  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. Preparation, Formation Mechanism, and Photoresponse Properties of GeSe Microtubes with a Rectangular Cross Section

    Prof. Liang Shi, Yanan Li and Yumei Dai

    Article first published online: 11 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402333

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Controlled growth: A solution approach for the fabrication of GeSe single-crystalline microtubes with rectangular cross sections has been developed, and the GeSe microtubes have a growth axis in the [010] direction and diameters in the range of 1–2 μm (see figure). Clear photoresponsive behavior is recorded for the as-synthesized GeSe microtubes.

  4. Carbazolo[2,1-a]carbazole Diimide: A Building Block for Organic Electronic Materials

    Dr. Zheng Zhao, Zhongli Wang, Xu Zhang, Simin Gao, Dr. Xiaodi Yang, Dr. Zhiming Duan and Prof. Dr. Xike Gao

    Article first published online: 4 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402360

    Designer molecules: A new class of carbazolo[2,1-a]carbazole diimides (1) has been designed (see figure). The synthesis, X-ray crystal structure, absorption spectra, and electrochemical properties of 1 as well as the charge transport properties and density functional calculations were investigated.

  5. A Nanostructured PLGA System for Cell Delivery of a Tetrathiahelicene as a Model for Helical DNA Intercalators

    Dr. Silvia Cauteruccio, Dr. Cristina Bartoli, Dr. Claudio Carrara, Davide Dova, Dr. Cesare Errico, Dr. Giulia Ciampi, Dr. Dinuccio Dinucci, Prof. Emanuela Licandro and Dr. Federica Chiellini

    Article first published online: 4 DEC 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402347

    Deliver the goods: A preliminary study of the cellular uptake of a nanoconstruct obtained by loading poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles with a tetrathiahelicene conjugated to a fluorescent rhodamine probe has been carried out. The ability to internalize the tetrathiahelicene and deliver it intracellularly has been investigated by means of cytotoxicity and cell uptake tests on Balb/3T3 clone A31 fibroblasts (see figure).
