  1. Aromaticity-Controlled Energy Storage Capacity of the Dihydroazulene-Vinylheptafulvene Photochromic System

    Full of energy: An increase in the solar energy storage capacity of the dihydroazulene (DHA)–vinylheptafulvene (VHF) photo/thermoswitch is achieved by fusing a benzene ring to the DHA isomer (see figure). In contrast, the relative stability is interchanged by benzannulation of the VHF isomer.

  2. Hydrothermal Synthesis of a rGO Nanosheet Enwrapped NiFe Nanoalloy for Superior Electrocatalytic Oxygen Evolution Reactions

    Metallic Ni2Fe nanoalloy/rGO hybrids: A highly active electrocatalyst for the oxygen evolution reaction. A mild hydrothermal reduction route has given birth to a well-shaped rGO nanosheets enwrapped NiFe nanoalloy. Moreover, the obtained Ni2Fe nanoalloy/rGO hybrids present notable activity over the rGO free materials (see figure).

  3. A Dicobalt Complex with an Unsymmetrical Quinonoid Bridge Isolated in Three Units of Charge: A Combined Structural, (Spectro)electrochemical, Magnetic and Spectroscopic Study

    Margarethe van der Meer, Yvonne Rechkemmer, Uta Frank, Frauke D. Breitgoff, Dr. Stephan Hohloch, Prof. Dr. Cheng-Yong Su, Dr. Petr Neugebauer, Raphael Marx, María Dörfel, Prof. Dr. Joris van Slageren and Prof. Dr. Biprajit Sarkar

    The Co–Co connection: Dinuclear cobalt complexes with an unsymmetrically substituted quinone bridge are presented (see structure). The bridge asymmetry allows unprecedented site-specific redox chemistry and the isolation and crystallographic characterization of the complexes in three different oxidation states, a feat that has been achieved for the first time in quinone bridged dinuclear complexes.

  4. Nucleophilic Aromatic Substitution on Pentafluorophenyl-Substituted Dipyrranes and Tetrapyrroles as a Route to Multifunctionalized Chromophores for Potential Application in Photodynamic Therapy

    Agents of change: An alternative approach to amino-substitution of porphyrinoid or BODIPY compounds is achieved by modification of the PFP-dipyrrane precursor with a range of different amines or alcohols. These dipyrranes are transformed to specifically substituted corroles, porphyrins, hexaphyrins, and BODIPYs. Selected porphyrins are tested for their photodynamic therapy activity.

  5. Macroscopic Responsive Liquid Quantum Dots Constructed via Pillar[5]arene-based Host-guest Interactions

    Going dotty: Supramolecular liquid quantum dots (liquid WP5-1810-QDs) have been produced by the interactions between PEG-1810 and water-soluble pillar[5]arene (WP5). The proposed supramolecular QDs demonstrate a selective response toward lysine (see figure). In sharp contrast, the microstructure, fluorescence, and also fluidic temperature were evidently altered with lysine and other amino acids. It is anticipated that this study will pave a way for constructing smart sensors.
