Chemical Society Reviews profiles the Emerging Investigators featured in this issue.
Polyester elastomers for soft tissue engineering
Polyester elastomers are soft, biodegradable and biocompatible and are commonly used in various biomedical applications, especially in tissue engineering.
Chemical methods for mapping cysteine oxidation
Methods to characterise oxidative modifications of cysteine help clarify their role in protein function in both healthy and diseased cells.
3D printing in chemical engineering and catalytic technology: structured catalysts, mixers and reactors
This review highlights the research using 3D printing and computational modeling as digital tools for the design and fabrication of reactors and structured catalysts.
Fluorescent probes for the simultaneous detection of multiple analytes in biology
This review identifies and discusses fluorescent sensors that are capable of simultaneously reporting on the presence of two analytes for biological application.
Non-noble metal-catalysed carbonylative transformations
The main achievements on non-noble metal (Mn, Fe, Cu, Co, Ni) catalysed carbonylative transformations have been summarized and discussed.
Access to the meta position of arenes through transition metal catalysed C–H bond functionalisation: a focus on metals other than palladium
The elaboration of simple arenes in order to access more complex substitution patterns is a crucial endeavor for synthetic chemists, given the central role that aromatic rings play in all manner of important molecules.
Molecular engineering of organic electroactive materials for redox flow batteries
With high scalability and independent control over energy and power, redox flow batteries (RFBs) stand out as an important large-scale energy storage system.
Multimolecular assemblies on high surface area metal oxides and their role in interfacial energy and electron transfer
High surface area metal oxides offer a unique substrate for the assembly of multiple molecular components at an interface.
Stereoselective arene formation
The common perception of arenes as flat and symmetric entities is juxtaposed to the counterintuitive circumstance that stereoselective arene formation offers a means to prepare an exceptional range of chiral aromatic structures in isomerically enriched form.
Recent progress in the assembly of nanodevices and van der Waals heterostructures by deterministic placement of 2D materials
Designer heterostructures can be assembled layer-by-layer with unmatched precision thanks to the recently developed deterministic placement methods to transfer two-dimensional materials.
Quinone-based fluorophores for imaging biological processes
This tutorial review covers recent advances in the design, synthesis and application of quinone-based fluorescent agents for visualizing specific processes in multiple biological systems, from cells to tissues and complex organisms in vivo.
Fluorogenic reaction-based prodrug conjugates as targeted cancer theranostics
This Tutorial Review will describe various fluorogenic reaction-based prodrug strategies used for targeted theranostic drug delivery.
