    High selectivity for lipids: The solvent-dependent photophysical properties and lipophilic nature of a novel carborane-coumarin fluorophore results in exquisite selectivity toward cellular lipid droplets.

  2. A Tunable Cyclic Container: Guest-Induced Conformational Switching, Efficient Guest Exchange, and Selective Isolation of C70 from a Fullerene Mixture

    Pick and choose: A tunable cyclic porphyrin dimer (1; see figure) has been employed for the efficient encapsulation and selective exchange of aromatic guests (TCNQ/C60/C70) by adjusting its conformation. Moreover, a high binding affinity of the cyclic dimer for C70 compared with C60 allowed easy extraction and efficient isolation of C70 from a C60/C70 fullerene mixture.

  3. Activation of Cellulose Assisted by CO2 for the Preparation of a Superhydrophobic Nanocoating

    Dr. Jinfang Wang, Dr. Zhimin Xue, Tingting Yu, Prof. Dr. Zhimin Liu and Dr. Tiancheng Mu

    Superhydrophobic cellulose: An environmentally benign method for fabricating superhydrophobic materials by using organic base based solvents in which cellulose can be dissolved and activated is reported. The dissolved cellulose could be chemically modified with a silanization reagent, and the solvent could be recycled after CO2 was removed. The obtained cellulose nanocoating exhibited excellent hydrophobic effects.

  4. Porphyrin Bound to i-Motifs: Intercalation versus External Groove Binding

    Tingxiao Qin, Dr. Kunhui Liu, Dr. Di Song, Dr. Chunfan Yang and Prof. Dr. Hongmei Su

    Bound for greatness: The intercalation binding mode through the π–π stacking of the porphyrin macrocycle and the C:C+ hemiprotonated base pair has been identified for the first time (see figure). The coexistent binding modes of intercalation versus external major-groove binding were determined quantitatively to further understand the porphyrin–i-motif interactions.

  5. Nitrogen-Doped Graphitic Porous Carbon Nanosheets Derived from In Situ Formed g-C3N4 Templates for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction

    Holey sheet! A high N-doping level, large surface area, and high porosity were achieved in nitrogen-doped graphitic carbon nanosheets prepared by the replication of polysaccharide on in situ synthesized graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) sheet templates (see figure). A similar four-electron transfer pathway was exhibited as calculated from the yield of H2O2.
