We describe the challenges involved with extending the limited lateral size of two-dimensional polymers (2DPs). An amphiphilic monomer with three-fold symmetry is chosen to form an ideally tessellated monolayer at the air/water interface. Anthracene [4+4] photo-dimerization is chosen as the...

The tendency of a Hg(II) ion to strongly quench fluorescence of potential fluorescent sensors is explored. Fluorescence measurements show the expected order of the chelation-enhanced fluorescence (CHEF) effect of Zn(II) > Cd(II) > Hg(II) ~ Cu(II), which is interpreted as...

Clusters of boron atoms exhibit intriguing size-dependent structures and chemical bonding that are different from bulk boron and may lead to new boron-based nanostructures. We report a combined photoelectron spectroscopic and ab initio study of the 22- and 23-atom boron...

A bowl-shaped organic host was prepared by linking two anthracene-embedded bispyridine ligands with two methylene spacers. The water-soluble host has a hemispherical hydrophobic cavity (∼1 nm in diameter) with two cationic methylenebispyridinyl (Lewis acidic) moieties and shows the selective recognition...
