Three-Dimensional Electrocatalysts for Sustainable Water Splitting Reactions
Three-dimensional (3D) electrocatalysts have captured much attention in the field of water splitting due to their unique properties of high surface area and good mechanical strength. This review presents the general synthesis method and the electrocatalytic performances of different kinds of 3D catalysts in the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and the oxygen evolution reaction (OER).

Angewandte Chemie 7/2016: Beneath the Surface
In this issue, J. G. C. Veinot et al. review the synthesis, surface engineering, and applications of silicon nanocrystals and silicon–polymer hybrids. How did silicon enter the field of quantum dots? In a Minireview, S. Wang and X. Wang summarize recent work on imidazolate building blocks for CO2 capture and photochemical reduction. The Highlight deals with a chiral metal photocatalyst's architecture (A. G. Amador and T. P. Yoon).
In the Communications section, R. Antoine et al. report on the mass determination of entire amyloid fibrils by using mass spectrometry (see picture). B. G. Davis et al. describe an optimal synthetic glycosylation of a therapeutic antibody. L. Gan et al. show how selective multiamination of C70 leads to curved π systems, and P. J. Walsh et al. succeeded in palladium-catalyzed asymmetric allylic alkylations with toluene pronucleophiles.

Block copolymer hydrogels as multifunctional effective cryoprotecting agents for red blood cells
Freezing of medical tissue and cells usually requires the addition of cryopreservatives, although the added compounds can have undesired effects in subsequent applications. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, British scientists report on the synthesis of a block copolymer hydrogel, which not only facilitates the cryoprotection of red blood cells, but also serves as a suitable matrix for further tissue engineering. This points to an attractive one-pot solution for whole blood cryopreservation and tissue-engineering applications.
