Themed collection ChemComm: Editor’s Choice
NO sorption, in-crystal nitrite and nitrate production with arylamine oxidation in gas–solid single crystal to single crystal reactions
Chemisorptive capture and in-crystal conversions of NO at dicobalt site SC–SC reactions.
Heptylmannose-functionalized cellulose for the binding and specific detection of pathogenic E. coli
We developed a chemical method to covalently functionalize cellulose nanofibers and cellulose paper with mannoside ligands displaying a strong affinity for the FimH adhesin from pathogenic E. coli strains.
Imidazolium-benzimidazolates as convenient sources of donor-functionalised normal and abnormal N-heterocyclic carbenes
Imidazolium-benzimidazolates are established as a new family of “instant carbenes” with highly versatile coordination chemistry.
p-Phosphonic acid calixarene mediated synthesis of ultra-large, ultra-thin, single-crystal gold nanoplatelets
Large, ultrathin, single-crystal gold platelets are produced in the presence of p-phosphonic acid calixarene as both a catalyst and stabiliser.
Planar rings in nano-Saturns and related complexes
Nitrogen substitution into the ortho positions in polyaryl macrocycles creates planar or ribbon structures leading to such structures as this nano-Saturn with a flat ring.
Enhancing selectivity of cation exchange with anion receptors
Introducing a new supramolecular approach where anion receptors are used to modify the selectivity of ligands for cations.
