Celebrating Canadian Chemistry

“… This issue of Angewandte Chemie commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Society for Chemistry. It contains contributions from Canadian and German chemists covering a broad and diverse array of subject areas. We are proud to reflect on the accomplishments of the Canadian chemical community and are excited about what the future holds …”

George Olah and Robert Grubbs have shaped chemistry each in their own way. We dedicate a virtual issue to the memory of the former and in celebration of the 75th birthday of the latter.

See all virtual issues.

The Angewandte team is proud to have published the first articles in the "accepted article" format: as-submitted, without translation, copy-editing, language polishing, or typesetting. These tasks will be carried out shortly and the article, in its "version of record", be moved to "EarlyView" before inclusion in an issue. In the meantime, the paper can already be studied, discussed, and even cited (by its DOI). At the moment, this procedure is reserved to reviews only.

If you are looking for the list of upcoming articles that used to be found under "Accepted Articles", please see "Articles Coming Soon".

Angewandte Chemie 19/2017: Structural Changes

Angewandte Chemie 19/2017: Structural ChangesIn this issue, J. Hofkens et al. review methyltransferase-directed labeling of biomolecules and its applications. What efforts have been made toward the development of AdoMet analogues with the aim of transferring moieties other than simple methyl groups? In a Minireview, P. J. Chirik summarizes carbon–carbon bond formation in weak ligand fields, especially the use of open-shell transition-metal cataysts. E. J. M. Hensen et al. and B. F. Chmelka et al. correspond on layered silicates and zeolitic nanosheets vs. non-topotactic transformation of silicate nanolayers into mesostructured zeolite frameworks during crystallization.

In the Communications section, H. A. Lashuel et al. describe how mutant exon 1 huntingtin aggregation is regulated by structural changes and crosstalk (see picture). J. Zhu et al. developed an oxadiazolone strategy for rhodium(III)-catalyzed synthesis of primary pyridinyl amines, and S. Wang et al. found that conjugated polymer nanoparticles augment the photosynthesis of chloroplasts.

Mushrooms Get Defensive

One single enzyme induces the chemical defense of a mushroom against larvae

Mushrooms Get Defensive - One single enzyme induces the chemical defense of a mushroom against larvae

Some mushrooms produce long-chain unsaturated carboxylic acids as their chemical defense against insect larvae. The biosynthesis of these polyenes relies on only one enzyme, as German scientists have now discovered. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, they report the unprecedented multiple double-bond-shifting activity by the enzyme, which is representative of a yet uncharacterized phylogenetic clade of polyketide synthases.
