Locked and released: Block copolymer templated CaCO3 mineralization enables the formation of cytochrome c (Cyt c) mineralized nanoparticles (MNPs) that can stably hold Cyt c at blood pH and release it at endosomal pH (see figure). The Cyt c MNPs undergo effective cellular uptake and help Cyt c escape from endosomal vesicles, thereby efficiently inducing apoptosis of MCF-7 cancer cells.
- Investigation on Luminescence Properties of a Long Afterglow Phosphor Ca2SnO4:Tm3+

How does it glow? Long afterglow phosphors Ca2SnO4:x Tm3+ (x=0.01, 0.02, 003, and 0.04) were prepared by traditional solid-state reactions. The optical properties show that Tm3+-related defects account for the bright bluish green afterglow emission from f–f transitions of Tm3+ ions (see figure). The bluish green long afterglow could be observed for 5 h by the naked eye after the end of UV irradiation.
- Mechanism of Nickel(II)-Catalyzed Oxidative C(sp2)−H/C(sp3)−H Coupling of Benzamides and Toluene Derivatives
Zheng-Yang Xu, Yuan-Ye Jiang, Prof. Dr. Hai-Zhu Yu and Prof. Dr. Yao Fu

Right the wrongs: Density functional theory methods have been used to resolve the mechanistic controversies of the Ni-catalyzed C(sp2)−H/C(sp3)−H coupling of benzamides with toluene derivatives, which was recently successfully achieved with mild oxidant iC3F7I. Two previously proposed mechanisms are ruled out, and a more feasible mechanism is proposed (see scheme).
- Easy Access to Supramolecular Gels of the Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug Diflunisal: Synthesis, Characterization, and Plausible Biomedical Applications
Rumana Parveen and Prof. Dr. Parthasarathi Dastidar
Article first published online: 26 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201500732
Thats what the NSAID: A series of primary ammonium monocarboxylate salts derived from the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug diflunisal form supramolecular gels in methyl salicylate. One such salt is biocompatible and shows anti-inflammatory response as good as that of the parent drug diflunisal, which thereby makes it suitable for topical gel application. NSAID=nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
