    ABSTRACT: The copper complex [(bztpen)Cu](BF4)2 (bztpen=N-benzyl-N,N′,N′-tris(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)ethylenediamine) displays high catalytic activity for electrochemical proton reduction in acidic aqueous solutions, with a calculated hydrogen-generation rate constant (kobs) of over 10000 s−1. A turnover frequency (TOF) of 7000 h−1 cm−2 and a Faradaic efficiency of 96 % were obtained from a controlled potential electrolysis (CPE) experiment with [(bztpen)Cu]2+ in pH 2.5 buffer solution at −0.90 V versus the standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) over two hours using a glassy carbon electrode. A mechanism involving two proton-coupled reduction steps was proposed for the dihydrogen generation reaction catalyzed by [(bztpen)Cu]2+.

    ABSTRACT: Oxetanes offer exciting potential as structural motifs and intermediates in drug discovery and materials science. Here an efficient strategy for the synthesis of oxetane rings incorporating pendant functional groups is described. A wide variety of oxetane 2,2-dicarboxylates were accessed in high yields, including functionalized 3-/4-aryl- and alkyl-substituted oxetanes and fused oxetane bicycles. Enantioenriched alcohols provided enantioenriched oxetanes with complete retention of configuration. The oxetane products were further derivatized, while the ring was maintained intact, thus highlighting their potential as building blocks for medicinal chemistry.

    ABSTRACT: The detection of nucleic acids (NAs) within micro total analysis systems (μTASs) for point-of-care use is a rapidly developing research area. The efficient isolation of NAs from a raw sample is crucial for these systems to be maximally effective. The use of microfluidics assists in reducing sample sizes and reagent consumption, increases speed, avoids contamination, and enables automation. Through miniaturization into microchips, new techniques have been realized that would be unfavorable and inconvenient to use on a macroscopic scale, but provide an excellent platform for the purification of NAs on a microscopic scale. This Review considers the complexities of NA isolation with miniaturized and microfluidic devices, as well as the considerations when choosing a technique for microfluidic NA isolation, along with their advantages, disadvantages, and potential applications. The techniques presented include using silica-based surfaces, functionalized paramagnetic beads, oligonucleotide-modified polymer surfaces, pH-dependent charged surfaces, Al2O3 membranes, and liquid-phase isolation. This Review provides a basis to develop the chemistry to improve NA isolation and move it toward achieving 100 % efficiencies.

    ABSTRACT: We present an electrokinetic technique to increase the reaction rate and sensitivity of bead-based assays. We use isotachophoresis (ITP) to preconcentrate and co-focus target molecules and beads into a single ITP zone. The process achieves rapid mixing, stirring, and strongly increases the binding reaction rate. We demonstrate our assay with quantitative detection of 24 nt single-stranded DNA over a dynamic range of three orders of magnitude and multiplexed detection of ten target species per sample. We show that ITP can achieve approximately the same sensitivity as a well-stirred standard reaction in 60-fold reduced reaction time (20 min versus 20 h). Alternately, compared to standard reaction times of 30 min, we show that 20 min ITP hybridization can achieve 5.3-fold higher sensitivity.

    ABSTRACT: Protein-metal interactions—traditionally regarded for roles in metabolic processes—are now known to enhance the performance of certain biogenic materials, influencing properties such as hardness, toughness, adhesion, and self-healing. Design principles elucidated through thorough study of such materials are yielding vital insights for the design of biomimetic metallopolymers with industrial and biomedical applications. Recent advances in the understanding of the biological structure–function relationships are highlighted here with a specific focus on materials such as arthropod biting parts, mussel byssal threads, and sandcastle worm cement.

    ABSTRACT: To fully understand the fundamental properties of light-energy-converting materials, it is important to determine the local atomic configuration of photofunctional centers. In this study, direct imaging of one- and two-Tb-atom emission centers in a two-dimensional Tb-doped Ca2Ta3O10 nanocrystal was carried. The emission centers were located at the Ca sites in the perovskite structure, and no concentration-based quenching was observed even when the emission centers were in close proximity to each other. The relative photoluminescence efficiency for green emission of the nanosheet suspension was 38.1 %. Furthermore, the Tb-doped Ca2Ta3O10 nanocrystal deposited co-catalyst showed high photocatalytic activity for hydrogen production from water (quantum efficiency: 71 % at 270 nm). Tb3+ dopants in the two-dimensional crystal might have the potential to stabilize the charge separation state.

    ABSTRACT: Owing to their versatility and biocompatibility, peptide-based self-assembled structures constitute valuable targets for complex functional designs. It is now shown that artificial capsules based on β-barrel binding motifs can be obtained by means of dynamic covalent chemistry (DCC) and self-assembly. Short peptides (up to tetrapeptides) are reversibly attached to resorcinarene scaffolds. Peptidic capsules are thus selectively formed in either a heterochiral or a homochiral way by simultaneous and spontaneous processes, involving chiral sorting, tautomerization, diastereoselective induction of inherent chirality, and chiral self-assembly. Self-assembly is shown to direct the regioselectivity of reversible chemical reactions. It is also responsible for shifting the tautomeric equilibrium for one of the homochiral capsules. Two different tautomers (keto-enamine hemisphere and enol-imine hemisphere) are observed in this capsule, allowing the structure to adapt for self-assembly.

    ABSTRACT: O6-Corona[3]arene[3]tetraazines, a new class of macrocyclic compounds, were synthesized efficiently in a one-pot reaction from the nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction between 1,4-dihydroxybenzene derivatives and 3,6-dichlorotetrazine in warm acetonitrile. In the crystalline structure, the resulting macrocycles adopt highly symmetric structures of a regular hexagonal cavity with all bridging oxygen atoms and tetrazine rings located on the same plane with phenylene units orthogonally orientated. The constitutional aromatic rings are able to rotate around the macrocyclic annulus, depending on the steric effect of the substituents and temperature, in solution. The electron-deficient nature revealed by cyclic voltammetry, differential pulse voltammetry, and characteristic absorbances at a visible region show the O6-corona[3]arene[3]tetrazines to be suitable macrocyclic receptors for electron-rich guests.

    ABSTRACT: The methods used to improve catalytic activity are well-established, however elucidating the factors that simultaneously control activity and stability is still lacking, especially for oxygen evolution reaction (OER) catalysts. Here, by studying fundamental links between the activity and stability of well-characterized monometallic and bimetallic oxides, we found that there is generally an inverse relationship between activity and stability. To overcome this limitation, we developed a new synthesis strategy that is based on tuning the near-surface composition of Ru and Ir elements by surface segregation, thereby resulting in the formation of a nanosegregated domain that balances the stability and activity of surface atoms. We demonstrate that a Ru0.5Ir0.5 alloy synthesized by using this method exhibits four-times higher stability than the best Ru-Ir oxygen evolution reaction materials, while still preserving the same activity.

    ABSTRACT: A rhodium-catalyzed chemo-, regio-, and enantioselective addition of 2-pyridones to terminal allenes to give branched N-allyl 2-pyridones is reported. Preliminary mechanistic studies support the hypothesis that the reaction was initiated from the more acidic 2-hydroxypyridine form, and the initial kinetic O-allylation product was finally converted into the thermodynamically more stable N-allyl 2-pyridones.

    ABSTRACT: Anions play a crucial role in locking alkali metals on the interior of metal–organic capsules that contain structural water gates. This role is further evidenced when stitching-up the capsule seam, resulting in either expulsion or trapping of cesium ions depending on the anion employed.

    ABSTRACT: Flexible three-dimensional (3D) nanoarchitectures have received tremendous interest recently because of their potential applications in wearable electronics, roll-up displays, and other devices. The design and fabrication of a flexible and robust electrode based on cobalt sulfide/reduced graphene oxide/carbon nanotube (CoS2/RGO-CNT) nanocomposites are reported. An efficient hydrothermal process combined with vacuum filtration was used to synthesize such composite architecture, which was then embedded in a porous CNT network. This conductive and robust film is evaluated as electrocatalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction. The synergistic effect of CoS2, graphene, and CNTs leads to unique CoS2/RGO-CNT nanoarchitectures, the HER activity of which is among the highest for non-noble metal electrocatalysts, showing 10 mA cm−2 current density at about 142 mV overpotentials and a high electrochemical stability.

    ABSTRACT: Fluorescent sensors are powerful tools for visualizing cellular molecular dynamics. We present a high-throughput screening system, designated hybrid-type fluorescence indicator development (HyFInD), to identify optimal position-specific fluorophore labeling in hybrid-type sensors consisting of combinations of ligand-binding protein mutants with small molecular fluorophores. We screened sensors for glutamate among hybrid molecules obtained by the reaction of four cysteine-reactive fluorescence probes with a set of cysteine-scanning mutants of the 274 amino acid S1S2 domain of AMPA-type glutamate receptor GluA2 subunit. HyFInD identified a glutamate-responsive probe (enhanced glutamate optical sensor: eEOS) with a dynamic range >2400 %, good photostability, and high selectivity. When eEOS was specifically tethered to neuronal surfaces, it reliably visualized the spatiotemporal dynamics of glutamate release at single synapses, revealing synapse-to-synapse heterogeneity of short-term plasticity.

    ABSTRACT: The properties of liquid-crystalline (LC) hybrid systems made of inorganic nanoparticles grafted with photosensitive azo compounds are presented. For materials with a large density of azo ligands at the surface, the LC structure can be reversibly melted by UV light, and the return to the LC state does not require the absorption of visible light. For systems with a lower density of azo ligands, UV light causes shortening of the distance between metal sublayers in the lamellar phase. Interestingly, the azo derivatives attached to the nanoparticle surface show very different kinetics of cis/trans conformational change as compared to the free molecules. The cis form of free ligands in solution is stable for days, whereas the isomerization of molecules attached to the nanoparticle surface to the trans form takes only a few minutes. Apparently, owing to the crowded environment, azo ligands immobilized at a metal surface behave as they would in the condensed state.

    ABSTRACT: The disproportionation of elemental sulfur at moderate temperatures is investigated in the redox condensation involving o-halonitrobenzenes 1 and benzylamines 2. As a redox moderator, elemental sulfur plays the dual role of both electron donor and acceptor, generating its lowest and highest oxidation states: S−2 (sulfide equivalent) in benzothiazole 3 and S+6 (sulfate equivalent) in sulfamate 4, and filling the electron gap of the global redox condensation process. Along with this process, a cascade of reactions of reduction of the nitro group of 1, oxidation of the aminomethyl group of 2, metal-free aromatic halogen substitution, and condensation finally led to 2-arylbenzothiazoles 3.

    ABSTRACT: Nitrogen-rich quantum dots (N-dots) were serendipitously synthesized in methanol or aqueous solution at a reaction temperature as low as 50 °C. These N-dots have a small size (less than 10 nm) and contain a high percentage of the element nitrogen, and are thus a new member of quantum-dot family. These N-dots show unique and distinct photoluminescence properties with an increasing percentage of nitrogen compared to the neighboring carbon dots. The photoluminescence behavior was adjusted from blue to green simply through variation of the reaction temperature. Furthermore, the detailed mechanism of N-dot formation was also proposed with the trapped intermediate. These N-dots have also shown promising applications as fluorescent ink and biocompatible staining in C. elegans.
