or the shell structure, respectively.
This enables the nanoparticle structure to
be tuned.

A Biomimetic Chromanol Cyclization
Leading to a-Tocopherol
Vitamin E synthesis: Covalently linked
dipeptides serve as readily removable and
recyclable chiral auxiliaries in the diastereoselective cyclization of phytylhydroqui-
nones. Depending on the chirality of the
handle, (2R)- or (2S)-a-tocopherol (vitamin E) can be produced with a diastereomeric excess of up to 80 % (see scheme).
Efficient communication: The first porphyrin-photosensitizer-containing biomimetic model for the active site of Feonly hydrogenases has been synthesized
and structurally characterized (see picture). Its fluorescence spectrum reveals
that an efficient electronic communication occurs between the porphyrin unit
and the covalently linked diiron–azadithiolate moiety.

The Molecular Origin of the “Continuous”
Infrared Absorption in Aqueous Solutions
of Acids: A Computational Approach
The origin of the continuum region
(ñ = 1000–3000 cm 1) in the IR absorption spectra of solutions of strong acids is
well understood, but in weak acids, it has
remained a mystery until now. An ab initio
molecular dynamics approach is used to
explain the molecular origin of this continuum for aqueous solutions of the weak
acid HF and identify the structure and
chemical nature of the dominant species
(see picture).

oligonucleotide strands without any
