Unexpected explanation for the enigmatic acid-catalysed reactivity of [Fe4S4X4]2- clusters

14 April, 2014 - 15:17

Chem. Commun., 2014, 50,4799-4802
DOI: 10.1039/C4CC00922C, CommunicationAhmed Alwaaly, Ian Dance, Richard A. Henderson
DFT calculations reveal that protonation of [small mu ]3-S in [Fe4S4X4]2- (and other FeS clusters) breaks an Fe-S bond, creating an under-coordinated Fe which is the reactive site of substitution.

Electrohydrodynamic removal of non-specific colloidal adsorption at electrode interfaces

14 April, 2014 - 15:17

Chem. Commun., 2014, 50,4813-4815
DOI: 10.1039/C4CC01357C, CommunicationSakandar Rauf, Muhammad J. A. Shiddiky, Matt Trau
This communication reports the use of an electrohydrodynamic surface shear force to selectively manipulate colloid-surface interactions. We demonstrate the selection of strongly (specifically) bound biomolecular-functionalized colloidal beads over more weakly (non-specifically) bound beads.

Single-crystals of vaterite, the least-stable anhydrous polymorph of CaCO3, are rare in biogenic and synthetic systems. We here describe the synthesis of high aspect ratio single crystal vaterite rods under additive-free conditions by precipitating CaCO3 within the cylindrical pores of track-etch membranes.
