The Importance of Catalyst Wettability
When just getting wet is not enough: Preparation of highly efficient heterogeneous catalysts is mainly devoted to designing catalytic sites, and the catalyst wettability has been overlooked for a long time. Here, it is shown that the catalyst wettability is also an important factor for improving catalytic activity, product selectivity, and catalyst stability. The catalyst wettability should be considerable for designing and developing novel heterogeneous catalysts in the future. [Concept]

Angewandte Chemie 43/2014: Long-Term Stability
In this issue, S. Rohn et al. review the reactivity of glucosinolates and their breakdown products in foods. How do they affect the quality of food with regard to nutritional value, flavor, and beneficial health effects? In a Minireview, R. J. M. Nolte et al. discuss the advances in processive catalysis that have been made in emulating it through supramolecular chemistry. The Highlights deal with the trifluoromethanide anion (N. Santschi and R. Gilmour) and transition-metal-based 18F fluorination (S. H. Liang and N. Vasdev).
In the Communications section, I. Ivanović-Burmazović et al. describe the effect of confined space around a heme iron center (see picture). J. Ye et al. demonstrate photothermal conversion of CO2 into methane over Group VIII nanocatalysts as an option for solar fuel production. R. Giri et al. succeeded in the copper-catalyzed coupling of triaryl- and trialkylindium reagents with aryl iodides and bromides, and N. W. Mitzel et al. present the solid-state structure of pentafluoroethyllithium, a Li/F carbenoid.
A Matter of Preparation
Reactivity of glucosinolates and their breakdown products in foods
The taste and nutritional value of vegetables including broccoli, radishes, and cabbage are influenced by specific substances, namely glucosinolates (mustard oil glycosides) and their numerous breakdown products. The positive and negative effects of these compounds on human health are also the subjects of fierce debate. As it turns out, the actual substances present depend greatly on the preparation of the vegetables, report German scientists in the journal Angewandte Chemie.
