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.

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.

Andrea La Porta, Dr. Marek Grzelczak and Prof. Luis M. Liz-Marzán
Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/open.201402009
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.

Dr. Vijayanand Chandrasekaran, Eugen Johannes, Hauke Kobarg, Prof. Dr. Frank D. Sönnichsen and Prof. Thisbe K. Lindhorst
Article first published online: 18 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/open.201402010
Sweet switches: Azobenzene glycosides with systematically varied structural properties were synthesized using glycoside synthesis and Mills reaction. Their photochromic properties were tested to evaluate their usefulness in studies requiring temporal and spatial alteration of carbohydrate orientation.
