53_08/2014Cover Picture: Electron Transfer in a Supramolecular Associate of a Fullerene Fragment (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 8/2014)

Two bowl-shaped molecules of complementary electronic character, a donor truxene derivative and an acceptor hemifullerene, have been found to form heteromolecular dimers in solution with binding constants on the order of 103 m-1, as described by E. Ortí, D. M. Guldi, L. T. Scott, N. Martín, et al. in their Communication on page 2170 ff. This is the first time that a fullerene fragment has been found to mimic the behavior of C60 as an electron acceptor.

Rhodopsin Dynamicsfor001

H. Schwalbe et  al. describe in their Communication on page 2078 ff. the use of time-resolved liquid-state NMR spectroscopy to study the kinetics of the light-activation process of the mammalian visual dim-light photoreceptor rhodopsin.


Hydrogen Bondsfor002

In their Communication on page 2138 ff., H. T. Black and D. F. Perepichka show that the solid-state arrangement of donor/acceptor components in crystalline p/n heterojunctions is controlled by complementary hydrogen bonding.


Synthetic Methodsfor003

In their Communication on page 2212 ff., M. Pohmakotr et al. describe a stereoselective cascade process that involves radical cyclization and ipso-1,4-aryl migration for the synthesis of 3,3-difluoro-2-propanoylbicyclo[3.3.0]octanes.
