Applications of Rozen’s Reagent in Oxygen-Transfer and C–H Activation Reactions
Kuldeep Singh *, Kulbir Kulbir, Tarang Gupta, Rajneesh Kaur, Raman Singh
Rozen’s reagent (hypofluorous acid–acetonitrile complex, HOF·MeCN) is a robust nonspecific oxygen-transfer reagent and became a proven tool for the oxidation of difficult-to-oxidize molecules. It has been applied to instant oxygen transfers to functional groups such as alkenes, alkynes, and aromatic hydrocarbons, epoxidation, oxidation of alcohols, amines, and alkynes, oxygen-transfer reactions with nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur-containing substrates, and α-hydroxylation of carbonyl groups. Apart from being a potential green oxidizing agent, the complex has applications in 18O-labeling and C–H functionalization strategies. Recent uses of Rozen’s reagent in developing nanomaterials and oxidized expanded graphite indicate the enormous potential of the reagent.
IUPAC Atropisomers is defined as following A subclass of conformers which can be isolated as separate chemical species and which arise from restricted rotation about a single bond, e.g. ortho-substituted biphenyl, 1,1,2,2-tetra-tert-butylethane. The word atropisomer is derived from the Greek a, meaning not, and tropos, meaning turn. The name was coined by Kuhn in 1933, but atropisomerism was first detected in 6,6’-dinitro-2,2’-diphenic acid by Cristie in 1922. References:

Nomenclature of Inorganic ChemistryIUPAC Recommendations 2005
This new edition of the ‘Red Book’ clarifies and updates recommendations concerning the names and formulae of inorganic compounds and reflects major recent developments in inorganic chemistry. Moreover, it presents recommendations fully consistent with the principles of the nomenclature of organic chemistry. In order to choose the most appropriate of the various nomenclature systems described, a flowchart is provided to guide the reader to a section or chapter where rules can be found for a particular type of compound or species. Copious examples are supplemented by an extensive subject index.
