Abstracts now required for Communications
To improve the discoverability of Communications, we ask authors to supply an abstract as the first paragraph from now on. In this abstract, the motivation for the work, the methods applied, the results, and the conclusions drawn should be presented (maximum 1000 characters).
“My biggest motivation is the best is yet to come! If I were not a scientist, I would be a writer or actor—or maybe a bishop ...” This and more about Nazario Martín can be found on page 7116.

Synthesis of Heterocycles through Transition-Metal-Catalyzed Isomerization Reactions
A sea of opportunities! Transition-metal-catalyzed isomerization of N- and O-allylic compounds provides a mild, selective and synthetically versatile method to form iminium and oxocarbenium ions. Given the number of reactions involving these highly electrophilic intermediates, this concept provides a sea of opportunities for heterocycle synthesis, (see scheme; Nu=nucleophile). [Concept]

Angewandte Chemie 28/2014: The Sweet Smell of Success
In this issue, T. Hofmann et al. review the chemistry of smell. What are nature's chemical signatures in human olfaction and what are the perspectives for future food biotechnology? The Highlight deals with electrosynthetic methods for complex molecular syntheses (S. R. Waldvogel and B. Janza).
In the Communications section, M. Akita et al. present a facile synthesis of α-trifluoromethylated ketones from aromatic alkenes by means of photoredox catalysis (see picture). B. Liu et al. used a polyelectrolyte-based polyprodrug for photodynamic and chemotherapy with on-demand drug release. S. Zacchini et al. describe a hydride migration from a triangular face to a tetrahedral cavity in tetranuclear iron carbonyl clusters.
Cholera: Fighting Fire with Fire
Binding at five sites: effective cholera inhibitor based on cholera toxins
Cholera against cholera: a novel inhibitor prevents the cholera toxin from binding to carbohydrates found on the surface of intestinal cells. An international team of researchers has described their elegant concept in the journal Angewandte Chemie: The protein scaffold of the inhibitor is based on an inactive cholera toxin. It is equipped with five sugar moieties to act as ligands. The inhibitor’s size and number of binding sites are both perfectly matched to the cholera toxin bearing five binding sites.
