    1. Cover Picture: Silica-Based Mesoporous Organic–Inorganic Hybrid Materials (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 20/2006) (page 3187)

      Frank Hoffmann, Maximilian Cornelius, Jürgen Morell and Michael Fröba

      Version of Record online: 5 MAY 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200690070

      Like Honeycomb is how the pore structures of silica-based mesoporous organic–inorganic hybrid materials often appear. In the Review on page 3216 ff., M. Fröba and co-workers give an overview of their preparation. The cover picture shows hybrids whose pores are functionalized with cyclam (ligand), sulforhodamine B (laser die), and a cinchona derivative (for heterogeneous asymmetric catalysis). Particular attention is given to the class of periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs).

      Going without: Alcohols can be oxidized with oxygen and without transition-metal complexes (see scheme; TEMPO=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-N-oxide). Conventional methods are compared with new catalytic variants developed for this reaction and for the complete oxidation of pollutants with regard to sustainability.

    4. Not Unhydrolyzed at pH 8 (pages 3212–3214)

      Xaver Kästele, Peter Klüfers and Reinhold Tacke

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200503534

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Contrary to a recent claim that the zwitterionic bis(diolato)silicate 1 exhibits remarkable hydrolytic stability at pH 7–8, a closer look at 29Si and 13C NMR spectroscopic data of 1 under various conditions (solvent, pH, concentration) reveals that hydrolysis products are the predominant species in solution.

    5. Silica-Based Mesoporous Organic–Inorganic Hybrid Materials (pages 3216–3251)

      Frank Hoffmann, Maximilian Cornelius, Jürgen Morell and Michael Fröba

      Version of Record online: 5 MAY 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200503075

      Pores for thought: The modification of mesoporous silica phases with organic components extends this class of materials and their potential application in areas such as the production of insulators in the chip industry. Periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs) occupy a special position in this respect, as the organic component is an integral part of the framework. The figure shows a PMO with a crystal-like structure of the pore wall.

    6. An Approach To Prepare Membrane Proteins for Single-Molecule Imaging (pages 3252–3256)

      Observed from above: A cysteine mutation in a membrane protein enables it to be fixed in a defined orientation on flat gold surfaces (see picture, left). Subsequent coassembly with thiolipids produces clearly defined, immobilized proteins. Analysis by atomic force microscopy provides topographs of similar quality to those revealed from 2D crystals.

    7. Total Synthesis of Abyssomicin C and atrop-Abyssomicin C (pages 3256–3260)

      K. C. Nicolaou and Scott T. Harrison

      Version of Record online: 24 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200601116

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Into the abyss: A total synthesis of abyssomicin C (1) through a metathesis-based strategy offers a highly convergent approach to the construction of analogues. A novel and potent atropisomer of the natural product 1 was thus discovered, namely atrop-abyssomicin C (2), which reveals subtle yet important structural differences to 1 (see structures; O red, C gray, H white).

    8. Evolution of Nano- to Microsized Spherical Assemblies of a Short Oligo(p-phenyleneethynylene) into Superstructured Organogels (pages 3261–3264)

      Ayyppanpillai Ajayaghosh, Reji Varghese, Vakayil K. Praveen and Sankarapillai Mahesh

      Version of Record online: 18 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200600256

      Wires to particles: A subtle balance of H-bonding, π-stacking, and van der Waals interactions facilitates the concentration-controlled self-assembly of a short molecular wire (see figure) into nanoparticles and fluorescent microspheres in nonpolar hydrocarbon solvents. Above a critical concentration, a blue-light emitting organogel is formed.

    9. Synthesis of a Rhodaazacyclopropane and Characterization of Its Radical Cation by EPR Spectroscopy (pages 3265–3269)

      Pascal Maire, Anandaram Sreekanth, Torsten Büttner, Jeffrey Harmer, Igor Gromov, Heinz Rüegger, Frank Breher, Arthur Schweiger and Hansjörg Grützmacher

      Version of Record online: 18 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200504382

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Rh steps into the ring: The radical cation shown is best described as a rhodaazacyclopropane (A) rather than as a RhI iminium ion complex (B). EPR and DFT data indicate that the delocalization of the unpaired electron into the ligand framework contributes to the stability of A (see plot of the singly occupied molecular orbital).

    10. A (Tetrasilacyclobutadiene)tricarbonyliron Complex [{η4-(tBu2MeSi)4Si4}Fe(CO)3]: The Silicon Cousin of Pettit's (Cyclobutadiene)tricarbonyliron Complex [(η4-H4C4)Fe(CO)3] (pages 3269–3272)

      Unmasking the truth: The dimer [{(μ2-PNP)Co}2] (Co light blue, N dark blue, P green, C gray, only one carbon atom of the isopropyl groups shown; PNP=[N{2-P(CHMe2)2-4-MeC6H3}2]) contains a Co2N2 diamond core and bridging PNP ligands. Upon reaction with ClCPh3, CO, or N2, rearrangement of the PNP ligands to a terminal chelating mode is observed to give four-coordinate Co complexes such as [{(PNP)Co}22-N2)].

    16. Solid-Phase Enzyme Activity Assay Utilizing an Entrapped Fluorescence-Signaling DNA Aptamer (pages 3295–3299)

      Nicholas Rupcich, Razvan Nutiu, Yingfu Li and John D. Brennan

      Version of Record online: 18 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200504576

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Layered enzyme assays: The use of a layered sol-gel based material allows for spatial separation of coimmobilized enzyme and fluorescent aptamer reporter species. This provides a route for facile assaying of enzyme activity and inhibition in cases where the aptamer signals the presence of the enzyme substrate. This then results in accurate IC50 determinations.

    17. Towards Clean Fuels: Molecular-Level Sulfur Reactivity in Heavy Oils (pages 3299–3303)

      Tushar V. Choudhary, Jim Malandra, John Green, Stephen Parrott and Byron Johnson

      Lights, camera, action! Photoswitchable nucleoside analogues containing o-, m-, or p-azobenzenes can be inserted in the catalytic core of RNA-cleaving 10–23 deoxyribozymes by replacing a nonconserved residue (see picture). Irradiation of the modified deoxyribozymes at 366 nm enhances RNA cleavage rates up to ninefold, thus achieving the rates observed for the unmodified deoxyribozyme.

      Naoko Nishina and Yoshinori Yamamoto

      Version of Record online: 18 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200600331

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Au contraire! Contrary to the relatively well-studied metal-catalyzed intramolecular hydroamination of allenes, the intermolecular reaction is rare and is here accomplished with a gold(III) catalyst. Aryl amines 2 react with chiral allenes 1 in the presence of AuBr3 at ambient temperature to produce chiral allylamines 3 (Ar=Ph; o-, m-, p-CH3C6H4) in good yields with high ee values.

      Version of Record online: 18 APR 2006 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.200600364

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Catalytic cornerstone: Lanthanide(III) complexes of a lacunary Dawson-type polyoxometalate catalyze Lewis acid mediated reactions (see figure, TMS=trimethylsilyl). The compounds (NBu4)5H21-Ln(H2O)4P2W17O61] (Ln=Yb, Sm, Eu, La) are much more chemoselective than the lanthanide triflates. Furthermore, the polyoxotungstic framework can play a role, presumably through H-bonding to the substrates.
