  1. Tailoring Hierarchical Zeolites with Designed Cationic Surfactants and Their High Catalytic Performance

    Kai Zhang, Dr. Chao Li, Zewei Liu, Min Wang, Xin Yan and Prof. Dr. Hongxia Xi

    Version of Record online: 22 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201700942

    Follow the hierarchy: Quaternary ammonium surfactants act as organic structure-directing agents (OSDAs; see figure) in the formation of hierarchical zeolite samples. These hierarchical zeolites showed improved catalytic activity and provide a new pathway to the synthesis of hierarchical porous materials by a soft-templating method.

  3. Metallofullerenol Inhibits Cellular Iron Uptake by Inducing Transferrin Tetramerization

    Dr. Jinxia Li, Dr. Xueqing Xing, Prof. Baoyun Sun, Prof. Yuliang Zhao and Prof. Zhonghua Wu

    Transport interruptions: When Fe3+ tightly binds to transferrin (Tf), the Tf (with loading two Fe3+) complex is recognized by the Tf-receptor on the cell membrane and initiates the process of iron transport. However, in the present of Gd@C82(OH)22 nanoparticles, Tf molecules aggregate into tetramers and the iron-transport function of Tf is impaired. Consequently, the iron uptake and the subsequent proliferation of tumor cells are inhibited by Gd@C82(OH)22.

  4. Capped Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles for the Selective and Sensitive Detection of Cyanide

    Dr. Sameh El Sayed, Prof. Maurizio Licchelli, Prof. Ramón Martínez-Máñez and Dr. Félix Sancenón

    Version of Record online: 22 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201701130

    Sense and Sensitivity: Mesoporous silica nanoparticles loaded with [Ru(bipy)3]2+, functionalized with NiII macrocyclic complex subunits, and capped with a bulky anion (hexametaphosphate) were used to selectively and sensitively detect cyanide in water.

  5. Different Steric-Twist-Induced Ternary Memory Characteristics in Nonconjugated Copolymers with Pendant Naphthalene and 1,8-Naphthalimide Moieties

    Ming Wang, Zhuang Li, Prof. Hua Li, Prof. Jinghui He, Prof. Najun Li, Prof. Qingfeng Xu and Prof. Jianmei Lu

    There′s the twist! By adjustment of the connection sites of 1,8-naphthalimide moieties to tune the steric-twist effect, two novel random copolymers, PMNN and PMNB (see figure), were obtained and exhibit different ternary memory performance through conformational change and charge-trapping mechanisms.
