  1. Ba2[Pd(HS2O7)2(S3O10)2]: A Heteroleptic Polysulfatopalladate

    Jörn Bruns, Prof. Dr. Thorsten Klüner and Prof. Dr. Mathias S. Wickleder

    Article first published online: 16 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402067

    Two in one: The oxidation of elemental palladium with oleum in the presence of BaCO3 under harsh conditions led to the unprecedented heteroleptic palladate [Pd(HS2O7)2(S3O10)2]4−, which shows a Pd atom coordinated by two different polysulfate species (see figure).

  2. Donor–Acceptor-Type Copolymers Based on a Naphtho[1,2-c:5,6-c]bis(1,2,5-thiadiazole) Scaffold for High-Efficiency Polymer Solar Cells

    Li-Qian Liu, Gui-Chuan Zhang, Peng Liu, Dr. Jie Zhang, Sheng Dong, Dr. Ming Wang, Yu-Guang Ma, Prof. Hin-Lap Yip and Prof. Fei Huang

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402019

    Walking on sunshine: Four donor–acceptor-type low-bandgap conjugated polymers based on a naphtho[1,2-c:5,6-c]bis(1,2,5-thiadiazole) acceptor and different donors with a bithiophene spacer have been synthesized. The best device performance was achieved by PF-C12NT, with Voc=0.87 V, Jsc=12.19 mA cm−2, FF=61.36 %, and PCE=6.51 % (100 mW cm−2, AM 1.5G).

  3. A Base-Free Neutral Phase-Transfer Reaction System

    Dr. Seiji Shirakawa, Dr. Lijia Wang, Dr. Rongjun He, Dr. Satoru Arimitsu and Prof. Dr. Keiji Maruoka

    Article first published online: 15 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402194

    In and out of phase: The mechanism of a novel base-free neutral phase-transfer reaction system was investigated (see scheme). The aqueous–organic biphasic reaction system with lipophilic tetraalkylammonium bromide was essential to promote the neutral phase-transfer reactions. The base-free reaction system could be applied to several asymmetric reactions.

  4. N-Heterocyclic Carbene-Catalyzed Enantioselective Annulation of Indolin-3-ones with Bromoenals

    Qijian Ni, Xiaoxiao Song, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Raabe and Prof. Dr. Dieter Enders

    Article first published online: 11 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402052

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    More NHC-organocatalysis:­ N-Heterocyclic carbene-catalyzed reactions of indolin-3-ones with 2-bromoenals opened an asymmetric access to 3,4-dihydropyrano[3,2-b]indol-2(5 H)-ones in good yields and with good to excellent enantioselectivities. This protocol tolerates a broad substrate scope. In addition, a possible mechanism for the annulation reaction is presented.

  5. SnS2 Nanoplatelet@Graphene Nanocomposites as High-Capacity Anode Materials for Sodium-Ion Batteries

    Xiuqiang Xie, Dr. Dawei Su, Shuangqiang Chen, Jinqiang Zhang, Dr. Shixue Dou and Prof. Dr. Guoxiu Wang

    Article first published online: 11 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201400018

    Just tin time! SnS2 nanoplatelets were incorporated with graphene by using a facile hydrothermal method. Graphene nanosheets act as a heterogeneous dispersing agent to prevent the aggregation of SnS2 nanoplatelets and provide electrically conductive networks, which lead to an improved electrochemical performance for sodium-ion storage (see figure).
