Arginine-modified black phosphorus quantum dots with dual excited states for enhanced electrochemiluminescence in bioanalysis
Ju’s group found a dual excited states-mediated electrochemiluminescence (ECL) mechanism from both the S1 and T1 species with black phosphorus quantum dots (BPQDs) as a nanoemitter, and proposed a strategy to modulate the excited states via arginine modification to enhance the ECL efficiency.
Targeting KRAS promoter G-quadruplex for KRAS oncogene repression: Structural basis of small molecule recognition of KRAS G-quadruplex
By combining electricity and Pd catalysis, the first example of an asymmetric allylic pyrdinylation reaction was reported with 4-CN-pyridne as the pyridine source. The Pd catalyst acts not only as the transition-metal catalyst but also as an electron-transfer catalyst.
