Read ChemistryOpen‘s Latest Issue – 2.3

July 18, 2013

ChemOpen 2 3The current ChemistryOpen issue features the group of F. Matthias Bickelhaupt and their computational work on geometries adopted by d10-ML2 transition-metal complexes. The front cover and cover profile nicely complement their Full Paper and give interesting and valuable background information on their work and the incentive behind it. The Full Paper by Marc Steinmetz and Stefan Grimme presents a further computational paper that reports on an extensive benchmark for evaluating modern density functionals in transition-metal-catalyzed bond-activation reactions.

 Two other papers in this issue also revolve around transition metals. Yan-Yan Song, Patrik Schmuki and co-workers use self-organized TiO2-nanotube layers in combination with CdTe quantum dots for immunoassay-type detection and achieve excellent detection limits with this electrochemiluminescent technique. Narayane S. Hosmane and colleagues, on the other hand, synthesize nanocomposites of Fe10BO3/Fe3O4/SiO2 and GdFeO3/Fe3O4/SiO2 using a gel combustion technique for potential applications in diagnostic analysis of cancer through use in neutron capture therapy.
