3 Reasons to Share Your SOP

By Jesse Stanchak

Everyone knows lab safety is essential. Yet accidents continue to happen. Why are lab accidents still a problem in 2018? In part, the problem may lie with chemists being reluctant to share safe Standard Operating Procedures, according to a new editorial in Organometallics. Alexander J. M. Miller and Ian A. Tonks argue that while organizations […]

Finding Pillars of Strength for MOFs

By Neil Savage, special to C&EN

The highly porous, large-surface-area structures known as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are popular for chemical sensing, gas separation, and catalysis. But they have a weakness: They can be flimsy. Some of the metal and ligand constructions form less robust lattices, and their pore walls can be stretched or broken, rendering them useless. Using a computer model, […]

How You Can Help Solve Chemistry’s Protein Problem

By Jesse Stanchak

Biochemistry has adopted manuscript submission guidelines to address the recent increases in entries to protein databases such as UniProt and GenBank/RefSeq. This surge of new entries affects chemists’ ability to unambiguously identify proteins that are described or characterized in a manuscript. This trend has also led to an increase in database misannotations, which hurts research […]
