To celebrate BASF’s special anniversary, this issue offers a collection of Reviews and Essays covering the contributions made by chemistry in the areas of energy, nutrition, and urban living. Among the Essays, BASF Research Executive Director A. Kreimeyer at al. describe how chemistry creates sustainable solutions for a growing world population (see picture), and G. M. Whitesides discusses the future of chemistry.
Among the Minireviews, H. J. Snaith et al. summarize the formation of thin films of organic–inorganic perovskites for high-efficiency solar cells, and M. J. Krische et al. discuss C1 feedstocks in metal-catalyzed C–C couplings of unsaturated reactants.
The Reviews include contributions by J.-M. Lehn, who writes about adaptive chemistry and materials, and M. X. Hu et al., who shed new light on synthetic membranes for water purification.
