Angewandte Chemie 10/2013: Celebrate with Us!

Author: Angewandte Chemie International Edition

The Anniversary Symposium issue of course contains the program of the symposium (broadcast live on the internet through ChemistryViews; speakers’ names are marked with an asterisk below) and Reviews by F. Diederich about chemistry as seen through the eyes of the journal, and by H. Waldmann about target identification of small bioactive molecules. Further Reviews include A. Fürstner* on alkyne metathesis, W. F. van Gunsteren on biomolecular simulations, J.-M. Lehn* about steps towards complex matter, and M. Beller on metals for homogenously catalyzed hydroformylations. Minireviews were contributed by K. Kim et al. on proton conductivity in metal−organic frameworks and by G. Desiraju et al. on nanoindentation in crystal engineering.

The Highlights deal with on-chip protein biosynthesis (C. Timm and C. M. Niemeyer) and benzyne (R. W. Hoffmann and K. Suzuki). The Essays section offers the views of M. T. Reetz on mutational effects in protein engineering, E. Keinan on the perspectives of humankind and chemists in particular while both human population and knowledge grow strongly, R. Schlögl* et al. on the emission of highly activated soot from Diesel engines, C. Bai and M. Liu on chemistry and nanoscience, and of H. Wild et al. on collaborative innovation in drug discovery. In an Editorial, P. Schwille writes on synthetic biology and interdisciplinarity. In a trialogue, S. Shaik, H. S. Rzepa, and R. Hoffmann* debate the bond in the seemingly simple C2 molecule.

In the Communications section, A. J. Heeger et al. show how electron-transport layers of transferable graphene oxide inserted by using a stamping nanotechnology (see picture) result in solar cells with enhanced power conversion efficiency. G. Whitesides* et al. succeded in powering a soft robot with explosions. A. H. Zewail* et al. investigated the relaxation of water molecules on CdSe surfaces by means of ultrafast scanning electron microscopy. E. W. Meijer* et al. describe a new class of functional polymer enzyme mimics that are active only in a folded state.
