corn chowder with chile, lime and cotija

by deb

I evicted a longtime resident of my To Cook list this week with this corn chowder. I have no argument with traditional corn chowder — it has cream, bacon, and potatoes and thus would be impossible not to love as soup or salad — but I adore to the point of boring everyone around me with my gushing, Mexican-style corn either elote-style (on the the cob rolled in butter, mayo, lime juice and coated with salty crumbled cotija cheese and chile powder or a chile-lime seasoning blend) or esquites-style (all of the above, but in a cup). This corn chowder attempts to celebrate the best of both.

I started with a classic corn chowder using whole and blended fresh kernels, onion, garlic, milk, and cream but added some jalapeño and chili powder for flavor and used cooked black and small red beans instead of potatoes for bulk. Then, right before you eat it, because I am fully of the conviction that finishes are what make a soup, you make a rich street corn-like dressing with mayo, sour cream, cheese, and lime and dollop it right into the center of the soup. Squeeze more lime all over, shake on some chili powder and finish it with fresh cilantro and, if you’re not sure you’ve gilded the lily enough (or, perhaps, have children still viewing this meal skeptically), bake some corn tortilla wedges into chips.

Carboxylation of Aromatic and Aliphatic Bromides and Triflates with CO2 by Dual Visible Light - Nickel Catalysis

by Qing-Yuan Meng, Shun Wang, Burkhard König

We report the efficient carboxylation of bromides and triflates with K₂CO₃ as the source of CO₂ using an organic photocatalyst in combination with a nickel complex under visible light irradiation at room temperature. The reaction is compatible with a variety of functional groups and has been successfully applied to the synthesis and derivatization of biologically active molecules. Particularly, the carboxylation of unactivated cyclic bromides proceeds well under our protocol extending the scope of this transformation. Spectroscopic and spectroelectrochemical investigations indicate the generation of a Ni(0) species as catalytic reactive intermediate.

Synthesis of Diverse Phenalenyl-Fused Pyrylium Cations via Divergent Cascade C-H Activation/Annulations of Naphthalene Aldehydes with Alkynes

by Jingsong You, Jiangliang Yin, Meiling Tan, Di Wu, Ruyong Jiang, Chengming Li

Herein we establish, for the first time, a straightforward access to stable oxonium-doped polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) through the rhodium-catalyzed cascade C-H activation/annulations of naphthalene-type aldehydes with internal alkynes. This protocol provides four divergent reaction types (categorized as IA, IB, IIA and IIB), including two unexpected annulations with an oxygen transposition process, which lead to diverse types of phenalenyl-fused pyrylium cations comprising a four, five or six-ring-fused π-conjugated core. The annulations exhibit an exquisite regioselectivity and a high tolerance of sensitive functional groups. These PAHs feature the intriguing photophysical properties such as full-color tunable fluorescence emission, high quantum yield and positively charged core, and can be reduced easily to the phenalenyl radicals.

Synthetic Organic Electrochemistry: Calling All Engineers

by Ming Yan, Yu Kawamata, Phil S. Baran

Unmet Potential. Electrochemistry is the most simple and basic way of altering the redox-states of organic molecules. Despite extensive studies and its demonstrated promise, it has yet to take off in mainstream synthesis. The reason, we argue, is due to engineering challenges in instrument design.

Electrochemically Enabled, Ni-Catalyzed Amination

by Chao Li, Yu Kawamata, Hugh Nakamura, Julien C. Vantourout, Zhiqing Liu, Qinglong Hou, Denghui Bao, Jeremy T. Starr, Jinshan Chen, Ming Yan, Phil S. Baran

Along with amide bond formation, Suzuki cross-coupling, and reductive amination, the Buchwald-Hartwig-Ullman type amination of aryl halides stands as one of the most employed reactions in modern medicinal chemistry. This Communication demonstrates the potential of utilizing electrochemistry to provide a complementary avenue to access such critical bonds using an inexpensive nickel catalyst under mild conditions. Of note is the scalability, functional group tolerance, rapid rate, and the ability to employ a variety of aryl donors (Ar-Cl, Ar-Br, Ar-I, Ar-OTf), amine types (primary and secondary), and even alternative X-H donors (alcohols and amides).
