- A Combinatorial Study of Photoelectrochemical Properties of Fe-W-O Thin Films
Kirill Sliozberg, Dr. Dominik. Schäfer, Robert Meyer, Prof. Dr. Alfred Ludwig and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schuhmann

Film library: The photoelectrochemical properties of compositions from a ternary Fe-W-O materials library strongly depend on the Fe/W ratio as well as the processing parameters. Photoelectrochemical screening was performed by using an automated optical scanning droplet cell on a continuous thin-film materials library with a controlled gradient of compositions. The maximal photocurrent was obtained from a measurement area containing 55 at % Fe (see figure).
- Control of Spatial Organization of Electrospun Fibers in a Carbon Felt for Enhanced Bioelectrode Performance

How does it feel? Electrospun carbon felts were synthesized with either aligned or randomly distributed fibers (see picture). Resistivity measurements were realized to try to establish a normalized procedure for fibrous materials. Felts were modified with the enzyme laccase and tested towards the oxygen reduction reaction, which is typical for the cathode part of a biofuel cell.
- A Naphthalenediimide-Based Fluorescent Sensor for Detecting the pH within the Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum of Living Cells
Namdev V. Ghule, Dr. Rajesh S. Bhosale, Dr. Kiran Kharat, Dr. Avinash L. Puyad, Dr. Sheshanath V. Bhosale and Dr. Sidhanath V. Bhosale
Article first published online: 20 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402307
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.
- The Generation Effect: Cavity Accessibility in Dense-Shell Polyphenylene Dendrimers
Dr. Malte Brutschy, Dr. René Stangenberg, Cornelia Beer, Dr. Daniel Lubczyk, Prof. Martin Baumgarten, Prof. Klaus Müllen and Prof. Siegfried R. Waldvogel
Article first published online: 18 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402298
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.
- 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
Article first published online: 17 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402255
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).
