  1. Multifunctional Floating Titania-Coated Macro/Mesoporous Photocatalyst for Efficient Contaminant Removal

    Linlin Zhang, Prof. Zipeng Xing, Hang Zhang, Prof. Zhenzi Li, Xiaodong Zhang, Yan Zhang, Prof. Li Li and Prof. Wei Zhou

    Article first published online: 22 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402327

    Multifunctional catalyst: A multifunctional floating titania-coated macro/mesoporous photocatalyst is fabricated through a low-temperature ultrasonic and deposition route. The well-ordered mesoporous TiO2 is coated on polyurethane foam, which is key for its multifunctional properties. It possesses synergy of contaminant adsorption, dye degradation, and CrVI removal under sunlight (see figure).

  2. β-Ionic Conjugated Chlorin-Type Photosensitizers Based on Porpholactone: Synthesis, Photophysical Properties, and Photodynamic Activity

    Xian-Sheng Ke, Juan Tang, Juan-Juan Chen, Zheng-Yang Zhou and Prof. Dr. Jun-Long Zhang

    Article first published online: 22 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402356

    It's terminal: Six tetrapentafluorophenylporpholactol zinc(II) complexes with β-hydrophilic chains terminated by glucosyl (neutral, ZnL1), sulfonic (anionic, ZnL2), zwitterionic (ZnL3), and quaternary ammonium groups (cationic, ZnL4–6) were synthesized and characterized (see figure). The relationship of β-ionic conjugates, cellular uptake, and intracellular photodynamic therapy activity was demonstrated and the mechanism of photoinduced cell death was studied.

  3. Subtle Differences in Initial Membrane Interactions Underpin the Selectivity of Small Antimicrobial Peptides

    Dr. Slavica Praporski, Dr. Adam Mechler, Prof. Frances Separovic and Prof. Lisandra L. Martin

    Article first published online: 22 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402318

    Insane for the membrane: The membrane specificity of action of citropin 1.1, a 16-residue antimicrobial peptide, was studied by quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) measurements (see figure). The initial membrane interaction might determine whether the peptide transforms into the membrane-disrupting α-helical conformation. Subtle differences in the viscoelasticity measured by QCM signify the mechanistic pathway towards membrane disruption.

  4. Organoruthenium and Osmium Anticancer Complexes Bearing a Maleimide Functional Group: Reactivity to Cysteine, Stability, and Cytotoxicity

    Sally Moon, Dr. Muhammad Hanif, Mario Kubanik, Hannah Holtkamp, Dr. Tilo Söhnel, Dr. Stephen M. F. Jamieson and Prof. Christian G. Hartinger

    Article first published online: 21 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402390

    Right on target: Functionalization of anticancer-active metal complexes with a maleimide moiety is aimed to facilitate the selective reaction with human serum albumin to exploit passive targeting of tumors through the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect (see figure).

  5. Synthesis and Characterization of a Biotinylated Multivalent Targeted Contrast Agent

    Dr. Serhat Gündüz, Dr. Anthony Power, Prof. Dr. Martin E. Maier, Prof. Dr. Nikos K. Logothetis and Priv.-Doz. Dr. Goran Angelovski

    Article first published online: 12 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402329

    Target and amplify: A nanosized target-specific bimodal and multivalent contrast agent (CA) has been prepared and characterized. This dendrimeric CA bears the ligand biotin and allows dual modal readout by means of magnetic resonance and optical imaging techniques. The demonstrated specific binding to avidin-coated agarose gels and microspheres (see figure) opens new perspectives for high-affinity and high-resolution MRI of various cellular targets.
