Chemistry Has a Commitment to Life

“… Science that only serves its own interests, that looks away when things get uncomfortable, or that surveys favored territories rather than boldly and curiously breaking new ground will endanger society's trust in the scientific search for truth. This is not a good perspective for a learned society. As a community with responsibilities and values, the GDCh must cultivate a culture that has the well-being of the entire population and the planet in mind …” Read more in the Editorial by Thisbe K.

Angewandte Chemie 35/2017: A Challenging Target

Angewandte Chemie 35/2017: A Challenging TargetIn this issue, A. T. Plowright et al. review new modalities for challenging targets in drug discovery. How is progress in this area leading to a range of novel drug candidates? In a Minireview, M. Soleilhavoup and G. Bertrand discuss borylenes: organoboron as mimics for carbenes and amines. The Highlight deals with “super-reducing” photocatalysis with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (M. Brasholz), and in the Guest Editorial, H. Schwalbe writes on the importance of high-resolution NMR spectrometers.

In the Communications section, Y. Watanabe et al. describe the direct hydroxylation of benzene to phenol by cytochrome P450BM3 (see picture). Y. Xia et al. succeeded in the reconstitution of low-density lipoproteins with fatty acids for drug delivery. J. L. Vicario et al. found enantioselective oxidative (4+3) cycloadditions between allenamides and furans to occur through bifunctional hydrogen-bonding/ion-pairing interactions.

Virus with an Eggshell

Mineral layer around avian flu pathogen may be the cause for human infections

Virus with an Eggshell - Mineral layer around avian flu pathogen may be the cause for human infections

Avian flu can be transmitted from birds to humans; transmission among humans, however, is limited. The reason may be an eggshell-like mineral layer that the virus acquires due to the high calcium concentration in the intestines of birds. As reported by Chinese researchers in the journal Angewandte Chemie, these mineralized viruses are significantly more infectious and, in addition, more robust and heat stable than the native viruses.
