Monte Carlo simulations were used to decipher the individual role of tripod molecular conformers in the surface-confined metal-organic self-assembly. Our calculations revealed the extent of structural heterogeneity introduced by the different conformers.

Stereochemical effects during two-dimensional crystallization of bisheptahelicene diastereomers on a Cu(111) surface have been studied with scanning tunnelling microscopy. The (M,M)- and (P,P)-enantiomers crystallize into a monolayer racemate lattice, whereas the (M,P)-diastereomers aggregate into their own monolayer phase.

Applications of amorphous Se nanoparticles (NPs) are limited due to their meticulous synthetic procedures and rapid phase transformation leading to low stability. A highly facile one-pot green method is being reported, wherein apart from tuning the morphology and the phase of the Se NPs, their stabilization could be prolonged to months as compared to a few minutes-to-days, known hitherto.

The Fe(TPA) (TPA = tris(pyridyl-2-methyl)amine) class of non-haem Fe catalysts is proposed to carry out selective hydrocarbon oxidations through the generation of high-valent iron species. Using ambient mass spectrometry, we obtain direct evidence for the formation of an FeV(O)(OH) species under catalytic conditions. In addition, 18O-labelling suggests that this FeV(O)(OH) species serves as the active oxidant in hydrocarbon oxidation catalysis.

A mild and general visible light photoredox catalysis-induced intermolecular three-component alkene 1,2-diarylation involving aryl C(sp2)-H functionalization is described. The key to controlling the chemoselectivity toward alkene 1,2-diarylation is the employment of a 2,2'-bipyridine base, thus allowing the formation of two new C(sp3)-C(sp2) bonds via aryl radical formation from aryldiazonium salts, addition across the C[double bond, length as m-dash]C bonds, and aryl C(sp2)-H functionalization cascades.

The construction of two-dimensional (2D) self-assembled nanostructures has been one of the considerably interesting areas of on-surface chemistry in the past few decades, and has benefited from the rapid development and improvement of scanning probe microscopy techniques. In this research field, many attempts have been made in the controllable fabrication of well-ordered and multifunctional surface nanostructures, which attracted interest because of the prospect for artificial design of functional molecular nanodevices...

We report a novel and easy-to-fabricate polynuclear nanoparticle based on the collaborative re-assembly of nanoparticles as a robust chemogene co-delivery platform. Specifically, the polynuclear nanoparticle carrying DOX and siBcl-2 exerts remarkable co-delivery efficiency, increases tumour cell apoptosis and inhibits tumour cell proliferation in vitro and in vivo.

The synthesis of neutral Mg complexes of asymmetric diborenes is reported. X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that the Mg center is unsymmetrically coordinated to the B2 units of diborenes. Theoretical calculations manifest the donation of electrons from the π-type orbitals of diborenes to an empty orbital of Mg.

Atomically dispersed Ni species on β-Mo2C (Ni/β-Mo2C) is designed and synthesized through a simple thermal treatment process. Benefitting from the synergistic effect between Ni species and β-Mo2C, Ni/β-Mo2C exhibits high activities for the HER at all pH values.

Beta-ketoacyl-ACP utilizing enzymes in fatty acid, polyketide and acyl-homoserine lactone biosynthetic pathways are important targets for developing antimicrobial, anticancer and antiparasitic compounds. Published reports on successful isolation of beta-ketoacyl-ACPs in a laboratory remain scarce to date and thus most beta-ketoacyl-ACP utilizing enzymes are routinely characterized using small molecule substrates in lieu of the bonafide 3-oxoacyl-ACPs. We report the systematic investigation into the electronic, geometric and spatial aspects of beta-ketoacyl-chain recognition to develop 3-oxoacyl-ACP substrate mimics for two beta-ketoacyl-ACP utilizing quorum signal synthases...

We have found that cyclic perfluorinated iodanes react with electrophiles (E+ = Br, Cl, F, I) to afford perfluorinated E-RF compounds. This reactivity is unexpected since cyclic perfluorinated iodanes are considered as electrophilic reagents that normally react with nucleophiles (e.g. Nu- = SR, OR) to afford Nu-RF products. The utility of this new transformation is demonstrated for a [18F]CF3CF2-containing compound which was prepared from [18F]XeF2 obtained from cyclotron produced [18F]fluoride.

An imine-based covalent organic framework (COF) decorated in its cavities with uracil groups has shown selective recognition towards adenine in water. These results show how the confinement of the base-pair inside the COF's pores allows a remarkable selective recognition in aqueous media.

A series of tunable iminium ions, generated in situ by the condensation of 4-trifluoromethyl-p-quinols with cyclic amines, can lead to the divergent synthesis of trifluoromethylated arylamines in a single step via redox-neutral isomerization. The direct α- and β-functionalization of saturated amines can be achieved regioselectively under mild conditions.

Four pairs of chiral supramolecular coordination cages were facilely synthesized, and they could efficiently inhibit amyloid-β (Aβ) aggregation with a high inhibition rate of 0.64-0.86. This research provides a new perspective on the design of chiral Aβ inhibitors using supramolecular metal-organic cages.

Novel D-π-A-π-D probes were investigated for the detection of Aβ plaques and NFTs. The probes displayed remarkable optical properties, and DADNIR-2 possessed high affinity towards Tau and Aβ aggregates (Kd = 0.41 nM and 1.04 nM, respectively) with certain selectivity. DADNIR-2 could penetrate the BBB and label Aβ plaques in vivo.

Supramolecular nanoparticles composed of doubly positively charged adamantane (ADA2+) and β-CD modified hyaluronic acid (HACD) were constructed. When the ester group in ADA2+ was hydrolyzed to a carboxyl group, the quaternary ammonium chain with a positive charge in ADA2+ converted to a "zwitterionic" structure, and the controlled binding and release of pDNA was realized.
