Angewandte Chemie 27/2015: Nobels, Let There Be Light!

Author: Angewandte Chemie International Edition

In this issue, the recent Nobel Laureates in Physics Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, and Shuji Nakamura discuss how their work evolved to result in the development of blue light-emitting diodes.

In the Communications section, J. Caro et al. present an inverted fuel cell, which can separate hydrogen from exhaust gases of different compositions at room temperature (see picture). H.-F. Bettinger et al. report on the synthesis of 1,2-azaborines, and S.-Y. Liu et al. describe their Diels–Alder reactions. R. McDonald et al. succeeded in the reductive catenation of phosphine antimony complexes to prepare bicyclic chair-configured antimony cations. G. Travé et al. target two oncogenic functional sites of an oncoprotein with a high-affinity bivalent ligand.
