  1. Flexible Coaxial Nanofibers: A Strategy to Realize Tunable and Enhanced Magnetic-Luminescent Bifunctionality

    Fei Bi, Prof. Xiangting Dong, Jinxian Wang and Guixia Liu

    Article first published online: 11 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402128

    Coaxial electrospinning: A new flexible nanostructure of [CoFe2O4/PVP]@[YAG:7 %Tb3+/PVP] magnetic-luminescent bifunctional coaxial nanofibers has been fabricated through electrospinning technology using a homemade coaxial spinneret. The coaxial nanofibers simultaneously possess superior magnetic and luminescent properties owing to the isolation of the YAG:7 %Tb3+ luminescent nanofibers from the CoFe2O4 magnetic nanofibers (see figure).

  2. Oxygen Permeation Improvement under CO2-Rich Environments through Catalytic Activation of Hierarchically Structured Perovskite Membranes

    Dr. Cyril Gaudillere, Julio Garcia-Fayos and Prof. José M. Serra

    Article first published online: 11 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402142

    Surface modification: Oxygen permeation through a highly porous La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3−δ (LSCF) freeze-cast asymmetric membrane is strongly enhanced through catalytic surface functionalization. Under CO2-free operation, the beneficial effect of the catalyst is mostly observed in the low-temperature region, in which gas exchange is a limiting step and the porous LSCF coating increases the number of active sites available (see figure).

  3. Reactive Sputtering of Plasmonic Pt/ZnO Films for Decomposition of Gas-Phase Methanol under Visible Light

    Prof. Hongjun Wu, Yue Ma, Yang Wang, Yang Gao, Dandan Yuan and Prof. Zhonghai Zhang

    Article first published online: 11 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402175

    Plasmon resonance: Photocatalytic films of ZnO coated with ultrathin (2 nm) Pt (see figure) are prepared by a sputtering method, and the Pt/ZnO films show an efficient visible-light photoresponse for the decomposition of gas-phase methanol owing to the unique surface plasmon resonance of the Pt film.

  4. Enantioselective Oxidation of Thioethers to Sulfoxides by Means of a Structural Template with Chiral-at-Metal Ruthenium Complexes

    Zheng-Zheng Li, Su-Yang Yao and Prof. Dr. Bao-Hui Ye

    Article first published online: 11 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402243

    Delta force: Treatment of Δ-[Ru(bpy)2(py)2]2+ (bpy=2,2′-bipyridine, py=pyridine) or Λ-[Ru(bpy)2(py)2]2+ with thioether ligands, then oxidation in situ, provides the corresponding Δ-[Ru(bpy)2{(R)-OSO[BOND]R}]+ or Λ-[Ru(bpy)2{(S)-OSO[BOND]R}]+ with 98 % ee values, which can be converted into the corresponding chiral sulfoxides in yields of 90 % with 83–93 % ee values (see scheme).

  5. Methoxyphenol and Dihydrobenzofuran as Oxidizable Labels for Electrochemical Detection of DNA

    Anna Simonova, Jana Balintová, Dr. Radek Pohl, Luděk Havran, Prof. Dr. Miroslav Fojta and Prof. Dr. Michal Hocek

    Article first published online: 9 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402194

    Clearly labeled: 4-Hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl (MOP) and 2,3-dihydrobenzofuran-5-yl (DHB) groups have been developed as new oxidizable labels for the electrochemical detection of DNA and for redox coding of nucleotides (see figure). MOP offers independent detection of the modified DNA.
