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.

- Aliphatic Organoimido Derivatives of Polyoxometalates Containing a Bioactive Ligand
Shan She , Shengtai Bian, Prof. Dr. Jian Hao , Dr. Jiangwei Zhang, Jin Zhang and Prof. Dr. Yongge Wei
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404317
POM–drug hybrids: A systematic investigation of aliphatic organoimido derivatives of a polyoxometalate (POM) based on the drug amantadine elucidated the spectral and crystal-structural similarities and differences between monosubstituted, cis-disubstituted, and trans-disubstituted derivatives (see figure) to provide guidance for related work on imido-functionalized Lindqvist-type POMs. Furthermore, covalently grafting a biologically active molecule to a POM enhanced its applications in clinical cancer treatment.
- Sulfur-Impregnated Core–Shell Hierarchical Porous Carbon for Lithium–Sulfur Batteries
Dr. Fei-Fei Zhang, Dr. Gang Huang, Xu-Xu Wang, Dr. Yu-Ling Qin, Dr. Xin-Chuan Du, Dong-Ming Yin, Fei Liang and Prof. Li-Min Wang
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404439
Safe haven for sulfur: Core–shell hierarchical porous carbon (HPC) spheres were synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method and used as host to incorporate sulfur. The resulting material turns out to be highly uniform and exhibit enhanced specific capacity, superior rate capability, and excellent cycling stability when evaluated as a cathode material for lithium–sulfur batteries.
- Reversible Reduction of Oxatriphyrin(3.1.1)—Adjusting the Coordination Abilities to the Central Ion
Dr. Miłosz Pawlicki, Aneta Kędzia, Dominik Bykowski and Prof. Lechosław Latos-Grażyński
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404570
Adjustable complexes: The electronic properties of a nonaromatic oxatriphyrin(3.1.1) change drastically by a trigonal-to-tetrahedral rehybridization at the C3 linker (see figure). The triheterocyclic brace of a free base presets an intensive emission, strongly depending on the solvent viscosity and robustly affecting the excited-state lifetimes. A similar relationship has been observed for boron(III) complexes of phlorin-like oxatriphyrin(3.1.1)
- Novel λ3-Iodane-Based Functionalization of Synthetic Carbon Allotropes (SCAs)—Common Concepts and Quantification of the Degree of Addition
Ferdinand Hof, Ricarda A. Schäfer, Cornelius Weiss, Dr. Frank Hauke and Prof. Dr. Andreas Hirsch
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404662
Most accurately: A new wet chemical functionalization sequence for carbon allotropes applying λ3-iodanes is presented (see figure). By coupling thermogravimetric analysis with gas-chromatographic separation and mass-spectrometric characterization an exact determination of the degree of functionalization becomes feasible.
- Enantioselective Total Synthesis of the Lignan (+)-Linoxepin
Prof. Lutz F. Tietze, Dr. Jérôme Clerc, Simon Biller, Dr. Svenia-C. Duefert and Dr. Matthias Bischoff
Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404679
Smooth operation: The key feature in the enantioselective total synthesis of the lignan, (+)-linoxepin, is a Pd-catalyzed domino reaction consisting of a carbopalladation and a Mizoroki–Heck reaction using DavePhos as a bulky electron-rich ligand and an AgI salt as additive to suppress aromatization. The stereogenic center was introduced by an asymmetric regioselective hydroboration to give the natural product.
