Dichotomy of Atom-Economical Hydrogen-Free Reductive Amidation vs Exhaustive Reductive Amination
Organic Letters. 2017. Vol. 19. No. 20. P. 5657-5660.
Chusov D., Muratov K., Usanov D., Kolesnikov P.
Rh-catalyzed one-step reductive amidation of aldehydes has been developed. The protocol does not require an external hydrogen source and employs carbon monoxide as a deoxygenative agent. The direction of the reaction can be altered simply by changing the solvent: reaction in THF leads to amides, whereas methanol favors formation of tertiary amines.

Adsorption of molecular oxygen on the Ag(111) surface: A combined temperature-programmed desorption and scanning tunneling microscopy study
, , et al., Journal of Chemical Physics 2018 Vol. 148 No. 24 Article 244702
The adsorption of O-2 on Ag(111) between 300 and 500 K has been studied with temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). At the first stage of adsorption, the disordered local oxide phase (commonly looking in STM as an array of black spots) is formed on the surface irrespective of the substrate temperature. The maximum concentration of black spots was found to be approximate to 0.11 ML, which corresponds to an oxygen coverage of approximate to 0.66 ML. Taking into account that the nucleation of the Ag(111)-p(4 x 4)-O phase starts after the saturation of the disordered phase, one ...
