Antivitamins B12—A Structure- and Reactivity-Based Concept
â€²B12â€Dummiesâ€² have a structure similar to vitamin B12 but cannot assume the metabolic role of the essential vitamin. In this Concept article novel strategies for the design and synthesis of such â€²antivitamins B12â€² are described. Studies of their effects are suggested to be helpful for elucidating the molecular mechanisms of still puzzling pathophysiological effects of B12â€deficiency. [Concept]

Angewandte Chemie 31/2015: Strategies and Methods
This week, T. N. Grossmann et al. review the design of protein interaction inhibitors. What strategies are available to yield peptidomimetics? The Highlight deals with the reverse installation of alkynes with the EBX reagent (J. Kaschel and D. B. Werz). In her Essay, C. M. Filloux discusses the influence of language on studies about the anomeric effect.
In the Communications section, S. H. Mushrif et al. report on formyl C–H bond activation by surface lattice oxygen of CuO nanoleaves (see picture). A. Yamada et al. reveal that the superstructure in the metastable intermediate-phase Li2/3FePO4 accelerates the cathode reaction in lithium ion batteries. J. Clayden et al. succeeded in the pseudoephedrine-directed asymmetric α-arylation of α-amino acid derivatives, and O. K. Farha et al. devised a method for the selective photooxidation of a mustard-gas simulant.
Making Polymers from a Greenhouse Gas
Versatile nanostructures made from CO2 based polycarbonates
A future where power plants feed their carbon dioxide directly into an adjacent production facility instead of spewing it up a chimney and into the atmosphere is definitely possible, because CO2 isn’t just an undesirable greenhouse gas; it is also a good source of carbon for processes like polymer production. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, American scientists have now introduced a two-step, one-pot conversion of CO2 and epoxides to polycarbonate block copolymers that contain both water-soluble and hydrophobic regions and can aggregate into nanoparticles or micelles.
