Abstracts now required for Communications
To improve the discoverability of Communications, we ask authors to supply an abstract as the first paragraph from now on. In this abstract, the motivation for the work, the methods applied, the results, and the conclusions drawn should be presented (maximum 1000 characters).
“My favorite composer is Richard Wagner. I really enjoy the orchestrations in his operas. If I could be any age I would be my current age. I always feel that we are doing our best work at the present time ...” This and more about James A. Dumesic can be found on page 3172.

Nanotechnology-Based Strategies for the Detection and Quantification of MicroRNA
It's a small world after all: The development of accurate, sensitive, and reproducible assays for microRNA quantification may greatly benefit from materials and methods in the nanotechnology toolbox (see figure). This review gives a detailed account of what has so far been reached in the field with particular focus on the design and sensitivity of the different approaches and on their application to samples of biological origin.

Angewandte Chemie 11/2015: 150 Years of BASF
To celebrate BASF's special anniversary, this issue offers a collection of Reviews and Essays covering the contributions made by chemistry in the areas of energy, nutrition, and urban living. Among the Essays, BASF Research Executive Director A. Kreimeyer at al. describe how chemistry creates sustainable solutions for a growing world population (see picture), and G. M. Whitesides discusses the future of chemistry.
Among the Minireviews, H. J. Snaith et al. summarize the formation of thin films of organic–inorganic perovskites for high-efficiency solar cells, and M. J. Krische et al. discuss C1 feedstocks in metal-catalyzed C–C couplings of unsaturated reactants.

Swelling of a layered clay mineral leads to encapsulation of functional hydrophobic organic molecules
Many applications demand the presence of functional organic molecules in environments where they are not stable or even not soluble. A possible way to protect the molecules is encapsulation in materials that provide solubility but do not impair the functionality. In this context, the teams led by Josef Breu, Stephan Förster, Hartmut Yersin, and Geoffrey A. Ozin at the Universities of Bayreuth, Regensburg, and Toronto have produced nanometer-sized double stacks of a transparent silicate material having a central layer of oriented hydrophobic fluorescent dye molecules. The nanoplatelets are well dispersed in aqueous solution, and can be cast into dry films that feature almost perfect texture and are optically anisotropic.
