Absolute Asymmetric Synthesis in Enantioselective Autocatalytic Reaction Networks: Theoretical Games, Speculations on Chemical Evolution and Perhaps a Synthetic Option
Network solutions: The theoretical reports on the destabilization of racemic outcomes and chiral amplifications generated in enantioselective autocatalysis are discussed in relationship to experimental absolute asymmetric synthesis and with regard to speculations on the origin of biological homochirality and chemical evolution on Earth.

Angewandte Chemie 52/2014: Happy Holidays
In the last issue of 2014, J. Zhi et al. review research on diamond nanowires. How can their exceptional properties, such as negative electron affinity, chemical inertness, high elastic modulus, hardness, and thermal conductivity at room temperature by explained and put to use? The Highlights deal with organocatalytic click chemistry (S. S. V. Ramasastry) and asymmetric redox organocatalysis as a new entry to vitamin E (T. Netscher). In an Essay, J. C. del Valle et al. look back on the life of photochemistry pioneer Michael Kasha.
In the Communications section, T. Livinghouse et al. present an intramolecular metalloamination of N,N-dimethylhydrazinoalkenes as a versatile method to access functionalized nitrogen heterocycles (see picture). P. Londero et al. show how to detect organic colorants in historical paintings by means of UV laser ablation surface-enhanced Raman microspectroscopy. K. V. Gothelf et al. report on the synthesis, dynamic combinatorial chemistry, and PCR amplification of disulfide-linked oligonucleotides.
The Angewandte team and Wiley-VCH publishers would like to take this opportunity to thank all authors, readers, referees, and board members for their continued support throughout 2014 and wish them all a happy 2015.
Nanomotors in the Fast Lane
Moving from science fiction to reality: chemically driven micro- and nanomotors
At least since the movie “The Fantastic Voyage” in 1966, in which a submarine is shrunk down and injected into the blood stream of a human, people have been toying with the idea of sending tiny “micromachines” and “nanorobots” into our organs or individual cells to carry out delicate “repairs”. This is now beginning to approach the realm of possibility. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists from Stuttgart present the current state of research in the area of catalytic micro- and nanomotors.
