The journal Angewandte Chemie is celebrating its 125th anniversary as a world leader - with Nobel Laureates and other luminaries

On the occasion of its 125th anniversary, the journal Angewandte Chemie is treating its readers to a special issue, which contains no less than 16 contributions from chemistry Nobel Laureates, and also a symposium that will take place in Berlin in March and will feature three Nobel Laureates. In its 125-year history, the journal has developed from a magazine for the chemical industry in German-speaking countries (that's where the name of the journal comes from: Angewandte Chemie means "applied chemistry") to a modern global medium for fundamental chemical research. Both the English and German editions are available electronically, a form that has long since overtaken the printed issues. The journal has always been owned by scientific societies, and since 1947 it has been in the hands of the Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh; German Chemical Society), in close cooperation with its scientific publisher Wiley-VCH.

Inverse Fingerprints on Paper: Visualization of Latent Fingermarks by Nanotechnology: Reversed Development on Paper: A Possible Remedy to the Variation in Sweat Composition

Paper is one of the surfaces most commonly tested for fingerprints in forensics. Unfortunately, it is particularly difficult to make fingerprints on paper visible. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Israeli scientists have now introduced a new method developed specifically for use on paper. It produces a “negative” of the fingerprint and is, in contrast to conventional methods, independent of the composition of the sweat residue left behind.

What Authors Want From Open Access Publishing

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced the results of an author survey on open access, with over ten thousand respondents from across Wiley’s journal portfolio. The research explored the factors that authors assess when deciding where to publish, and whether to publish open access.  Among the top factors considered by authors were the relevance and scope of the journal, the journal’s impact factor and the international reach of the journal.

Artificial Blood Maker: EPO - First successful total synthesis of Erythropoietin

“Blood is quite a peculiar kind of juice“—that is what Mephisto knew, according to Goethe’s “Faust“. But if blood really is very special, then erythropoietin (EPO) must be a very special molecule, as it triggers the production of our red blood cells. After ten years of intense research, American scientists have now succeeded in making a fully synthetic version of this special molecule. This achievement represents a landmark advance in the chemical synthesis of complex biological molecules from basic building blocks.

Targeted Attack on Tumors: Selective tumor treatment: β-galactosidase releases active agent from prodrugs

One of the largest challenges of chemotherapy lies in the fact that cancer cells must be killed while healthy tissue must be protected. French researchers have now introduced a new approach in the journal Angewandte Chemie: The enzyme β-galactosidase releases the active drug from an inactive precursor, known as a prodrug, which can only be taken up by tumor cells.

Made out of Thin Air: Fixation of CO2 through iridium catalyzed hydrosilylation

Carbon dioxide could be a useful alternative source of carbon for the chemical industry. It is inexpensive, is supplied in abundance by nature, and would help to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. In addition, it would significantly improve the carbon footprint of fuels and chemical products. The largest barrier to this process is the high stability of the carbon dioxide molecule. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Spanish researchers have now introduced a new process that traps carbon dioxide in the form of silyl formates, which are silicon-containing formic acid esters.

Landscapes of Taste. An electronic tongue for protein analysis

Electronic noses are used to sniff out exhaust fumes and assist with quality control of foods. Less well known is the fact that equivalent devices, electronic tongues, are capable of recognizing dissolved substances. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, French researchers have now presented a new and particularly simple approach to making an electronic tongue that can differentiate between proteins.
