Common sense tells us that when you heat something up it gets softer, but a team of researchers, led by University of Toronto chemistry and physics professor R.J. Dwayne Miller, has demonstrated the exact opposite.  Their findings will be published online in the prestigious international journal Science on January 22."It is counter-intuitive but the gold got harder instead of softer," says Miller.  Can you imagine a blacksmith heating up gold to pound it thinner, only to find it got...

When the University of Chicago's David Mazziotti talks about chemistry, perhaps he is thinking about how the behavior of all of the electrons in a molecule can be anticipated from the behavior of just two of its electrons.For 50 years theoretical chemists have puzzled over the problem of predicting many-electron chemistry with only two electrons, which many thought intractable and perhaps impossible to solve. Mazziotti, an associate professor in chemistry, will present a new approach to...

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c81890) has announced the addition of "The Chemical Bond in Inorganic Chemistry: The Bond Valence Model" to their offering. The bond valence model is a recently developed model of the chemical bond in inorganic chemistry that complements the bond model widely used in organic chemistry. It is simple, quantitative, intuitive, and predictive - no more than a pocket calculator is needed to calculate it. This book focuses on...

The International Journal of Quantum Chemistry is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1967 by Per-Olov Lowdin. The journal moved to an in-house editorial office model in 2011, enlisting a permanent team of professional editors. It publishes original, primary research and review articles on all aspects of quantum chemistry, including an expanded scope focusing on aspects of materials science, biochemistry, biophysics, quantum physics, and quantum information theory.

mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
