Hybrid sponge: A rational strategy was developed by using a carbon nanotube (CNT) sponge as a 3D network template to fabricate hierarchical porous CNT@m-C@Pt core–shell hybrid structures (see picture: blue CNTs, green m-C (mesoporous carbon), silver Pt nanoparticles). These hybrid sponges show promising applications as high-performance flexible supercapacitor electrodes.
- Single-Atom Gold Catalysis in the Context of Developments in Parahydrogen-Induced Polarization

The hydrogens went in 2 by 2: Hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene and 1-butyne with parahydrogen is carried out by using a highly isolated heterogeneous monoatomic gold catalyst supported on multiwalled carbon nanotubes. The percentage of pairwise hydrogen addition is found to be approximately 10 % for this catalyst in which the catalytically active center is a single atom.
- Pd-Catalyzed Difluoromethylation of Vinyl Bromides, Triflates, Tosylates, and Nonaflates
Dalu Chang, Yang Gu and Prof. Dr. Qilong Shen
Article first published online: 6 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201500551
Vinyl fantasy: Pd-catalyzed difluoromethylation of di-, tri- or tetra-substituted vinyl bromides, triflates, tosylates and nonaflates under mild conditions is described. The reaction tolerates a wide range of functional groups, such as bromide, chloride, fluoride, ester, amine, nitrile, and protected carbonyl, thus providing a general route for the preparation of difluoromethylated alkenes.
- Non-enzymatic Ribonucleotide Reduction in the Prebiotic Context
Ivan Dragičević, Dr. Danijela Barić, Dr. Borislav Kovačević, Prof. Bernard T. Golding and Dr. David M. Smith

Ancient DNA formation: Although most discussions of life’s origin focus on heterolytic chemistry, many radical processes have been recognised in modern biology. Inspired by the radical mechanism catalysed by today’s ribonucleotide reductase enzymes, this study extrapolates back, exploring the possibility of prebiotic radical chemistry with the aid of computational techniques (see scheme).
- Experimental Evidence of Chemical Components in the Bonding of Helium and Neon with Neutral Molecules

He donates electrons: The complexes of He and Ne with CCl4, which are usually assumed of the van der Waals type, also have a chemical component. This situation had now been unambiguously caught by experiment, unraveling their character and origin (a charge transfer, CT, from the noble gas to the CCl bond) by theoretical calculations.
