High-Performance Polymers from Nature: Catalytic Routes and Processes for Industry
I love it when a plant comes together: A complete understanding of the transformation of plant oil into α,ω-functionalized monomers is key to its development as an industrial process. Besides economical and ecological perspectives, there are other important factors to consider, such as a reduction in CO2 emission and waste by the complete molecular utilization of the feedstock. This Concept advocates the drop-in strategy, and is guided by the example of catalytically synthesized α,ω-functionalized polymerizable monomers. [Concept]

Angewandte Chemie 35/2014: Inspiration and Automation
In this issue, S. O. Krabbenborg and J. Huskens review the electrochemical generation of gradients. What benefits does this method offer with respect to the generation of dynamic solution and surface gradients, the integration of electronics, and compatibility with automation? In a Minireview, M. J. Krische et al. discuss catalytic enantioselective C–H functionalization of alcohols by redox-triggered carbonyl addition. The Highlight deals with thermoelectric tin selenide (H. Zhang and D. V. Talapin). In an Essay, K. C. Nicolaou inspires new drug development processes.
In the Communications section, U. Rieder and N. W. Luedtke use an inverse electron demand Diels–Alder reaction to enable time-resolved, multicolor labeling of DNA synthesis in individual cells (see picture). J. Šebestík and P. Bouř observed the paramagnetic Raman optical activity of nitrogen dioxide. R. Kinjo et al. report on the isolation of a bis(oxazol-2-ylidene)–phenylborylene adduct and its reactivity as a boron-centered nucleophile. P. J. Chirik et al. present photochemical reductive elimination as a route to a zirconocene complex with a strongly activated N2 ligand.

Reprogramed nonribosomal peptide synthetase incorporates amino acids with reactive sites for “click” chemistry
A single targeted mutation is enough to alter a natural peptide system so that it also incorporates non-natural amino acids into peptides, report Swiss scientists in the journal Angewandte Chemie. The mutation increases the size of the binding cavity in one domain of the system, which changes the substrate specificity. The researchers are thus able to incorporate amino acids with a specific reactive group that can later be used to easily modify the peptide.
