  1. Constructing a Nonfluorescent Conformation of AIEgen: A Tetraphenylethene Embedded in the Calix[4]arene's Skeleton

    Bin Han, Dr. Xi Wang, Yan Gao and Dr. Ming Bai

    Version of Record online: 28 SEP 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201604062

    Switching off the light: Utilizing the diphenylmethane nature of the meso-position of calixarene, a tetraphenylethene unit could be embedded in the calix scaffold. This bottom rim modification adjusts the conformation of the calix[4]arene. In the cone conformation, a nonfluorescent conformation of tetraphenylethene could be obtained.

  2. Efficient Self-Contained Photoacid Generator System Based on Photochromic Terarylenes

    Ruiji Li, Dr. Takuya Nakashima, Rui Kanazawa, Dr. Olivier Galangau and Prof. Tsuyoshi Kawai

    Version of Record online: 28 SEP 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201603768

    Let there be acid: An elimination reaction of an acid molecule was combined as a subsequent reaction of a photochromic 6π-electrocyclization reaction of terarylenes, which was applied in a chemically amplified resist system (see figure).

  3. Ate Complexes in Iron-Catalyzed Cross-Coupling Reactions

    Tobias Parchomyk and Prof. Dr. Konrad Koszinowski

    Version of Record online: 28 SEP 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201603574

    Iron up close and personal: Analysis of iron-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions by electrospray-ionization mass spectrometry finds a multitude of anionic organoferrate complexes covering a remarkable range of different oxidation states. Gas-phase fragmentation experiments afford in-depth insight into the reactivity of these elusive species.

  4. Aggregation-Induced Emission and Sensing Characteristics of Triarylborane–Oligothiophene–Dicyanovinyl Triads

    George Rajendra Kumar, Samir Kumar Sarkar and Prof. Dr. Pakkirisamy Thilagar

    Version of Record online: 28 SEP 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201603349

    Hazard detectors: The design and synthesis of a series of triarylborane–oligothiophene–dicyanovinyl triads 46 (A–D–A’) is reported (see figure). The optical properties of 46 were elegantly modulated by judiciously varying the number of thiophenyl spacer between the acceptors. Compounds 5 and 6 are AIE active and also exhibit significant luminescence in a PMMA matrix. Filter paper strips coated with compounds 5 and 6 can detect F and CN in aqueous media with different colorimetric responses.

  5. Copper Complexes of New Redox-Active 4,5-Bisguanidino-Substituted Benzodioxole Ligands: Control of the Electronic Structure by Counter-Ligands, Solvent, and Temperature

    David Fridolin Schrempp, Dr. Elisabeth Kaifer, Prof. Hubert Wadepohl and Prof. Hans-Jörg Himmel

    Redox-active guys: The electronic structure of mononuclear copper complexes featuring new redox-active 4,5-bisguanidino-substituted benzodioxole ligands can be controlled by several parameters and a temperature-dependent equilibrium between two tautomeric forms (CuII/neutral ligand and CuI/radical monocationic ligand) can be achieved. One electron removal leads to a redox-induced electron transfer (RIET; see figure).
