- Broadband Light-Harvesting Molecular Triads with High FRET Efficiency Based on the Coumarin–Rhodamine–BODIPY Platform
Longwei He, Sasa Zhu, Dr. Yong Liu, Yinan Xie, Qiuyan Xu, Haipeng Wei and Prof. Weiying Lin
Article first published online: 6 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501375
Running on sunshine: Broadband capturing and FRET-based light-harvesting molecular triads CRBs based on the coumarin–rhodamine–BODIPY platform (see figure) were rationally designed and synthesized. The absorption band of CRBs starts from the blue–green to yellow–orange regions (330–610 nm), covering the strong radiation scope of sunlight. Both the efficiencies of the coumarin moiety and the BODIPY unit to the rhodamine core in CRBs, determining by two different ways, are very high.

Metals only please: A simple method delivers stable, triangular, C3-symmetric, 44 core valence electron, Pd3, Pt3 and heterobimetallic mixed Pd/Pt clusters. Showing the same high symmetry and delocalized bonding mode of their homonuclear peers, these mixed-metal clusters are the first example of stable trinuclear all-metal heteroaromatics.
- A Step-by-Step Assembly of a 3D Coordination Polymer in the Solid-State by Desolvation and [2+2] Cycloaddition Reaction
Dr. Raghavender Medishetty, Rika Tandiana, Dr. Jien Wu, Zhaozhi Bai, Dr. Yonghua Du and Prof. Jagadese J. Vittal
Article first published online: 6 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501649
One step at a time! An unusual solid-state synthesis of a 3D coordination polymer is described from a 1D structure via 2D layer structure utilising thermal desolvation and [2+2] photoccloaddition reactions, and employing XAFS and NOESY NMR experiments.
- Towards Self-Assembled Hybrid Artificial Cells: Novel Bottom-Up Approaches to Functional Synthetic Membranes
Dr. Roberto J. Brea, Michael D. Hardy and Prof. Neal K. Devaraj
Article first published online: 6 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501229
Hybrid artificial cells: Over the last years, considerable effort has been devoted to the integration of functionalized synthetic membranes with biological systems, producing “hybrid” artificial cells. This Concept article fundamentally covers recent advances and the current state-of-the-art of such hybrid systems. Specifically, the design of minimal supramolecular constructs that can faithfully mimic or reconstruct the structure and/or function of living systems is described.
- β-Octamethoxy-Substituted 22π and 26π Stretched Porphycenes: Synthesis, Characterization, Photodynamics, and Nonlinear Optical Studies
Anup Rana, Sangsu Lee, Prof. Dr. Dongho Kim and Dr. Pradeepta K. Panda
Article first published online: 6 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501299
Time to stretch! New 22π and 26π acetylene–cumulene-bridged stretched octamethoxyporphycenes and octamethoxyporphyrin-(18.104.22.168), along with their octaethyl analogues, were explored for their photophysical, photodynamics, and third-order nonlinear optical responses (see scheme).
