N-Heterocyclic Carbene Catalysis as a Tool for Gaining Access to the 3,4-Dihydropyran-2-one Skeleton
Recent years have seen the development of methods for the synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyran-2-ones, known as medicinal agents and building blocks. Progress on N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) chemistry has given rise to a number of reactive catalytic intermediates, in particular enols/enolates and α,β-unsaturated acylazolium ions, which provide the title compounds through different synthetic pathways.

Angewandte Chemie 36/2014: Click to Synthesize
In this issue, K. B. Sharpless et al. review the sulfur(VI) fluoride exchange reaction (SuFEx): In what way is it another good reaction for click chemistry? The Highlight deals with the remote functionalization of C–H bonds (M. Beller et al.).
In the Communications section, A. Friedler et al. describe a tandem in situ peptide cyclization through trifluoroacetic acid cleavage (see picture). S.-G. He et al. report on the thermal methane conversion to formaldehyde by single platinum atoms located in cluster anions. C. J. Yang et al. succeeded in the preparation of a nanomicelle for real-time imaging and NIR cancer therapy. Sharpless, Fokin et al. present a synthesis of polysulfates by applying SuFEx click chemistry.
A Small Golden Cosmos
Planet–satellite nanostructures from gold nanoparticles and RAFT star polymers
The cosmos in miniature: German researchers have produced nanoparticles surrounded by a group of smaller nanoparticles like a planet orbited by satellites. They equipped larger gold nanoparticles with special star-shaped polymers, which in turn bind to smaller gold nanoparticles. As the researchers report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, it is possible to precisely control the distance between the tiny “satellites” and their central “planet” by means of the molecular weight—and thus the chain length—of the polymers.
