A useful twist: 2-Substituted dibenzofulvene molecular actuators based on (2,2,2-triphenylethylidene)fluorene are reported. The 2-nitro compound is photochemically robust and has a large quantum yield for photoisomerization in the near-UV, making it a promising drive rotor moiety for light-powered molecular devices. The 2-cyano and 2-iodo analogues (E and Z isomers of the latter shown in picture) have higher quantum yields but absorb light at shorter wavelengths and undergo minor competing photodecomposition.

Aviram–Ratner mechanism of rectification: A molecular dyad, closely resembling the original design by Aviram and Ratner, featuring a strong donor (TTF), separated by a rigid insulating σ-spacer from a strong extended TCNQ acceptor (exTCNQ), has been designed, synthesized, and fully characterized. Langmuir–Blodgett films were prepared and showed the asymmetric current–voltage (I–V) curve characteristic for rectification, whereas control compounds containing the TTF but not the exTCNQ unit or featuring the exTCNQ acceptor moiety but lacking the TTF donor showed symmetric I–V curves.

Non-innocent CAACs: A cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene (CAAC) was found to undergo unprecedented rearrangements and transformations of its core structure in the presence of Group 1 and 2 metals. Examples of C−H and C−F activation utilizing the carbene are also reported.

- Coexistence of Different Electron-Transfer Mechanisms in the DNA Repair Process by Photolyase
Dr. Wook Lee, Dr. Goutham Kodali, Prof. Robert J. Stanley and Prof. Spiridoula Matsika

Electron transfer in photolyase: High-level quantum mechanical/molecular mechanical (QM/MM) calculations and fluorescence emission spectra reveal that sequential electron-transfer coexists with other electron-transfer mechanisms in the forward electron-transfer step of DNA photolyase due to multiple decay channels (see figure).
