In this issue, G. Mugesh et al. review the chemistry and biology in the biosynthesis and action of thyroid hormones. How can thyroid-related disorders be treated? In a second Review, K. Ray et al. discuss recent advances in the area of biomimetic high-valent metal–oxo complexes. In a Minireview, K. Kumar et al. summarize scaffold diversity syntheses and their applications in probe and drug discovery. The Highlight deals with cyclopentadiene-based Brønsted acids in chiral catalyst design (I. Fleischer). In her Editorial, GDCh President Thisbe Lindhorst reflects on the international nature and societal responsibility of science, and places the focus on chemical research in India, on the occasion of an upcoming Angewandte Symposium that will take place in India.

In the Communications section, M. Lackinger et al. report post-synthetic decoupling of covalent nanostructures from the Ag(111) surfaces on which they were synthesized (see picture). D. Maiti et al. describe the palladium-catalyzed directed para C–H functionalization of phenols, and K. M. Sureshan et al. present a sugar-based gelator for marine oil-spill recovery.
