Chemical Biology Tools
Various chemical biology tools have emerged in the last decade for the elucidation of protein phosphorylation and dephosphorylation, including the use of small-molecule mimics of phosphoamino acids, activity-based protein profiling, peptide- and protein-based biosensors, and peptide and small-molecule microarrays. Recent advances in the development of these tools, as well as their applications in high-throughput screening can be found in the Concept article by S. Q. Yao et al. on page 28 ff.
NH Bond Activation Bond activation of ammonia is among the top ten challenges for contemporary catalysis in the context of olefin hydroamination and arene oxidative amination. This process and its role in CN coupling mediated in the gas phase by “bare” and ligated transition-metal ions, main-group atomic species, and cluster ions is described by H. Schwarz et al. in the Minireview on page 40 ff.
In their Full Paper on page 95 ff., C.-M. Che et al. describe the synthesis and characterization of a series of luminescent platinum(II) complexes with carbazole, fluorene or thiophene unit(s) at the periphery of the C∧N∧C ligands. The uses of these complexes in the generation of 1O2, formation of nanostructures, and fabrication of high-efficiency red OLEDs are highlighted.
