    A bigger bang: A new three-dimensional energetic metal–organic framework as super heat-resistant explosive is formed by self-assembly of a multidentate ligand and potassium ion. Potassium 4-(5-amino-3-nitro-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)-3,5-dinitropyrazole shows superior heat resistance with a high decomposition temperature of 323 °C and outstanding detonation performance.

    Do you take sugar? Carbohydrate naphthalene diimide conjugates (carb-NDIs) have been designed and prepared as G-quadruplex ligands. Carb-NDIs showed different cellular uptake, depending on the sugar attachment to the central aromatic core (see figure). More efficient cell penetration by carb-NDIs correlated with improved cytotoxic activity in cancer cells. Glucose transporters (GLUTs) participate in the specific translocation of carb-NDIs, particularly GLUT4.

  5. Zeolite-Based Organic Synthesis (ZeoBOS) of Acortatarin A: First Total Synthesis Based on Native and Metal-Doped Zeolite-Catalyzed Steps

    A new concept, that is, Zeolite-Based Organic Synthesis (ZeoBOS), is described for the efficient access to structurally complex and functionalized molecules and illustrated with the total synthesis of acortatarin A, a unique antioxidant natural product. The synthesis was achieved through a novel strategy, based on several synthetic steps catalyzed by H- or metal-doped zeolites as catalysts.
