ChemPlusChem 11/2012: Plastic Fantastic
In the Full Papers section, Judith Janikowski et al. report the first dicyano(nitroso)methanide-based organic ionic plastic crystals having advantageously wide plastic phase ranges and ionic conductivities, thus making them suitable electrolytes for electrochemical devices. Stéphane Bellemin-Laponnaz et al. present a series of Pd and Pt carbene complexes, and these new platinum-based compounds conjugated with oestradiol were evaluation as antitumor agents. Min Liu et al. report the growth of anatase TiO2 crystals having a large photoactive (001) surface. Meanwhile, Zhouguang Lu et al. demonstrate a simple method to improve the high rate capability of TiO2 nanotube arrays by annealing under a reducing atmosphere.
