  1. A Label-Free Fluorescent Sensor Based on Structure-Switching Oligonucleotides for the Detection of Ag+, Biothiols and Acetylcholinesterase Activity (pages 6844–6849)

    Baozhu Zhang and Prof. Dr. Chunying Wei

    Version of Record online: 21 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201701089

    The fluorescent sensor based on the conformational switch of human telomeric G-rich sequence was employed for quantitative analysis of Ag+ and biothiols, and the cysteine-sensing system was further used to detect the activity of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and the screening of AChE inhibitors.

  2. Effect of the Electrolyte Alkaline Ions on the Electrochemical Performance of α-Ni(OH)2/Activated Carbon Composites in the Hybrid Supercapacitor Cell (pages 6693–6698)

    L. Soserov, Dr. T. Boyadzhieva, Dr. V. Koleva, Dr. Ch. Girginov, Dr. A. Stoyanova and Prof. R. Stoyanova

    Version of Record online: 21 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201701579

    We demonstrate the positive effect of the Li+ ions from the alkaline electrolyte on the discharge capacitance and the cycling stability of α-Ni(OH)2/AC composite electrodes. This is a consequence of the preferred intercalation of Li+ into α-Ni(OH)2 leading to a smoothing of the electrode surface.

  3. Poly (Lactic Acid) Grafting of TiO2 Nanoparticles : A Shift in Dye Degradation Performance of TiO2 from UV to Solar Light (pages 6901–6908)

    Tauhid Shaikh, Anuradha Rathore and Dr. Harjinder Kaur

    Version of Record online: 16 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201701560

    The work describes solar light driven degradation of textile dyes. TiO2 nanoparticles were grafted by polylactic acid and the bioderived, recyclable catalyst was used to study phtodegradation of malachite green and methyl orange. Kinetic of degradation is first order and the reaction rates are fastest reported so far.

  4. A New Synthetic Approach to C2-Symmetric Octacyclic Cage Diol via Claisen Rearrangement and Ring-Closing Metathesis as Key Steps (pages 6877–6881)

    Prof. Dr. Sambasivarao Kotha and Subba Rao Cheekatla

    Version of Record online: 16 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201701633

    A short synthetic route to C2-symmetric bisannulated octacyclic cage diol 20 is reported in eight linear synthetic steps from readily available 1,4-hydroquinone 22 using significant transformations such as Claisen rearrangement, [2+2] photocycloaddition and ring-closing metathesis (RCM) protocol as key steps. The synthetic approach defined here allows the assembly of highly functionalized novel cage frameworks which are difficult to design by traditional routes.

  5. A New Class of Boronic Acid-Derived Amphiphile-Based Gel Emulsions Capable of Entrapping and Releasing Vitamin B12 and Doxorubicin (pages 6929–6939)

    Dr. Sumita Roy, Dr. Monali Maiti and Dr. Aparna Roy

    Version of Record online: 16 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/slct.201701397

    A detailed investigation of the gel-emulsion property of two amidoalkyl boronic acid derivatives has been carried out. The mechanically and thermally stable gel-emulsions showed concentration dependent morphological changes. Spectroscopic studies established the entrapping and releasing ability of vitamin B12 and doxorubicin hydrochloride at room temperature with retention of structure and activity.
