Light Makes Pores Bigger. Photo-growth of pores in a polymer gel network

Irradiation with light is an established method for initiating polymerization or crosslinking (curing) in the production of plastics. American researchers are now using light to retroactively increase the size of the pores within a polymer network. As reported in the journal Angewandte Chemie, this new approach allows for the production of polymer gels with tailored mechanical properties.

It All Depends on the Length. Chemical functionalization of ‘toxic’ long carbon nanotubes reduces their effective length and alleviates asbestos-like pathogenicity

Carbon nanotubes resemble asbestos fibers in their form. Unfortunately, long, pure nanotubes also seem to have asbestos-like pathogenicity. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, a European research team has now reported that chemical modifications, for example with tri(ethylene glycol), can alleviate this problem if the modification makes their surface more water-friendly and reduces the effective length of the tubes.

Clogged Pores for Increased Effectiveness. Whey protein stabilizes nanotransporter and controls pH-dependent drug release

How can pharmaceuticals be safely carried through the acidic environment of the stomach and into the intestines? A team of Canadian and Australian researchers has developed a novel nanotransporter that consists of porous particles of silicon dioxide stabilized with a whey protein. In acidic environments the protein forms a gel that closes off the pores; at higher pH values, the pores are opened.

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.
