Alchemist on

This week, The Alchemist learns how a salt could rock the world of lithium batteries, there is a chemical correction for an anticancer compound we hear, and news from Australia on how Martian minerals might have formed. In bio news, a new interpretation of the genetic code and in nano news, the smallest, longest-running nanomotor. Finally, this week’s award goes to a DuPont scientist for his advances in crop protection chemicals.
