Angewandte Chemie International Edition is a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers all aspects of chemistry. Its impact factor was 12.730 in 2010, the highest value for a chemistry-specific journal that publishes original research. It is a journal of the German Chemical Society and is published by Wiley-VCH.
Chemist discovers new information about elemental boron
Dalhousie chemistry researcher and Royal Society of Canada Fellow Dr. Mary Anne White led a team of researchers to new discoveries about boron (B), the fifth element in the periodic table.
Long-term storage of digital information in DNA is possible
It is evident from samples from mammoths, bears, and other fossils: sequenceable DNA can last up to several hundred thousand years. But one does not necessarily need fossil bones as capsules of silica glass spheres can do ...
New technique could slash energy used to produce many plastics
A new material developed at the University of Colorado Boulder could radically reduce the energy needed to produce a wide variety of plastic products, from grocery bags and cling wrap to replacement hips and bulletproof vests.
Crystal breeding factory uncovered
A breakthrough in understanding the way in which crystals develop will have a major impact for the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries.
Scientists develop first effective and affordable bedbug bait and trap
The world owes a debt of gratitude to Simon Fraser University biologist Regine Gries. Her arms have provided a blood meal for more than a thousand bedbugs each week for five years while she and her husband, biology professor ...
Light-induced generation of gas breaks open microcapsules and releases fragrances
Fragrances that are sensitive or need to be released with a time delay can be enclosed in microcapsules. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Swiss scientists have now introduced a new type of microcapsule that can be ruptured ...
Scientists gain cellular-level insights into drug delivery processes
Chemists, biologists and pharmacologists deal with the question of how complex active substances can be introduced into cells such that they are rapidly and easily available. Building on earlier research, interdisciplinary ...
Chemists develop technology to produce clean-burning hydrogen fuel
Rutgers researchers have developed a technology that could overcome a major cost barrier to make clean-burning hydrogen fuel – a fuel that could replace expensive and environmentally harmful fossil fuels.
Chemists crack the chirality code
Chemists at Trinity College Dublin have cracked the chirality code. The chirality (or left/right-handed asymmetry) of amino acids presented a long-standing challenge that complicated efforts to create certain types of proteins, ...
Chemically driven micro- and nanomotors
At least since the movie "The Fantastic Voyage" in 1966, in which a submarine is shrunk down and injected into the blood stream of a human, people have been toying with the idea of sending tiny "micromachines" and "nanorobots" ...
