The Alchemist this issue takes a look at colorful nanoparticles and how to control them with a magnet, a platinum wrap that could improve the efficacy of certain types of anticancer drug, an answer to why trucks cannot crush mother-of-pearl, and the chemistry behind plans for a liquid telescope destined for the moon. Also, this week, the discovery of a new type of electron wave that exists on metal surfaces could provide a new foundation for theoretical studies of chemical reactions. Finally, a princely sum is shared by the journals Nature and Science for excellence in science communication.

Also new on the ChemWeb site this week: The Events Calendar at ChemWeb.com lists conferences, seminars, trade shows, user group meetings, webinars and many other events of interest to ChemWeb members.
