NJC Issue 12 now published

In the December issue, find out more on the latest science published in NJC, featuring an NJC Opinion on molecular set-reset memories by  Uwe Pischel and Joakim Andréasson,  2 Perspectives highlighting calixarenes from different angles, and much more in the other 38 articles!

The outside front cover features the Perspective by Kaisa Helttunen (University of Jyväskylä) and Patrick Shahgaldian (University of Applied Science Northwestern Switzerland) who present the developments of the chemistry of amphiphilic calixarenes and resorcinarenes with a clear focus on the synthetic paths used for their production and their self-assembly properties in water.

Self-assembly of amphiphilic calixarenes and resorcinarenes in water, Kaisa Helttunen and Patrick Shahgaldian, New J. Chem., 2010, 34, 2704-2714 DOI:10.1039/C0NJ00123F

The inside front cover presents work by Janet Blümel et al. on novel linkers for immobilized catalysts. The Rh catalysts immobilized by a rigid linker scaffold, characterized by 119Sn MAS and X-ray analysis, cannot dimerize or touch the silica surface. The batches are recycled 30 times! Deciphering the cover artwork, the substrate and product are in the “liquid phase”, while the catalyst is like a palm or mangrove tree on an island, and cannot dimerize or hang down into the sand. The hydrogen for the catalytic reaction rides in as a cloud, while the Cl of the Wilkinson-type complex features the coconut.

New Linker Systems for Superior Immobilized Catalysts, Björn Beele, Johannes Guenther, Melanie Perera, Michaela Stach, Thomas Oeser and Janet Blüme New J. Chem. 2010, 34, 2729-2731 DOI: 10.1039/C0NJ00482K
