  1. A Review of the Iron–Air Secondary Battery for Energy Storage

    Dr. R. D. McKerracher, Dr. Carlos Ponce de Leon, Dr. R. G. A. Wills, Dr. A. A. Shah and Prof. Frank C. Walsh

    Article first published online: 26 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402238

    Breathing space: The figure shows a unit iron–air cell with the structure of the bifunctional air-breathing cathode for the reduction and evolution of oxygen, the electrolyte, and the iron anode. This Minireview analyzes the history and recent developments of this system and highlights the challenges and opportunities that the low-cost iron–air cell provides.

  2. A Fluorescence Switch for the Detection of Nitric Oxide and Histidine and Its Application in Live Cell Imaging

    Dr. Gandhi Sivaraman, Thangaraj Anand and Prof. Dr. Duraisamy Chellappa

    Article first published online: 26 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402217

    Let there be light: A rhodamine-based copper complex as a selective, sensitive turn-on fluorescent chemosensor for nitric oxide/histidine has been developed (see scheme). The probe displayed a fast and selective response to NO over other biologically active oxygen and nitrogen species. The mechanism was studied and the viability of the probe for fluorescent imaging of nitric oxide and histidine in living cells was demonstrated.

  3. Magnetic Fe3O4 Nanoparticle-Supported Phosphotungstic Acid as a Recyclable Catalyst for the Kabachnik–Fields Reaction of Isatins, Imines, and Aldehydes under Solvent-Free Conditions

    Mohd Nazish, S. Saravanan, Dr. Noor-ul H. Khan, Prathibha Kumari, Dr. Rukhsana I. Kureshy, Dr. Sayed H. R. Abdi and Dr. Hari C. Bajaj

    Article first published online: 22 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402191

    A neat idea: The present study describes the catalytic efficiency of a magnetic-particle-supported heteropoly acid for the C[BOND]P bond-formation reaction. The catalyst worked very well under solvent-free conditions for a wide range of substrates and resulted in good to excellent yields of desired products like α-hydroxy and α-amino phosphonates (see figure). This catalytic protocol is simple, green, efficient, and recyclable.

  4. Assembling Mixed Carboxylic Acid Molecules on Hierarchical Structured Aluminum Substrates for the Fabrication of Superoleophobic Surfaces with Controlled Oil Adhesion

    Prof. Dr. Zhongjun Cheng, Dr. Hua Lai, Dr. Ying Du, Dr. Rui Hou, Dr. Chong Li, Prof. Dr. Naiqing Zhang and Prof. Dr. Kening Sun

    Article first published online: 22 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402237

    Like oil and water: Superoleophobic surfaces with tunable adhesion were obtained by assembling mixed carboxylic acid on nanostructured aluminum substrates. The surface adhesion can be controlled by simply controlling the surface chemical composition (see figure).

  5. DNA Targeting by Cationic Porphyrin–Ruthenium(II) Conjugates

    Dr. Caterina Musetti, Dr. Cinzia Spagnul, Dr. Giuliana Mion, Dr. Sivia Da Ros, Prof. Teresa Gianferrara and Prof. Claudia Sissi

    Article first published online: 22 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201402275

    Making light work: Cationic porphyrin–ruthenium(II) conjugates (see figure) bind DNA and are extremely efficient in cleaving it upon irradiation, regardless of its structural arrangement. The conjugates are promising photosensitizer agents for photodynamic therapy.
