  1. Ultrathin FeSe2 Nanosheets: Controlled Synthesis and Application as a Heterogeneous Catalyst in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    Shoushuang Huang, Qingquan He, Wenlong Chen, Prof. Qiquan Qiao, Dr. Jiantao Zai and Prof. Xuefeng Qian

    Article first published online: 29 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406124

    Sheets ahead: Ultrathin 2D non-layered FeSe2 nanosheets with average thickness below 7 nm were prepared by a facile hot-injection method. The resulting nanosheets exhibit favorable structural features that render the sample a highly active and durable catalyst for the reduction of triiodide to iodide in dye-sensitized solar cells.

  2. Ratiometric Fluorescent Nanosensors for Copper(II) Based on Bis(rhodamine)-Derived PMOs with J-Type Aggregates

    Xiaoyong Qiu, Prof. Shuhua Han, Dr. Yongfeng Hu and Baowen Sun

    Article first published online: 29 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406143

    A new type of ratiometric fluorescent chemosensor for copper(II) based on periodic mesoporous organosilicas was successfully prepared by adjustment of the number of fluorescent bis(rhodamine)-derived J-type aggregates and monomers covalently incorporated in the framework (see figure).

  3. Tetraloop-like Geometries Could Form the Basis of the Catalytic Activity of the Most Ancient Ribooligonucleotides

    Petr Stadlbauer, Prof. Jiří Šponer, Dr. Giovanna Costanzo, Prof. Ernesto Di Mauro, Dr. Samanta Pino and Dr. Judit E. Šponer

    Article first published online: 29 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201406140

    The first ribozymes? Experiments and molecular dynamics simulations suggest that simple tetraloop-like overhang geometries could form the structural basis of the catalytic activity of the most ancient oligonucleotides (see figure).

  4. Na2S–Carbon Nanotube Fabric Electrodes for Room-Temperature Sodium–Sulfur Batteries

    Dr. Xingwen Yu and Prof. Arumugam Manthiram

    Article first published online: 29 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405344

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Overcoming inertness: A unique electrode, prepared by spreading multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT)-wrapped Na2S powder onto the MWCNT fabric, not only shows superior electrochemical performance but also allows the use of sodium-free anodes for room-temperature Na–S batteries.

  5. Kinetic Resolution in the [2+2] Cycloaddition of Ketenes: An Experimental and Theoretical Study

    Pauline Rullière, Dr. Sébastien Carret, Prof. Anne Milet and Prof. Jean-François Poisson

    Article first published online: 29 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405393

    Resolved by reactivity: The effect of Z/E-olefin stereochemistry in [2+2] cycloaddition with ketenes is presented from both experimental and theoretical aspects. This difference of reactivity allowed pure E-olefins to be isolated from Z/E mixtures of alkenes or enol ethers by kinetic resolution (see figure).
