- A Carbon Nanotube Confinement Strategy to Implement Homogeneous Asymmetric Catalysis in the Solid Phase
Kazuki Hashimoto, Dr. Naoya Kumagai and Prof. Dr. Masakatsu Shibasaki
Article first published online: 30 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406402
A readily recyclable asymmetric catalyst was developed based on the self-assembly of a homogeneous catalyst in a fibrous network of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). The resulting MWNT-confined catalyst exhibited a high catalytic performance in a catalytic asymmetric Mannich-type reaction, which could be conducted in a repeated batch system and in a continuous-flow platform.
- Supramolecular Nanoassemblies of an Amphiphilic Porphyrin–Cyclodextrin Conjugate and Their Morphological Transition from Vesicle to Network

Network news: An amphiphilic porphyrin–cyclodextrin conjugate self- assembles to form two distinctly different nanoarchitectures, which are induced by the guest molecule (see figure). Moreover, the morphology transition from vesicle to network is controlled by the stepwise complexation between host and guest molecules.
- Electrospun Highly Ordered Mesoporous Silica–Carbon Composite Nanofibers for Rapid Extraction and Prefractionation of Endogenous Peptides
Gang-Tian Zhu, Dr. Xi Chen, Xiao-Mei He, Han Wang, Zheng Zhang and Prof. Dr. Yu-Qi Feng
Article first published online: 30 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406237
Easy enrichment: Ordered mesoporous silica–carbon composite nanofibers (OMSCF) have been successfully prepared for the first time (see figure; PVA: poly(vinyl alcohol); TEOS: tetraethyl orthosilicate; CTAB: cetyltrimethylammonium bromide). Owing to the size-exclusion effect and special surface properties, the nanofibers act as excellent adsorbents for rapid extraction and prefractionation of endogenous peptides in a miniaturized extraction device.
- Synthetic Efforts toward the Lycopodium Alkaloids Inspires a Hydrogen Iodide Mediated Method for the Hydroamination and Hydroetherification of Olefins
Paul R. Leger, Rebecca A. Murphy, Eugenia Pushkarskaya and Prof. Richmond Sarpong
Article first published online: 30 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406242
Harnessing the unexpected: The expedient synthesis of a strategic synthetic intermediate en route to structurally diverse Lycopodium alkaloids has been accomplished. During these studies, in situ generated hydrogen iodide promoted an unanticipated hydroamination. This transformation has been thoroughly investigated and expanded into a general method for the hydrofunctionalization of unactivated olefins.
- Decoupled Spin Crossover and Structural Phase Transition in a Molecular Iron(II) Complex
Dr. Laurence J. Kershaw Cook, Dr. Helena J. Shepherd, Dr. Tim P. Comyn, Dr. Chérif Baldé, Dr. Oscar Cespedes, Dr. Guillaume Chastanet and Prof. Malcolm A. Halcrow

Crystals of [FeL2][BF4]2 (L=4-(methylsulfanyl)-2,6-di(pyrazol-1-yl)pyridine) exhibit a phase transition at 205 K (see figure). High-temperature phase 1 contains two iron environments, which undergo spin crossover near 270 K with different degrees of cooperativity. Powder samples of the same complex remain in phase 1 between 140–290 K. Two related compounds, that show more gradual spin crossover and adopt phase 2 at all temperatures, are also described for comparison.
