Aliphatic C–H activation with aluminium trichloride–acetyl chloride: expanding the scope of the Baddeley reaction for the functionalisation of saturated hydrocarbonsThis week’s front cover highlights the work of Simon E. Lewis and colleagues at the University of Bath who demonstrate the applicability of Baddeley’s “aliphatic Friedel–Crafts” procedure to a range of saturated hydrocarbon substrates, and discuss its mechanism with the aid of DFT modelling data.

Benzofuran and indole synthesis via Cu(I)-catalyzed coupling of N-tosylhydrazone and o-hydroxy or o-amino phenylacetyleneOn the inside front cover is the work of Lei Zhou and co-workers at Sun Yat-Sen University who describe a general synthesis of 2-substituted benzofurans and indoles through a CuBr-catalyzed coupling–allenylation–cyclization sequence.
