In this issue, I. Mela et al. review sensing and treatment of wound biofilms. What new approaches to eradication and detection are available? The Minireviews deal with planar chirality in catalysis and structure discovery (R. López, C. Palomo) and receptor mobility in multivalent binding on lipid membranes (D. Morzy, M. Bastings). N. A. Kotov contributes a Highlight on layered biomimetic composites from MXenes with sequential bridging.
In the original research section, M. Bao et al. present a palladium-catalyzed tail-to-tail reductive dimerization of terminal alkynes to 2,3-dibranched butadienes (see picture). G. Yu et al. developed polyzwitterionic hydrogels for efficient atmospheric water harvesting. B. J. Wylie et al. explain how a cholesterol dimer stabilizes the inactivated state of an inward-rectifier potassium channel. O. G. Schmidt et al. describe the interfacial chemistry that triggers ultrafast radiative recombination in metal halide perovskites.
