 Application of a Metal‐Mediated Base Pair to the Detection of Medicinally Relevant Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. /2017)

The cover picture shows in a figurative sense that molecular beacons can be used to detect medicinally relevant single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The beacons are depicted by lighthouses and the oligonucleotides containing the SNPs are represented by boats. The study shows how the formation of a metal-mediated base pair involving an artificial nucleoside surrogate finds its application in a biologically relevant context. Details are discussed in the article by B. Jash and J. Müller on page -- ff (https://doi.org/10.1002/ejic.201700665). For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile (https://doi.org/10.1002/ejic.201700881).

 Synthesis, Reactivity and Catalytic Activity

Iridium halide complexes [1,1-X2-8-SMe2-1,2,8-IrC2B9H10]2 (X = Cl, Br, I) were synthesized by reaction of the cyclooctadiene derivative 1-cod-8-SMe2-1,2,8-IrC2B9H10 with anhydrous hydrohalic acids HX. These complexes have proven to be effective catalysts for the dimerization of alkynes and the reductive amination of aldehydes and ketones.

Mapping the Free Energy of Lithium Solvation in the Protic Ionic Liquid Ethylammonuim Nitrate: A Metadynamics Study

Articles from Wiley - 1 agosto, 2017 - 00:00

 A Metadynamics Study

The Back Cover picture shows the free energy landscape for Li+ solvation in ethyleammonuim nitrate (EAN). Using first-principle simulations aided by a metadynamics approach, the solvation and transport of lithium in EAN was investigated. We identified different lithium solvation scenarios that were explored by the metadynamics and quantified their free energy barriers. The lowest free-energy barrier appears to be consistent with what has been observed experimentally. More details can be found in the Full Paper by Kachmar et al. (DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201700510).

Design of Iron(II) Phthalocyanine‐Derived Oxygen Reduction Electrocatalysts for High‐Power‐Density Microbial Fuel Cells

I've got the power: Iron(II) phthalocyanine (FePc) is deposited onto two different carbonaceous supports. Rotating ring disk electrode (RRDE) analysis and electrochemical measurements in microbial fuel cells (MFCs) show that carbon black (Black Pearls)-supported FePc (Fe-BP(N)) exhibits the highest performance. A high maximum power density is achieved.

Monitoring Complex Formation by Relaxation‐Induced Pulse Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Distance Measurements

Bound to spin: Relaxation induced dipolar pulse electron paramagnetic resonance allows nanometer distance measurements between paramagnetic centers, particularly metals. Here it is shown that also the degree of the ligand–metal binding can be quantified if certain pitfalls are circumvented using a spin labeled terpyridine binding to CuII ions.

A Small-Molecule Inhibitor of Prion Replication and Mutant Prion Protein Toxicity

Articles from Wiley - 1 agosto, 2017 - 00:00

A Small‐Molecule Inhibitor of Prion Replication and Mutant Prion Protein Toxicity

Into the fold: Prion diseases are neurodegenerative disorders characterized by the accumulation in the brain of a self-replicating, misfolded isoform (PrPSc) of the cellular prion protein (PrPC). No therapies are available for these pathologies. We capitalized on previously described cell-based assays to screen a library of small molecules, and identified 55, a compound capable of counteracting both prion replication and toxicity. Compound 55 may represent the starting point for the development of a completely new class of therapeutics for prion diseases.

New Approach to 1,4‐Benzoxazin‐3‐ones by Electrochemical C−H Amination

Simple electrified access to benzoxazinones starting from readily accessible methyl phenoxyacetetes was established. Similar benzoxazine compounds occur naturally in gramineous plants such as wheat, maize, rye, or rice. The electrochemical amination protocol furnishes, upon aminolysis, the heterocyclic benzoxazinone motif. The simple electric wires underline the easy-to-perform protocol.

Biphasic Liquid Crystal and the Simultaneous Measurement of Isotropic and Anisotropic Parameters by Spatially Resolved NMR Spectroscopy

A moderately concentrated solution of a helically chiral polyisonitrile forms a stable two-phase system in CDCl3 with the dense phase being close to isotropic and the less dense layer forming a completely anisotropic lyotropic liquid crystalline phase. This enables the enantiodifferentiating measurement of isotropic and anisotropic NMR parameters from a single sample by novel spatially resolved NMR methods.

 Metal Active‐Template Synthesis of Strapped‐Porphyrin [2]Rotaxanes

Copper and zinc work in tandem in a metal-mediated click reaction that is promoted by the presence of more than one metal in a ditopic macrocycle. The successful formation of a triazole by alkyne–azide cyclization in the pocket of a macrobicyclic phenanthroline-strapped porphyrin generates a rotaxane in which the metal bound in the porphyrin controls the position of the axle. The cover picture illustrates the joint effort of the Japanese and French groups in this scientific investigation and cultural exchange.

Tunable Ligand Effects on Ruthenium Catalyst Activity for Selectively Preparing Imines or Amides by Dehydrogenative Coupling Reactions of Alcohols and Amines

Ligand-controlled selective dehydrogenative coupling reactions of alcohols and amines were achieved by using ruthenium complexes bearing P−N bidentate ligands with zinc salts. A wide variety of alcohols and amines were used in the present systems to obtain the corresponding imines and amides. In addition, a ruthenium complex as the catalyst precursor was successfully isolated and reaction mechanisms are proposed based on experiments, including a time-course study, Hammett plot, and measurements of the kinetic isotope effect.

Loops and Cycles at Surfaces: The Unique Properties of Topological Polymer Brushes

Articles from Wiley - 1 agosto, 2017 - 00:00

 The Unique Properties of Topological Polymer Brushes

Can the performance of polymer brushes as steric stabilizers, biopassive layers and boundary lubricants be improved? The answer to this intriguing question encompasses the application of polymer grafts presenting different chain topologies, beyond chain linearity. Polymer adsorbates forming loops and cyclic macromolecules yielding cyclic brushes on flat and nanoparticle surfaces generate films with unique physicochemical properties. Benetti and co-workers review their preparation, characterization and modeling, trying to redefine the paradigm for surface functionalization by polymer grafting. More information can be found in the Minireview by E. M. Benetti et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201701940).

Photoactive Surface‐Grafted Polymer Brushes with Phthalocyanine Bridging Groups as an Advanced Architecture for Light‐Harvesting

A novel ladder-like architecture was proposed for surface-grafted photoactive brushes. Axially bifunctionalized phthalocyanines were used to bridge the chains adopting extended conformations in densely grafted brushes. Such an arrangement of chromophores makes the system promising for light-harvesting applications (see scheme).
