(P)Review

Reviews in Angewandte Chemie, written by leading experts, summarize the important results of recent research on topical subjects in all branches of chemistry, point to unresolved problems, and discuss possible developments. Although review articles are generally written upon invitation of the editor, unsolicited manuscripts are also welcome provided they are in keeping with the character of the journal.

Hybrid Volatolomics and Disease Detection

Dr. Yoav Y. Broza, Dr. Pawel Mochalski, Dr. Vera Ruzsanyi, Prof. Anton Amann, Prof. Hossam Haick

Hybrid Volatolomics and Disease Detection

Ill-gotten gains: Volatolomes enable identification of the collection of volatile organic compounds in a biological cell, tissue, or organism, that are the by-/end products of cellular processes in the living organism. The new analytical approach of volatolomics allows the large-scale scientific study of chemical processes involving volatile organic compounds.

Biomimetic Self-Healing

Dr. Charles E. Diesendruck, Prof. Dr. Nancy R. Sottos, Prof. Dr. Jeffrey S. Moore, Prof. Dr. Scott R. White

Biomimetic Self-Healing

On the mend: Evolution has endowed biological organisms with the ability to self-heal. Inspired by the principles of nature, scientists have been trying to create synthetic materials with self-healing capabilities that can regenerate their mechanical integrity and specific functions after damage.

Machine-Assisted Organic Synthesis

Prof. Steven V. Ley, Daniel E. Fitzpatrick, Dr. Rebecca M. Myers, Dr. Claudio Battilocchio, Dr. Richard. J. Ingham

Machine-Assisted Organic Synthesis

Machines making molecules: This Review discusses upstream equipment that is assisting chemists to create molecules at the time of reaction. By adopting a machine-assisted approach, new reactivities have been unlocked and previously impossible conditions have been utilized.

On the Role of Metals in Nitrogen-Doped Carbon Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Reduction

On the Role of Metals in Nitrogen-Doped Carbon Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Reduction

A free agent: Nitrogen-modified carbon (NC) materials (see scheme) are of emerging importance for electrocatalysis of the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). However, trace-metal residues in NC catalysts can significantly influence the ORR, which has raised concerns regarding the validity of the notion of a metal-free catalyst. A critical discussion of the role of metals in NC catalysts is given to reconcile divergent views.

Four Decades of the Chemistry of Planar Hypercoordinate Compounds

Dr. Li-Ming Yang, Prof. Eric Ganz, Prof. Zhongfang Chen, Prof. Zhi-Xiang Wang, Prof. Paul von Ragué Schleyer

Four Decades of the Chemistry of Planar Hypercoordinate Compounds

Where the great plains begin: Planar hypercoordinate chemistry has emerged as an exciting field with the discovery of unique molecules with unusual bonding configurations. Starting with planar tetragonal carbon, molecules of increasing complexity and hypercoordinate bond number from four up to ten have been predicted, and some have been synthesized. This Review covers the evolution and rapid growth of the field of planar hypercoordinate chemistry over the last four and a half decades.

Graphene-Based Photocatalysts for Solar-Fuel Generation

Dr. Quanjun Xiang, Prof. Bei Cheng, Prof. Jiaguo Yu

Graphene-Based Photocatalysts for Solar-Fuel Generation

There’s always the sun: Graphene-based photocatalysts for solar-fuel production are of significant interest in solving the global energy problem. The recent advances in the fabrication and application of graphene-based photocatalysts, including photocatalytic reduction of CO2 to hydrocarbon fuels and photocatalytic splitting of water to H2 are explored.
