Aktuelle Wochenschau and HighChem

Aktuelle Wochenschau - fascination with chemistry in all its facets

With the Aktuelle Wochenschau, the GDCh gave an overview of current research and developments in various sub-areas of chemistry such as water chemistry, biochemistry, food chemistry or sustainable chemistry from 2005 to 2019 ( www.aktuelle-wochenschau.de ). The Aktuelle Wochenschau was supervised every year by one of the GDCh Divisions . Members of the Division created the individual articles in which, in addition to an overview, they reported directly on their research projects.

The Aktuelle Wochenschau into the FaszinationChemie website since 2020. "100 Years of macromolecular chemistry" was the 2020 topic, which was professionally supervised by the GDCh Division of Macromolecular Chemistry . analytical chemistry be the main topic in 2021.

HighChem (2005 - 2015)

The volumes of the HighChem series 2005 to 2016 are based on the Online offer Aktuelle Wochenschau. The articles published there were prepared journalistically and didactically and summarized thematically and published by the GDCh in the following year. There are around 50 articles in each volume. HighChem is aimed at an audience interested in science, whether pupils, students or scientists. The previous appearances in this series are summarized in the following table.
You can order HighChem volumes online free of charge. Volumes that are out of print will no longer be reprinted. Information on the brochure of the Aktuelle Wochenschau 2016 and 2017 can be found at the bottom of this page.

Aktuelle Wochenschau 2016

The HighChem up close series ended with Volume 11 (Chemistry and Light, Aktuelle Wochenschau 2015). The articles in the current newsreel of the year 2016 (chemistry of the elements ) can be found here.

On the occasion of the International Year of the Periodic Table 2019, most of the authors have updated their contributions. These were published in a brochure "Chemistry of the Elements", which was published in June 2019. It is available as a free download and is distributed at trade fairs and other GDCh events, but not sent by post. You can find all the articles in this brochure in the Knowledge and Facts section of our FaszinationChemie.de service

Aktuelle Wochenschau 2017

Nothing stays as it is, the HighChem brochures are also being adapted to the changed reading habits. In line with the steadily declining demand for printed brochures from the Highchem series, we have prepared the Aktuelle Wochenschau for 2017 differently. The brochure Aktuelle Wochenschau - Chemists in Civil Service is a compilation of the QR codes that lead to the articles on the Internet. Therefore this brochure cannot be ordered here. It is distributed at trade fairs and other GDCh events. Here you can find all the unabridged articles from 2017.
