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.

- 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

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.
- Site-Selective CH Borylation of Quinolines at the C8 Position Catalyzed by a Silica-Supported Phosphane–Iridium System
Shota Konishi, Dr. Soichiro Kawamorita, Dr. Tomohiro Iwai, Prof. Patrick G. Steel, Prof. Dr. Todd B. Marder and Prof. Dr. Masaya Sawamura
Article first published online: 4 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301423
Mono-P-ly: Site-selective CH borylation of quinoline derivatives at the C8 position was achieved by using a heterogeneous Ir catalyst system based on the silica-supported cage-type monophosphane ligand Silica-SMAP. The efficient synthesis of a corticotropin-releasing factor1 (CRF1) receptor antagonist based on a late-stage CH borylation strategy demonstrates the utility of the C8 borylation reaction.
- Bicyclo[6.3.0]undecapentaenyl Anion: The Next Higher Homolog of the Indenyl Anion with Exceptionally Large Ion-Pairing Effects on its Tropicity
Hiroaki Ozoe, Yasutaka Uno, Prof. Dr. Chitoshi Kitamura, Prof. Dr. Hiroyuki Kurata, Prof. Dr. Masaji Oda, Dr. John W. Jones Jr., Prof. Dr. Lawrence T. Scott and Prof. Dr. Takeshi Kawase
Article first published online: 2 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301307
Split personality: The bicyclo[6.3.0]undecapentaenyl anion, which is the next higher homolog of the indenyl anion, behaves as an aromatic cyclopentadienide ion slightly perturbed by the effects of a paramagnetic cyclooctatetraene in a contact ion pair, whereas in a solvent-separated ion pair it is an overall paratropic species owing to a 12 π-electron periphery (see picture).
