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).

Trap the light fantastic: Luminescence-functionalized metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) were synthesized by using Zn2+ as the central ion and a Ru complex as the ligand. This provided a method to use a metallic complex instead of a small organic molecule as a ligand to prepare MOFs. Moreover, MOFs were applied to the construction of a sensitive electrogenerated chemiluminescence biosensor (see figure).
- Glycosyl-Templated Chiral Helix Stapling of Ethynylpyridine Oligomers by Alkene Metathesis between Inter-Pitch Side Chains

Stapling makes more happen: Ethynylpyridine oligomers have been prepared as helical structures by using a chiral template. These structures can be stapled by alkene metathesis of the side chains (see figure). Subsequent removal of the chiral template by acidolysis produces template-free stapled helical oligomers, which are resistant to polar solvents and heating.
- Cooperative Binding of Divalent Diamides by N-Alkyl Ammonium Resorcinarene Chlorides

Cooperative guests: N-Alkyl ammonium resorcinarene chlorides cooperatively bind a series of homoditopic alkyl diamides of varying spacer lengths (see figure). The highest binding was observed with the six-carbon spacer guest. The cooperative binding of these divalent guests was studied in solution by using 1H NMR titration studies and supplemented by diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY), X-ray crystallography, and mass spectrometry.
- Centromeric Alpha-Satellite DNA Adopts Dimeric i-Motif Structures Capped by AT Hoogsteen Base Pairs
Dr. Miguel Garavís, Dr. Núria Escaja, Prof. Valérie Gabelica, Dr. Alfredo Villasante and Prof. Carlos González

Nucleosome organization: All human centromeric alpha-satellites contain sequences that can form dimeric i-motif structures in vitro (see figure). These regions occur every 171 bp and are found at the entrance and exit of the nucleosome. This finding suggests that the i-motif may play a role in the higher order nucleosome organization at the centromere.
