Using chemistry to target treatments
Protein structures bridge the gap between bioinformatics and cheminformatics, making it possible to identify promising new drug compounds earlier in the screening process.
A. W. Edith Chan, Malcolm P. Weir

BSE research comes to the U.S.
Congress and clinical researchers are taking a good look at pathogens that could hurt humans and their food supply.
Debra A. Schwartz

Alkylated carborane anions and radicals
New tools for chemists: Novel weakly nucleophilic anions whose salts conduct electricity well in nonpolar solvents and which form strongly oxidizing, stable radicals.
Benjamin T. King, Ilya Zharov, Josef Michl

Combined catalytic reactions—Nature’s way
Going from traditional step-by-step methods to one-pot coupled conversion saves raw materials and energy and reduces waste.
Rob Schoevaart, Tom Kieboom

Benzocyclobutene-based polymers for microelectronics
Today’s complex microelectronics devices place high demands on packaging materials. This family of polymers fills the bill.
Ying-Hung So, Philip Garrou, Jang-Hi Im, Daniel M. Scheck

Of PCBs and the river
Environmentalists claimed victory when EPA approved dredging the Hudson River to remove polychlorinated biphenyls. But will the cleanup operations reduce exposure of humans to PCBs or not?
