Modification of Nucleic Acids by Azobenzene Derivatives and Their Applications in Biotechnology and Nanotechnology
Only light can do that: By using trans-cis photoisomerization, DNA duplex formation and dissociation could be photoregulated simply by light irradiation. Based on this basic idea, further improvements of azobenzene-modified nucleic acids and their applications were developed. By combining functional groups with biomolecules, novel nanomaterials can be developed and may contribute greatly to DNA nanotechnology. [Focus Review]

Angewandte Chemie 48/2014: Unexpected Synergy
This week, D. P. Fairlie et al. review how to constrain cyclic peptides to mimic protein structure motifs. How does this lead to protease-resistant, potent and target-selective, biologically active compounds? In a Minireview, H. Mutlu and J.-F. Lutz discuss the sequencing of natural and synthetic macromolecules. The Highlights deal with the iron-catalyzed hydrogenation of esters to alcohols (J.-L. Renaud et al.) and protein crystallography with free-electron lasers (H. Ogata and W. Lubitz).
In the Communications section, T.-B. Lu et al. describe homogeneous electrocatalytic water oxidation at neutral pH by a nickel(II) complex (see picture). T. Taniguchi and D. P. Curran succeeded in the hydroboration of arynes with N-heterocyclic carbene boranes. B. P. T. Fokwa et al. found an unexpected synergy between magnetic iron chains and stacked B6 rings in a new ferromagnetic material. G. Gescheidt et al. investigated radicals from green-tea polyphenols and highly reactive oxygen species by time-resolved EPR spectroscopy.
Entering the Nano Era
From basic research to fad: nanomaterials are on the rise in our day-to-day lives
Modern hard drives only require an area of a few square nanometers for each bit of information. To protect ourselves from sunburn we use sunscreens that contain nanoparticles of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. Is this the beginning of the nano era? Younan Xia (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA) pursues this question in his editorial in the most recent edition of the journal Angewandte Chemie, which is dedicated to the topic of nanoscience (free to access until the end of 2014).
