  1. Magnetically-Active Carbon Nanotubes at Work

    Dr. Antoine Stopin, Florent Pineux, Dr. Riccardo Marega and Prof. Dr. Davide Bonifazi

    Article first published online: 28 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500944

    Nano-synergy: Merging of carbon nanotubes and magnetic nanoparticles gave birth to hybrids featuring properties not in reach with only the graphitic or metallic cores themselves. This has opened the way to a wide range of applications, such as magnetic fluid hyperthermia or magnetic resonance imaging among others (see figure).

  2. Rapid Synthesis of Thiophene-Based, Organic Dyes for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) by a One-Pot, Four-Component Coupling Approach

    Keisuke Matsumura, Soichi Yoshizaki, Dr. Masato. M. Maitani, Prof. Yuji Wada, Dr. Yuhei Ogomi, Prof. Shuzi Hayase, Dr. Tatsuo Kaiho, Dr. Shinichiro Fuse, Dr. Hiroshi Tanaka and Prof. Takashi Takahashi

    Article first published online: 28 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500979

    All-in-one! A one-pot, four-component coupling approach was developed for the synthesis of thiophene-based, organic dyes (see scheme). Seven dyes were successfully synthesized in good yields under mild reaction conditions. Evaluation of photovoltaic properties revealed that the dyes containing either a n-hexyloxyphenyl amine donor or our developed, nonplanar donor without an EDOT moiety exerted good cell performance.

  3. β-Hydrogen Elimination Reactions of Nickel and Palladium Methoxides Stabilised by PCP Pincer Ligands

    Dr. Luis M. Martínez-Prieto, Elena Ávila, Dr. Pilar Palma, Dr. Eleuterio Álvarez and Prof. Dr. Juan Cámpora

    Article first published online: 28 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500652

    Feel the pinch: Stabilisation of nickel or palladium methoxide complexes with PCP pincer ligands does suppress β-hydrogen elimination (see scheme).

  4. Construction of a Chiral Silicon Center by Rhodium-Catalyzed Enantioselective Intramolecular Hydrosilylation

    Dr. Yuki Naganawa, Tomoya Namba, Mayu Kawagishi and Prof. Dr. Hisao Nishiyama

    Article first published online: 28 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501568

    Si, por favor: Rhodium-catalyzed enantioselective desymmetrizing intramolecular hydrosilylation of symmetrically disubstituted hydrosilanes is described. An axially chiral N,N,O-tridentate phenanthroline ligand is found to form an effective chiral catalyst for this transformation, providing cyclic five-membered organosilanes with chiral silicon centers with up to 91 % ee.

  5. Conformational Tuning of the Intramolecular Electronic Coupling in Molecular-Wire Biruthenium Complexes Bridged by Biphenyl Derivatives

    Dan-Dan Kong, Lu-Sha Xue, Rui Jang, Dr. Bin Liu, Dr. Xiang-Gao Meng, Prof. Dr. Shan Jin, Ya-Ping Ou, Xiao Hao and Prof. Dr. Sheng-Hua Liu

    Article first published online: 27 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500509

    A torsionary tale: A series of biphenyl-bridged binuclear ruthenium vinyl complexes were synthesized and their properties investigated by electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods. The results clearly showed that the electron-transfer and redox processes of these complexes could be modulated by changing the torsion angle ϕ between the two phenyl rings from coplanar to perpendicular (see figure).
