2014 Herbert C. Brown Award for Creative Research in Synthetic Methods
Paul Knochel (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München, Germany) has been honored as recipient of the Herbert C. Brown Award for Creative Research in Synthetic Methods. This prestigious award is given "to recognize and encourage outstanding and creative contributions to research in synthetic methods". A special symposium to honor Knochel will take place at the upcoming 247th ACS National Meeting in Dallas. He is best known for development of novel organometallic reagents and methods for use in organic synthesis, asymmetric catalysis, and natural product synthesis and he is on the Editorial Board of ChemPlusChem.
If you plan on attending the 247th ACS National Meeting then please feel free to contact the editorial office and make an appointment to meet Deputy Editor, Marisa Spiniello, who would be pleased to discuss any matters concerning the journal.

Morph into shape: A facile template-free method is employed to prepare AgCl hierarchical architectures that are the precursors of highly efficient photocatalysts Ag@AgCl. The morphology of the product is altered upon changes to the solvent used in the preparation procedure (see picture).

Transition period: Yb3+/Tm3+-codoped NaYF4 nanocrystals with different phases (cubic α and hexagonal β) and morphologies (nanoparticles, nanorods, nanoplates) can be controllably fabricated by a convenient hydrothermal synthesis technique. Anisotropic polarization emission is obtained in individual NaYF4:Yb,Tm nanorods, which have potential applications as polarized light resources, bio-labels, photodetectors, lasers, and so forth (see picture).
- Dispersion Characteristics and Aggregation in Titanate Nanowire Colloids
Dr. Endre Horváth, Lucie Grebikova, Dr. Plinio Maroni, Dr. Tamás Szabó, Dr. Arnaud Magrez, Prof. László Forró and Dr. Istvan Szilagyi

Dispersion stabilization: Charging and aggregation in aqueous dispersions of positive titanate nanowires can be tuned through the addition of the oppositely charged poly(styrene sulfonate) polyelectrolyte thanks to its strong affinity for the titanate surface. Accordingly, the system is stable at low polyelectrolyte doses, unstable with rapid aggregation of the nanowires near the charge neutralization point, and stable again at high polyelectrolyte coverages, as shown in the picture.

Good vibrations: Chirality transfer in magnetic 1D iron(III) Schiff base complexes has been recorded by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy. Vibrational CD characterization of coordination polymers in solution has been demonstrated for monitoring the polymerization process (see figure).
- Isomerism of Cycloserine and Its Protonated Form
Dr. Caterina Fraschetti, Prof. Antonello Filippi, Dr. Stefano Borocci, Dr. Vincent Steinmetz and Prof. Maurizio Speranza
Article first published online: 24 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201400006
Pucker up: The gas-phase isomerism of cycloserine and its protonated forms was investigated computationally and experimentally by IR multiphoton dissociation spectroscopy. The isomers of cycloserine show pronounced ring puckering, which generates rich conformeric landscapes (see figure). The relative stability of the various isomers responds to a balance between attractive and repulsive interactions among the functional groups of the molecule.
