Abstracts for Communications
From January 2014 onwards, all Communications in Chemistry—An Asian Journal will contain an abstract as their first paragraph. We therefore request that every new Communication be submitted with such an abstract. When you write the abstract, please keep the following aspects in mind (they can be found in more detail in the Author Guidelines, Section 2.3.): In the abstract, the motivation for the work, the methods applied, the results, and the conclusions drawn should be presented (maximum 1000 characters). The abstract should contain several keywords to aid finding the paper online, and it should not mention graphical elements, tables, or references within the paper.

- Effective Cancer Cell Killing by Hydrophobic Nanovoid-Enhanced Cavitation under Safe Low-Energy Ultrasound
Dr. Yang Zhao, Dr. Yingchun Zhu, Dr. Jingke Fu and Dr. Lianzhou Wang
Article first published online: 11 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301333
Seeds of success: After accumulation in tumors and endocytosis to lysosomes, mesoporous silica nanoparticles with internal hydrophobic mesopores can act as bubble nucleation seeds responding to low-intensity ultrasound. This drastically amplifies the ultrasonic cavitation effect, a process that can disrupt the lysosomal membrane and release lysosomal proteases, thus leading to cell necrosis.
- Switchable Substrates for Analyzing and Engineering Cellular Functions
Dr. Jun Nakanishi
Article first published online: 11 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301325
Smart niche: Cellular activity is highly regulated by chemical and physical cues applied by extracellular matrices and surrounding cells. This review focuses on engineered switchable substrates that are designed to control such cellular microenvironments in response to an external stimulus, such as heat, voltage, and light.
- A Pyrene Derivative for Hg2+-Selective Fluorescent Sensing and Its Application in In Vivo Imaging
Guang Ke Wang, Qi Li Mi, Li Yun Zhao, Jun Jie Hu, Lin E Guo, Xiao Ju Zou, Bo Liu, Xiao Guang Xie, Prof. Jun Feng Zhang, Prof. Qi Hua Zhao and Prof. Ying Zhou
Article first published online: 9 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301123
A bright sandwich: An Hg2+-selective fluorescent sensor (1) bearing pyrene as a fluorophore was synthesized. A sandwich-stacking binding mode was formed during the binding process, which increased the excimer fluorescence 22-fold at 490 nm (see figure). Compound 1 was successfully applied in in vivo imaging to trace the enrichment and distribution of mercury in Caenorhabditis elegans.
- Stable Encapsulation of Acrylate Esters in Networked Molecular Capsules
Guo-Hong Ning, Dr. Yasuhide Inokuma and Prof. Makoto Fujita
Article first published online: 5 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301298
Guests are welcome: Reactive acrylate esters were encapsulated in the cavity of networked molecular capsules in a single-crystal-to-single-crystal fashion. Owing to the encapsulation effect, acrylates inside the capsules do not undergo polymerization upon irradiation with UV light or heating, while the guest molecules can be quantitatively extracted by treatment with toluene.
- Bioinspired, Cysteamine-Catalyzed Co-Silicification of (1 H, 1 H, 2 H, 2 H-Perfluorooctyl)triethoxysilane and Tetraethyl Orthosilicate: Formation of Superhydrophobic Surfaces
Ji Hun Park, Ji Yup Kim, Prof. Dr. Woo Kyung Cho and Prof. Dr. Insung S. Choi
Article first published online: 4 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301213
Not a can of worms: The co-silicification of tetraethyl orthosilicate and (1 H, 1 H, 2 H, 2H-perfluorooctyl)triethoxysilane generated worm-like or particulate fluorinated silica structures, depending on the water-to-ethanol ratio and the ratio of the two silica precursors. The substrate coated with the fluorinated silica displayed superhydrophobicity, and its surface free energy was much lower than that of Teflon.
