Herein, we report the first decarboxylative hydroxylation to synthesize phenols from benzoic acids at 35°C via photoinduced ligand-to-metal charge transfer (LMCT)-enabled radical decarboxylative carbometalation. The aromatic decarboxylative hydroxylation is synthetically promising due to its mild conditions, broad substrate scope, and late-stage ap...

We developed a polymer-encapsulated DNase, n(DNase), which can efficiently accumulate in biofilm and expose the DNase to cleave the eDNA of biofilm. CLSM and crystal violet results demonstrated an effective...

Herein, we report a two-step process forming arene C-O bonds in excellent site-selectivity at a late-stage. The C-O bond formation is achieved by selective introduction of a thianthrenium group, which is then converted into C-O bonds using photoredox chemistry. Electron-rich, -poor and -neutral arenes as well as complex drug-like small molecules ar...

Effiziente Diversifizierung: Die erste regioselektive, spät anwendbare C-O-Bindungsbildung aus Aren-C-H-Bindungen verläuft in zwei Stufen über Arylthianthrenium-Zwischenprodukte. Elektronenreiche, elektronenarme und elektroneutrale Arene sowie komplexe, wirkstoffähnliche, niedermolekulare Verbindungen lassen sich in Phenole und verschiedene Ether u...

... Biofilm dispersal is part of the biofilm cycle ( Figure 1) that involves a programmed bacterial response of matrix disruption and bacterial signalling programs [26,27 ]. Biofilm disruption is achieved via matrix degrading enzymes such as nucleases that can degrade extracellular DNA [28] and proteases that degrade scaffold proteins and poly- shows promise. AMPs and cationic peptide polymers can synergize with antibiotics to achieve lower antibiotic minimum inhibitory concentrations and higher clearance rate when targeting different pathways. ...
... As carbon is more stable and common in complex compounds, its oxygenation reactions have become a research hotspot. Industrial-scale C-H and C=C oxygenation is achieved through the Hock process [3], Dakin oxidation [4] cooperated with Vilsmeier-Haack formylation [5], and various transition metal-catalyzed reactions [6], including C-O bond formation promoted by palladium [7], Sandmeyer hydroxylation [8], and Chan-Lam couplings [9]. Most C-H and C=C oxygenation reactions are performed on molecules with specific functional groups that can be transformed into -oxy substituents, such as aryl halides [10] and aryl thianthrenium salts [3]. ...
