54_14/2015Cover Picture: Photoinduced Postsynthetic Polymerization of a Metal–Organic Framework toward a Flexible Stand-Alone Membrane (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 14/2015)

The processability of metal–organic frameworks presents a major challenge in their further application. In their Communication on page 4259 ff., X. Feng, Bo Wang, and co-workers introduce a photoinduced postsynthetic polymerization (PSP) strategy to covalently link crystals of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) by polymer chains. The PSP approach is a facile and mild method to prepare flexible and stand-alone MOF-based membranes.

54_14i/2015Inside Cover: Efficient Access to Titanaaziridines by C-H Activation of N-Methylanilines at Ambient Temperature (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 14/2015)

Killing two birds with one stoneIn the presence of a bis(η51-pentafulvene) titanium complex, N-methylanilines undergo two bond activation reactions to directly give titanaaziridines. Based on this transformation, S. Doye, R. Beckhaus, et al. report in their Communication on page 4383 ff. the isolation and investigation of all key intermediates of the titanium-catalyzed hydroaminoalkylation of alkenes. The results represent the first experimental proof of the suggested reaction mechanism of this industrially promising reaction.

54_14c/2015Inside Back Cover: Bioinspired Therapeutic Dendrimers as Efficient Peptide Drugs Based on Supramolecular Interactions for Tumor Inhibition (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 14/2015)

Bioinspired therapeutic dendrimers are the first dendritic peptide drugs that can be used for efficient tumor therapy. In their Communication on page 4289 ff., X. Xu, Z. Gu, et al. describe the significant supramolecular interactions between the therapeutic dendrimers and nucleic acids via the tryptophan residues. Furthermore, it is shown that the therapeutic dendrimers are efficient antitumor agents both in vitro and in vivo.

54_14b/2015Back Cover: Polymeric Micelle Assembly with Inorganic Nanosheets for Construction of Mesoporous Architectures with Crystallized Walls (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 14/2015)

Mesoporous architectures were synthesized through assembly of polymeric micelles with crystalline inorganic nanosheets. In their Communication on page 4222 ff., Y. Yamauchi et al. show that the electrostatic interactions between negatively charged nanosheeets and positively charged polymeric micelles lead to the formation of composite micelles. Removal of the micelles by calcination results in mesoporous oxides with the original crystalline structure.
