The Nematic Phases of Bent-Core Liquid Crystals
Bent on stability: The nematic liquidâ€crystal phases formed by bentâ€core molecules have remarkable properties. This Minireview reports recent progress in stabilizing the nematic phase at accessible temperatures, concentrating on oxadiazoleâ€based materials. It also describes recent measurements of their physical properties, including optical, dielectric, elastic, and flexoelectric coefficients, and electric field effects (see graphic). [Minireview]

Angewandte Chemie 27/2015: Nobels, Let There Be Light!
In the Communications section, J. Caro et al. present an inverted fuel cell, which can separate hydrogen from exhaust gases of different compositions at room temperature (see picture). H.-F. Bettinger et al. report on the synthesis of 1,2-azaborines, and S.-Y. Liu et al. describe their Diels–Alder reactions. R. McDonald et al. succeeded in the reductive catenation of phosphine antimony complexes to prepare bicyclic chair-configured antimony cations. G. Travé et al. target two oncogenic functional sites of an oncoprotein with a high-affinity bivalent ligand.
Self-Assembly of molecular Archimedean polyhedra
Chemists truly went back to the drawing board to develop new X-shaped organic building blocks that can be linked together by metal ions to form an Archimedean cuboctahedron. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, the scientists report that by changing the concentration or using different counterions, the cuboctahedron can be reversibly split into two octahedra—an interesting new type of fusion–fission switching process.
