  1. In Situ Assembly of Au Nanoclusters within Protein Hydrogel Networks

    Liqiang Wang, Xingxing Jiang, Prof. Min Zhang, Prof. Minghui Yang and Prof. You-Nian Liu

    Gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) in situ embedded in nanocomposite hydrogels can be facilely obtained via exploiting the triple roles of protein as a gelator, a reducing agent as well as a template. The obtained nanocomposite hydrogels have injectable and moldable features and can be engineered into semi-transparent films or N-doped C/AuNPs composites.

  2. Sequential Dy(OTf)3-Catalyzed Solvent-Free Per-O-Acetylation and Regioselective Anomeric De-O-Acetylation of Carbohydrates

    Yi-Ling Yan, Jiun-Rung Guo and Prof. Chien-Fu Liang

    Version of Record online: 23 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201700867

    It′s to Dy for! Dy(OTf)3-catalyzed per-O-acetylation and regioselective anomeric deacetylation have been developed. Moreover, free sugars can be converted into the peracetylated glycosyl hemiacetals by a sequential one-pot, two-step strategy. In a further extension, the obtained hemiacetals were successfully sequentially transformed into glycosyl imidates following Dy(OTf)3-catalyzed glycosylation.

  3. Synthesis of 5-Acyl-2-Amino-3-Cyanothiophenes: Chemistry and Fluorescent Properties

    Kseniya I. Lugovik, Alexander K. Eltyshev, Dr. Enrico Benassi and Prof. Nataliya P. Belskaya

    Twist and shout: The synthesis of polyfunctional thiophenes is reported. Quantum-mechanical calculations explain the synthetic pathway of this heterocyclization. Both experimental and computational spectral results demonstrate that the optical properties of the synthesized thiophenes are caused by the presence of an intramolecular charge-transfer (ICT) state during absorption and a twisted ICT state after geometry relaxation in the excited state.
