- Synthesis of High-Surface-Area Nitrogen-Doped Porous Carbon Microflowers and Their Efficient Carbon Dioxide Capture Performance
Dr. Yao Li and Prof. Minhua Cao
Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500185
Flowers soak up CO2: High-surface-area porous N-doped carbon microflowers were assembled from porous nanosheets by a three-step route: soft-template-assisted self-assembly, thermal decomposition, and KOH activation. The hierarchically porous sample A-NCF-4 exhibits remarkably high CO2 adsorption capacities at 0 °C, under 1 and 20 bar.
- Control of Microbial Growth in Alginate/Polydopamine Core/Shell Microbeads
Beom Jin Kim, Taegyun Park, So-Young Park, Prof. Sang Woo Han, Prof. Hee-Seung Lee, Prof. Yang-Gyun Kim and Prof. Insung S. Choi
Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500360
Trapped alive: The growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast cells was tightly controlled by forming the polydopamine (PD) shell onto the alginate microbeads that encapsulated the yeast cells, and this controlled growth of microbes prevented unwanted cell release from the microbeads while maintaining cell viability.
- Study of the Function of G-Rich Aptamers Selected for Lung Adenocarcinoma
Jun Hu, Dr. Zilong Zhao, Prof. Qiaoling Liu, Prof. Mao Ye, Bingqiang Hu, Jing Wang and Prof. Weihong Tan
Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500187
Pick and choose: The secondary structure, binding ability, internalization, and antiproliferation activity of two truncated G-rich aptamers, S13 and S50, were investigated in cancer and noncancer cells, and compared with those of nucleolin-binding AS1411 and thrombin-binding aptamer. Tumor-selective antiproliferation of G-rich oligonucleotides may not directly depend on the binding of the G-rich aptamers to cells (see figure).
- Unlocking Inter- to Non-Penetrating Frameworks Using Steric Influences on Spacers for CO2 Adsorption
Dr. Sheng-Li Huang, Prof. Wen-Hua Zhang, Prof. Yun Ling, Prof. Seik Weng Ng, Dr. He-Kuan Luo and Prof. T. S. Andy Hor
Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500231
Transformers—age of networks: Skeletal derivatization of an organic linker results in a transformation of an inter-penetrating framework to a series of isostructural CuII non-penetrative porous networks that show significant CO2 adsorption capabilities with different degrees of sorption and selectivity sensitive to the aryl substituent.
- A Short Helix Formed by Cyclic β2,3-Aminoxy Peptides in Protic Solvents
Dr. Yu Hao, Ke An, Prof. Dr. Dan-Wei Zhang and Prof. Dr. Dan Yang
Article first published online: 29 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500338
Lock, stock, and two smoking residues: Rigid cyclic residues ‘lock’ the local conformation of aminoxy oligopeptides to give helical structures. Water-soluble aminoxy peptides exhibit prominent conformational stability towards various pH values and temperatures.
