Towards intracellular delivery of peptides.
In view of our more comprehensive understanding with respect to intracellular pathways and their regulation, a vast number of interesting drug targets appear to be in a space that can be addressed neither by small molecules nor by biologics. Especial

Thermal synthesis of silver nanoplates revisited: a modified photochemical process.
The well-known photochemical and thermal methods for silver nanoplate synthesis have been generally regarded as two parallel processes without strong connections. Here we report a surprising finding that both visible light and ambient O2, which are c

A photochemical one-pot three-component synthesis of tetrasubstituted imidazoles.
Tetrasubstituted imidazoles can be formed in a photochemical one-pot synthesis from aldehydes, α-aminonitriles, and isoxazoles. Condensation of the first two components produces α-(alkylideneamino)nitriles which react under basic conditions with the

Dual Catalysis Strategies in Photochemical Synthesis.
The interaction between an electronically excited photocatalyst and an organic molecule can result in the genertion of a diverse array of reactive intermediates that can be manipulated in a variety of ways to result in synthetically useful bond const

Rapid access to glycopeptide antibiotic precursor peptides coupled with cytochrome P450-mediated catalysis: towards a biomimetic synthesis of glycopeptide antibiotics.
Understanding the mechanisms underpinning glycopeptide antibiotic biosynthesis is key to the future ability to reinvent these compounds. For effective in vitro characterization of the crucial later steps of the biosynthesis, facile access to a wide r

Photochemical synthesis of size-tailored hexagonal ZnS quantum dots.
ZnS quantum dots were synthetized at room temperature using a simple photochemical process involving ketyl radicals. Through the simple adjustment of reagent concentration, the method allows the control of nanoparticle size. Transmission electron mic

Continuous photochemical cleavage of linkers for solid-phase synthesis.
Photolabile linkers are an attractive alternative for solid-phase synthesis because they can be cleaved using light. However, irradiation in a classical batch photoreactor results in incomplete cleavage of the photolabile linkers. It is demonstrated

Liposomes as nanoreactors for the photochemical synthesis of gold nanoparticles.
A simple and novel method for the photochemical synthesis of AuNPs in liposomes is described. Gold salt is co-encapsulated with the photoinitiator Irgacure-2959 in POPC liposomes prepared via traditional thin-film hydration technique. UVA irradiation

Synthetic transitions: towards a new synthesis.
The evolution of life in our biosphere has been marked by several major innovations. Such major complexity shifts include the origin of cells, genetic codes or multicellularity to the emergence of non-genetic information, language or even consciousne

The design and synthesis of alanine-rich α-helical peptides constrained by an S,S-tetrazine photochemical trigger: a fragment union approach.
The design and synthesis of alanine-rich α-helical peptides constrained in a partially unfolded state by incorporation of the S,S-tetrazine phototrigger has been achieved, permitting, upon photochemical release, observation by 2D-IR spectroscopy of t
