The Alchemist on Chemistry

The Alchemist hears of a downside to graphene emerging from calculations on defects in less than crystalline forms of the material that could have implications for its applications, we also pick up on protective polymer spacesuits for fruit flies, the missing link in medical samples and how electrons can be used to watch atoms move in reaction transition states. In environmental news, black carbon ends up in the red rather than being green and finally US biochemistry wins a prestigious award in Germany.
