  1. Melamine as an Effective Supramolecular Modifier and Stabilizer in a Nanotube-Constituted Supergel

    Pengyao Xing, Xiaoxiao Chu, Mingfang Ma, Shangyang Li and Aiyou Hao

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402645

    Supramolecular modifier and stabilizer: Self-assembly of N-fluorenyl-9-methoxycarbonyl glutamic acid (Fmoc-Glu) in water generates metastable single-wall nanotubes, which entangle and bundle together to form unstable gels that shrink with time and finally result in lamellar crystalline precipitates. Adding melamine as modifier and stabilizer stabilized the self-assembled nanotubes and gave a supergel (see picture).

  2. Tailored Synthesis of Various Nanomaterials by Using a Graphene-Oxide-Based Gel as a Nanoreactor and Nanohybrid-Catalyzed C[BOND]C Bond Formation

    Abhijit Biswas and Prof. Dr. Arindam Banerjee

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402695

    Do not pass GO: A GO–vitamin-based hydrogel acted as a nanoreactor for the synthesis of various nanoparticles (Au, Ag, and Pd) inside the GO and RGO gel matrices. A hybrid RGO–vitaminB2 gel with Pd nanoparticles was a potential catalyst for Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions. A simple and efficient technique was employed to isolate the catalyst, which endowed it with very high recyclability.

  3. Origins of the Enantio- and N/O Selectivity in the Primary-Amine-Catalyzed Hydroxyamination of 1,3-Dicarbonyl Compounds with In-Situ-Formed Nitrosocarbonyl Compounds: A Theoretical Study

    Dr. Long Zhang, Changming Xu, Prof. Dr. Xueling Mi and Prof. Dr. Sanzhong Luo

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402720

    Origins of species: A bidentate hydrogen-bonding interaction between the tertiary N+[BOND]H and nitrosocarbonyl groups account for the high N selectivity, whilst the enantioselectivity is determined by facial-selective attack on the (E)- and (Z)-enamines.

  4. Electrospun Cu/Sn/C Nanocomposite Fiber Anodes with Superior Usable Lifetime for Lithium- and Sodium-Ion Batteries

    Jae-Chan Kim and Prof. Dong-Wan Kim

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402849

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Competent composites: Cu/Sn/C composite nanofiber anodes were fabricated in a dual-nozzle electrospinning process. Electrodes exhibit high reversible capacities of 490 and 220 mA h g−1 over 600 cycles (for Li-ion batteries) and 200 cycles (for Na-ion batteries), respectively. Due to benefits of the Cu/C matrix and fibrous nanostructure, Cu/Sn/C fiber electrodes improve electric conductivity and cycle stability (see figure).

  5. Influence of the Auxiliary Acceptor on the Absorption Response and Photovoltaic Performance of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    ZhiFang Wu, Dr. Xin Li, Dr. Jing Li, Prof. Dr. JianLi Hua, Prof. Dr. Hans Ågren and Prof. Dr. He Tian

    Article first published online: 15 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402608

    Bring me sunshine: New sensitizers with indoline as donor and a 2,1,3-benzothiadiazole (BTD)/[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine (PT) moiety as the auxiliary acceptor were synthesized. By fine-tuning the auxiliary acceptor, we obtained a photoelectric conversion efficiency of 8.53 % for a 2-(1,1-dicyanomethylene)rhodanine-based dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC; see figure). The results indicate that the incorporation of BTD can improve the DSSC performance.
