  1. Gold Nanorod–Photosensitizer Complex Obtained by Layer-by-Layer Method for Photodynamic/Photothermal Therapy In Vitro

    Seung Beom Kim, Tae Heon Lee, Prof. Il Yoon, Prof. Young Key Shim and Prof. Woo Kyoung Lee

    Article first published online: 28 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403193

    Double up: A gold nanorod (GNR)–photosensitizer (PS) complex, which was prepared by using the LbL method, exhibits high anticancer activity in vitro using a synergistic therapy of photothermal therapy (PTT) followed by photodynamic therapy (PDT). In this system, PTT controls the PS release to maximize 1O2 photogeneration for PDT.

  2. Ruthenium and Osmium Complexes That Bear Functional Azolate Chelates for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    Prof. Dr. Yun Chi, Dr. Kuan-Lin Wu and Prof. Dr. Tzu-Chien Wei

    Article first published online: 28 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403261

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Swell cells: The majority of RuII metal-based dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) contain at least one thiocyanate ligand. In this review, we report on the preparation of a new family of RuII and OsII sensitizers with various azolate-containing chelates as the replacement (see figure). Their molecular designs, structural relationship, and performance characteristics are reviewed in light of the future development of organic materials.

  3. Coordination of alkaline-earth metal ions in the inverted cucurbit[7]uril supramolecular assemblies formed in the presence of [ZnCl4]2− and [CdCl4]2−

    Pass the salt, please: An interesting cascade process leading to azonia-pyrene salts has been discovered. The fluorescence quantum yields of products are 40–60 %, Stokes shifts are about 2000–4000 cm−1, and the lactam displays tautomerization in the ground state.

  5. An Unexpected Double Diels–Alder Reaction of (E)-2-Bromo-4-aryl-1,3-pentadiene Involving [1,5]-Hydrogen Migration and HBr Elimination: Synthesis of Bicyclo[2.2.2]octene Derivatives

    Pingping Huang, Dr. Lingyan Liu, Weixing Chang and Prof. Jing Li

    Article first published online: 23 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201403092

    React and repeat: An unexpected one-pot double Diels–Alder reaction of (E)-2-bromo-4-aryl-1,3-pentadiene was developed and resulted in a series of bicyclo[2.2.2]octene derivatives without the need for a metal catalyst (see scheme). The proposed mechanism involves a [1,5]-sigmatropic hydrogen migration and HBr elimination.
