In this issue’s Editorial, Karsten Danielmeier (President, GDCh) and Peter R. Schreiner (VP, GDCh) point out that chemists have the unique possibility and the duty to contribute to a livable future for all, under the motto of this year’s German Chemical Society Science Forum: “Rethinking Chemistry”.
In a Review, Sandra Contreras et al. discuss research on radical-mediated photocatalysis for lignocellulose biomass conversion into value-added chemicals and hydrogen. Modern strategies for carbon isotope exchange are reviewed by Davide Audisio et al. The Minireviews deal with 1,3-imidazole-based mesoionic carbenes and anionic dicarbenes (Rajendra S. Ghadwal) as well as the stabilization of liquids by interfacial supramolecular assemblies (Thomas P. Russell et al.).
In the original research section, Zhikun Wu et al. present sandwich-kernelled AgCu nanoclusters with golden ratio geometry and promising photothermal efficiency (see picture). Igor O. Koshevoy et al. observed fast and tunable phosphorescence from organic ionic crystals. Timothy J. Donohoe et al. synthesized multisubstituted cyclohexenes through aluminium-promoted 1,5-hydride shifts. Xiao-Ye Wang et al. used nonbenzoid acepleiadylene as a building block for organic semiconductors.
