Angewandte Chemie 27/2013: New Guidance

Author: Angewandte Chemie International Edition

In this issue, P. Vöhringer et al. review low-dimensional model systems for vibrational spectroscopy of associated liquids, such as water. What information about the structure and dynamics does two-dimensional infrared femtosecond spectroscopy reveal? In an Essay, B. Han et al. discuss green carbon science. The Highlight deals with the enantioselective hydrogenation of isoquinolines (D. Zhao and F. Glorius).

In the Communications section, S. Shima et al. report on the mechanism of [Fe]-hydrogenase inhibition by isocyanides on the basis of X-ray absorption spectroscopy (see picture). L. Cronin et al. succeeded in the synthesis of non-mixed-valent reduced polyoxometalates {W18O56XO6} (X=IVII or TeVI), which have potential as a new type of electron-transfer reagent. D. Maiti et al. describe an oxidative trifluoromethylation of non-activated olefins. B. Rieger et al. present flexibly tethered dinuclear zinc complexes as a structurally new catalyst for the copolymerization of CO2 and epoxides.
