ChemPlusChem 1/2015: Wide-Ranging Applications

ChemPlusChem 1/2015: Wide-Ranging Applications

ChemPlusChem starts 2015 in fine style with the cover article on diaryl diselenide radical anions by Tetsuro Majima (see the cover profile for more on the collaboration behind this work). The back cover was provided by Anthony O'Mullane and accompanies his report on carbon cloth electrodes coated with conducting polymers. In a Minireview Nikola Knezevic described the current developments in nanotherapeutics based on mesoporous silica nanoparticles. Other highlights in this issue include a report on dense-shell polyphenylene dendrimers by Klaus Müllen and Siegfried Waldvogel, a mechanical model of globular transitions in polymers by Simon Tricard and George Whitesides, and an article on energetic materials derived from tetrazole by Thomas Klapötke. Finally in an interview Jun-Long Zhang describes his research, best summarized as bioinorganic/organometallic chemistry focusing on non-native coordination chemistry in living cells.

    Nanowire act: This report demonstrates a novel Pd[BOND]Au nanowire sensor for hydrogen based on an optimized balance of the gold-induced lattice expansion of palladium and hydrogen adsorption-induced phase and stress changes, which can be correlated with the nanowire growth mechanism and the synergy of the bimetallic composition for the enhanced sensitivity (see figure).

    To boost the commercialization of vanadium redox flow batteries, a 5 KDa poly(ethyleneimine)-based dendritic additive was implemented in positive electrolyte. The energy density (to ca. 19.5 Wh L−1) and thermal stability (60 °C) improved considerably.

    Building on solid foundations: A hetero-bifunctional linker joining a “cleavable” disulfide moiety and a “clickable” terminal acetylene group was synthesized and used to decorate carbon nanotubes (CNTs). When used in combination with other selected terminal acetylene molecules, the linker can impart multimodality through a controlled click reaction to give carbon nanohybrids (see figure).
