  1. Dealloying of Mesoporous PtCu Alloy Film for the Synthesis of Mesoporous Pt Films with High Electrocatalytic Activity

    Dr. Cuiling Li, Dr. Victor Malgras, Dr. Ali Aldalbahi and Prof. Yusuke Yamauchi

    Article first published online: 18 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403181

    Knowing how to treat a film: Mesoporous Pt film with a high electrocatalytic activity was successfully synthesized by a dealloying treatment of the mesoporous PtCu alloy film prepared through electrochemical micelle assembly. The resulting mesoporous electrode exhibits high current density and superior stability during methanol oxidation reaction.

  2. Enantioselective Addition of Dialkylzinc to Aromatic Aldimines Mediated by Camphor-Derived Chiral β-Amino Alcohols

    Wei-Ming Huang and Prof. Biing-Jiun Uang

    Article first published online: 18 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403240

    Add it up: The enantioselective addition of diethylzinc or dimethylzinc to N-(diphenylphosphinoyl)imines mediated by 1 or 2 could be achieved in high yields and enantioselectivities. The catalytic loading of 1 or 2 a could be reduced to 10 mol % for methylation or ethylation of imines in high yields and enantioselectivities (79–96 %) when the reaction was conducted in the presence of 1.8 equiv of methanol.

  3. Tuning CO2 Uptake and Reversible Iodine Adsorption in Two Isoreticular MOFs through Ligand Functionalization

    Srinivasulu Parshamoni, Suresh Sanda, Dr. Himanshu Sekhar Jena and Prof. Dr. Sanjit Konar

    Article first published online: 18 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403123

    Quick on the uptake: Two isoreticular CdII based micro-porous interpenetrated metal–organic frameworks are reported, which show significant CO2 uptake at room temperature, selectivity over methane, and reversible I2 capture and release. It has been revealed that the presence of additional polar functional group increase the proficiency of the MOF as adsorbent.

  4. tris-Heteroleptic Cyclometalated Iridium(III) Complexes with Ambipolar or Electron Injection/Transport Features for Highly Efficient Electrophosphorescent Devices

    Xianbin Xu, Xiaolong Yang, Dr. Yong Wu, Prof. Guijiang Zhou, Prof. Chao Wu and Prof. Wai-Yeung Wong

    Article first published online: 15 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403057

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    You have to fine tune things: tris-Heteroleptic phosphorescent iridium(III) complexes were developed. The different electronic features of the two cyclometalating ligands not only effectively tuned the photophysical properties of the corresponding complexes but also furnished ambipolar or electron injection/transport properties to the tris-heteroleptic phosphorescent emitters.

  5. Synthesis of Heterocycles by Formal Cycloadditions of Isocyanides

    Art Kruithof, Dr. Eelco Ruijter and Prof. Dr. Romano V. A. Orru

    Article first published online: 15 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403207

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Formal behavior: The demand for improved synthetic methods towards heterocyclic scaffolds and their derivatives is high and continuous. In the recent literature, numerous reactions have been reported that involve formal cycloadditions of isocyanides with conjugated heterodienes. This Focus Review aims at mapping this reactivity and at providing insight into the relationship between the various reported reaction partners and the observed reactivity modes.
