    Detecting chemical warfare agents: A colorimetric molecular probe for the highly selective detection of diisopropylfluorophosphate (DFP), a mimic of sarin and soman nerve gases, in water and in the gas phase is reported. Other nerve agent simulants, anions, oxidant species and other organophosphorous compounds were unable to induce colour changes.

    Effect of the Ortho Alkylation of Perylene Bisimides on the Alignment and Self-Assembly Properties (pages 138–141)

    Dr. Debarshi Dasgupta, Dr. Amol M. Kendhale, Dr. Michael G. Debije, Jeroen ter Schiphorst, Dr. Ivelina. K. Shishmanova, Dr. Giuseppe Portale and Prof. Dr. Albertus P. H. J. Schenning

    Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/open.201402011

    Big effect with small alteration! Styrylation of a perylene bisimide significantly alters the alignment in a liquid crystalline host and the self-assembly in solution. It was found that the dichroic properties of perylene bisimides in a liquid crystal host can be reversed with a single synthetic step by ortho alkylation.

    Triostin A Derived Cyclopeptide as Architectural Template for the Alignment of Four Recognition Units (pages 152–160)

    Ursula M. Kotyrba, Dr. Kevin Pröpper, Dr. Eike-F. Sachs, Anastasiya Myanovska, Tobias Joppe, Friederike Lissy, Prof. Dr. George M. Sheldrick, Prof. Dr. Konrad Koszinowski and Prof. Dr. Ulf Diederichsen

    Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/open.201400001

    Designed to match! Four nucleobases were attached to the disulfide bridged cyclopeptide scaffold derived from the DNA bisintercalator triostin. The aza-TANDEM backbone provides organization and alignment of the nucleobases, allowing for application in sequence- dependent DNA recognition and molecular architecture.

    Gold Nanowire Forests for SERS Detection (pages 146–151)

    Andrea La Porta, Dr. Marek Grzelczak and Prof. Luis M. Liz-Marzán

    Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/open.201402009

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Controlling growth: Gold nanowires constitute excellent and versatile substrates for SERS detection in solution and from the gas phase. Detection of malachite green in water and of 1-naphthalenethiol from the gas phase are demonstrated as proof-of-concept applications of these 3D SERS substrates.
