Article describes a study of the drug Meloxicam in N-methyl-pyrrolidone (NMP)–aqueous mixtures at several temperatures to expand the solubility database about pharmaceutical compounds in aqueous–mixed solvents. Meloxicam is preferentially hydrated in water-rich mixtures but preferentially solvated by NMP in the composition interval of 0.16 < x1 < 1.00.

Article reports a new strategy for efficient extraction of uranium from seawater via converging the cooperative functions of adsorption–photocatalysis into the nanospace of covalent organic frameworks (COFs). This study establishes multicomponent COFs as promising candidates for efficient uranium extraction from seawater.
Article presenting results from a study where a new gold(I)-vinylimidazolate CTC, 1, was prepared and the formation of highly emissive sandwich adducts with the soft metal cations Cu+, Ag+, and Tl+, 2–4, respectively, was investigated.

This article creates a well-defined architecture for functional materials composed of spontaneously self-assembled electron donor and acceptor entities capable of generating long-lived charge-separated states upon photoillumination and reports the synthesis of a new fullerene–bis-Zn-porphyrin e-bisadduct by tether-directed functionalization of C60 via a multistep synthetic protocol.

This article examines experimental heats of formation and enthalpies obtained from G4 calculations to find that the resonance stabilization of the two unpaired electrons in triplet O₂, relative to the unpaired electrons in two hydroxyl radicals, amounts to 100 kcal/mol.
This article proposes new criteria, namely T₁ ≥ 0.045, D₁ ≥ 0.120, and %TAE ≥ 10%, as a gauge for 4d transition metal-containing molecules to predic the possible need to employ multireference (MR) wave function-based methods to describe energetic and spectroscopic properties.
