53_25/2014Cover Picture: Organ Repair, Hemostasis, and In Vivo Bonding of Medical Devices by Aqueous Solutions of Nanoparticles (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 25/2014)

Rapid and efficient repair in vivo by the concept of nanobridging—adhesion by aqueous solutions of nanoparticles—even under hemorrhagic conditions in soft organs, such as the liver, for which sutures are traumatic, is described by D. Letourneur, L. Leibler et al. in their Communication on page 6369 ff. The method also leads to the remarkably aesthetic healing of deep skin wounds. Nanobridging also allows medical devices to be fixed to tissues, thereby opening new avenues for surgery and regenerative medicine.

Protein Structuresfor001

B. Song, X. Gao, F. Huang et al. describe in their Communication on page 6358 ff. the ability of Al ions to induce the formation of backbone ring structures in a wide range of peptides, including neurodegenerative disease related motifs.


Sparse Sampling Techniquesfor002

In their Communication on page 6464 ff., K. Kazimierczuk et al. show how diffusion-ordered multidimensional NMR spectroscopy can be accelerated by exploiting the principles of compressed sensing.


Solid-Phase Synthesisfor003

Teflon-patterned paper that enables the flow-through synthesis of multiple peptides in parallel is described by R. Derda and co-workers in their Communication on page 6374 ff. The resulting arrays can then be used for cell-based assays.
