ChemPlusChem 1/2014: New Features to Delight our Readers
In this issue, Petr Cigler, T. Govindaraju, and Radim Beranek are the first authors to feature as part of the new Early Career Series. Also, Petr Cigler was selected to give the inaugural interview, in which he discusses his career and research achievements. Of course the popular Cover Profiles continue, and an article on efficient DNA triplex–forming oligonucleotides by Vyacheslav Filichev and Carlos González is highlighted this month.

- Heteronuclear NMR Spectroscopy as Surface-Selective Technique: A Unique Look at the Hydroxyl Groups of γ-Alumina.
Dr. Mostafa Taoufik, Dr. Kai C. Szeto, Dr. Nicolas Merle, Dr. Iker Del Rosal, Dr. Laurent Maron, Dr. Julien Trébosc, Dr. Grégory Tricot, Dr. Régis M. Gauvin and Dr. Laurent Delevoye
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201304883
Illuminating alumina: Thanks to the combination of high magnetic field and advanced (heteronuclear) correlations techniques, solid-state NMR provides unprecedented elements on the topology of the surface hydroxyl groups of γ-alumina (see figure).
- Isolation and Characterization of Precise Dye/Dendrimer Ratios
Casey A. Dougherty, Joseph C. Furgal, Dr. Mallory A. van Dongen, Prof. Theodore Goodson III, Prof. Mark M. Banaszak Holl, Dr. Janet Manono and Prof. Stassi DiMaggio
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201304854
High definition: Two approaches for the formation of generation 5 PAMAM samples containing precise dye/dendrimer ratios are presented. The first approach, using direct separation based on dye hydrophobicity, generated a set of TAMRA-containing dendrimers, and the second, using click chemistry, generated a set of fluorescein-containing dendrimer (see figure).
- Cyclodimerization versus Polymerization of Methyl Methacrylate Induced by N-Heterocyclic Carbenes: A Combined Experimental and Theoretical Study
Winnie Nzahou Ottou, Damien Bourichon, Dr. Joan Vignolle, Anne-Laure Wirotius, Dr. Fredéric Robert, Prof. Yannick Landais, Dr. Jean-Marc Sotiropoulos, Dr. Karinne Miqueu and Prof. Daniel Taton
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201304492
Cyclodimerizing MMA! NHCiPr (NHC=N-heterocyclic carbene) unexpectedly reacts with methyl methacrylate (MMA) by forming a stable imidazolium–enolate cyclodimer (NHCiPr/MMA=1:2), in contrast to polymerization, which is induced by NHCtBu (see scheme). DFT calculations on both mechanistic pathways highlight the differences observed between these two very similar NHCs.
- Coulomb Explosion Imaged Cryptochiral (R,R)-2,3-Dideuterooxirane: Unambiguous Access to the Absolute Configuration of (+)-Glyceraldehyde
Dipl.-Chem. Kerstin Zawatzky, Dipl.-Phys. Philipp Herwig, Manfred Grieser, Dr. Oded Heber, Dr. Brandon Jordon-Thaden, Dr. Claude Krantz, Dr. Oldřich Novotný, Dr. Roland Repnow, Prof. Dr. Volker Schurig, Prof. Dr. Dirk Schwalm, Prof. Dr. Zeev Vager, Prof. Dr. Andreas Wolf, Dr. Holger Kreckel and Prof. Dr. Oliver Trapp
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201400296
100 % Absolute: The absolute configuration of (R,R)-2,3-dideuterooxirane, which has been independently determined by Coulomb explosion imaging, has been unambiguously chemically correlated with the stereochemical key reference (+)-glyceraldehyde. This puts the absolute configuration of D(+)-glyceraldehyde on firm experimental grounds (see scheme).
- Hypervalent Iodine-Mediated Selective Oxidative Functionalization of (Thio)chromones with Alkanes
Dr. Rishikesh Narayan and Dr. Andrey P. Antonchick
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201400186
Hypervalent iodine: An efficient IIII-mediated selective oxidative functionalization of alkanes with chromones and (thio)chromones has been developed. The developed methodology provides a direct access to the 2-alkyl chromones under metal-free and ambient conditions. Both cyclic and acyclic alkanes can be selectively functionalized (see scheme).
