  1. Thermodriven Micrometer-Scale Aqueous-Phase Separation of Amphiphilic Oligoethylene Glycol Analogues

    Shunichi Kawasaki, Dr. Takahiro Muraoka, Haruki Obara, Takerou Ishii, Prof. Tsutomu Hamada and Prof. Kazushi Kinbara

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402134

    Now you see them… Thermodriven micrometer-scale aqueous phase separation of amphiphilic monodisperse oligoethylene glycol analogues with aromatic units is reported. Microscopic observations reveal hysteretic aggregate formation and disassembly processes (see picture). As an application of this thermodriven phase separation, the extraction of aromatic and hydrophobic peptides has been successfully demonstrated.

  2. Through-Space Conjugated Molecular Wire Comprising Three π-Electron Systems

    Prof. Dr. Yasuhiro Morisaki, Naoya Kawakami, Shotaro Shibata and Prof. Dr. Yoshiki Chujo

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402653

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A journey through space: A [2.2]paracyclophane-based through-space conjugated oligomer comprising three π-electron systems was synthesized. This oligomer exhibited efficient unidirectional and stepwise energy transfer through the stacked π-electron systems.

  3. Photo- and pH-Tunable Multicolor Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Based Spiropyran- and BODIPY-Conjugated Polymer with Graphene Oxide

    Shazid Md. Sharker, Chan Jin Jeong, Sung Min Kim, Jung-Eun Lee, Prof. Ji Hoon Jeong, Prof. Insik In, Prof. Haeshin Lee and Prof. Sung Young Park

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402399

    Multicolor sensing: Reduced graphene oxide can be coupled with a polymer conjugated with photochromic spiropyran (SP) dye and hydrophobic boron dipyrromethane (BODIPY) dye to trigger multicolor bioimaging sequentially and simultaneously (see figure).

  4. Pyrene-Based Fluorescent Supramolecular Hydrogel: Scaffold for Energy Transfer

    Subrata Mukherjee, Tanmoy Kar and Prof. Prasanta Kumar Das

    Article first published online: 23 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402358

    Self-assembled gelation: A pyrene-containing, low molecular weight gelator (see figure) shows high gelation efficiency for the formation of supramolecular fluorescent gels with notable mechanical strength. The presence of only 0.00075 % w/v of acridine orange resulted in about 50 % quenching of the fluorescence intensity of the gel (yellow spectrum) through efficient fluorescence resonance energy transfer to the hosted fluorophore (red spectrum).

  5. A Mix-and-Read Fluorescence Strategy for the Switch-On Probing of Kinase Activity Based on an Aptameric-Peptide/Graphene-Oxide Platform

    Chunyang Lei, Dr. Xiahong Xu, Jiang Zhou, Xin Liu, Prof. Dr. Zhou Nie, Meng Qing, Pei Li, Dr. Yan Huang and Prof. Shouzhuo Yao

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402221

    Star mix: A simple, rapid strategy for probing kinase activity, based on an aptameric-peptide/graphene-oxide platform, offers high sensitivity and good selectivity. This method allows kinase activity in cell lysate to be assayed within 15 min.
