      Article first published online: 16 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201590006

      The cover picture shows the construction of novel supramolecular prodrug micelles based on the host-guest interaction of water-soluble pillar[6]arene (WP6) and doxorubicin (DOX)-based drug-drug conjugate (G). Herein, the release rate of DOX from these supramolecular micelles is approximate to 100% within 30 min at pH 5.5 by simulating the endo-lysosomal environment. Significantly, intracellular localization experiments demonstrated that these supramolecular micelles, taken up by cancer cells via endocytosis, can lead to efficient DOX accumulation in SKOV3 cancer cells, implying its promising future for cancer therapy. More details are discussed in the article by Hu et al. on page 329–334.

      The construction of novel supramolecular prodrug micelles based on the host-guest interaction of WP6 and doxorubicin (DOX)-based drug-drug conjugate (G) is reported, and the release rate of DOX from these supramolecular micelles is approximate to 100% within 30 min at pH 5.5 by simulating the endo-lysosomal environment.

    2. Complexation of Linear Aliphatic Ester, Aldehyde and Ketone Guests by Per-ethylated Pillar[5]arene (pages 335–338)

      Xiaobing Lou, Huanqing Chen, Xueshun Jia and Chunju Li

      Article first published online: 9 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400889

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The complexation of four neutral guest molecules containing carbon-oxygen double bonds, i.e., 1,6-diacetoxyhexane (1), dimethyl hexanedioate (2), hexanal (3), and 2-hexanone (4), by per-ethylated pillar[5]arene is reported. These guests show remarkably different binding affinities. For example, ester 1 could be fully engulfed by the host cavity to form a [2]pseudorotaxane-type inclusion complex, while for 2, no obvious host-guest interaction was observed.

    3. Naphthalene Diimide Templated Synthesis of Pillar[6]arenes (pages 339–342)

      Pillar[6]arenes have been demonstrated to be selectively synthesized in the presence of templated naphthalene diimides.

    4. A Pillar[6]arene-[2]pseudorotaxane Based pH-Sensitive Molecular Switch (pages 343–345)

      Huanqing Chen, Xueshun Jia and Chunju Li

      Article first published online: 9 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201500074

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel pH-responsive [2]pseudorotaxane based on ethylated pillar[6]arene and bis(1,2,3-triazolium)butane cation was constructed. The dethreading and rethreading could be reversibly controlled by adding base and acid, i.e., the deprotonation and reprotonation of the guest. In contrast, such responsible switching behavior does not occur for the complexation between the guest and ethylatedpillar[5]arene, since both the cationic axle and the deprotonated one can be strongly bound by ethylated pillar[5]arene. Furthermore, the bis(1,2,3-triazolium)butane⊂pillar[6]arene-[2]pseudorotaxane can also disassemble upon the addition of competitive ethylated pillar[5]arene.

    1. Crystal Structure and Host-Guest Binding Ability of Three Types of Pillar[5]arenes (pages 346–350)

      Luzhi Liu, Wengui Duan, Yuhui Kou, Lingyun Wang, Herbert Meier and Derong Cao

      Article first published online: 9 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400879

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A systematic research of the structural characterization and the host-guest binding abilities between three types of pillar[5]arenes is carried out. Their symmetry of structures and complexation behaviour are affected by different substituents or bound guests in the cavity.

    3. Phosphorous-Based Pillar[5]arenes for Uranyl Extraction (pages 361–367)

      Bing Bai, Yuyu Fang, Quan Gan, Yuanyou Yang, Lihua Yuan and Wen Feng

      Article first published online: 9 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400899

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      One phosphine oxide-based pillar[5]arene 1a and two novel phosphorous-based pillar[5]arenas 1b and 1c were synthesized for use as extractants in solvent extraction of UO22+. The results from host-guest interactions pertinent to the extracted complexes of 1a1c revealed a significant difference in complexation capability between 1a and 1b (or 1c) by using 1H NMR, 31P NMR and FT-IR techniques. The extraction of UO22+ in separate extraction system and in simulated nuclear industry effluent containing 12 competing ions demonstrated the superior efficiency and selectivity of 1a towards UO22+ over other cations in acidic feed. Log-log plot analysis indicated the 1:1 stoichiometry (ligand/metal) for the extracted complex formed between the ligand and UO22+.

      Synthesis of Coumarin-Pillar[5]arene as a Selective Fluorescent Probe for Methyl-Parathion (pages 368–372)

      Fan Zhang, Xianliang Cao, Demei Tian and Haibing Li

      Article first published online: 14 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400675

      A novel coumarin-pillar[5]arene derivative (P5C10) was prepared. Fluorescence spectroscopy indicates that P5C10 shows good selectivity towards methyl-parathion. A combination of NMR spectra, MALDI-TOF spectra and computational calculations reveals the formation of a host-guest complex driven by π-π stacking interactions.

    7. Synthesis of Copillar[5]arenes and Their Host-Guest Complexation with Two Types of Guests (pages 384–388)

      Hongfei Huang, Luzhi Liu, Wengui Duan, Yan Huang and Guishan Lin

      Article first published online: 9 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cjoc.201400893

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of novel copillar[5]arenes 1a–1f containing different substituents were synthesized. Their complexation indicated that the modified substituted group of copillar[5]arene and the symmetry of guest played an important role in the complexation model and selectivity.
