Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Angewandte Chemie team considers diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) among our core values and essential to our editorial practices. Read more about our understanding of these values and actions the team has taken on the dedicated DE&I page.

Connecting with the Scientific Community

  • members of the Angewandte scientific advisory committee

    The Scientific Advisory Committee establishes a close connection between the scientific community and the journal. Its members help to shape the scientific profile of the journal, consult on difficult decisions and appeals, and provide direct scientific insight into ethical cases.

  • members of the Angewandte international advisory board

    The International Advisory Board is an important point of contact between the editorial team and the scientific community. It represents the global and diverse nature of the journal's author- and readership, and ensures the journal's development is in line with the needs of the chemistry community.

  • members of the Angewandte editorial team, scientific advisory committee, and international advisory board

    The international Editorial Team, comprising five Executive Editors and over 20 Handling Editors, has an unparalleled collective expertise across all subdisciplines of chemistry. The editors are responsible for the peer review of submitted articles right through to making a final decision, and are dedicated to managing a fair and efficient evaluation process. They work closely with the Scientific Advisory Committee and interact with the International Advisory Board, as well as engage with the community through conference attendance, workshop presentations, and institute visits.

More Economical and Sustainable Rechargeable Batteries

Ultralow-concentration electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries

Lithium salts make batteries powerful but expensive. An ultralow-concentration electrolyte based on the lithium salt LiDFOB may be a more economical and more sustainable alternative. Cells using these electrolytes and conventional electrodes have been demonstrated to have high performance, as reported by a research team to the journal Angewandte Chemie. In addition, the electrolyte could facilitate both production and recycling of the batteries.

Click Chemistry: Diverse Chemical Function from a Few Good Reactions

  •  2004-2021
  •  28 May 2001

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Just a handful of good reactions are needed to assemble vast numbers of highly diverse organic molecules. (The graphic shows a simple example.) Yet, this easily accessible structural universe has not been mined by the medicinal chemistry community for its nuggets of desirable function. The requirements for the best reactions that can be employed, examples of such processes, and the philosophy that underlies their use are discussed in this review.

Cellulose: Fascinating Biopolymer and Sustainable Raw Material

  •  3358-3393
  •  24 May 2005

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The trend toward renewable resources has led to a global renaissance of cellulose research over the past ten years. This review describes the highlights of the progress made in this area, which has provided a better understanding of the structure of cellulose derivatives, the tailoring of cellulose products, alternative production processes for cellulose regenerates, and new pathways for the formation of supramolecular architectures.

A Stepwise Huisgen Cycloaddition Process: Copper(I)-Catalyzed Regioselective “Ligation” of Azides and Terminal Alkynes

  •  2596-2599
  •  15 July 2002

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

By simply stirring in water, organic azides and terminal alkynes are readily and cleanly converted into 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles through a highly efficient and regioselective copper(I)-catalyzed process (see scheme for an example).

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Nanospace laboratories: The chemistry of the coordination polymers (see picture) has developed extensively, affording new porous compounds and realizing not only applications, such as separation, storage, and heterogeneous catalysis but also unique nanosized vessels for low-dimensional ordered arrays. This Review summarizes the current state of research on the functionalization of porous coordination polymers.

Hydrogen Peroxide Synthesis: An Outlook beyond the Anthraquinone Process

  •  6962-6984
  •  23 October 2006

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The industrial synthesis of hydrogen peroxide by the anthraquinone process requires multiple unit operations and bears several disadvantages, such as the generation of by-products and significant energy requirements. Thus, the direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide from H2 and O2 (for example, with the aid of a Pd catalyst, see scheme) is a chemically and technologically significant alternative.

Fast Lithium Ion Conduction in Garnet-Type Li7La3Zr2O12

  •  7778-7781
  •  4 October 2007

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Low activation energy and fast lithium ion conduction have been observed for the new compound Li7La3Zr2O12. Relative to previously reported lithium garnets, the solid electrolyte shows a larger cubic lattice constant, higher lithium ion concentration, lower degree of chemical interaction between the Li+ ions and the other lattice constituents, and higher densification.

Sodium-ion batteries: The demand for batteries is projected to increase significantly owing to the emerging markets of electric vehicles and stationary energy storage. Sodium-ion batteries have been recently reconsidered with the hope to create low-cost batteries based on abundant elements that could complement lithium-ion battery technology in the future. In this review, we discuss the often surprising consequences of replacing Li+ by Na+ in a battery.

Beyond Mechanical Recycling: Giving New Life to Plastic Waste

  •  15402-15423
  •  11 March 2020

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Plastic fantastic: Plastic can rise again and again as a new product. Researchers now know methods with which new plastics can be produced from 100 % recycled material, products that can even be used for food applications. This development is possible thanks to chemical recycling, through which polymer chains are first broken to then be reformed into new molecules, such as plastics but also other chemicals.
