In this issue, X. Sun et al. review smart electronic textiles. How are the typical functions of such textiles implemented through the design of suitable materials? The Highlight deals with silicon-compatible carbon-based micro-supercapacitors (X. Zhuang and X. Feng). In his Editorial, A. Corma writes on the understanding and application of heterogeneous catalysis.
In the Comunications section, M. A. Galindo et al. report on highly stable DNA that contains silver(I)-mediated base pairs (see picture). M. Nyman et al. discuss the chemistry of amphoteric aqueous hafnium clusters. A. Osuka et al. succeeded in the synthesis of di-peri-dinaphtoporphyrins by PtCl2-mediated cyclization, and A. Eychmüller et al. assembled all-inorganic colloidal nanocrystals into gels and aerogels.
