Angewandte Chemie International Edition has published an opinion essay by Tomas Hudlicky on 4 June 2020, entitled as “Organic synthesis—Where now?” is thirty years old. A reflection on the current state of affairs. As an academic organization in chemistry and chemical engineering, GCCCD® (Gesellschaft Chinesischer Chemiker und Chemieingenieure in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland e.V.) strongly condemns the author’s opinion on diversity, prejudice against certain groups, and especially the author’s opinionated judgments and slanders to the whole chemistry community in China. We are glad that this essay has been retracted by the journal and further investigation on this incident is being conducted. We hope Angewandte Chemie international edition will stand for the values of fairness, justice and diversity. We expect that Angewandte Chemie will take effective measures to improve the peer-review process and make sure that this kind of incident will not happen again.
