  1. Self-Assembled Platinum Nanoflowers on Polydopamine-Coated Reduced Graphene Oxide for Methanol Oxidation and Oxygen Reduction Reactions

    Xueqing Yu, Huan Wang, Prof. Liping Guo and Prof. Liang Wang

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402883

    Platinum in bloom! Self-assembled Pt nanoflowers on polydopamine-coated reduced graphene oxide are fabricated in a facile and efficient synthesis, and are a promising electrocatalyst for methanol oxidation and oxygen reduction reactions.

  2. o-Fluorination of Aromatic Azides Yields Improved Azido-Based Fluorescent Probes for Hydrogen Sulfide: Synthesis, Spectra, and Bioimaging

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402808

    Just add fluorine! On the basis of introducing fluoro substituents into the ortho position of aromatic azides, which more than doubles their rate of reaction with H2S, new BODIPY-based fluorescent probes were developed for real-time bioimaging of H2S. These probes can be used for in situ visualization of D-cysteine-dependent endogenously produced H2S in living cells (see figure).

  3. Efficient Intramolecular Energy Transfer between Two Fluorophores in a Bis-Branched [3]Rotaxane

    Jian Yao, Hong Li, Ya-Nan Xu, Prof. Dr. Qiao-Chun Wang and Prof. Dr. Da-Hui Qu

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402789

    Do FRET! A bis-branched [3]rotaxane was designed and constructed. The [3]rotaxane showed a highly efficient fluorescence resonance energy-transfer (FRET; see scheme) process from the oligo(para-phenylenevinylene) (OPV) fluorophore in the thread component to the difluoroboradiaza-s-indacene (BODIPY) fluorophore in the macrocycle component.

  4. A Multifunctional 3D Chiral Porous Ferroelectric Metal–Organic Framework for Sensing Small Organic Molecules and Dye Uptake

    Li-Hui Cao, Dr. Yong-Li Wei, Can Ji, Ming-Li Ma, Prof. Shuang-Quan Zang and Prof. Thomas C. W. Mak

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402785

    Be as flexible as you can: The flexible aromatic multicarboxylate ligand and CdII ions assemble into a chiral multihelical porous metal–organic framework with second-order nonlinear optical and ferroelectric properties. The obtained guest-free form senses small organic molecules with high selectivity and sensitivity, and adsorbs large dye molecules.

  5. Modification of Nucleic Acids by Azobenzene Derivatives and Their Applications in Biotechnology and Nanotechnology

    Dr. Jing Li, Dr. Xingyu Wang and Prof. Xingguo Liang

    Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402758

    Only light can do that: By using trans-cis photoisomerization, DNA duplex formation and dissociation could be photoregulated simply by light irradiation. Based on this basic idea, further improvements of azobenzene-modified nucleic acids and their applications were developed. By combining functional groups with biomolecules, novel nanomaterials can be developed and may contribute greatly to DNA nanotechnology.
