Influence of Antifreeze Proteins on the Ice/Water Interface

Guido Todde, Aatto Laaksonen, Sven Hovmöller
J. Phys. Chem. B | 2015 | 10.1021/jp5119713

Antifreeze proteins (AFP) are responsible for the survival of several species, ranging from bacteria to fish, that encounter subzero temperatures in their living environment. AFPs have been divided into two main families, moderately and hyperactive, depending...

Bicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2-ene-5-yl-7-ylium Radical Cation:  A Theoretical Validation of a Bishomoaromatic Radical Cation Intermediate

Sten Lunell, Per-Erik Larsson, Nessima Salhi-Benachenhou
Org. Lett. | 2003 | 10.1021/ol034272t

A natural bond orbital analysis of the distonic bicyclo[2.2.1]hepta-2-ene-5-yl-7-ylium radical cation interprets its structure and radical character by a three-center two-electron bond between C2, C3, and C7 (a bishomoaromatic stabilization) and a singly...

Carbon-based curiosities

Stuart Cantrill
Nature Chemistry | 2009 | 10.1038/nchem.219

Diamonds may be forever, but are some other forms of carbon merely passing fads? Stuart Cantrill considers why carbon often seems to be a chemist's best friend.

Reactions at your fingertips

Jon T. Njardarson
Nature Chemistry | 2012 | 10.1038/nchem.1416

Smart phones and tablets have revolutionized how we communicate, access and use information, work, travel, play and learn. Chemistry education and the field of chemistry have not surprisingly been positively impacted by this technology…

Sub-ångström-resolution crystallography reveals physical distortions that enhance reactivity of a covalent enzymatic intermediate

Karl M. Erixon, Ronald Kluger, Ralf Ficner, Kai Tittmann, Stefan Lüdtke, Piotr Neumann, Finian Leeper
Nature Chemistry | 2013 | 10.1038/nchem.1728

It is recognized widely that enzymes promote reactions by providing a pathway that proceeds through a transition state of lower energy. In principle, further rate enhancements could be achieved if intermediates are prevented from relaxing to their lowest...

Remote-controlled experiments with cloud chemistry

Richard A. Bourne, Jairton Dupont, Zacharias Amara, Raphael Horvath, Emilia Streng, Nigist Asfaw, Eduardo Pérez, Ryan A. Skilton, Jing Jin, Michael J. Scully, Guilherme L. P. Aydos, Jiawei Wang, Gurbuz Comak, Michael W. George, Martyn Poliakoff, Samantha L. Y. Tang, Peter A. Summers
Nature Chemistry | 2015 | 10.1038/nchem.2143

Developing cleaner chemical processes often involves sophisticated flow-chemistry equipment that is not available in many economically developing countries. For reactions where it is the data that are important rather than the physical product, the networking...

Heterogeneous catalysis: Teaching an old material new tricks

Elio Giamello
Nature Chemistry | 2012 | 10.1038/nchem.1486

A classic calcium aluminate has been modified to create an inorganic electride that can be used as a promoter of the catalytic synthesis of ammonia.

Iron complexes: Rieske business

Laura Croft
Nature Chemistry | 2009 | 10.1038/nchem.280

Iron–sulfur clusters are common cofactors in biological systems and are involved in a range of functions, including electron transfer, substrate binding and activation. These clusters are usually ligated by the cysteine residues of a protein, but there are...

Diphosphenido ligands: Short and straight

Neil Withers
Nature Chemistry | 2009 | 10.1038/nchem.293

There has been only one example reported so far of a terminal phosphorus monoxide complex. The chemistry of this functional group, therefore, is unexplored compared with others containing main-group elements.

Rapid assembly of complex cyclopentanes employing chiral, α,β-unsaturated acylammonium intermediates

Khoi N. Van, Morgan E. Shirley, Daniel Romo, Rae Lynn McFarlin, Gang Liu
Nature Chemistry | 2013 | 10.1038/nchem.1788

With the intention of improving synthetic efficiency, organic chemists have turned to bioinspired organocascade or domino processes that generate multiple bonds and stereocentres in a single operation. However, despite the great importance of substituted...

Powering the planet with solar fuel

Harry B. Gray
Nature Chemistry | 2009 | 10.1038/nchem.141

With energy swiftly rising to the top of the world's agenda, Harry B. Gray at the California Institute of Technology looks at how chemistry can help to harness the power of the Sun to meet the world's energy needs.

Charged and metallic molecular monolayers through surface-induced aromatic stabilization

N. Koch, A. Strozecka, B. Bröker, A. Wilke, S. Kera, J. Pflaum, B. Detlefs, S. Winkler, G. Schulze, A. Vollmer, C. Bürker, F. Schreiber, J. I. Pascual, I. Salzmann, J. Niederhausen, I. Fernandez-Torrente, K. J. Franke, G. Heimel, J. Frisch, A. Gerlach, N. Ueno, R. Schlesinger, S. Duhm, T. Hosokai
Nature Chemistry | 2013 | 10.1038/nchem.1572

Large π-conjugated molecules, when in contact with a metal surface, usually retain a finite electronic gap and, in this sense, stay semiconducting. In some cases, however, the metallic character of the underlying substrate is seen to extend onto the first...

Probing the biophysical interplay between a viral genome and its capsid

W. H. Roos, J. Snijder, G. A. Marti, D. M. A. Guérin, G. J. L. Wuite, R. J. Rose, A. J. R. Heck, J. Agirre, R. Sanchez-Eugenia, C. Uetrecht
Nature Chemistry | 2013 | 10.1038/nchem.1627

The interaction between a viral capsid and its genome governs crucial steps in the life cycle of a virus, such as assembly and genome uncoating. Tuning cargo–capsid interactions is also essential for successful design and cargo delivery in engineered viral...

2D materials: Porous graphene

Stephen Davey
Nature Chemistry | 2009 | 10.1038/nchem.415

The unusual electronic properties of graphene have generated great interest in research into other two-dimensional materials. Furthermore, introducing pores with controlled size and distribution could be a way of tuning these electronic properties.
