Helmut Schwarz and Edward Valeev win 2015 WATOC Awards
The World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (WATOC) has awarded the 2015 Schrödinger Medal to Helmut Schwarz of the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin, Germany) and the 2015 Dirac Medal to Edward Valeev of Virginia Tech (USA). The awards will be presented to the two scientists at the next triennial WATOC congress, which will take place in Munich, Germany, in August 2017.

Kinetic control: Fluorogen activation by fluorogen-activating peptides can be kinetically controlled to impart photostability to the fluoromodules. Noncovalent fluorogenic complexes can be photostabilized by encapsulation of the fluorogen for fluoromodules with a slow off-rate or by exchange for fluoromodules with a fast off-rate.

Getting radicals to talk: A novel triradical compound is synthesized and characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 31P NMR, EPR spectroscopy and MALDI-TOF spectrometry, and its chemical structure is confirmed by X-ray diffraction. Intermolecular, but not intramolecular, radical–radical interactions are detected, and appear at concentrations greater than 5×10−3 M, and look to be antiferromagnetic.

Mix some bricks: A facile solution synthesis of a series of polyhedral Fe3O4 NPs with the sizes between 20 and 200 nm is achieved simply by the amount of cetylpyridinium chloride. The shape-dependent magnetic properties of these Fe3O4 NPs are discussed.
