The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014 has been awarded jointly to Eric Betzig, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Ashburn, VA, USA, Stefan W. Hell, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany, and William E. Moerner, Stanford University, CA, USA, "for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy".
Work from Stefan Hell and his group on masked rhodamine dyes and their applications in light microscopy applications was recently highlighted on the front cover of Chemistry—A European Journal.

- Selective and Sensitive Aqueous-Phase Detection of 2,4,6-Trinitrophenol (TNP) by an Amine-Functionalized Metal–Organic Framework
Biplab Joarder, Aamod V. Desai, Partha Samanta, Soumya Mukherjee and Dr. Sujit K. Ghosh
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405167
The unique amalgamation of amine-functionalized porous channels and hydrolytic constancy imparts an exclusive 2,4,6-trinitrophenol (TNP) selectivity in aqueous media, even in the concurrent presence of all other nitro analytes (see scheme).
- Selective Transformation of Syngas into Gasoline-Range Hydrocarbons over Mesoporous H-ZSM-5-Supported Cobalt Nanoparticles
Dr. Kang Cheng, Lei Zhang, Dr. Jincan Kang, Xiaobo Peng, Prof. Dr. Qinghong Zhang and Prof. Dr. Ye Wang
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405277
Bifunctional catalysts composed of uniform-sized cobalt nanoparticles and mesoporous H-form zeolite ZSM-5 with strong Brønsted acidity and tunable mesoporosity are promising for the production of gasoline-range hydrocarbons from syngas (see figure) with a selectivity of 70 %, which is markedly higher than the maximum value of about 45 % expected from the Anderson–Schulz–Flory distribution.
- Intramolecularly Stabilised Group 10 Metal Stannyl and Stannylene Complexes: Multi-pathway Synthesis and Observation of Platinum-to-Tin Alkyl Transfer
Dr. Stefan Warsink, Dr. Eric J. Derrah, Cornelis A. Boon, Dr. Yves Cabon, Dr. Jeroen J. M. de Pater, Dr. Martin Lutz, Prof. Dr. Robertus J. M. Klein Gebbink and Prof. Dr. Berth-Jan Deelman
Article first published online: 25 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404071
It takes tin to tango: Reaction of tin dichloride with PdII and PtII alkyl precursors bearing bifunctional P,N ligands leads to alkyl transfer from the metal centre to tin and the formation of alkyl stannylene complexes. For Pt, intermediate alkyl platinum stannylene species are observed. Oxidative addition of organotin trichlorides to zerovalent Group 10 metal precursors also leads to organostannylene species.
- Conformation-Determined Through-Bond versus Through-Space Electronic Communication in Mixed-Valence Systems with a Cross-Conjugated Urea Bridge
Zhong-Liang Gong, Prof. Dr. Yu-Wu Zhong and Prof. Dr. Jiannian Yao
Article first published online: 24 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405332
Methods of communication: The through-bond versus through-space electronic communication through the cross-conjugated urea bridge can be controlled by utilizing the linear or folded conformation of the diarylurea unit with either triarylamine or cyclometalated ruthenium as the redox sites (see figure).
- (Metallo)porphyrins as Potent Phototoxic Anti-Cancer Agents after Irradiation with Red Light
Dr. Philipp M. Antoni, Dr. Anu Naik, Ina Albert, Dr. Riccardo Rubbiani, Dr. Susmita Gupta, Dr. Pilar Ruiz-Sanchez, Pornkanok Munikorn, Dr. José M. Mateos, Prof. Dr. Vera Luginbuehl, Prof. Dr. Patchanita Thamyongkit, Dr. Urs Ziegler, Prof. Dr. Gilles Gasser, Prof. Dr. Gunnar Jeschke and Priv.-Doz. Dr. Bernhard Spingler

Red light does it! Water-soluble porphyrins are powerful photosensitisers for photodynamic therapy. When irradiated with red light, all compounds, including a copper complex, show high photocytotoxicity towards two different human cancer cell lines with IC50 values down to 0.4 μM (see figure).
