- Photochemistry of a Puckered Ferracyclobutadiene in Liquid Solution Studied by Time-Resolved Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy
Dr. Joel Torres-Alacan, Dr. Ujjal Das, Boris Wezisla, Martin Straßmann, Prof. Dr. Alexander C. Filippou and Prof. Dr. Peter Vöhringer
Article first published online: 12 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201503300
Transition-metal complexes: The photochemical reactions of a puckered ferracyclobutadiene were studied in liquid solution with time-resolved vibrational spectroscopy following laser flash photolysis (see scheme).
- Hydrogenated Graphenes by Birch Reduction: Influence of Electron and Proton Sources on Hydrogenation Efficiency, Magnetism, and Electrochemistry
Alex Yong Sheng Eng, Prof. Zdeněk Sofer, Štěpán Huber, Daniel Bouša, Miroslav Maryško and Prof. Martin Pumera
Article first published online: 12 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201503219
Different tune: The process of hydrogenating graphene fundamentally changes its properties, and the efficiency of hydrogenation also results in different electrochemical electron-transfer rates and magnetic properties. Such variation is investigated by using different alkali metals and quenching agents in the Birch reduction (see figure).
- Reversible Assembly of a Supramolecular Cage Linked by Boron–Nitrogen Dative Bonds
M.Sc. Ayan Dhara and Dr. Florian Beuerle
Article first published online: 12 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502841
Cage creation: Boron–nitrogen dative bonds mediated the formation of supramolecular cages with bipyramidal shapes (see figure). Fully reversible assembly and disassembly could be achieved with changes in temperature.
- Fluorescent Coumarin–Artemisinin Conjugates as Mitochondria-Targeting Theranostic Probes for Enhanced Anticancer Activities
Dr. Xu Zhang, Qian Ba, Zhanni Gu, Dr. Diliang Guo, Prof. Yu Zhou, Prof. Yungen Xu, Prof. Hui Wang, Prof. Deju Ye and Prof. Hong Liu
Article first published online: 12 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201502543
Death signal: Fluorescent mitochondria-targeting theranostic probes obtained by linking a mitochondrial dye, coumarin-3-carboximide, with the antimalarial drug artemisinin are reported (see figure; ROS=reactive oxygen species). These probes allow simultaneous cancer-cell imaging and treatment.
- Efficient Biomimetic Hydroxylation Catalysis with a Bis(pyrazolyl)imidazolylmethane Copper Peroxide Complex
Dr. Claudia Wilfer, Patricia Liebhäuser, Dr. Alexander Hoffmann, Hannes Erdmann, Oleg Grossmann, Leander Runtsch, Eva Paffenholz, Rahel Schepper, Regina Dick, Prof. Dr. Matthias Bauer, Maximilian Dürr, Prof. Dr. Ivana Ivanović-Burmazović and Prof. Dr. Sonja Herres-Pawlis
Article first published online: 12 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201501685
Enhancing reactivity: Efficient catalysis is shown by a copper peroxide tyrosinase model complex consisting of pyrazolyl and imidazolyl moieties. The important role of the third N donor function (turquoise in figure) is highlighted in a reactivity study including a Hammett analysis.
