Check Digit Verification of cas no

The CAS Registry Mumber 577-16-2 includes 6 digits separated into 3 groups by hyphens. The first part of the number,starting from the left, has 3 digits, 5,7 and 7 respectively; the second part has 2 digits, 1 and 6 respectively.
Calculate Digit Verification of CAS Registry Number 577-16:
82 % 10 = 2
So 577-16-2 is a valid CAS Registry Number.

Selective Activation of Unstrained C(O)-C Bond in Ketone Suzuki-Miyaura Coupling Reaction Enabled by Hydride-Transfer Strategy

Zhong, Jing,Zhou, Wuxin,Yan, Xufei,Xia, Ying,Xiang, Haifeng,Zhou, Xiangge

supporting information, p. 1372 - 1377 (2022/02/23)

A Rh(I)-catalyzed ketone Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction of benzylacetone with arylboronic acid is developed. Selective C(O)-C bond activation, which employs aminopyridine as a temporary directing group and ethyl vinyl ketone as a hydride acceptor, occurs on the alkyl chain containing a β-position hydrogen. A series of acetophenone products were obtained in yields up to 75%.

Photo-induced oxidative cleavage of C-C double bonds for the synthesis of biaryl methanoneviaCeCl3catalysis

Xie, Pan,Xue, Cheng,Du, Dongdong,Shi, SanShan

supporting information, p. 6781 - 6785 (2021/08/20)

A Ce-catalyzed strategy is developed to produce biaryl methanonesviaphotooxidative cleavage of C-C double bonds at room temperature. This reaction is performed under air and demonstrates high activity as well as functional group tolerance. A synergistic Ce/ROH catalytic mechanism is also proposed based on the experimental observations. This protocol should be the first successful Ce-catalyzed photooxidation reaction of olefins with air as the oxidant, which would provide inspiration for the development of novel Ce-catalyzed photochemical synthesis processes.

Visible-Light-Driven Oxidative Cleavage of Alkenes Using Water-Soluble CdSe Quantum Dots

Li, Jianing,Zhao, Jingnan,Ma, Cunfei,Yu, Zongyi,Zhu, Hongfei,Yun, Lei,Meng, Qingwei

, p. 4985 - 4992 (2021/10/16)

The oxidative cleavage of C=C bonds is an important chemical reaction, which is a popular reaction in the photocatalytic field. However, high catalyst-loading and low turnover number (TON) are general shortcomings in reported visible-light-driven reactions. Herein, the direct oxidative cleavage of C=C bonds through water-soluble CdSe quantum dots (QDs) is described under visible-light irradiation at room temperature with high TON (up to 3.7×104). Under the same conditions, water-soluble CdSe QDs could also oxidize sulfides to sulfoxides with 51–84 % yields and TONs up to 3.4×104. The key features of this photocatalytic protocol include high TONs, wide substrates scope, low catalyst loadings, simple and mild reaction conditions, and molecular O2 as the oxidant.
