A recent ACS Virtual Issue features a collection of organometallic chemistry papers from research groups at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs). Four ACS core-chemistry journals, Organometallics, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Letters, and The Journal of Organic Chemistry published the papers between 2014 and 2018.      The authors represent… (Show more)

Berberine is a historical herbal remedy garnering new attention over its capability to reduce cholesterol and provide for improved heart health. Due to its low bioavailability, its uptake and efficacy however can be improved by applying nanotechnology. Recently, researchers at University of Massachusetts Lowell used PLGA-PEG-PLGA (PolyVivo AK072)… (Show more)

I have a question regarding removal of a residual solvent from a powder. I want to place an open container of my chemical inside a vacuum chamber with another open container of activated charcoal to absorb the solvent, then maintain a vacuum for some time. I know you can do this setup using two separate flasks, one with my chemical, the other with… (Show more)

I know it’s derived from coconut acid and believe the triglycerides are removed but just coming up short. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   I understand cetyl, cetearyl, cetostearyl, and cetyl alcohol 40 are all derived from coconut oil and carry a low comedogenicity. I just really want to be able to explain (and understand!) why this… (Show more)

I'm looking for advice on how to move from academia to IP or patent law. I've heard from multiple people (who all heard from a friend, who heard from a friend) that some law firms will hire Ph.D. scientists and help pay for law school, but I've never met anyone who has actually done this. I don't think I can quit my job to go to law school without… (Show more)

Dear members of ACS community,   I though it would be nice if theoretical chemists could share a compilation of some interesting simulation software. This is why I propose this - admittedly quite small - list of some of the codes I have been using or that I have worked with.   Please feel free to expand or correct this document and/or to…

Advanced ceramics and bioactive polymers represent two classes of rapidly developing materials which hold great promise for a wide variety of applications. Tissue engineering refers to the regrowth of missing or damaged tissue and is a medical field which can be used for a wide variety of trauma cases or disease states. Typically, this requires… (Show more)
