ChemPlusChem 4/2017: Biofest Special Issue

This special issue organized by guest editors Silviu Balaban, Luisa DeCola, and Wolfgang Schuhmann focuses on bioinspired chemistry, biomaterials, and bioelectrochemistry. Particular highlights include: a VIP communication by Olaf Rüdiger on a hydrogenase for solar water splitting and HIP papers by Renate Bilewicz on lipidic nanoparticles used for drug delivery and by Sylvie Begin-Colin on iron oxide nanoparticles in imaging. Minireviews by Jean Weiss on porphyrins as hemoprotein models and molecular wires, Segey Schleev on the development of implanted fuel cells, and Ross Milton and Shelley Minteer on bioelectrosynthesis for ammonia production provide a broader context.

This issue is free to view in April and May!

    Making gains: New benzothiadiazole-based small-molecule organic semiconductors were synthesized and used as active layers in organic thin-film transistors with the highest hole mobility of 0.1 cm2 V−1 s−1. Bulk heterojunction ambipolar transistors were fabricated by blending the developed p-channel material with N,N′-1H,1H-perfluorobutyl dicyanoperylenediimide. Complementary-like inverters fabricated from the ambipolar transistors exhibited voltage gains as high as 84.

    Bioelimination of MRI contrast agents: The effect of the number of anchoring agents and of the grafting process on the anchoring strength and colloidal, magnetic properties, cell internalization, bioelimination, and in vitro and in vivo magnetic resonance imaging properties of dendronized iron oxide nanoparticles are examined (see picture).

    Glucose-Modified Silicon Nanoparticles for Cellular Imaging (pages 660–667)

    Dr. Chien-Wei Hsu, Dr. Dedy Septiadi, Chian-Hui Lai, Pengkun Chen, Prof. Peter H. Seeberger and Prof. Luisa De Cola

    Version of Record online: 20 APR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201700054

    A sweet approach: Glucose-modified silicon nanoparticles, for which the number of sugar moieties per particle was determined, were investigated as in vitro imaging probes. A range of spectroscopic and photophysical methods was used to characterize glucose-modified and unmodified nanoparticles. Studies in HeLa cells showed that surface glucose assisted internalization and influenced the intracellular localization of these nanoparticles.

    Biomolecule interactions: The chemical, thermodynamic, and structural characterization of manganese(II) phytate species is presented, in a study of the interaction of this molecule with cations. The polynuclear complexes [Mn5(H2L)] and (H2terpy)2[Mn(H6L)(terpy)(H2O)] (terpy=terpyridine) were prepared and characterized by different techniques (see figure).
