In their Communication on page 9258 ff., P. Sozzani et al. take advantage of the nanochannels within dipeptide crystals for stereoselective polymerization triggered by gamma rays. These crystalline nanomolds are easily removed by dissolution in aqueous solution leaving pure, uniform polymers.
E. Reisner and co-workers describe in their Communication on page 9381 ff. how a cobalt catalyst that evolves H2 electro- and photocatalytically under the highly demanding conditions of pH-neutral water and atmospheric O2.
In their Communication on page 9272 ff., F. Porta, D. Prosperi et al. describe the use of a small variant of protein A as a biotemplate for a one-step synthesis and biofunctionalization of gold nanoparticles.
