Smart Fluorescent Dyes

Modulating photo- and electroluminescence in a stimuli-responsive molecular dye

17-Aug-2018

Controlling the excited electronic states in luminescent systems remains a challenge in the development of fluorescent and phosphorescent dyes. Now, scientists in Japan have developed a unique organic fluorophore that changes its emission color without loss of efficiency when externally ...

Two new ways to fluorinated structures

Chemo-enzymatic synthesis of fluorinated antibiotics

07-Aug-2018

Fluorinated structures make up more than 20 percent of modern drugs, but benign and fast fluorination schemes are scarce. In a study scientists have now combined dynamic kinetic resolution and nucleophilic fluorination for the asymmetric synthesis of florfenicol, a veterinary antibiotic. After ...

An Elastic Puff of Air

Superflexible aerogels are highly efficient absorbents, thermal insulators, and pressure sensors

27-Jul-2018

Airy, Airier, Aerogel. Until now, brittleness has limited the practical application of these delicate solids, which consist almost entirely of air-filled pores. This may now change: Japanese researchers have now introduced extremely elastic aerogels that are easy to process and can be produced at ...

Tailored Polymers from a Printer

Efficient chain transfer for 3D-printing of tough photopolymers

10-Jul-2018

An ever-growing number of coatings, including varnishes and printing inks, as well as tooth fillings, are cured with light. Yet, homogenous, tailored, polymer networks cannot be produced, and the materials tend to be brittle, which limits the use of photopolymers in applications like 3D printing, ...

Organic Crystals Twist, Bend, and Heal

Soft crystal gives a multifunctional, all-in-one material

19-Jun-2018

Crystals are brittle and inelastic? A novel class of smart, bendable crystalline organic materials has challenged this view. Now, scientists have engineered a molecular soft cocrystalline structure that bends and twists reversibly and without disintegration when stimulated by high temperature, ...

Combination Pack Battles Cancer

Nanoparticles with multifunctional drug precursor for synergistic tumor therapy

01-Jun-2018

For efficient cancer therapy with few side effects, the active drug should selectively attain high concentration in the tumor. Scientists have now introduced a new approach, in which two synergistic drug components are combined into a dimer. This dimer can be incorporated into polymeric ...

Shine bright like a nanoaggregate

Highly luminescent inks made from copper–iodine hybrid clusters with aggregation-induced emission

29-May-2018

Chinese scientists have turned copper–iodine cluster molecules into aggregated, highly luminescent nanostructures for use in light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The solid-state assemblies made of complexes of the copper–iodine cluster with phosphor–organic compounds as ligands are easily prepared, ...

Pores with a Memory

Porous polymer films with shape memory

08-Feb-2018

Whether for separation processes, photovoltaics, catalysis, or electronics, porous polymer membranes are needed in many fields. Membranes with micropores that switch between different shapes and/or sizes would expand the possibilities. Scientists have introduced a process that produces porous ...

Multifunctional platform for the delivery of gene therapeutics

Thermo-triggered release of a genome-editing machinery by modified gold nanoparticles

24-Jan-2018

Gene editing is one of the hottest topics in cancer research. A Chinese research team has now developed a gold-nanoparticle-based multifunctional vehicle to transport the “gene scissors” to the tumor cell genome. As the authors report, their nonviral transport and release platform of gene-editing ...

Man versus (synthesis) machine

Active machine learning for the discovery and crystallization of gigantic polyoxometalate molecules

04-Aug-2017

Who is the better experimentalist, a human or a robot? When it comes to exploring synthetic and crystallization conditions for inorganic gigantic molecules, actively learning machines are clearly ahead, as demonstrated by British Scientists in an experiment with polyoxometalates. Polyoxometalates ...
