Latest American Chemical Society Stories
As more reports appear of a grim "post-antibiotic era" ushered in by the rise of drug-resistant bacteria, a new strategy for fighting infection is emerging that targets a patient's cells rather than those of the invading pathogens.
Through lotions, shampoos and other personal care products (PCPs), infants and toddlers are likely becoming exposed to potentially harmful substances, called parabens, at an even higher level than adult women in the U.S., researchers have reported.
Whether you're brining your bird this Thanksgiving or experimenting with "wheat meat," the American Chemical Society's (ACS') latest Bytesize Science episode offers five tips on how to make this year's holiday even better through chemistry.
A group of nanoparticles called "GUMBOS" is as varied as their culinary namesake implies, with a wide range of potential applications from cancer therapy to sensors.
For millions of homes, plants, wood and other types of "biomass" serve as an essential source of fuel, especially in developing countries, but their mercury content has raised flags among environmentalists and researchers.
Scientists are reporting development of a squishy gel that when compressed — like at a painful knee joint — releases anti-inflammatory medicine.
Many of today's technologies, from hybrid car batteries to flat-screen televisions, rely on materials known as rare earth elements (REEs) that are in short supply, but scientists are reporting development of a new method to recycle them from wastewater.
Scientists at Rice University are enhancing the natural antioxidant properties of an element found in a car’s catalytic converter to make it useful for medical applications.
Organometallics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society. As of May 2012, the editor-in-chief is John A. Gladysz. Organometallics publishes records in one of the most active fields for organometallic, inorganic, organic, and materials chemists. Articles, communications, mini-reviews, and notes detail the synthesis, structure, bonding, chemical reactivity and reaction mechanisms, and applications of organometallic and organometalloidal compounds....
The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1950 and published by the American Chemical Society. The current editor-in-chief, James N. Seiber, has served as editor of the journal since 1999. His career has included positions in industry, government, and academia. He is an emeritus faculty member in the Department of Environmental Toxicology at the University of California, Davis. This journal publishes cutting edge original research...
The Journal of the American Chemical Society is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1879 by the American Chemical Society. The journal has absorbed two other journals in history: the Journal of Analytical and Applied Chemistry (1893) and American Chemical Journal (1914). It is published on a weekly basis and is edited by Peter J. Stang (University of Utah). This journal publishes original research papers in all fields pertaining to chemistry and publishes nearly 16,000 pages...
