Forced into shape: Nanotubes of J aggregates may collapse to form plastic bilayered ribbons when deposited on surfaces, and may break upon sonication or vortexing into smaller nanoparticles, which then tend to aggregate into large colloidal particles (see figure).
- β,β-(1,4-Dithiino)subporphyrin Dimers Capturing Fullerenes with Large Association Constants

β,β-(1,4-Dithiino)subporphyrin dimers were synthesized and their complexation behaviors with fullerenes were investigated. The syn dimer captures both C60 and C70 with high association constants (ca. 106 m−1) in toluene solution, with 1:1 and 2:1 complexation stoichiometries, respectively. The anti dimer forms a supramolecular complex with both C60 and C70 in the solid state; the fullerenes are sandwiched between each subporphyrin unit of two anti dimers.
- Generalization of the Copper to Late-Transition-Metal Transmetallation to Carbenes beyond N-Heterocyclic Carbenes

Copper to carbene made easy! The NHC-CuI transmetallation reaction is expanded to Group 9 metals, and generalized to other carbenes such as MICs, aNHCs, and CAACs to generate a library of transition-metal complexes. Since all copper-complex precursors are made by direct metallation of easy-to-handle carbene conjugate acids with copper oxide, the methodology reported here allows for the preparation of a variety of carbene complexes without the use of highly sensitive reagents.
- Ordered Layered Dendrimers Constructed from Two Known Dendrimer Families: Inheritance and Emergence of Properties

More than the sum of parts: New dendrimers have been synthesized that are intrinsically composed in alternation of building blocks pertaining to two known families of dendrimers: the phosphorhydrazone dendrimers and the triazine-piperazine dendrimers. These mixed dendrimers with layered controlled architecture have inherited properties from their parents, but have also their own original properties.
- A Visible-Light-Triggered Conformational Diastereomer Photoswitch in a Bridged Azobenzene
Claire Deo, Dr. Nicolas Bogliotti, Dr. Rémi Métivier, Dr. Pascal Retailleau and Prof. Juan Xie
Version of Record online: 30 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201601400
Flick of the Z-switch: Photoswitchable conformational diastereoisomers Z1 and Z2 are based on a bridged azobenzene structure. Z1 and Z2 can be interconverted by visible light via the less stable E-isomer with high photostability and good photochemical quantum yields.
