- Self-Assembling Molecular Logic Gates Based on DNA Crossover Tiles
Eleanor A. Campbell, Evan Peterson and Dr. Dmitry M. Kolpashchikov
Version of Record online: 24 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201700109
The design of self-assembling logic gates that recognize DNA inputs and assemble into crossover tiles when the output signal is high is reported. The crossover structures form separate DNA stands when the output is low. AND, NOT, and OR logic gates are designed, and the gates can connect to each other to produce other logic functions.
- Cavitation-Free Continuous-Wave Laser Ablation from a Solid Target to Synthesize Low-Size-Dispersed Gold Nanoparticles

Gentle and steady: The continuous wave (CW) laser ablation of Au in water is investigated. In the absence of a secondary ablation mechanism associated with cavitation bubble collapse, the formed nanoparticles present a single population with a variable mean size and a small size dispersion.
- CeIV–GdIII Mixed Oxides as Hosts for ErIII-Based Upconversion Phosphors
Dr. Cecilia Sorbello, Dr. Petra Gross, Priv.-Doz. Dr. Cristian A. Strassert, Dr. Matías Jobbágy and Dr. Beatriz C. Barja
Version of Record online: 23 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201601262
Lift it up: ErIII and ErIII–YbIII based nanophosphors, hosted in a family of monophasic oxidic CeIV–GdIII solid solutions, were prepared. The yield of the upconversion (UC) process is discussed in the framework of both established and novel alternative mechanisms. Vacancies and the symmetry of the ErIII environment play major roles in the UC emission mechanisms.
- The Relation between Vaporization Enthalpies and Viscosities: Eyring's Theory Applied to Selected Ionic Liquids
Anne-Marie Bonsa, Dr. Dietmar Paschek, Dr. Dzmitry H. Zaitsau, Dr. Vladimir N. Emel'yanenko, Prof. Dr. Sergey P. Verevkin and Prof. Dr. Ralf Ludwig
Version of Record online: 22 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201700138
Old model still looks young. The eighty years old Eyring model can be applied to selected protic ionic liquids. The idea is, to correlate the easily measurable viscosities of ionic liquids with their vaporization enthalpies for opening a new way for a reliable assessment of these important thermodynamic properties.
- Environmental Impact of Ionic Liquids: Automated Evaluation of the Chemical Oxygen Demand of Photochemically Degraded Compounds
Susana P. F. Costa, Sarah A. P. Pereira, Dr. Paula C. A. G. Pinto, Dr. André R. T. S. Araujo, Dr. Marieta L. C. Passos and Dr. M. Lúcia M. F. S. Saraiva
Version of Record online: 22 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201601416
A novel automated fluorimetric technique is developed for the assessment of the chemical oxygen demand of ionic liquids.
