  1. Conformational Tuning of the Intramolecular Electronic Coupling in Molecular-Wire Biruthenium Complexes Bridged by Biphenyl Derivatives

    Dan-Dan Kong, Lu-Sha Xue, Rui Jang, Dr. Bin Liu, Dr. Xiang-Gao Meng, Prof. Dr. Shan Jin, Ya-Ping Ou, Xiao Hao and Prof. Dr. Sheng-Hua Liu

    Article first published online: 27 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500509

    A torsionary tale: A series of biphenyl-bridged binuclear ruthenium vinyl complexes were synthesized and their properties investigated by electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods. The results clearly showed that the electron-transfer and redox processes of these complexes could be modulated by changing the torsion angle ϕ between the two phenyl rings from coplanar to perpendicular (see figure).

  2. Luminescence-Functionalized Metal–Organic Frameworks Based on a Ruthenium(II) Complex: A Signal Amplification Strategy for Electrogenerated Chemiluminescence Immunosensors

    Cheng-Yi Xiong, Dr. Hai-Jun Wang, Wen-Bin Liang, Ya-Li Yuan, Prof. Dr. Ruo Yuan and Prof. Dr. Ya-Qin Chai

    Trap the light fantastic: Luminescence-functionalized metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) were synthesized by using Zn2+ as the central ion and a Ru complex as the ligand. This provided a method to use a metallic complex instead of a small organic molecule as a ligand to prepare MOFs. Moreover, MOFs were applied to the construction of a sensitive electrogenerated chemiluminescence biosensor (see figure).

  3. Glycosyl-Templated Chiral Helix Stapling of Ethynylpyridine Oligomers by Alkene Metathesis between Inter-Pitch Side Chains

    Dr. Hajime Abe, Dr. Fumihiro Kayamori and Prof. Dr. Masahiko Inouye

    Article first published online: 27 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501102

    Stapling makes more happen: Ethynylpyridine oligomers have been prepared as helical structures by using a chiral template. These structures can be stapled by alkene metathesis of the side chains (see figure). Subsequent removal of the chiral template by acidolysis produces template-free stapled helical oligomers, which are resistant to polar solvents and heating.

  4. Cooperative Binding of Divalent Diamides by N-Alkyl Ammonium Resorcinarene Chlorides

    Dr. N. Kodiah Beyeh, M. Sc. Altti Ala-Korpi, Dr. Fangfang Pan, M. Sc. Hyun Hwa Jo, Prof. Eric V. Anslyn and Prof. Kari Rissanen

    Cooperative guests: N-Alkyl ammonium resorcinarene chlorides cooperatively bind a series of homoditopic alkyl diamides of varying spacer lengths (see figure). The highest binding was observed with the six-carbon spacer guest. The cooperative binding of these divalent guests was studied in solution by using 1H NMR titration studies and supplemented by diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY), X-ray crystallography, and mass spectrometry.

  5. Centromeric Alpha-Satellite DNA Adopts Dimeric i-Motif Structures Capped by AT Hoogsteen Base Pairs

    Dr. Miguel Garavís, Dr. Núria Escaja, Prof. Valérie Gabelica, Dr. Alfredo Villasante and Prof. Carlos González

    Article first published online: 27 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500448

    Nucleosome organization: All human centromeric alpha-satellites contain sequences that can form dimeric i-motif structures in vitro (see figure). These regions occur every 171 bp and are found at the entrance and exit of the nucleosome. This finding suggests that the i-motif may play a role in the higher order nucleosome organization at the centromere.
