    Spin-Noise-Detected Two-Dimensional Nuclear Magnetic Resonance at Triple Sensitivity

    Stephan J. Ginthör, Dr. Kousik Chandra, Dr. Matthias Bechmann, Dr. Victor V. Rodin and Prof. Dr. Norbert Müller

    Version of Record online: 20 FEB 2018 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201800008

    Triple sensitive spin-noise NMR: A major breakthrough in speed and sensitivity of 2 D spin-noise-detected NMR is achieved owing to a new acquisition and processing scheme called “double block usage” (DBU) that utilizes each recorded noise block in two independent cross-correlations.

  2. Mapping Perfluoroalkyl Effects in Togni-Type Reagents by Thermolysis

    Dr. Nico Santschi, Dr. Dmitry Katayev, Roxan Calvo and Dr. Benson J. Jelier

    The heat is on: Through heating, cyclic hypervalent iodine(III) perfluoroalkyl transfer reagents undergo fragmentation to afford perfluoroalkyl radicals F2n+1Cn.. The reagents can be characterized by means of a threshold temperature, TIP(n), at which the process occurs efficiently. This parameter TIP(n) not only reflects the stability of the F2n+1Cn–I bond but may also carry information on fundamental properties of the linear perfluoroalkyl chains.

  3. Formation Mechanism of Atmospheric Ammonium Bisulfate: Hydrogen-Bond-Promoted Nearly Barrierless Reactions of SO3 with NH3 and H2O

    Shunwei Chen, Dr. Yanling Zhao and Prof. Ruiqin Zhang

    From particulate matter: In the clusters and droplets in the atmosphere, numerous ambient molecules can promote nearly barrierless reactions of SO3 with NH3 and H2O, leading to the formation of atmospheric NH4HSO4.

  4. A Comparative Study on the Photophysics and Photochemistry of Xanthene Dyes in the Presence of Polyamidoamine (PAMAM) Dendrimers

    Dr. Ernesto Maximiliano Arbeloa, Dr. Carlos Mario Previtali and Dr. Sonia Graciela Bertolotti

    Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2018 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201701295

    The dye/dendrimer affair: The spectroscopic properties of xanthene dyes are modified in the presence of polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers through strong interactions between them. Transient absorption spectra are recorded by laser flash photolysis to show that electron transfer from PAMAM to xanthene dyes is a highly favored process (see figure).

  5. Towards the Detection of Explosive Taggants: Microwave and Millimetre-Wave Gas-Phase Spectroscopies of 3-Nitrotoluene

    Is there any TNT taggant here? High-resolution measurements and analysis of 3-NT, one of the TNT explosive taggants, are performed at room temperature in the mm-wave region, providing a rotational line list crucial for future gas-phase detection.
