      Complex behavior: The compound [H3O][Co2(dat)(sdba)2]H2sdba5 H2O (dat=3,5-diamino-1,2,4-triazole; H2sdba=4,4′-sulfonyldibenzoic acid) is ferroelectric at room temperature, exhibits polarization switching behavior upon dehydration and subsequent rehydration, and undergoes a solvent-mediated single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformation. Gas sorption studies on the dehydrated compound indicate the selective adsorption of CO2 over CH4 at 195 K.

    2. Morphology-Dependent Activities of Silver Phosphates: Visible-Light Water Oxidation and Dye Degradation

      Dr. Prashanth W. Menezes, Dr. Arindam Indra, Dr. Michael Schwarze, Felix Schuster and Prof. Dr. Matthias Driess

      Article first published online: 17 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500538

      Morphology is the key: A facile, scalable, and convenient strategy for the preparation of silver phosphates with diverse morphology for visible-light water oxidation as well as dye degradation has been uncovered (see figure).

    3. Ultrabright Lanthanide Nanoparticles

      Joan Goetz, Dr. Aline Nonat, Abdoulaye Diallo, Mohamadou Sy, Ildan Sera, Alexandre Lecointre, Dr. Christophe Lefevre, Chi Fai Chan, Prof. Ka-Leung Wong and Dr. Loïc J. Charbonnière

      Article first published online: 16 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201600007

      Put your coat on: Eleven ligands were tested for surface photosensitization of Tb-doped LaF3 nanoparticles. Isolation, purification and characterization of the surface-coated nanoparticles led to extremely bright scaffolds (brightness >106m−1 cm−1) that are stable in the presence of large excesses of competing anions. The nanoparticles were shown by luminescence microscopy to internalize into HeLa cells and localize to the lysosomes.

    4. Cysteine Radical/Metal Ion Adducts: A Gas-Phase Structural Elucidation and Reactivity Study

      Michael Lesslie, Dr. Justin Kai-Chi Lau, John T. Lawler, Dr. K. W. Michael Siu, Dr. Vincent Steinmetz, Dr. Philippe Maître, Dr. Alan C. Hopkinson and Dr. Victor Ryzhov

      Article first published online: 12 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500558

      Totally radical: Gas-phase complexes of the cysteine thiyl radical with alkali metal ions remain tridentate (S,O,N) sulfur-based radical species (see figure). Meanwhile, silver ions facilitate rearrangement of the thiyl radical into other isomers.

    5. Photometric Detection of Nitric Oxide Using a Dissolved Iron(III) Corrole as a Sensitizer

      Dr. Stefan Fischer, Jenya Vestfrid, Dr. Atif Mahammed, Felix Herrmann-Westendorf, Dr. Martin Schulz, Dr. Jürgen Müller, Dr. Olaf Kiesewetter, Prof. Dr. Benjamin Dietzek, Prof. Dr. Zeev Gross and Dr. Martin Presselt

      Article first published online: 2 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500553

      NO hiding from this sensor: Reversible binding of nitric oxide to an iron(III) corrole induces spectral changes close to the Soret absorption band, thus enabling photometric nitric oxide detection (see figure). Sensitive photometric detection in the picomolar range was possible using this amphiphilic iron(III) corrole. The amphiphilicity allows for self-assembly of the complex into thin solid films, which will be developed for sensing applications.

    1. Visible-Light-Driven Water Oxidation on a Photoanode by Supramolecular Assembly of Photosensitizer and Catalyst

      Hua Li, Dr. Fei Li, Yong Wang, Lichen Bai, Fengshou Yu and Prof. Licheng Sun

      Article first published online: 28 JAN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500539

      A “take-charge” guest: A ruthenium water oxidation catalyst was incorporated on the surface of a dye-sensitized nanostructured TiO2 film when it formed a host–guest adduct with the chromophore, providing a new strategy for photoanode construction.

    2. Glutathione Bioresponsive Cyclodextrin Nanosponges

      Prof. Francesco Trotta, Fabrizio Caldera, Chiara Dianzani, Monica Argenziano, Giuseppina Barrera and Roberta Cavalli

      Article first published online: 15 DEC 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500531

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cyclodextrin-based nanosponges: A new one-step synthetic route for the production of glutathione (GSH)-responsive nanosponges was reported. The system can encapsulate the anticancer drug doxorubicin and release it as a function of external GSH concentration. In vitro and in vivo studies showed an increase in effectiveness of anticancer drugs encapsulated within the nanosponge (see figure).
