"Women in Chemistry” is among the themes of the International Year of Chemistry, so the Editors have assembled an issue in which all the articles are contributed by female corresponding authors. Men do feature as co-authors of course.

In this issue’s Review, Greta R. Patzke et al. discuss the synthesis, mechanisms, and technology innovations of oxide nanomaterials. Which in situ techniques are the most useful here? In a Minireview, Katie L. Csiesienski and Katherine J. Franz search for the keys to unlock photolabile metal-containing cages. The Highlights deal with the activation of platinum anticancer complexes with light (Susan J. Berners-Price), luminescent semiconductors (Claudia Wickleder), and olefin hydroformylation with scaffolding ligands (Charles S. Yeung and Vy M. Dong).

In the Communications section, Polly L. Arnold et al. describe the one-electron reduction of a uranyl complex by a lanthanum cation. Cristina Nevado and Teresa de Haro present gold-catalyzed stereocontrolled cyclopenta- and cycloheptaannulation cascades, which were used in the total syntheses of sesquiterpenoids frondosin A and B. Yanqiang Zhang und Jean'ne M. Shreeve show that ionic liquids based on dicyanoborates are promising hypergolic fuels. Fangqiong Tang et al. succeeded in the production of a platform for the combined photothermal and chemotherapy with low systemic toxicity from gold nanoshells on silica nanorattles.
