  1. Unprecedented Sensitization of Visible and Near-Infrared Lanthanide Luminescence by Using a Tetrathiafulvalene-Based Chromophore

    Min Feng, Dr. Fabrice Pointillart, Dr. Boris Le Guennic, Bertrand Lefeuvre, Dr. Stéphane Golhen, Dr. Olivier Cador, Dr. Olivier Maury and Dr. Lahcène Ouahab

    Article first published online: 1 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402385

    Multi Emissions: The multi-emitting tetrathiafulvalene-substituted 2,6-di(pyrazol-1-yl)-4-pyridine (dpp) ligand (L) acts as an efficient organic chromophore for near-infrared and also, for the first time, for visible lanthanide luminescence (see figure).

  2. Ultrasensitive Fluorescence Polarization Aptasensors Based on Exonuclease Signal Amplification and Polystyrene Nanoparticle Amplification

    Dr. Yong Huang, Xiaoqian Liu, Ming Shi, Prof. Shulin Zhao, Dr. Kun Hu, Prof. Zhen-Feng Chen and Prof. Hong Liang

    Article first published online: 31 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402563

    Being somewhat polarizing: The combination of T7 exonuclease signal amplification and polystyrene nanoparticle amplification is exploited to design novel, highly sensitive and specific fluorescence polarization aptasensors. This approach holds promise as a generic platform for the development of amplified aptasensors for detecting target molecules.

  3. Efficient Noble-Metal-Free γ-Fe2O3@NiO Core–Shell Nanostructured Photocatalysts for Water Oxidation

    Xiaoqiang Du, Jie Wei, Jinli Zhao, Ruixin Han and Prof. Yong Ding

    Article first published online: 31 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402652

    Water stones: γ-Fe2O3@NiO core–shell nanostructures exhibited superior catalytic performance in the photocatalytic oxidation of water with Na2S2O8 as a sacrificial electron acceptor and [Ru(bpy)3](ClO4)2 as a photosensitizer.

  4. Electrochemically Controlled Growth of Au[BOND]Pt Alloy Nanowires and Nanodendrites

    Xiaojun Yi, Prof. Gang Yu, Fangfang Chang, Zhi Hui Xie, Tan Nhat Tran, Prof. Bo Nian Hu and Prof. Chuan-Jian Zhong

    Article first published online: 31 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402442

    A mechanical mind: This work reveals new mechanistic insights into the electrochemically controlled growth of Au[BOND]Pt alloy nanowires and nanodendrites with controllable composition, size, morphology, and phase structures (see figure). The origin of the branching growth and the control of the alloy phase structures are demonstrated for the first time.

  5. Supramolecular Phosphatases Formed by the Self-Assembly of the Bis(Zn2+–Cyclen) Complex, Copper(II), and Barbital Derivatives in Water

    Dr. Mohd Zulkefeli, Dr. Yosuke Hisamatsu, Asami Suzuki, Yuya Miyazawa, Dr. Motoo Shiro and Prof. Dr. Shin Aoki

    Article first published online: 30 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402513

    Bar brawl: A 2:2:2 supramolecule based on the self-assembly of Zn2L1 and Cu2+ with barbital (Bar) has a Cu2(μ-OH)2 core and accelerates the hydrolysis of mono(4-nitrophenyl)phosphate (see scheme). Bar units with hydroxyl groups on their side chains for use in the formation of 2:2:2 supramolecules with functional groups near the Cu2(μ-OH)2 core were also prepared.
