    Star mix: A simple, rapid strategy for probing kinase activity, based on an aptameric-peptide/graphene-oxide platform, offers high sensitivity and good selectivity. This method allows kinase activity in cell lysate to be assayed within 15 min.

  2. Hydrogenation of Imines Catalyzed by Trisphosphine-Substituted Molybdenum and Tungsten Nitrosyl Hydrides and Co-Catalytic Acid

    Dr. Subrata Chakraborty, Dr. Olivier Blacque, Dr. Thomas Fox and Prof. Heinz Berke

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402280

    It′s important to stay active: Low-valent M(0)(NO)(CO)H(etpip) {M=Mo, 2 a(syn); W=2 b(syn), etpip=(iPr2PCH2CH2)2PPh)} complexes are active catalysts in the presence of [H(Et2O)2][B(C6F5)4] co-catalytic mixture in the hydrogenation of various para-substituted imines to their corresponding amines. An “ionic” mechanism with heterolytic splitting of H2 is proposed followed by “proton before hydride” H-atom transfers.

  3. Meeting the Challenge of Intermolecular Gold(I)-Catalyzed Cycloadditions of Alkynes and Allenes

    Dr. Michael E. Muratore, Anna Homs, Carla Obradors and Prof. Antonio M. Echavarren

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402395

    Golden addition: The development of gold(I)-catalyzed intermolecular carbo- and hetero-cycloadditions of alkynes and allenes has been more challenging than their intramolecular counterparts. Here, with a mechanistic perspective, the most fundamental intermolecular cycloadditions of alkynes and allenes with alkenes are reviewed.

  4. Direct Photocatalysis for Organic Synthesis by Using Plasmonic-Metal Nanoparticles Irradiated with Visible Light

    Qi Xiao, Prof. Dr. Esa Jaatinen and Prof. Dr. Huaiyong Zhu

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402310

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Making changes with visible light: Recent developments in the direct photocatalysis of plasmonic-metal nanoparticles are described, with a focus on the role of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) effect in plasmonic metals and their applications in organic transformations (see figure). The role of light irradiation in the catalyzed reactions and the light-excited energetic electron reaction mechanisms will be highlighted.

  5. Facile In Situ Synthesis of Hierarchical Porous Ni/Ni(OH)2 Hybrid Sponges with Excellent Electrochemical Energy-Storage Performances for Supercapacitors

    Wanren Wang, Wenhua Wang, Dr. Mengjiao Wang and Prof. Dr. Xiaohui Guo

    Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402369

    On the ropes: A unique sponge-like hybrid electrode material was generated by the in situ growth of porous Ni(OH)2 rope-like structures on a Ni support. The as-prepared Ni/Ni(OH)2 hybrid electrode exhibited ultrahigh specific capacitances and good rate-capability in electrochemical capacitors.
