In their Communication on page 12194 ff., M. A. Petrukhina et al. describe pentadecker sandwich complexes with a Li–alkoxo core between corannulene bowls. These supramolecular aggregates may be useful for Li-ion-battery design.
A small-molecule inhibitor found to suppress the TLR1/TLR2-mediated inflammation response is presented by H. Yin et al. in their Communication on page 12246 ff. This compound is a valuable probe for these important signaling receptors.
In their Communication on page 12233 ff., P. Jonkheijm et al. describe a stable cucurbituril-mediated system for the preparation of noncovalent cell adhesive surfaces that can be electrochemically controlled.
