Geoff Sykes was one of the UK's foremost academic researchers in the field of biological chemistry. He was a pioneer of bioinorganic chemistry, the study of how metals, often in trace amounts, control the life of cells. The strength of this area today, with its significant impact and potential for medical sciences, owes not little to the research Sykes performed at Leeds and Newcastle Universities. He was born Alfred Geoffrey Sykes in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, in 1934 and emerged from humble...

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A chemist accused of supplying steroids to the BALCO lab at the center of a global sports steroid scandal is poised to enter a guilty plea on Friday, according to a court calendar and an official who did not want to be named. Federal prosecutors charged Patrick Arnold, an Illinois resident, in November with supplying BALCO with THG, a steroid that sports testing initially could not detect. The BALCO scandal has damaged the reputations of top athletes in...

By Tom Armitage ZURICH (Reuters) - Albert Hofmann, the Swiss chemist who discovered the mind-bending drug LSD, celebrated his 100th birthday on Wednesday, still sprightly some 60 years after taking his first trip. "This is a wonderful birthday party that I am having," he told guests at a celebration on Wednesday. "One could say it has been a mind-expanding experience, without the LSD." Working in a laboratory in Basel in the late 1930s, he stumbled upon the substance lysergic acid...

DUBLIN -- Scientists have made a breakthrough in nanotechnology which could hasten the development of molecular machines that could act as artificial muscles or drug delivery systems in the body. Chemists at Edinburgh University said on Wednesday they had built molecules that can move objects larger than the size of an atom in an advance in the technology that deals with manipulating materials on a minuscule scale. "Although man's understanding of how to build and control molecular machines...
