Aβ detection: Recent progress made in the development of techniques for detection of Aβ monomers and oligomers is summarized. With the advancement of nanotechnology, new methods applicable to clinical trials and point-of-care testing for early diagnosis of AD still need to be developed.
- Chitosan-Assisted Crystallization and Film Forming of Perovskite Crystals through Biomineralization

Crystal palace: Perovskite crystals with controlled morphology and properties are formed in a chitosan template by three steps including electrostatic adsorption/chelation, nucleation, and growth. The exposed functional groups of chitosan coordinate strongly with Pb2+ and some of these stabilized Pb2+ ions interact with I−; nucleation occurs and perovskite crystals start to grow in the chitosan network.
- Beyond the Halogen Bond: Examining the Limits of Extended Polybromide Networks through Quantum-Chemical Investigations
Max E. Easton, Dr. Bun Chan, Prof. Anthony F. Masters, Prof. Leo Radom and Prof. Thomas Maschmeyer
Article first published online: 4 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201501316
Bonding experience: Quantum-chemical calculations demonstrate the thermodynamic stability of polybromide monoanions up to [Br37]− and show evidence of bonding within these networks. The results represent a significant step towards resolving the controversy surrounding the bonding nature of these materials.
- Remote C−H Activation of Quinolines through Copper-Catalyzed Radical Cross-Coupling
Dr. Jun Xu, Dr. Chao Shen, Dr. Xiaolei Zhu, Prof. Pengfei Zhang, Dr. Manjaly J. Ajitha, Prof. Kuo-Wei Huang, Dr. Zhongfu An and Prof. Xiaogang Liu
Article first published online: 4 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201501407
A route to remote C−H activation: The sulfonylation of quinolines has been readily achieved through a Cu-catalyzed remote C−S cross coupling reaction without the need for organohalide precursors.
