Plasmid DNA‐Based Bioluminescence‐Activated System for Photodynamic Therapy in Cancer Treatment

Published: 05 March 2021

Author(s): Di Fan, Ting Wang, Jinhui Hu, Lin Zhou, Jiahong Zhou, Shaohua Wei

Abstract The low depth of tissue penetration by therapeutic light sources severely restricts photodynamic therapy (PDT) in treating deep‐seated tumors. Using a luciferase/d‐luciferin bioluminescence system to artificially create internal light sources in cells instead of external light sources is an effective means of solving the above problems. However, high‐efficiency bioluminescence requires a higher concentration of luciferase in the cell, which poses a considerable challenge to the...

Natural and Synthetic Oligoarylamides: Privileged Structures for Medical Applications

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Tim Seedorf, Andreas Kirschning, Danny Solga

Abstract The term “privileged structure” refers to a single molecular substructure or scaffold that can serve as a starting point for high‐affinity ligands for more than one receptor type. In this report, a hitherto overlooked group of privileged substructures is addressed, namely aromatic oligoamides, for which there are natural models in the form of cystobactamids, albicidin, distamycin A, netropsin, and others. The aromatic and heteroaromatic core, together with a flexible selection of...

Reactivity of Single Transition Metal Atoms on a Hydroxylated Amorphous Silica Surface: A Periodic Conceptual DFT Investigation

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Xavier Deraet, Jan Turek, Mercedes Alonso, Frederik Tielens, Stefaan Cottenier, Paul W. Ayers, Bert M. Weckhuysen, Frank De Proft

Abstract The drive to develop maximal atom‐efficient catalysts coupled to the continuous striving for more sustainable reactions has led to an ever‐increasing interest in single‐atom catalysis. Based on a periodic conceptual density functional theory (cDFT) approach, fundamental insights into the reactivity and adsorption of single late transition metal atoms supported on a fully hydroxylated amorphous silica surface have been acquired. In particular, this investigation revealed that the...

Computational Insights into Different Mechanisms for Ag‐, Cu‐, and Pd‐Catalyzed Cyclopropanation of Alkenes and Sulfonyl Hydrazones

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Yong Wu, Shanshan Cao, Iskander Douair, Laurent Maron, Xihe Bi

Abstract The [2+1] cycloaddition reaction of a metal carbene with an alkene can produce important cyclopropane products for synthetic intermediates, materials, and pharmaceutical applications. However, this reaction is often accompanied by side reactions, such as coupling and self‐coupling, so that the yield of the cyclopropanation product of non‐silver transition‐metal carbenes and hindered alkenes is generally lower than 50 %. To solve this problem, the addition of a low concentration of...

How the Physicochemical Properties of the Bulk Material Affect the Ablation Crater Profile, Mass Balance, and Bubble Dynamics During Single‐Pulse, Nanosecond Laser Ablation in Water

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Mark‐Robert Kalus, Stephan Barcikowski, Bilal Gökce

Abstract Understanding the key steps that drive the laser‐based synthesis of colloids is a prerequisite for learning how to optimize the ablation process in terms of nanoparticle output and functional design of the nanomaterials. Even though many studies focus on cavitation bubble formation using single‐pulse ablation conditions, the ablation efficiency and nanoparticle properties are typically investigated under prolonged ablation conditions with repetition rate lasers. Linking single‐pulse...

Zirconium Catalyzed Hydroaminoalkylation for the Synthesis of α‐Arylated Amines and N‐Heterocycles

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Ana Koperniku, Laurel L. Schafer

Abstract The zirconium catalyzed hydroaminoalkylation of alkenes with N‐aryl‐ and sterically demanding N‐alkyl‐α‐arylated secondary amines by using commercially available Zr(NMe2)4 is reported. N‐phenyl‐ and N‐isopropylbenzylamine are used as amine substrates to establish the alkene substrate scope. Exclusively linear products are obtained in the presence of bulky vinylsilanes. Challenging α‐heteroarylated amines and functionalized alkene substrates are compatible with this easy to use...

Crystal Structure and Ferroelectric Evidence of BaZnSi3O8, a Low‐Permittivity Microwave Dielectric Ceramic

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Zheng‐Yu Zou, Xiao‐Qiang Song, Lei Jiang, Chang‐Lai Yuan, Wen‐Zhong Lu, Yong‐Ming Hu, Wen Lei

Abstract BaZnSi3O8 ceramic was prepared by the conventional solid‐state method and sintered at 1100 °C. XRD and synchrotron Rietveld refinement analyses revealed the BaZnSi3O8 ceramic presented a monoclinic structure with a space group of P21/a (No.14), which is reported for the first time. The BaZnSi3O8 ceramic presented a weak ferroelectricity, which was confirmed by the P–E loop and the 90° nanoscale ferroelectric domain. Although ϵr–T displayed two ϵr abnormal peaks at 400 °C and 460 °C,...

High‐pressure Nucleation of Low‐Density Polymorphs**

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Szymon Sobczak, Paulina Ratajczyk, Andrzej Katrusiak

Abstract New polymorphs β and γ of bis‐3‐nitrophenyl disulphide, crystallized above 0.3 GPa, are less dense than the ambient‐pressure polymorph α. This counterintuitive density relation results from the high‐entropy nucleation and subsequent kinetic crystallization. The work performed by pressure compensates the high entropy and temperature product, substantiated in varied conformers and increased chemical potential. Pressure‐increased viscosity promotes the kinetic polymorphs, in accordance...

Synthesis and Evaluation of Novel Ring‐Strained Noncanonical Amino Acids for Residue‐Specific Bioorthogonal Reactions in Living Cells

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Christopher D. Reinkemeier, Christine Koehler, Paul F. Sauter, Nataliia V. Shymanska, Cecile Echalier, Anna Rutkowska, David W. Will, Carsten Schultz, Edward A. Lemke

Abstract Bioorthogonal reactions are ideally suited to selectively modify proteins in complex environments, even in vivo. Kinetics and product stability of these reactions are crucial parameters to evaluate their usefulness for specific applications. Strain promoted inverse electron demand Diels–Alder cycloadditions (SPIEDAC) between tetrazines and strained alkenes or alkynes are particularly popular, as they allow ultrafast labeling inside cells. In combination with genetic code expansion...

Electrochemically Enabled One‐Pot Multistep Synthesis of C19 Androgen Steroids

Published: 04 March 2021

Author(s): Florian Sommer, C. Oliver Kappe, David Cantillo

Abstract The synthesis of many valuable C19 androgens can be accomplished by removal of the C17 side chain from more abundant corticosteroids, followed by further derivatization of the resulting 17‐keto derivative. Conventional chemical reagents pose significant drawbacks for this synthetic strategy, as large amounts of waste are generated, and quenching of the reaction mixture and purification of the 17‐ketosteroid intermediate are typically required. Herein, we present mild, safe, and...
