Student Prizes Awarded at SupraChem 2017
ChemPlusChem was pleased to sponsor three student prizes at SupraChem 2017 held in Aachen, Germany this week. The worthy winners were, for best posters, Xin-Yue Hu (University of Heidelberg) and Chih-Wei Chu (University of Münster) and for best lecture, Stephan Sinn (University of Strasbourg). The winners received a text book and a certificate, which they are proudly holding in the picture above.
Congratulations to all winners on behalf of the journal and ChemPubSoc Europe.

- Planar Anthracene–Acetylene Frameworks as a Stereogenic Motif

Stereo-scopic: Various novel stereoisomers were generated by a rigid π-conjugated framework and one or two extra substituents. Diastereomers, enantiomers, and topomers that resulted from the restricted rotation were isolated or spectroscopically detected. A stereochemical phenomenon (see figure) of a self-assembled monolayer in two dimensions was monitored by means of scanning tunneling microscopy.

Overengineering? Small structural changes related to the deplanarization of a fluorophore based on the dithienothiophene dimer lead to a complete loss of mechanosensitivity of this probe when it is integrated in lipid bilayer membranes; however, nanoparticles of this material are fluorescent in water.

Show me your bits! Reversible C−C bond formation/cleavage on gold was induced electrochemically on a layer of acridan-based electron donor 1 that was transformed into acridinium 22+. Due to its high electrochemical bistability, this dynamic redox pair may be useful as a unimolecular memory unit, in which one molecule acts as one bit.
