52_21/2013Cover Picture: A High-Valent Heterobimetallic [CuIII(μ-O)2NiIII]2+ Core with Nucleophilic Oxo Groups (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 21/2013)

Unlike typical homodinuclear high-valent [M2(μ-O)2]n+ cores, a rare heterobimetallic high-valent CuNi bis(μ-oxo) complex behaves as a nucleophile. In their Communication on page 5622 ff., K. Ray, M. Driess, C. Limberg et al. show that this complex can initiate deformylation of aldehydes, indicating that mixed-metal bis(μ-oxo) cores are viable intermediates in the deformylation of fatty aldehydes by cyanobacterial aldehyde decarbonylase, for which a similar cofactor has been suggested, but not isolated.

Fluorescencefor001

W. Tan and co-workers report fluorescent DNA nanodevices that undergo fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and can be anchored on living cell surfaces in their Communication on page 5490 ff.


Directed Evolutionfor002

In their Communication on page 5571 ff., F. H. Arnold and co-workers describe a synthetic substrate that can be used in a colorimetric screen for terpene synthase cyclization activity, thereby facilitating the optimization of these enzymes.


Micromotorsfor003

S. Sanchez et al. show in their Communication on page 5552 ff. that self-propelled micromotors in a solution change their trajectory when hydrogen peroxide is added. This response resembles the chemotactic behavior of some living organisms.
