- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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
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.
