- Fabrication and Formation Mechanism of Ag Nanoplate-Decorated Nanofiber Mats and Their Application in SERS
Peng Jia, Jiao Chang, Jianqiang Wang, Pan Zhang, Bing Cao, Yuting Geng, Xiuxing Wang and Prof. Kai Pan
Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500777
Step up to the nanoplate: Ag nanoplate-decorated PmPD/PAN nanofiber mats have been obtained as a highly active 3D SERS substrate by grafting PmPD on PAN nanofiber and subsequent assembly of Ag nanoparticles and growth of Ag nanoparticles into Ag nanoplates. The obtained Ag nanoplates@Pm PD/PAN nanofiber mats exhibit high-performance SERS activity and excellent signal uniformity, thus showing potential for the trace detection of chemical molecules.
- Total Synthesis of (±)-Englerin A Using An Intermolecular [3+2] Cycloaddition Reaction of Platinum-Containing Carbonyl Ylide
Prof. Dr. Hiroyuki Kusama, Aoi Tazawa, Dr. Kento Ishida and Prof. Dr. Nobuharu Iwasawa
Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500935
Just a few steps away: A total synthesis of (±)-Englerin A has been achieved starting from pent-3-ynyl isopropyl ketone in 14 steps. The key feature of this synthesis is the highly efficient and stereoselective preparation of the 8-oxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane derivative, a core skeleton of Englerin A, based on an inverse electron-demand [3+2] cycloaddition reaction of the platinum-containing carbonyl ylide.
- A Remarkably Efficient MnFe2O4-based Oxidase Nanozyme
Dr. Amit A. Vernekar, Tandrila Das, Sourav Ghosh and Prof. Dr. Govindasamy Mugesh
Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500942
Up so high: The magnetic nanozyme MnFe2O4 exhibits a remarkable oxidase-like activity. The enzyme-mimetic activity is morphology-dependent, with nanooctahedra exhibiting a catalytic efficiency of 2.21×109 m−1 s−1, the highest activity ever reported for a nanozyme.
- Fluorogenic Thorium Sensors Based on 2,6-Pyridinedicarboxylic Acid-Substituted Tetraphenylethenes with Aggregation-Induced Emission Characteristics
Dr. Jun Wen, Dr. Liang Dong, Prof. Sheng Hu, Dr. Weiyi Li, Dr. Shuo Li and Prof. Xiaolin Wang
Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500834
An AIE for ions: A novel tetraphenylethene derivative modified with 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid is presented as a turn-on fluorescent sensor for selective, ppb level detection of thorium in aqueous media by aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristics. This is the first application of a AIE fluorescence sensor in actinide metal recognition and it has potential applications in environmental systems for thorium ion detection.
- A Simple Method for the Preparation of TiO2/Ag-AgCl@Polypyrrole Composite and Its Enhanced Visible-Light Photocatalytic Activity
Dr. Tongjie Yao, Lei Shi, Hao Wang, Fangxiao Wang, Dr. Jie Wu, Dr. Xiao Zhang, Prof. Jianmin Sun and Dr. Tieyu Cui
Article first published online: 8 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201501012
Driven: A simple strategy to prepare a visible-light driven TiO2/Ag-AgCl@polypyrrole (PPy) photocatalyst with Ag-AgCl nanoparticles supported on TiO2 nanofibers and covered by a thin PPy shell is described. The visible-light photocatalytic activity, reusability, and the possible mechanism were studied in detail.
