  1. Residual Metal Impurity Aids Facile In Situ Electrochemical Surface Derivatization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    Sidhureddy Boopathi, Rajagopal Sudha, Shanmugam Senthil Kumar and Kanala Lakshminarasimha Phani

    Article first published online: 1 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402657

    It’s not an impurity, it’s a reagent! A facile in situ electrochemical strategy was developed that uses residual nickel impurities as reactants for anchoring nickel hexacyanoferrate (NiHCF) and Ni(OH)2/NiOOH on the surface of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs; see picture), and the thus-modified SWCNTs showed improved electrocatalytic properties. CV=cyclic voltammetry; GCE=glassy carbon electrode.

  2. Three-Residue Turn in β-Peptides Nucleated by a 12/10 Helix

    Dr. Gangavaram V. M. Sharma, Thota Anupama Yadav, Kanakaraju Marumudi, Prashanth Thodupunuri, Pothula Purushotham Reddy and Dr. Ajit C. Kunwar

    Article first published online: 1 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402465

    Beta testers: We report the design and synthesis of β peptides from the 1:1 alternation of β-Caa(r) (C-linked carbo-β-amino acid with a D-ribo furanoside side chain) and β-hGly with a novel ‘β-β-β’ three-residue turn and 14-member hydrogen bonding at the C terminus. The turn is nucleated by a 12/10 helix at the N terminus to form a ‘helix-turn’ motif stabilized by an intraresidue electrostatic interaction between the amide NH and furan oxygen (see figure).

  3. Unstrained Carbon[BOND]Carbon Bond Cleavage

    Dr. Hui Liu, Minghao Feng and Prof. Dr. Xuefeng Jiang

    Article first published online: 1 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402591

    Unstrained melody: The cleavage of unstrained C[BOND]C bonds is not only a quite attractive field; it is also a great challenge to organic chemists. This Focus Review highlights the development of unstrained C[BOND]C bond-cleavage reactions—categorized as metal or metal-free reactions—and includes the cleavage of single, double, and triple carbon[BOND]carbon bonds.

  4. Synthesis of Di- and Trixanthones that Display High Stability and a Visual Fluorescence Response to Strong Acid

    Dr. Baolin Wang, Jiafeng Shao, Dr. Taoshan Xu, Lichuan Chen, Jinlian Zhao, Yongliang Shao, Prof. Dr. Hao-Li Zhang and Prof. Dr. Xiangfeng Shao

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402815

    Tri and tri again: Dixanthones and an unprecedented C3h-symmetric trixanthone have been synthesized in three steps. These compounds possess a planar π-conjugated system and formed tight columnar stacks. Their fluorescence emission displays distinct modulation in an acidic environment.

  5. Structures of Chlorinated Fullerenes, IPR C96Cl20 and Non-classical C94Cl28 and C92Cl32: Evidence of the Existence of Three New Isomers of C96

    Prof. Dr. Shangfeng Yang, Tao Wei, Song Wang, Dr. Ilya N. Ioffe, Prof. Dr. Erhard Kemnitz and Prof. Dr. Sergey I. Troyanov

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402859

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Single and double C2 losses from C96 fullerenes in the course of chlorination resulted in formation of non-classical C94(NC1)Cl28 and C92(NC2)Cl32 (see picture) with, respectively, one and two heptagons (blue) in the carbon cages. Reconstructive analysis of the skeletal transformations led to identification of the previously missed IPR isomers C96(114) and C96(80). Yet another IPR isomer C96(175)Cl20 was recovered with an intact carbon cage.
