Angewandte Chemie 18/2017: Reaching for the Stars

Author: Angewandte Chemie International Edition

In this issue, J. P. Maier and E. K. Campbell review the role of fullerenes in space. How has their presence been confirmed and what does that mean for a long-standing astronomical puzzle? The Highlight deals with the tight embrace in a molecular knot with eight crossings (F. B. L. Cougnon).

In the Communications section, A. Lützen et al. present an octanuclear metallosupramolecular cage designed to exhibit spin-crossover behavior (see picture). P. W. Roesky et al. describe an approach towards recyclable homogeneous catalysts through platinum-crosslinked single-chain nanoparticles. K. Wu et al. succeeded in steering on-surface reactions by a self-assembly approach, and J.-Q. Yu et al. achieved ligand-promoted meta-C–H functionalization of benzylamines.
