Greener, cheaper MOF synthesis

Our ChemSci Pick of the Week demonstrates the scalable synthesis of metal-organic-frameworks (MOFs) using ultrasonic or acoustic frequencies – rather than solvent-based approaches.

Splitting water with light

Our ChemSci Pick of the Week describes a metal oxide photocatalyst that can efficiently use sunlight to produce hydrogen from water, which could help tackle environmental issues and resource shortages.

(VIDEO) Improving the clarity of MRI scans

In this week’s pick, researchers have developed a molecular complex that could lead to high-quality MRI scans with lower toxicity than current methods.

Speeding up reactions

In today's ChemSci Pick of the Week, a team of scientists from China and the US have come up with a method for speeding up organic synthesis reactions by spraying and recycling solvents.

Expanding medicinal chemistry into 3D space

(INFOGRAPHIC) A novel metallofragment (mF) library is designed, synthesized, and characterized. 77% of the library is populating the 3D region with a diversity which exhibits a broad range of biological responses.

Harvesting light

(INFOGRAPHIC) In this week's ChemSciPick, we discover how dark states of organic LED molecules can be converted to bright states, significantly increasing the yield of light emitted.
