Targeted Treatment of Cancer with Nanotherapeutics Based on Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles
Nanotherapeutics are designed and constructed from mesoporous silica nanoparticles for the targeted treatment of cancer based on characteristics of tumor tissues. The picture shows drug delivery triggered by the acidic extracellular environment of cancer, endocytosis of the drug carrier, and intracellular release of cargo drugs. [Minireview]

Angewandte Chemie 5/2015: The Power of Chemistry
In this issue, S. Sánchez et al. review chemically powered micro- and nanomotors. What where the major advances in the first ten years of catalytic nanomotors research until now? In a Minireview, U. Meierhenrich et al. discuss molecular chirality in meteorites and interstellar ice, for example on board ESA's Rosetta mission. In her Editorial, Roberta Sessoli looks at the opportunities available for Italian chemical research.
In the Communications section, H. Liu et al. describe extracellular electron transfer from living microbes and its regulation by surface wettability (see picture). E. L. Chaikof et al. present targeted antithrombotic protein micelles, and K. T. Holman et al. squeezed xenon atoms into cryptophane-111 at up to 300 °C in the solid state. L. J. Murray et al. succeeded in dinitrogen activation upon reduction of a triiron(II) complex. J. Jin and D. W. C. MacMillan show how ethers can be directly α-arylated through a combination of photoredox C–H functionalization and the Minisci reaction.

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.
