Chloride-mediated selective electrosynthesis of ethylene and propylene oxides at high current density
Chemicals manufacturing consumes large amounts of energy and is responsible for a substantial portion of global carbon emissions. Electrochemical systems that produce the desired compounds by using renewable electricity offer a route to lower carbon emissions in the chemicals sector. Ethylene oxide is among the world’s most abundantly produced commodity chemicals because of its importance in the plastics industry, notably for manufacturing polyesters and polyethylene terephthalates. We applied an extended heterogeneous:homogeneous interface, using chloride as a redox mediator at the anode, to facilitate the selective...

Hidden Cause of Cancer?
When you’re tearing off a sheet of aluminum foil to cook with — or wrap your leftovers before you put them in the fridge — you probably never consider aluminum is a dangerous toxin. Truth is, aluminum is a heavy metal… just like lead, mercury and arsenic. It’s in our food… our cookware… even in the water we drink. Exposure to aluminum is a risk factor for cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and bone disease, just to name a few. Our lungs, liver, and kidneys are able to eliminate a majority of the small amounts of aluminum we ingest through eating, drinking or breath...

Ion transport and regulation in a synaptic vesicle glutamate transporter
We report the cryo–electron microscopy structure of rat VGLUT2 at 3.8-angstrom resolution and propose structure-based mechanisms for substrate recognition and allosteric activation by low pH and chloride. A potential permeation pathway for chloride intersects with the glutamate binding site. These results demonstrate how the activity of VGLUTs can be coordinated with large shifts in proton and chloride concentrations during the synaptic vesicle cycle to ensure normal synaptic transmission.

(Forschungsverbund Berlin) VRAC/LRRC8 chloride channels do not only play a decisive role in the transport of cytostatics, amino acids and neurotransmitters. They can also transport the important messenger substance cGAMP from cell to cell and thus strengthen the immune response to infections with DNA viruses. Since cGAMP is always formed when cells detect DNA outside their nucleus, the discovery is potentially of great importance also for other pathologies such as cancer. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Researchers Find Salt Could Be Used To Treat Cancer
BOSTON (CBS) — There may be a new weapon to attack cancer cells with less harm to the patient, and it you can probably find it right on your kitchen table. It’s salt, which is also called sodium chloride. Researchers at the University of Georgia used sodium chloride nano-particles as a so-called “Trojan Horse” to deliver cancer-killing sodium and chloride ions into cancer cells. But they say the treatment isn’t toxic because when the nano-particles degrade, they just turn into salt. In fact, when they injected these salt nano-particles into tumors in mice, the sodium chloride nano-particles su...

Chloride capture using a C-H hydrogen-bonding cage
Tight binding and high selectivity are hallmarks of biomolecular recognition. Achieving these behaviors with synthetic receptors has usually been associated with OH and NH hydrogen bonding. Contrary to this conventional wisdom, we designed a chloride-selective receptor in the form of a cryptand-like cage using only CH hydrogen bonding. Crystallography showed chloride stabilized by six short 2.7-angstrom hydrogen bonds originating from the cage’s six 1,2,3-triazoles. Attomolar affinity (1017 M–1) was determined using liquid-liquid extractions of chloride from water into nonpolar dichloromethane solvents. Control...
