In this week’s Review, D. Klemm et al. discuss nanocelluloses. What applications of these nature-based materials exist in the forms of gels and foams, structured films, and medical implants? The Highlights deal with surface functionalization by strain-promoted click reactions (H. Zuilhof et al.), a non-IPR fullerene that is more stable than its IPR isomer (N. Martín) and hypersensitive response to over-reactive cysteines (H. Overkleeft et al.).
In the Communications section, M. Uesugi et al. present a mitochondrial surface-specific fluorescence probe which is activated by bioconversion within cells. R. L. Webster et al. succeeded in a facile Pd-catalyzed ortho-selective bromination and chlorination of anilides under aerobic conditions at room temperature while an unusual PdI-PdII tetramer is formed. K. Kazimierczuk and V. Yu. Orekhov show how to acquire high-quality multidimensional NMR spectra can be obtained from rapidly recorded non-uniformly sampled data (see picture).
