What is the significance of this compound?
a) It was one of the natural products screened in the drug-development program at Bayer that resulted in the discovery of Aspirin.
b) It is a natural product prized in the fragrance industry for its warm balsamic-woody aroma.
c) It is one of the phenylpropenoids found in nutmeg thought to be responsible for its psychoactive properties.
“I chose chemistry as a career because it is so beautiful and yet still mysterious. I decided to be a chemist when I was 10 years old and I have never to this day regretted that rather early decision. I would not want to use whatever luck I might have for the lottery but rather would like to use it for my work in chemistry ...” This and more about Hisashi Yamamoto can be found on page 5678.

Iminium Ions as Dienophiles in Aza-Diels–Alder Reactions: A Closer Look
I'm in ()ium: A review of the origins, modern developments, mechanistic studies and synthetic applications of the iminium variant of the aza-Diels–Alder (iADA) reaction is presented, and the inter- and intramolecular versions of the iADA reactions that are conducted in aqueous solutions to generate the reactive dienophile in situ are discussed (see scheme).

Angewandte's list of most cited articles has been updated. The new list covers articles published in 2010/11 and was generated from Thomson–Reuters Web of Knowledge. There are separate lists for Communications and all article types. Interestingly, there seems to be little overlap between highly cited and highly downloaded articles.
Catalyst Keeps Fruit Fresh Longer
Even at low temperatures, platinum nanoparticles on a support catalyze breakdown of ethylene
Ripening fruit, vegetables, and flowers release ethylene, which works as a plant hormone. Ethylene accelerates ripening, so other unripened fruit also begins to ripen—fruit and vegetables quickly spoil and flowers wilt. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Japanese researchers have now introduced a new catalytic system for the fast and complete degradation of ethylene. This system could keep the air in warehouses ethylene-free, keeping perishable products fresh longer.
