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 ). At the end of 2019, the Aktuelle Wochenschau was discontinued as an independent service and integrated into the FaszinationChemie website.
The volumes of the series HighChem 2005 to 2016 are based on the Online service Aktuelle Wochenschau. The contributions published there were journalistically and didactically prepared and published by the GDCh the following year, summarized by topic. Each volume contains around 50 articles. HighChem is aimed at an audience interested in science, whether schoolchildren, students or scientists. The previous releases in this series are summarized in the table below.
You can order HighChem volumes online for free. 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.

The series HighChem up close ended with volume 11 (chemistry and light, Aktuelle Wochenschau 2015). In 2016, the subject of the newsreel was chemistry of the elements. On the occasion of the International Year of the Periodic Table 2019, most authors have updated their contributions. These were published in a brochure "Chemistry of the Elements" that was published in June 2019. It is available to download free of charge and is distributed at trade fairs and other GDCh events, but not sent by post. All the articles in this brochure can be found in the Knowledge and Facts section of our FaszinationChemie.de website
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.
