  1. Synthesis of Di- and Trixanthones that Display High Stability and a Visual Fluorescence Response to Strong Acid

    Dr. Baolin Wang, Jiafeng Shao, Dr. Taoshan Xu, Lichuan Chen, Jinlian Zhao, Yongliang Shao, Prof. Dr. Hao-Li Zhang and Prof. Dr. Xiangfeng Shao

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402815

    Tri and tri again: Dixanthones and an unprecedented C3h-symmetric trixanthone have been synthesized in three steps. These compounds possess a planar π-conjugated system and formed tight columnar stacks. Their fluorescence emission displays distinct modulation in an acidic environment.

  2. Structures of Chlorinated Fullerenes, IPR C96Cl20 and Non-classical C94Cl28 and C92Cl32: Evidence of the Existence of Three New Isomers of C96

    Prof. Dr. Shangfeng Yang, Tao Wei, Song Wang, Dr. Ilya N. Ioffe, Prof. Dr. Erhard Kemnitz and Prof. Dr. Sergey I. Troyanov

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402859

    Single and double C2 losses from C96 fullerenes in the course of chlorination resulted in formation of non-classical C94(NC1)Cl28 and C92(NC2)Cl32 (see picture) with, respectively, one and two heptagons (blue) in the carbon cages. Reconstructive analysis of the skeletal transformations led to identification of the previously missed IPR isomers C96(114) and C96(80). Yet another IPR isomer C96(175)Cl20 was recovered with an intact carbon cage.

  3. Dibenzo[a,f]perylene Bisimide: Effects of Introducing Two Fused Rings

    Impacts of tetracene: The effects of introducing a ring-fused structure into the perylene bisimides (PBIs) are reported. Dibenzo[a,f]-fused PBIs were synthesized and the twisted structure was characterized by X-ray analysis. The [a,f]-fused structure showed an increased HOMO energy level owing to the electron-rich tetracene with an absorption band at 735 nm and a shoulder reaching 900 nm.

  4. Oligopeptide-Assisted Self-Assembly of Oligothiophenes: Co-Assembly and Chirality Transfer

    Dr. Zongxia Guo, Dr. Ruiying Gong, Youbing Mu, Dr. Xiao Wang and Prof. Dr. Xiaobo Wan

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402646

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Chirality transfer: The self-assembly of two achiral oligothiophenes assisted by an oligopeptide was investigated. The oligothiophene without carboxylic acid groups can co-assemble with peptide into chiral nanostructures. Although the oligothiophene with carboxylic acid groups can also form a gel with peptide, it preferred to self-assemble independently. The chirality of peptide can also be transferred to thiophene assemblies in xerogel (see figure).

  5. Core–Shell α-Fe2O3@α-MoO3 Nanorods as Lithium-Ion Battery Anodes with Extremely High Capacity and Cyclability

    Qiang Wang, Qi Wang, De-An Zhang, Dr. Jing Sun, Dr. Li-Li Xing and Prof. Xin-Yu Xue

    Article first published online: 28 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402809

    The core of the matter: α-Fe2O3@α-MoO3 core–shell nanorods exhibit extremely high lithium-storage performance. Such a good performance can be attributed to the synergistic effect between α-Fe2O3 and α-MoO3, a small size effect, one-dimensional nanostructures, short paths for lithium diffusion, and interface spaces.
