New Home for Patent Watch
Although this is the last issue of Chemical Innovation, the Heart Cut and Patent Watch departments will live on in another "location". Beginning in early 2002, new items will appear weekly on the Web at ACS's portal, Many of the current contributors will continue to summarize the chemical literature for you.
Patent Watch items appear in the same order as the print version.  You may choose to browse or read selected items as listed below.
