Hot article roundup – November

flameHere in the UK we’ve been enduring the coldest start to winter since 1976. Thankfully, we published a great selection of hot Edge articles last month. As per all Chemical Science articles, they are free to access until the end of 2011.

Enjoy!

A ‘hole’ lot of mobility: Chi-Ming Che and colleagues report single crystal organoplatinum complexes with high charge mobility

Fingerprinting red wine: Eric Anslyn and colleagues have developed a sensor that can discriminate between different tannins and fingerprint a wide variety of red wines

Dinitrogen complexation with main group radicals: Spectroscopic evidence for weak but distinct interactions between several main group element radicals and physically dissolved dinitrogen in solution

New class of organic acceptors: A family of push–pull chromophores with a [4]dendralene backbone and a remarkably high propensity for reversible electron uptake

Carbene catalysts for group transfer: Gregory Hillhouse discusses the synthesis and carbene transfer reactivity of dimeric nickel bridging-carbene complexes

Building complex oxides layer-by-layer: Matthew Rosseinsky and colleagues exploit the capabilities of modern thin film deposition to grow an artificial metastable oxide

Carbenoids’ role in silver catalysis: Silver(I)-catalysed reactions of vinyldiazoacetates involve the intermediacy of silver-carbenoid species
