The Potential of Micellar Media in the Synthesis of DNA-Encoded Libraries, Réka Adamik, Balázs Buchholcz, Ferenc Darvas, Gellért Sipos, Zoltán Novák, Chem. Eur. J. 2022, 28, e202103967. DOI: 10.1002/chem.202103967 | [Full Text Link]

DNA-encoded libraries (DELs) have become a widely used technology in drug discovery. The use of micelle-forming surfactants provides new possibilities for synthetic organic chemistry and could be a promising technique for DNA-compatible chemistry as well. This review provides a summary of existing examples of micellar DEL approaches, together with a selection of micellar organic transformations fundamentally suitable for DEL synthesis.

Z-Selective Fluoroalkenylation of (Hetero)Aromatic Systems by Iodonium Reagents in Palladium-Catalyzed Directed C-H Activation, Balázs L. Tóth, Gergő Sályi, Attila Domján, Orsolya Egyed, Attila Bényei, Zsombor Gonda, Zoltán Novák, Adv. Synth. Catal. 2022, 364, 348-354. DOI: 10.1002/adsc.202101108 | [Full Text Link] [Supp. Info. Link]

The direct and catalytic incorporation of fluorine containing molecular motifs into organic compounds resulting high-value added chemicals represents a rapidly evolving part of synthetic methodologies, thus this area is in the focus of pharmaceutical and agrochemical research. Herein we report a stereoselective procedure for direct fluorovinylation of aromatic and heteroaromatic scaffolds. This methodology development has been realized by palladium-catalyzed ortho C-H activation reaction of aniline derivatives featuring the regioselectivity via directing groups such as secondary of tertiary amides, ureas or ketones. The application of non-symmetrical aryl(fluoroalkenyl)-iodonium salts as fluoroalkenylating agents allowed mild reaction conditions in general for this transformation. The scope and limitations have been thoroughly investigated and the feasibility has been demonstrated by more than 50 examples.
