  1. Supramolecular Self-Assembly of Histidine-Capped-Dialkoxy-Anthracene: A Visible-Light-Triggered Platform for Facile siRNA Delivery

    A “Smart Assembly”! Visible-light-responsive small-molecule self-assembly was developed employing histidine-capped-9,10-dialkoxy-anthracene. When protonated, this biocompatible platform could successfully complex siRNA and deliver it with high efficacy, upon visible-light irradiation, leading up to 90 % of gene silencing in live cells (see scheme).

  2. Slow Relaxation of Magnetization in an Isostructural Series of Zinc–Lanthanide Complexes: An Integrated EPR and AC Susceptibility Study

    An attractive pair: EPR spectroscopy and DC magnetic studies have been used to probe the anisotropic magnetic properties of a series of Zn–Ln compounds, revealing clear deviations from behavior predicted on the basis of a simple electrostatic model (see graphic). The DyIII derivative further showed rich magnetization dynamics, for which multiple relaxation mechanisms have been identified. Its activation barrier is one of the highest reported for a dinuclear Zn–Dy system.

  3. Methane Activation by 5 d Transition Metals: Energetics, Mechanisms, and Periodic Trends

    Prof. Peter B. Armentrout

    Version of Record online: 28 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201602015

    Guided-ion-beam tandem mass spectrometry studies of the reactions of the 5d transition-metal cations along with spectroscopic characterization of the dehydrogenation products are reviewed. Periodic trends in the energetics and mechanisms of these reactions are surveyed.

  4. Direct Measurement of Electron Transfer in Nanoscale Host–Guest Systems: Metallocenes in Carbon Nanotubes

    Robert L. McSweeney, Dr. Thomas W. Chamberlain, Dr. Matteo Baldoni, Dr. Maria A. Lebedeva, Dr. E. Stephen Davies, Prof. Dr. Elena Besley and Prof. Dr. Andrei N. Khlobystov

    In a tube: Encapsulation of metallocenes inside single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) gives rise to electronic doping of the SWNTs. The degree of electron transfer within these host–guest systems is quantified using coulometry, which, correlated with theoretical calculations, provides an accurate indication of n/p-doping of the SWNTs.

  5. Samarium and Nitrogen Co-Doped Bi2WO6 Photocatalysts: Synergistic Effect of Sm3+/Sm2+ Redox Centers and N-Doped Level for Enhancing Visible-Light Photocatalytic Activity

    Fangzhi Wang, Prof.Dr. Wenjun Li, Shaonan Gu, Hongda Li, Xue Wu and Xintong Liu

    Version of Record online: 28 JUL 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201602168

    In-built redox centers: Samarium and nitrogen co-doped Bi2WO6 nanosheets were successfully synthesized. The enhanced photocatalytic activity was attributed to the synergistic effect of the in-built Sm3+/Sm2+ redox pair centers and the N-doped level.
