    The early bird catches the WORM: A donor-acceptor-donor (D-A-A) type conjugated molecule based on linear π-bridging triphenylamine (TPA) donors and naphthalimide (NI)/dicyanovinylene (DCN) acceptors was prepared and shown to possess nonvolatile WORM (write-once-read-many) memory behavior.

  5. Chirality in Ordered Porous Organosilica Hybrid Materials

    Article first published online: 26 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402682

    Small wonders: As the global demand for chiral small molecules continues to grow, the need for chiral heterogeneous systems becomes ever more pronounced. Here we explore chiral surfactant-templated porous materials, with particular emphasis on the creation of chirality in the support, the production of the chiral building blocks, and their use in facilitating asymmetric catalysis and enantioselective separations (see figure).
