45_44/2006 “Sulflower”: A New Form of Carbon Sulfide(Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2006, 45, 7367) The bloom of a sunflower is used to describe the highly symmetric planar structure of octathio[8]circulene, whose trivial name “sulflower” derives from sulfur and flower (see cover picture). In their Communication on page 7367 ff., V. G. Nenajdenko and co-workers describe the synthesis and characterization of sulflower, a molecule that can be considered as a new form of carbon sulfide and as an oligothiophene, that is, as both inorganic and organic.

Culturing Hepatitis C
http://www.the-scientist.com/article/daily/24827/ An unusual HCV strain opens the pathogen's entire life cycle to scrutiny. The hepatitis C virus is a single-stranded, positive-sense, RNA virus that is roughly 50nm in size. The discovery of a highly virulent strain opened the door to more sophisticated study. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been difficult to study since its discovery in 1989; its unculturable status left researchers with a narrow view of the viral life cycle. But the discovery a few years ago of a highly infectious HCV strain (JFH-1) by Takaji Wakita's lab, then at Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Neuroscience, raised the possibility of developing a robust cell culture system. JFH-1 was a huge find, says Frank Chisari, from Scripps Research Institute, and Wakita gladly shared it. The race to develop an efficient cell culture system with JFH-1 was a short one, and in the Hot Papers featured here, several lab

J. Mater. Chem., 2006, 16, 3635-3639 DOI: 10.1039/b607466a Flying-seed-like liquid crystalsKazuchika Ohta, Tomoyuki Shibuya and Masahiro Ando Abstract:In 1911, Vorlrnder reported liquid-crystalline properties of unique (image)flying-seed-like(image) alkali metal carboxylates. They are neither (image)rod-like(image) nor (image)disk-like(image). Moreover, they have neither a rigid core nor flexible long chains. The molecular shapes are totally different from about 93(image)000 general liquid crystalline compounds. These flying-seed-like liquid crystals have been forgotten for about 100 years. We revealed and established for the first time from precise microscopic observations and temperature-dependent X-ray diffraction studies that sodium diphenylacetate exhibits a hexagonal columnar mesophase, and that potassium diethylacetate and potassium dimethylacetate exhibit a smectic A mesophase. These (image)old and new(image) flying-seed-like liquid crystals will become a novel fi

Where is My Ladder?
http://spectrum.ieee.org/sep06/4382IEEE Spectrum online What's Up, Postdoc? How to climb the academic ladder By Prachi Patel-Predd (image) Academic Heights: Richard J. Radke had to endure a bruising process to get himself onto the first rung of the tenure-track ladder. Late one night, Richard J. Radke was at his desk, putting together applications for faculty jobs. Nearing the completion of his Ph.D., he was hoping to embark on an academic career. A senior professor he knew well took Radke aside and said, “I hate to tell you this, but it’s going to be brutal,” he recalls. Radke, now an assistant professor in electrical, computer, and systems engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in

Science 1 September 2006: Vol. 313. no. 5791, pp. 1273 - 1276DOI: 10.1126/science.1129830 Fluorous Nanodroplets Structurally Confined in an Organopalladium Sphere Sota Sato, Junya Iida, Kosuke Suzuki, Masaki Kawano, Tomoji Ozeki, Makoto FujitaAstract: The distinct properties of fluorous phases are practically useful for separation, purification, and reaction control in organic synthesis. Here, we report the formation of a liquid-like fluorous droplet, composed of 24 perfluoroalkyl chains confined in the interior of a 5-nanometer-sized, roughly spherical shell that spontaneously assembled in solution from 12 palladium ions and 24 bridging ligands. Crystallographic analysis confirmed the rigid shell framework and amorphous interior. Perfluoroalkanes can dissolve in this well-defined fluorous phase, whereas they can hardly dis
