  1. Why p-Cymene? Conformational Effect in Asymmetric Hydrogenation of Aromatic Ketones with a η6-Arene/Ruthenium(II) Catalyst

    Aki Matsuoka, Dr. Christian A. Sandoval, Prof. Dr. Masanobu Uchiyama, Prof. Dr. Ryoji Noyori and Prof. Dr. Hiroshi Naka

    Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402979

    Think global: Global reaction route mapping (GRRM) methods conveniently define transition states in asymmetric hydrogenation and transfer hydrogenation of aromatic ketones via the [RuH{(S,S)-TsNCH(C6H5)CH(C6H5)NH2}(η6-p-cymene)] intermediate. Multiple electrostatic CH/π interactions are the common motif in the preferred diastereometric structures.

  2. Polyoxometalate-Based Entangled Coordination Networks Induced by an Extended Bis(triazole) Ligand

    Dr. Xiu-Li Hao, Yuan-Yuan Ma, Wen-Zhe Zhou, Dr. Hong-Ying Zang, Dr. Yong-Hui Wang and Prof. Yang-Guang Li

    Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402958

    Creating a new kind of network: The hydrothermal reaction system containing transition metal ions, 4,4′-bis(1,2,4-triazol-1-ylmethyl)biphenyl (BBPTZ), and Keggin-type polyoxometalates (POMs) led to the preparation of new POM-based coordination networks with entangled and porous structural features. The compounds exhibit a good stability and photocatalytic activity towards MB degradation under irradiation with UV light.

  3. An FITC-BODIPY FRET Couple: Application to Selective, Ratiometric Detection and Bioimaging of Cysteine

    Dong Hee Ma, Dokyoung Kim, Takuya Akisawa, Kyung-Ha Lee, Prof. Kyong-Tai Kim and Prof. Kyo Han Ahn

    Article first published online: 24 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403073

    Don′t FRET: A novel FRET system of a fluorescein dye and its potential for the selective detection of cysteine has been demonstrated through ratiometric fluorescence imaging and quantification in cells and human blood plasma.

  4. Thermodynamic Phase Transition Triggered by Distinct Distortion and Ordering of Dipropylammonium Picrate

    Yuelan Zhou, Tianliang Chen, Dr. Zhihua Sun, Dr. Shuquan Zhang, Chengmin Ji, Prof. Cheng Song and Prof. Junhua Luo

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402997

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Entering a new phase: Dipropylammonium picrate undergoes a reversible first-order phase transition near 185.0 K, which is triggered by order–disorder transformations with a distortion motion of the chain-like alkylammonium cations. This work provides a useful strategy to explore new phase-transition materials based on flexible chain-like alkylammonium cations.

  5. Template-Directed In Situ Polymerization Preparation of Nanocomposites of PEDOT:PSS-Coated Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced Thermoelectric Property

    Zhuang Zhang, Prof. Guangming Chen, Prof. Hanfu Wang and Prof. Xin Li

    Article first published online: 22 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403100

    Raise your level of performance: Nanocomposites of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate)-coated multi-walled carbon nanotubes were fabricated via a template-directed in situ polymerization approach. Interestingly, the obtained nanocomposites display a greatly enhanced thermoelectric performance.
