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 34/2017: Going in Circles

Angewandte Chemie 34/2017: Going in Circles In this issue, which contains articles dedicated to Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann on his 80th birthday, G. Bertrand et al. review recent developments in the field of cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbenes. M. Bickelhaupt and K. N. Houk discuss reaction rates with the distortion/interaction-activation strain model in a further Review. D. J. Tantillo contributes a Minireview on inherent substrate reactivity in enzyme-promoted carbocation cyclization/rearrangements. In Essays, B. Kahr et al. write on the abuse of Rachel Carson and the misuse of DDT science in the context of environmental deregulation, and K. A. Jørgensen et al. wonder why it is so challenging to move from six to ten electrons in cycloaddition reactions.

In the Communications section, A. Ghosh et al. describe the stabilization and structure of the cis tautomer of a free-base porphyrin (see picture). J. R. Long et al. found a trinuclear radical-bridged lanthanide single-molecule magnet, and B. Kahr et al. investigated DDT polymorphism and the lethality of crystal forms.

And finally, N. W. Ashcroft asks what constitutes an atom, and J. I. Seeman paints the picture of R. B. Woodward as a larger-than-life chemistry rock star.

Lightweight Catalyst for Artificial Photosynthesis

Carbonitride aerogels mediate the photocatalytic conversion of water

Lightweight Catalyst for Artificial Photosynthesis - Carbonitride aerogels mediate the photocatalytic conversion of water

Nanochemistry meets macrostructures: Chinese scientists report the synthesis of a macroscopic aerogel from carbonitride nanomaterials which is an excellent catalyst for the water-splitting reaction under visible-light irradiation. The study published in the journal Angewandte Chemie adds new opportunities to the material properties of melamine-derived carbonitrides.
