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.
Molecular Structure and Dynamics of Water at the Water–Air Interface Studied with Surface-Specific Vibrational Spectroscopy
Mischa Bonn, Yuki Nagata, Ellen H. G. Backus
Lightly scratching the surface: A central question regarding the water–air interface is to what extent the structure and dynamics of water molecules is influenced by the breaking of hydrogen bonds, and thus how they differ from those in the bulk water? One method to study the water–air interface is the laser-based surface-specific vibrational spectroscopy. The advances made by these investigations are presented and discussed.

Just inkjet it: Inkjet printing plays an important role as a process technology in the fast-growing field of microfluidic devices made of paper. This Review introduces the basics, strengths, and weaknesses related to the inkjet printing of functional materials essential for paper-based analytical devices. The discussion includes fundamental aspects as well as examples of analytical applications.
