Angewandte Chemie 52/2014: Happy Holidays

Angewandte Chemie 52/2014: Happy HolidaysIn the last issue of 2014, J. Zhi et al. review research on diamond nanowires. How can their exceptional properties, such as negative electron affinity, chemical inertness, high elastic modulus, hardness, and thermal conductivity at room temperature by explained and put to use? The Highlights deal with organocatalytic click chemistry (S. S. V. Ramasastry) and asymmetric redox organocatalysis as a new entry to vitamin E (T. Netscher). In an Essay, J. C. del Valle et al. look back on the life of photochemistry pioneer Michael Kasha.

In the Communications section, T. Livinghouse et al. present an intramolecular metalloamination of N,N-dimethylhydrazinoalkenes as a versatile method to access functionalized nitrogen heterocycles (see picture). P. Londero et al. show how to detect organic colorants in historical paintings by means of UV laser ablation surface-enhanced Raman microspectroscopy. K. V. Gothelf et al. report on the synthesis, dynamic combinatorial chemistry, and PCR amplification of disulfide-linked oligonucleotides.

The Angewandte team and Wiley-VCH publishers would like to take this opportunity to thank all authors, readers, referees, and board members for their continued support throughout 2014 and wish them all a happy 2015.

Hot Paper: Unusual Ultra-Hydrophilic, Porous Carbon Cuboids for Atmospheric-Water Capture

Dr. Guang-Ping Hao, Giovanni Mondin, Dr. Zhikun Zheng, Tim Biemelt, Stefan Klosz, René Schubel, Prof. Alexander Eychmüller and Prof. Stefan Kaskel

Unusual Ultra-Hydrophilic, Porous Carbon Cuboids for Atmospheric-Water CaptureThirsty materials: A new class of ultra-hydrophilic porous carbon cuboids shows the best performance for atmospheric-water capture among porous carbons to date. It may serve as a model material for research on carbon chemistry, a new material for water capture, and find use in applications requiring highly hydrophilic surfaces, porosity, and stability.

Hot Paper: Phosphorus-Doped Graphitic Carbon Nitrides Grown in Situ on Carbon-Fiber Paper: Flexible and Reversible Oxygen Electrodes

Dr. Tian Yi Ma, Jingrun Ran, Prof. Sheng Dai, Prof. Mietek Jaroniec and Prof. Shi Zhang Qiao

Phosphorus-Doped Graphitic Carbon Nitrides Grown in Situ on Carbon-Fiber Paper: Flexible and Reversible Oxygen ElectrodesElectrodes, on a roll: Flexible and reversible oxygen electrodes composed of nanostructured P-doped graphitic carbon nitrides grown on carbon-fiber paper exhibit outstanding catalytic activity and stability towards both oxygen reduction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reactions (OER) in different folded and rolled-up forms. They can be used as efficient air cathodes in Zn–air batteries.

Hot Paper: Hydrodeoxygenation of Vicinal OH Groups over Heterogeneous Rhenium Catalyst Promoted by Palladium and Ceria Support

Nobuhiko Ota, Dr. Masazumi Tamura, Dr. Yoshinao Nakagawa, Prof. Kazu Okumura and Prof. Keiichi Tomishige

Hydrodeoxygenation of Vicinal OH Groups over Heterogeneous Rhenium Catalyst Promoted by Palladium and Ceria SupportUltra-fast double cutting: High yields (>99 %), turnover frequencies (TOF, 300 h−1), and turnover numbers (TON, 10 000) are achieved in the simultaneous hydrodeoxygenation of 1,4-anhydroerythritol to tetrahydrofuran over heterogeneous ReOx–Pd/CeO2 catalyst. This catalyst can be applied to sugar alcohols; mono-alcohols and diols are obtained in high yields (≥85 %).

Hot Paper: Synthesis of Inorganic Structural Isomers By Diffusion-Constrained Self-Assembly of Designed Precursors: A Novel Type of Isomerism

Marco Esters, Matti B. Alemayehu, Zachary Jones, Dr. N. T. Nguyen, Dr. Michael D. Anderson, Corinna Grosse, Prof. Saskia F. Fischer and Prof. David C. Johnson

Synthesis of Inorganic Structural Isomers By Diffusion-Constrained Self-Assembly of Designed Precursors: A Novel Type of IsomerismJust as organic molecules have isomers resulting from different interconnectivity (as shown for C4H8), layered compounds have similar structural isomers. The six possible structural isomers containing four Se-Nb-Se trilayers and four bilayers of PbSe were synthesized from designed precursors. Thus, thousands of new compounds may be selectively prepared from fragments of known compounds.

VIP: CO-Extrusion in Homogeneous Gold Catalysis: Reactivity of Gold Acyl Species Generated through Water Addition to Gold Vinylidenes

M. Sc. Janina Bucher, B. Sc. Tim Stößer, Dr. Matthias Rudolph, Dr. Frank Rominger and Prof. Dr. A. Stephen K. Hashmi

CO-Extrusion in Homogeneous Gold Catalysis: Reactivity of Gold Acyl Species Generated through Water Addition to Gold VinylidenesGold acyl intermediates are generated through the addition of water to gold vinylidene intermediates. The hitherto barely known gold acyl species are shown to undergo an extrusion of CO, an elementary step so far unknown in homogeneous gold catalysis. The reaction sequence constitutes a new gold-catalyzed decarbonylative indene synthesis.

VIP: Cystobactamids: Myxobacterial Topoisomerase Inhibitors Exhibiting Potent Antibacterial Activity

Dr. Sascha Baumann, Dr. Jennifer Herrmann, Dr. Ritesh Raju, Dipl.-Ing. Heinrich Steinmetz, Dr. Kathrin I. Mohr, Dr. Stephan Hüttel, Dr. Kirsten Harmrolfs, Prof. Dr. Marc Stadler and Prof. Dr. Rolf Müller

Cystobactamids: Myxobacterial Topoisomerase Inhibitors Exhibiting Potent Antibacterial ActivityAgainst multidrug resistance: A novel chemical scaffold with very pronounced activity against bacterial topoisomerases has been isolated from myxobacteria. Cystobactamid 919-2, as the most active derivative, is a potent antibacterial agent against numerous pathogens, including some Gram-negative species, such as E. coli and A. baumannii (see Scheme; rel and SC denote relaxed and supercoiled E. coli DNA, respectively).

Hot Paper: Screening for Protein Phosphorylation Using Nanoscale Reactions on Microdroplet Arrays

Simon K. Küster, Dr. Martin Pabst, Prof. Renato Zenobi and Prof. Petra S. Dittrich

Screening for Protein Phosphorylation Using Nanoscale Reactions on Microdroplet ArraysPhosphopeptide screening: A mass spectrometry-based screening method detects protein phosphorylation in complex protein mixtures without extensive MS/MS experiments. The method employs droplet microfluidics to integrate nanoliter phosphatase reactions in a nano-LC-MALDI-MS workflow. The selective dephosphorylation of every second LC fraction induces characteristic peak fluctuations that can be used to identify even low-abundant phosphopeptides.

High-Resolution Single-Molecule Fluorescence Imaging of Zeolite Aggregates within Real-Life Fluid Catalytic Cracking ParticlesReal-life fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalyst particles have been studied with a combination of single-molecule fluorescence nanoscopy and stochastic optical fluctuation imaging methods. Zeolite ZSM-5 aggregates and their reactivity could be mapped with unprecedented spatiotemporal resolution and sensitivity, revealing significant differences in turnover frequencies of the embedded individual zeolite particulates.

VIP: Total Synthesis of Albicidin: A Lead Structure from Xanthomonas albilineans for Potent Antibacterial Gyrase Inhibitors

Julian Kretz, Dennis Kerwat, Vivien Schubert, Stefan Grätz, Alexander Pesic, Siamak Semsary, Stéphane Cociancich, Monique Royer and Prof. Dr. Roderich D. Süssmuth

Total Synthesis of Albicidin: A Lead Structure from Xanthomonas albilineans for Potent Antibacterial Gyrase Inhibitors New antibiotics are urgently needed in view of bacterial resistance to established drugs. Albicidin shows activity against various Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, thus making it a promising lead candidate for drug development. The first total synthesis of albicidin was achieved through a convergent synthetic approach that is applicable to the production of derivatives for structure–activity studies.

Hot Paper: A Hierarchical Tin/Carbon Composite as an Anode for Lithium-Ion Batteries with a Long Cycle Life

Dr. Xingkang Huang, Dr. Shumao Cui, Dr. Jingbo Chang, Peter B. Hallac, Christopher R. Fell, Yanting Luo, Bernhard Metz, Junwei Jiang, Patrick T. Hurley and Prof. Junhong Chen

A Hierarchical Tin/Carbon Composite as an Anode for Lithium-Ion Batteries with a Long Cycle LifeHigh capacity anodes: A tin/carbon hierarchical structure was designed, in which some of the nanosized Sn particles are anchored on the tips of carbon nanotubes that are rooted on the surfaces of microsized hollow carbon cubes while other Sn nanoparticles are encapsulated in the hollow carbon cubes. Such a unique structure allows the Sn particles to accommodate the volume change upon lithiation.
