Angewandte Chemie 38/2014: Nobel Chemistry

Author: Angewandte Chemie International Edition

This issue contains the lectures by the 2013 Chemistry Nobel laureates Martin Karplus (multiscale models for complex chemical systems), Michael Levitt (multiscale modeling for macromolecular systems), and Arieh Warshel (multiscale modeling of biological functions in enzymes and molecular machines). All three are free to read until the end of 2014.

In the Communications section, L. Cronin et al. explore the symmetry, structure, and self-assembly mechanism of a gigantic seven-fold symmetric {Pd84} wheel (see picture). M. Beller et al. succeeded in palladium-catalyzed carbonylations of aryl bromides by using paraformaldehyde to synthesize aldehydes and esters. Q. Guo et al. explain an easy way to prepare monolithic inorganic oxide aerogels, and B. Jache and P. Adelhelm look into the use of graphite as a highly reversible electrode for sodium ion batteries.
