Enantioselective hydrogenation of tiglic acid effected by diastereomers of the general formula [(μ-H)2Ru3(μ3-S)(CO)7(μ-P–P*)] (P–P* = chiral Walphos diphosphine ligand) strongly supports catalysis by intact Ru3 clusters. A catalytic mechanism involving Ru3 clusters has been established by DFT calculations.

Asymmetric hydrogenation of an α-unsaturated carboxylic acid catalyzed by intact chiral transition metal carbonyl cluster : diastereomeric control of enantioselectivity Abdel-Magied, Ahmed F.; Theibich, Yusuf; Singh, Amrendra K.; Rahaman, Ahibur; Doverbratt, Isa; Raha, Arun K.; Haukka, Matti; Richmond, Michael G.; Nordlander, Ebbe (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020)Twenty clusters of the general formula [(μ-H)2Ru3(μ3-S)(CO)7(μ-P–P*)] (P–P* = chiral diphosphine of the ferrocene-based Walphos or Josiphos families) have been synthesised and characterised. The clusters have been tested ...
Mammen, Nisha; Malola, Sami; Honkala, Karoliina; Häkkinen, Hannu (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2022)The catalytic partial hydrogenation of α,β-unsaturated aldehydes is an ideal reaction to understand the selectivity between two different functional groups Here the two functional groups are C═C and C═O, and the hydrogenation ...
Vasko, Petra; Wang, Shuai; Tuononen, Heikki; Power, Philip P. (Wiley - VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2015)Reaction of the tin cluster Sn8(Arinline image)4 (Arinline image=C6H2-2,6-(C6H3-2,4,6-Me3)2) with excess ethylene or dihydrogen at 25 °C/1 atmosphere yielded two new clusters that incorporated ethylene or hydrogen. The ...
Hydrogen Bond Fluctuations Control Photochromism in a Reversibly Photo-Switchable Fluorescent Protein Morozov, Dmitry; Groenhof, Gerrit (Wiley - VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2016)Reversibly switchable fluorescent proteins (RSFPs) are essential for high-resolution microscopy of biological samples, but the reason why these proteins are photochromic is still poorly understood. To address this problem, ...
Enhanced Surface Ligands Reactivity of Metal Clusters by Bulky Ligands for Controlling Optical and Chiral Properties Deng, Guocheng; Malola, Sami; Yuan, Peng; Liu, Xianhu; Teo, Boon K.; Häkkinen, Hannu; Zheng, Nanfeng (Wiley, 2021)Surface ligands play critical roles in determining the surface properties of metal clusters. However, modulating the properties and controlling the surface structure of clusters through surface‐capping agent displacement ...
