Ruthenium-Catalyzed Metathesis of Conjugated Polyenes
Metathesize it up: An understanding of the mechanism of the interconversion of ruthenium N-heterocyclic carbene η1–η3-allyl complexes may open the way for the development of a new generation of ruthenium-based latent metathesis catalyst systems. This review summarizes the most relevant pioneering work focused on conjugated polyene metathesis to lead to new ideas for the development of forthcoming metathesis catalysts in different applications.

Angewandte Chemie 32/2016: Beyond Nuclear
In this issue, M. Jia and S. Ma review approaches to the syntheses of metal carbenes. How can they be achieved without intermediate diazo compounds? The Highlight deals with the prediction of rate constants in catalysis (R. A. Catlow). In his Editorial, C. Walther shows what nuclear and radiochemistry have to offer beyond nuclear power.
In the Communications section, H.-C. Xu et al. describe a method of electrochemical functionalization for the synthesis of (aza)indoles (see picture), and C. Li et al. present a natural–artifical photosynthetic hybrid. P. R. Schreiner et al. found a hydrocarbon with a large dipole moment, which may enable molecular electronics, and M. D. Guiver et al. created a montmorillonite mixed-matrix membrane for CO2 separation.
Rusty Steel Triggers Oxygen Evolution
Corroded stainless steel plate makes up an efficient water splitting electrode
Electrocatalytic water splitting is one of the most promising next generation technologies for environmentally friendly and inexpensive energy conversion and storage. However, one of its biggest obstacles is the sluggishness of the oxidation reaction, which is key to the whole process. State-of-the-art technology relies on metal oxide electrocatalysts, but both cost and performance still need to be improved. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Chinese scientists have now introduced oxidized, that is, rusty, stainless-steel plates as excellent electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution. That technology could represent a surprisingly simple approach toward solving a long-standing problem.
