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.
Researchers create unique material for the new generation solar cells
Researchers at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) Organic Chemistry laboratories have developed material which offers much cheaper alternative to the one which is currently being used in hybrid solar cells. The efficiency ...
Small molecules change biological clock rhythm
A team of chemists and biologists at the Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), Nagoya University have succeeded in finding new molecules that change the circadian rhythm in mammals by applying synthetic chemistry ...
Imitating viruses to deliver drugs to cells
Viruses are able to redirect the functioning of cells in order to infect them. Inspired by their mode of action, scientists from the CNRS and Université de Strasbourg have designed a "chemical virus" that can cross the double ...
Ferritin releases carbon monoxide in regulated therapeutic doses
Studies by researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology demonstrate a way of tapping into the potential therapeutic properties of carbon monoxide by using light to regulate release from protein cages inside cells.
What happens on the molecular level when smog gets into the lungs?
Coughing. A sore throat. Maybe a pain in your chest as you take a deep breath.
Team develops novel eco high performance energy storage device
The Department of Applied Physics of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has developed a simple approach to synthesize novel environmentally friendly manganese dioxide ink by using glucose.
Pitt researchers developing a novel way to identify pathogens
There are plenty of ways in the lab to determine which bug is bugging you when you're sick. The University of Pittsburgh's Xinyu Liu, Sanford Asher, and colleagues may have found a faster method.
New coating material embeds anti-smudge polymer chains in graft-copolymer micelles
Requirements for anti-smudge coatings are tough: They should be invisible, thin, repel any possible contaminant while not affecting the desired properties of the substrate, and they should be highly durable. In the journal ...
Red-burning pyrotechnic flare formulations without chlorine
The carmine color of pyrotechnic flares used in military and civilian environments arises from the combustion of strontium salts, some based on chlorides. The military-launched search for chlorine-free formulations has recently ...
Exploration of stable, crystalline, porous covalent organic frameworks
Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are a class of porous polymers that enable the atomically precise incorporation of organic units into periodic structures, creating highly ordered π-columnar arrays and one-dimensional ...
