Angewandte Chemie 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. Besides original research in the form of short communications, the journal contains review-type articles (reviews, minireviews, essays, highlights), and a magazine section (news, obituaries, book reviews, conference reports). Colloquially, the journal is simply called "Angewandte". "Angewandte Chemie" is German for "applied chemistry", although this translation no longer accurately describes the scope of the journal. The journal appears in two editions with separate volume and page numbering: a German edition, Angewandte Chemie (ISSN 0044-8249 (print), ISSN 1521-3757 (online)), with the magazine and review sections as well as some original research in German, and a fully English-language edition, Angewandte Chemie International Edition (ISSN 1433-7851 (print), ISSN 1521-3773 (online)).

Water ice renders short-lived molecule sustainable
"Antiaromatic compounds" is what chemists call a class of ring molecules which are extremely instable—the opposite of the highly stable aromatic molecules. Because they exist for mere split seconds, they ...
New silicon peptide biopolymers
Copolymers made from synthetic and biomimetic components open new and interesting perspectives as biocompatible, biodegradable materials that can also be given biological functionality. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, French ...
A long-lasting obstacle of solid oxide fuel cells has been overcome
One of the major drawbacks of carbon-fueled battery cells is the intrinsic presence of CO2, which impedes CO oxidation and, therefore, lowers the energy density of the cell. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, resear ...
