ChemPlusChem 1/2014: New Features to Delight our Readers
In this issue, Petr Cigler, T. Govindaraju, and Radim Beranek are the first authors to feature as part of the new Early Career Series. Also, Petr Cigler was selected to give the inaugural interview, in which he discusses his career and research achievements. Of course the popular Cover Profiles continue, and an article on efficient DNA triplex–forming oligonucleotides by Vyacheslav Filichev and Carlos González is highlighted this month.

- Nanostructured Graphene/TiO2 Hybrids as High-Performance Anodes for Microbial Fuel Cells
Cui-e Zhao, Wen-Jing Wang, Dong Sun, Dr. Xin Wang, Prof. Jian-Rong Zhang and Prof. Jun-Jie Zhu
Article first published online: 17 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201400272
Microwave-assisted solvothermal synthesis of TiO2 on graphene led to the assembly of nanostructured G/TiO2 hybrids. The as-synthesized 20 % graphene /TiO2 hybrid exhibited effective bacterial adhesion (see figure) and high power density when used as an anode material in microbial fuel cells.
- Solvothermal Transformation of Calcium Oleate Precursor into Large-Sized Highly Ordered Arrays of Ultralong Hydroxyapatite Microtubes
Dr. Bing-Qiang Lu, Prof. Dr. Ying-Jie Zhu, Feng Chen, Chao Qi, Xin-Yu Zhao and Jing Zhao

By the skin of your teeth: Tooth enamel consists of highly organized arrays of hydroxyapatite (HAP) crystallites. The solvothermal synthesis of millimeter-scale 3D highly ordered arrays of ultralong HAP microtubes inspired by tooth enamel is reported. The ordered HAP microtube arrays form the shell of a core–shell-structured oblate sphere with a core of unordered HAP nanorods and a diameter of 6 mm (see figure).
- Chemical and Toxicological Investigations of a Previously Unknown Poisonous European Mushroom Tricholoma terreum
Xia Yin, Dr. Tao Feng, Prof. Jian-Hua Shang, Yun-Li Zhao, Fang Wang, Zheng-Hui Li, Ze-Jun Dong, Prof. Dr. Xiao-Dong Luo and Prof. Dr. Ji-Kai Liu
Article first published online: 17 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201400226
Murderous mushroom identified: A chemical investigation of the fruiting bodies of the mushroom Tricholoma terreum led to the isolation of 15 new triterpenoids including three that possessed a unique 5/6/7 trioxaspiroketal system and three that possessed an unprecedented carbon skeleton (see figure). Two compounds, saponaceolide B and saponaceolide M, were abundantly expressed in the mushroom and displayed acute toxicity, with LD50 values of 88.3 and 63.7 mg kg−1, respectively.
- All-Nitrogen Analogue of Ozone: Li3N3 Species
Prof. Dr. Jared K. Olson, Alexander S. Ivanov and Prof. Dr. Alexander I. Boldyrev
Article first published online: 17 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201402572
Polynitrogen ozone-like molecule: A theoretical prediction of a new polynitrogen molecule is reported. The geometry, electronic, and structural properties of Li3N3 with an unusual N33− kernel were studied using ab initio calculations. Chemical bonding analysis of Li3N3 reveals the same bonding pattern as in ozone molecule (see figure).
- Multicomponent, Flow Diazotization/Mizoroki–Heck Coupling Protocol: Dispelling Myths about Working with Diazonium Salts
Dr. Kumara S. Nalivela, Michael Tilley, Dr. Michael A. McGuire and Prof. Michael G. Organ
Article first published online: 17 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201402092
Diazonium salts in flow: A single pass flow diazotization/Mizoroki–Heck protocol has been developed for the production of cinnimoyl and styryl products. The factors that govern aryl diazonium salt stability have been examined in detail leading to the development of a MeOH/DMF co-solvent system in which the diazonium salts can be generated in the presence of all other reaction components and then coupled selectively (see scheme).
