In this issue, S. Wolf and C. Feldmann review synthesis of inorganic nanoparticles in microemulsions. What non-standard options are there for bimetals, hollow nanospheres, base metals, peroxides, metal nitrides, and more? In a Minireview, X. Wang et al. discuss the use of conjugated polymers for photocatalytic hydrogen evolution. The Highlight deals with metal-cluster-based colloidal excimer superstructures (S. Ren).
In the Communications section, C. M. Thiele et al. uncover key structural features of an enantioselective peptide-catalyzed acylation by means of advanced NMR spectroscopy (see picture). D. Sarlah et al. present an arenophile-mediated dearomative reduction. S. A. Benner et al. identified borate as a multifaceted problem solver in prebiotic chemistry, and B. Wang et al. found a chemical strategy toward gasotransmitter prodrugs that involves an intramolecular Diels–Alder reaction.
