Natural Product Reports

A great number of structurally diverse natural products containing five-membered heterocyclic subunits, such as imidazole, oxazole, thiazole, and their saturated congeners, are abundant in nature. These naturally occurring metabolites often exhibit extensive and pharmacologically important biological activities. The latest progress in the isolation, biological activities, chemical synthetic studies, and biosynthetic pathways on these natural products is summarized in this review. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

A method for remediating soil which is contaminated by an individual or a mixture of Cd and Pb with a hyperaccumulator

This invention provides molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles compatible with biological samples, and in particular pure biological samples and a preparation method thereof. Said molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles have a crosslinking degree exceeding 50%, a particle diameter of 10 to 500 nm, hydrophilic polymer brushes on its surfaces and can be prepared by introducing appropriate hydrophilic macromolecular chain transfer agents into reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) precipitation polymerization systems through the one-pot synthesis. The preparation method is simple, features a broad range of application and yields a pure product. The obtained hydrophilic molecularly imprinted polymer nanoparticles have prospects for a wide range of application in biological sample analysis, medical clinical immune analysis, food and environmental monitoring, biomimetic sensors, etc.

Calixarenes are one kind of phenol-formaldehyde cyclic oligomers, discovered from the Bakelite process. Their intrinsic characteristics, including the unique structural scaffold, facile modification and adjustable inclusion property, show pronounced potential for supramolecular polymerization. In this tutorial review, we summarize the current stage of fabrication of calixarene-based supramolecular polymers. Three types of calixarene-based supramolecular polymers are, respectively, illustrated according to the different activities of calixarenes: (1) calixarene-based supramolecular polycaps, (2) supramolecular polymers with polymeric calixarene scaffolds where the cavities remain unexploited; (3) supramolecular polymers formed by the host-guest interactions offered by calixarene cavities. Furthermore, the stimuli-responsiveness and functions of calixarene-based supramolecular polymers are illustrated, which endow them with a broad range of potential applications as smart, self-healing materials and delivery carriers.
