In this issue, B. M. Trost et al. review dinuclear metal-prophenol catalysts. How have they been used to facilitate, among others, aldol, Mannich, alkylation, and conjugation reactions and employed in natural-products syntheses? The Minireviews deal with fluorescent probes for imaging superoxide anions in living cells and in vivo (B. Tang et al.) and SERS activity of crystalline and amorphous semiconducting nanomaterials (X. Wang, L. Guo). M. E. Tauchert and J. Okuda highlight a hexagonal planar metal complex.
In the original-research section, N. Wang et al. reveal a bio-inspired nano-pocket spatial structure for targeting uranyl capture (see picture). B. Brummerstedt Iversen et al. describe a rapid one-step synthesis and compaction of high-performance n-type Mg3Sb2 thermoelectrics. T. Chen et al. succeeded in the chirality-driven transportation and oxidation prevention by chiral selenium nanoparticles. H. Cui et al. present a supramolecular design of unsymmetric reverse bolaamphiphiles for cell-sensitive hydrogel degradation and drug release.
