Electrochemically and Chemically Induced Redox Processes in Molecular Machines
Molecular machines: This review highlights recent developments in redox molecular machines that are set in motion by an electrochemical input. Examples in fluid solutions or in more organized matter such as surfaces, liquid crystal, and polymers, are discussed. [Minireview]

Angewandte Chemie 17/2015: The Peak of Asymmetry
In this issue, B. M. Trost and M. Rao review the development of chiral sulfoxide ligands for asymmetric catalysis. What strategies for the synthesis of enantiopure sulfoxides are available? In a Minireview, M. B. Herbert and R. H. Grubbs discuss Z-selective cross metathesis with ruthenium catalysts. The Highlights deal with carbon–carbon bond formation through photoredox catalysis (M. Beller et al.) and cyclobutanes for the synthesis of (hetero)cyclic compounds (H.-U. Reissig and R. Zimmer). The 50th anniversary of the Bürgenstock Conference is covered in an Essay by K. Müller and an Editorial by J. S. Siegel.
In the Communications section, S. Rau et al. show how the metal in the catalytic center of a molecular photocatalyst determines the mechanism of hydrogen production (see picture). J. Y. Lee et al. designed dual emitting cores for green thermally activated delayed fluorescent materials, and J. M. Farell and D. W. Stephan synthesized planar N-heterocyclic carbene diarylborenium ions by cationic borylation.
Influenza virus quickly and reliably detected from nasal or throat swabs
Almost every winter sees a new wave of influenza, threatening people by its highly contagious character and severe pathogenesis if those with weak or compromised immune system are infected. But when do sniffing and high temperature only point to a bad cold and when is it real influenza? American scientists have developed a simple system for testing for the influenza virus by just taking nasal or throat swabs and measuring the viral presence amperometrically by assessing the glucose level. This assay design is presented in the journal Angewandte Chemie.
