  1. Fully Oriented Bilirubin Oxidase on Porphyrin-Functionalized Carbon Nanotube Electrodes for Electrocatalytic Oxygen Reduction

    Noémie Lalaoui, Dr. Alan Le Goff, Dr. Michael Holzinger and Dr. Serge Cosnier

    Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502377

    Facing the right way: Bilirubin oxidase from Myrothecium verrucaria can be efficiently immobilized and oriented on multi-walled carbon nanotube electrodes by using π-stacked porphyrins as a direct electron-transfer promoter (see figure).

  2. Crystal Structures of a Molecule Designed Not To Pack Tightly

    Dipl.-Chem. Bernd Kohl, Dr. Frank Rominger and Prof. Dr. Michael Mastalerz

    Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502847

    Not too frustrated! Organic molecules of intrinsic microporosity (OMIMs) are constructed to not pack by strong interactions (the so-called frustrated packing). One example is given which shows how frustration can be circumvented and how to obtain single-crystal X-ray structures with large intrinsic pore volumes.

  3. Charge Effects in PCP Pincer Complexes of NiII bearing Phosphinite and Imidazol(i)ophosphine Coordinating Jaws: From Synthesis to Catalysis through Bonding Analysis

    Dr.  Boris Vabre, Dr.  Yves Canac, Dr.  Christine Lepetit, Dr.  Carine Duhayon, Prof.  Remi Chauvin and Prof.  Davit Zargarian

    Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502491

    Turning nitriles into amidines: Hydroamination of benzonitrile with aliphatic primary or secondary amines is catalyzed by cationic NiII species ligated by a new family of PCP pincer-type ligands; PIMCOP, PIMIOCOP, and NHCCOP (shown in scheme). The new NiII pincer complexes are characterized by X-ray diffraction and NMR and IR spectroscopy and further studied by theoretical methods.

  4. Strong Fluorescent Smart Organogel as a Dual Sensing Material for Volatile Acid and Organic Amine Vapors

    Dr. Pengchong Xue, Boqi Yao, Panpan Wang, Peng Gong, Zhenqi Zhang and Prof. Ran Lu

    Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502401

    Vapor sensing materials: An organogelator with benzoxazole and cyano moieties is designed and synthesized. This material can gelate solvents and form one-dimensional nanofibers displaying strong green emission. Moreover, the xerogel film can be used as a dual sensor for the quantitative detection of volatile acid and aromatic organic amine vapors with low detection limits (see figure).

  5. A Versatile AlIII-Based Metal–Organic Framework with High Physicochemical Stability

    Zhuo-Wei Wang, Dr. Min Chen, Prof. Chun-Sen Liu, Xi Wang, Hui Zhao and Prof. Miao Du

    Article first published online: 9 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502615

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Ready, willing, and stable: A unique AlIII-based metal–organic framework (MOF) material based on a flexible tricarboxylate ligand has been synthesized. The MOF shows exceptional stability and potential applications as a selective adsorbent and nitrobenzene sensor.
