  1. A Naphthalenediimide-Based Fluorescent Sensor for Detecting the pH within the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum of Living Cells

    Doing the two-step: An amino-core-substituted naphthalenediimide (NDI) derivative has been synthesized in good yield in two steps. The NDI bearing a diamine moiety undergoes a reversible protonation–deprotonation process, which results in intensity changes in the absorption and emission spectra (see figure). This derivative exhibits good photostability, good selectivity, and high sensitivity and is found to exhibit pH selectivity within the rough endoplasmic reticulum of living cells.

  2. The Generation Effect: Cavity Accessibility in Dense-Shell Polyphenylene Dendrimers

    It’s all relative: The confined geometry of polyphenylene dendrimers leads to a clear generation effect because the size and access to the voids in these dendrimers is determined by their generation. Host–guest behavior to benzene, toluene, and xylenes (BTX) analytes was investigated by using quartz crystal microbalances.

  3. d7/d8 Metal Complexes Constructed from 2,6-Bis(2-benzimidazolyl)pyridyl or 2,6-Di-(pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine Derivatives: Synthesis, Structure, Characterization, and Photocatalytic Activity

    Si Yue Wei, Jian Ling Wang, Cai Shun Zhang, Xue-Ting Xu, Xiao Xi Zhang, Ji Xiao Wang and Prof. Yong-Heng Xing

    A coordinated approach: The coordination complexes [Co(HL1)2], [Ni(HL1)2], and [Ni3(H2L2)2(HL2)2](OH)3(Ac)H2O (H2L1=2,6-bis(benzimidazol-2-yl)pyridine, H2L2=2,6-di-(5-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine) have been synthesized and characterized systematically. Surface photovoltage spectroscopy indicates p-type semiconductor characteristics and the ability to act as a photocatalyst to degrade the dye methylene blue (MB; see figure).

  4. Facile Synthesis of Hierarchical Magnesium Silicate Hollow Nanofibers Assembled by Nanosheets as an Efficient Adsorbent

    Drop out! A synthetic route is described for the fabrication of magnesium silicate double-walled hollow nanofibers (MSHNFs; see picture), which exhibit excellent adsorption performance and can be easily separated from solution, from electrospun silica hollow nanofibers (SHNFs). The MSHNFs are demonstrated to be an efficient adsorbent for water purification.

  5. The Development of Zn–Ce Hybrid Redox Flow Batteries for Energy Storage and Their Continuing Challenges

    The ebb and flow: The hybrid redox flow battery (RFB) Zn–Ce has the highest open-circuit cell potential at 2.4 V, amongst other aqueous RFBs. This review considers the thermodynamics and kinetics aspects of the CeIV/CeIII and Zn/ZnII redox couples and the operational variables, materials, cell design and performance used in RFBs (see figure). Challenges and the need for further science and technological development are highlighted.
