Nature Chemistry‘s second issue is now out. The research articles cover a wide range of topics, including catalysis, mesoporous materials, synthetic methodology, anion transport and DNA conductivity. In addition, there is a Commentary about pre-university chemical education, a Review article on Möbius aromaticity and a Thesis article that looks at alternative forms of the periodic table.

In ’Activating catalysts with mechanical force’, Alessio Piermattei, S. Karthikeyan and Rint P. Sijbesma of the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems, Eindhoven University of Technology (Nature Chemistry 1, 133 – 137; 2009), discuss the potential applications of mechanochemical catalyst activation in transduction and amplification of mechanical signals, as well as the promise of mechanically initiated polymerizations as a novel repair mechanism in self-healing materials.
