ChemPhysChem 9/2012: Molecules on the move
In issue 9, W. K. Zhang and N. N. Liu review recent advances in single-molecule force spectroscopy studies of macromolecular interactions. In a Minireview, J. C. G. Esteves da Silva and L. Pinto da Silva discuss the fascinating properties of firefly chemiluminescence and bioluminescence (see picture). The Highlight by H. Terrones shows how fullerene peapods have opened the possibility of studying reactions in a confined space and the Concept by K. Okano and T. Yamashita describes chiral environments formed by a vortex flow. Finally, the Article by H.-L. Xu, Z.-M. Su, Z.-R. Li et al. deals with spiral intramolecular charge transfer in Möbius cyclacenes and the Communication by R. Boulatov and Y. Tian presents a quantum-chemical validation of the local assumption of chemomechanics for a unimolecular reaction.
