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. 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 HighChem volumes that are still available (table below) can be ordered online free of charge in our shop. 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 as a free download and can be ordered as a printed version in the GDCh shop (shipping costs may apply). All the articles in this brochure can be found in the Knowledge and Facts section of our FaszinationChemie.de website
The current newsreel 2017 was designed by the Division of Chemists in Civil Service . Here you will find all the unabridged contributions from 2017.
