The cover picture shows the concept of bottom-up fabrication of highly patterned nanoparticle arrays on self-assembled monolayers via selective capture of the particles onto the blue-colored components. This review summarizes the most recent advances of bottom-up fabrication applications of self-assembled monolayers, including creation of nanopatterns, surface reactions and new characterization methods. More details are discussed in the article by Fang on page 190023.

    Green Polymers toward Nanobiotechnology(I): Synthesis of Glycopolypeptides and Their Analogues
    Zhao Wang, Ana Rute Neves, Filipe Olim, Helena Tomás, Shi Tang, Ruilong Sheng
    General Chemistry. 2019, 5 (3): 190010-190010.   DOI: 10.21127/yaoyigc20190010
    Abstract   PDF (225KB) ( )
    Harnessing natural-based renewable molecular resources to construct functional synthetic green polymers is a promising research frontier at the interface of sustainable/green chemistry, polymer chemistry and nanobiotechnology. As natural glycoprotein mimics/analogues and biocompatible building blocks of nanobio- materials, synthetic functional glycopolypeptides and their structural/functional analogues have attracted great attentions in recent years. This mini-perspective article reviewed current synthetic strategies and methods of glycopolypeptides and their analogues. The pros and cons of the synthesis protocols were discussed, moreover, possible future perspectives in this field were also stated.

    Patterned Self-Assembled Monolayers for Bottom-Up Fabrication of Nanoarchitectures
    Chen Fang
    General Chemistry. 2019, 5 (3): 190023-190023.   DOI: 10.21127/yaoyigc20190023
    Abstract   PDF (346KB) ( )
    Molecular self-assemblies on surfaces and their bottom-up fabrication applications have been key topics in the field of nanotechnology. Impressively complicated self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) with well-defined nanopatterns have been created on surface employing sophisticated organic molecules. Nevertheless, very limited progress has been made toward the ultimate objective, bottom-up fabrication of nanoarchitectures. This perspective aims to summarize recent advances of patterned SAMs, to identify the obstacles, and also to explore promising directions that will facilitate the development and application of SAMs.

    Photocatalytic Reduction of N2 for Ammonia Production
    Xiangchao Meng, Zisheng Zhang
    General Chemistry. 2019, 5 (3): 190006-190006.   DOI: 10.21127/yaoyigc20190006
    Abstract   PDF (141KB) ( )
    Photocatalytic fixation of dinitrogen has become a research hotspot in recent years. Compared with traditional processes for the production of ammonia, photocatalysis exhibited superiorities, such as easy-to-operate, mild operating conditions and low cost. However, the production rate of ammonia from photocatalytic reduction of N2 is pretty low. Also, the selectivity of ammonia is very low as regards the influence of water splitting. Lots of works have been reported with the presence of these hindrances. This is a challenge as well as an opportunity for global researchers. With this perspective in view, a recommendation for future work was included.

    Natural Zeolites as Sustainable and Environmental Inorganic Resources over the History to Present
    Eva Chmielewská
    General Chemistry. 2019, 5 (3): 190001-190001.   DOI: 10.21127/yaoyigc20190001
    Abstract   PDF (776KB) ( )
    Zeolites synthetic as well as natural, based on their beneficial properties and economic value, represent for a long time recognized industrial commodities. Natural zeolites are highly porous, hydrated aluminosilicates with a rigid crystalline structure and a network of interconnected tunnels and cages (such as honeycomb). Total pore volume of some natural zeolites reaches up to 35%. Their structures consist of a three dimensional framework, having a negatively charged lattice. The negative charge is balanced by cations, which are exchangeable with certain cations from aqueous or gaseous media. Based upon these facts and according to a new definition, zeolites are also clathrates or inclusion compounds, able to host various guest substances in their versatile structures and thus enhance their adsorption potential to broaden range of pollutants.
