  1. Freeze-Drying-Assisted Synthesis of Hierarchically Porous Carbon/Germanium Hybrid for High-Efficiency Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Dr. Ying Xiao and Prof. Minhua Cao

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402549

    Being part of a hierarchy: A porous C/Ge hybrid with a hierarchical micropore–mesopore structure has been synthesized. When used as an anode material in lithium-ion batteries, the hybrid exhibits a high capacity and excellent rate capability.

  2. Chiral Carbonaceous Nanotubes Containing Twisted Carbonaceous Nanoribbons, Prepared by the Carbonization of Chiral Organic Self-Assemblies

    Hongjing Huo, Prof. Yi Li, Yuan Yuan, Shuwei Lin, Prof. Baozong Li, Prof. Mingliang Wang and Prof. Yonggang Yang

    Article first published online: 28 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402569

    Let′s twist again! Single-handed helical carbonaceous nanotubes containing twisted carbonaceous nanoribbons were prepared by the carbonization of chiral organic self-assemblies within the silica nanotubes (see figure). Circular dichroism spectra indicated that the nanotubes exhibited optical activity. The circular dichroism signals were proposed to originate from the chiral stacking of aromatic rings.

  3. Copper(I)-Catalyzed Regioselective Addition of Nucleophilic Silicon Across Terminal and Internal Carbon–Carbon Triple Bonds

    Dr. Chinmoy K. Hazra, Carolin Fopp and Prof. Dr. Martin Oestreich

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402643

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Dissolving regiochemical issues: A simple catalyst system allows for the regioselective addition of a catalytically generated, silicon-based cuprate across terminal and internal alkynes. The choice of the solvent emerged as crucial for achieving high regiocontrol with the differently substituted triple bonds (see scheme).

  4. Flame Spray Pyrolysis for Finding Multicomponent Nanomaterials with Superior Electrochemical Properties in the CoOx-FeOx System for Use in Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Jung Hyun Kim, Prof. Jong-Heun Lee and Prof. Yun Chan Kang

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402508

    Having a hot temper(ature): High-temperature flame spray pyrolysis is employed for finding highly efficient nanomaterials for use in lithium-ion batteries. Multicomponent CoOx-FeOx powders with Co/Fe mole ratio of 2:1 and a mixed crystal structure with Co3O4 and CoFe2O4 phases show high initial capacities and good cycling performance.

  5. Copper-Promoted Site-Selective Acyloxylation of Unactivated C(sp3)[BOND]H Bonds

    Dr. Xuesong Wu, Yan Zhao and Prof. Dr. Haibo Ge

    Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402510

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Getting promoted: The site-selective acyloxylation of aliphatic amides was achieved via a copper-promoted C(sp3)[BOND]H bond functionalization process directed by a bidentate ligand. The reaction showed a great preference for activating C[BOND]H bonds of β-methyl groups over those of γ-methyl and unactivated methylene groups.
