Solar-driven water splitting with photoelectrochemical cells is an attractive means to convert intermittent solar radiation into H2 for use as a storable, non-polluting fuel.
How does nature handle copper, an essential metal that is also potentially toxic?
The Hong lab has recently reported the total synthesis of (+)-dactylolide in 19 steps for the longest sequence from commercially available 1,3-dithiane with an overall yield of 1.4%.
The Widenhoefer group has recently reported the gold(I)-catalyzed stereoconvergent, intermolecular enantioselective hydroamination of chiral, racemic 1,3-disubstituted allenes, which represents the first example of enantioselective intermole
How do ionic interactions and macromolecules play a role in iron transport in living cells? Find out by reading the chapter from the Crumbliss lab “Iron Transport in Living Cells” by A. L. Crumbliss and C. J.
Graduate student Nick Polizzi and collaborators in Beratan's lab have built a theoretical model to describe how charge flows through bacterial appendages, known as pili.
Recent work from the Craig lab reports a functional group that grows longer in response to applied machincal forces, a response that can subsequently be reversed by shining light on the sample.
The Charbonneau group has recently taken a crack at the glass problem. Read more in Charbonneau et al., Phys. Rev. Lett.
