53_20/2014Cover Picture: Metal- and Reagent-Free Highly Selective Anodic Cross-Coupling Reaction of Phenols (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 20/2014)

Neither leaving groups nor catalysts are required for the electrochemical phenol–phenol cross-coupling reaction that is described by S. Waldvogel et al. in their Communication on page 5210 ff. The key to this sustainable synthetic method is the combination of diamond electrodes and a solvent mixture that exhibits an unusual capability of hydrogen bonding. The desired nonsymmetric 2,2'-biphenols could be constructed from simple substrates without the generation of reagent waste.

Single-Molecule Biosensorsfor001

The real-time, label-free biodetection of H1N1 viruses with single-molecule sensitivity by using Si nanowires as local reporters in combination with microfluidics is presented by M. Yao, L. Li, X. Guo et al. in their Communication on pp. 5038 ff.


Polymeric Thermometersfor002

P. Woisel, R. Hoogenboom, G. Cooke et al. describe in their Communication on page 5044 ff., the development of a (re)programmable thermometer that memorizes the thermal history of the solution and provides an associated visible readout.


Target Identificationfor003

In their Communication on page 5102 ff., S. B. Park et al. show that the convergent strategy of phenotype screening with early stage target identification can bridge the gap between phenotype-based hit discovery and rational drug discovery to generate a new class of therapeutic agents.
