In the last issue of 2016, L. J. Smith et al. review how to derive structural information from experimental data on biomolecules. What are the effects of the various assumptions and approximations involved in the process, and how can they be overcome? In Minireviews, M. Hantsche and P. Cramer discuss the structural basis of transcription, and B. Sautier et al. provide a medicinal chemistry perspective on the latest advances towards Ras inhibition. The Highlight deals with G-protein-coupled receptors signaling (A. Link and C. E. Müller). In an Essay, D. S. Tawfik et al. follow in the footsteps of Margaret Dayhoff and her hypothesis on the origin of proteins.
In the Communications section, R. G. Rau-Crespo et al. use mixed linkers within zeolitic imidazolate frameworks to find a route for tuning their electronic gaps and band edge positions (see picture). T. Zhang et al. found rhodium single-atom catalysts supported on ZnO nanowires to display olefin hydroformylation efficiency comparable to that of homogeneous Wilkinson’s catalyst. J. H. ter Horst et al. succeeded in solid separation from a mixed suspension through electric-field-enhanced crystallization.
