Advanced High-Voltage Aqueous Lithium-Ion Battery Enabled by “Water-in-Bisalt” Electrolyte

Ready salted: A new class of electrolyte a “water-in-bisalt” electrolyte, that is, an electrolyte made from two salts, has a wider electrochemical stability window for aqueous lithium-ion batteries. The unprecedented high ionic density in the solution effectively suppresses hydrogen evolution and promotes the formation of a more protective solid electrolyte interphase (SEI).

Angewandte Chemie 19/2016: New Tricks

Angewandte Chemie 19/2016: New TricksIn this issue, T. Hudlicky et al. review the syntheses of amaryllidaceae constitutents and their unnatural derivatives. How do structure–activity relationships guide future modifications? The Highlight deals with photoregulation and gene expression by coenzyme B12 (K. Gruber and B. Kräutler).

In the Communications section, T. Weil et al. demonstrate the bottom-up fabrication of nanopatterned polymers on DNA origami by in situ radical polymerization (see picture). J. A. Lercher et al. discuss the mechanism of formation of the first carbon–carbon bond and the first olefin in the conversion of methanol to hydrocarbons. O. M. Bakr et al. observed a strong enhancement of luminescence as a consequence of gold doping of silver nanoclusters.

Hot Paper: Muropeptides in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and their Role as Elicitors of β-Lactam-Antibiotic Resistance

Dr. Mijoon Lee, Supurna Dhar, Dr. Stefania De Benedetti, Dr. Dusan Hesek, Dr. Bill Boggess, Dr. Blas Blázquez, Prof. Kalai Mathee and Prof. Shahriar Mobashery

Muropeptides in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and their Role as Elicitors of β-Lactam-Antibiotic Resistance

Muropeptides: A total of 20 muropeptides, which are breakdown products of peptidoglycan, were isolated from Pseuromonas aeruginosa and their structures were elucidated. The least abundant of these metabolites is present at 100 and the most abundant at 55 000 molecules per bacterium. Two of these compounds were shown to be involved in the induction of β-lactamase expression. This effect is the basis for resistance to β-lactam antibiotics in P. aeruginosa.

Vladimir Sayevich, Bin Cai, Albrecht Benad, Danny Haubold, Luisa Sonntag, Prof. Nikolai Gaponik, Dr. Vladimir Lesnyak and Prof. Alexander Eychmüller

3D Assembly of All-Inorganic Colloidal Nanocrystals into Gels and Aerogels

An assembly approach for a variety of electrostatically stabilized all-inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals is based on their linking with appropriate ions into multibranched gel networks. The resulting aerogels are highly porous monolithic structures, which preserve the quantum confinement of their building blocks.

VIP: A Phytochrome Sensory Domain Permits Receptor Activation by Red Light

Eva Reichhart, Dr. Alvaro Ingles-Prieto, Alexandra-Madelaine Tichy, Catherine McKenzie and Dr. Harald Janovjak

A Phytochrome Sensory Domain Permits Receptor Activation by Red Light

Go deep with red: The sensory domain (S) of the cyanobacterial phytochrome 1 (CPH1) was repurposed to induce the homodimerization of proteins in living cells by red light. By using this domain, light-activated protein kinases were engineered that can be activated orthogonally from many fluorescent proteins and through mammalian tissue. Pr/Pfr=red-/far-red-absorbing state of CPH1.

Dual-Doped Molybdenum Trioxide Nanowires: A Bifunctional Anode for Fiber-Shaped Asymmetric Supercapacitors and Microbial Fuel Cells

High-performance fiber-shaped electrodes: A strategy for dual doping with nitrogen and low-valent molybdenum atoms was used to improve the electrochemical properties of MoO3. The dual-doped MoO3 nanowires showed exceptional device performances as bifunctional anode material for both fiber-shaped asymmetric supercapacitors (ASCs) and microbial fuel cells (MFCs).

Facile Surfactant-Free Synthesis of p-type SnSe Nanoplates with Exceptional Thermoelectric Power Factors

A surfactant-free aqueous solution methodology has been developed for the straightforward synthesis of SnSe nanoplates in gram quantities, which can be hot-pressed into nanostructured compacts with much higher thermoelectric power factors than surfactant-prepared products and comparable values to bulk polycrystalline counterparts.

Magnetically and Near-Infrared Light-Powered Supramolecular Nanotransporters for the Remote Control of Enzymatic Reactions

Nanorobots: Magnetic nanoparticle–carbon nanohorn–liposome supramolecular nanotransporters were developed. The remotely controlled release of functional molecules contained in the nanotransporters was achieved by applying a magnetic field and near-infrared laser light. The nanotransporters enabled enzymatic reactions at target sites in cells and mice.

Hot Paper: Quantitative Single-Cell mRNA Analysis in Hydrogel Beads

Agata Rakszewska, Rosa J. Stolper, Anna B. Kolasa, Dr. Aigars Piruska and Prof. Dr. Wilhelm T. S. Huck

Quantitative Single-Cell mRNA Analysis in Hydrogel Beads

Catch me if you can: Hydrogel beads functionalized with LNA (locked nucleic acid) can serve as a matrix to capture mRNA from lysed single cells. mRNA quantification free of pre-amplification bias is ensured by using padlock probes and rolling circle amplification followed by hybridization with fluorescent probes. The number of transcripts in individual cells is assessed by counting fluorescent dots inside gel beads. Scale bar=50 µm.
