Tuticorin. Atoms, molecules, protons, electrons, bonding. Nothing new there, so why don't your students remember which is which and how it works? A question with many possible answers, but now, perhaps a solution!

Chikungunya virus is an emerging arbovirus that is widespread in tropical regions and is spreading quickly to temperate climates with recent epidemics in Africa and Asia and documented outbreaks in Europe and the Americas. It is having an increasingly major impact on humankind, with potentially life-threatening and debilitating arthritis. There is no treatment available, and only in the past 24 months have lead compounds for development as potential therapeutics been reported. This Perspective discusses the chikungunya virus as a significant, new emerging topic for medicinal chemistry, highlighting the key viral target proteins and their molecular functions that can be used in drug design, as well as the most important ongoing developments for anti-chikungunya virus research. It represents a complete picture of the current medicinal chemistry of chikungunya, supporting the development of chemotherapeutics through drug discovery and design targeting this virus.
The medicinal chemistry subgroup of the American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable (ACS GCI PR) offers a perspective on the current state of environmentally sustainable practices in medicinal chemistry with the aim of sharing best practices more widely and highlighting some potential future developments.

The MeOH extract of the aerial parts of Onosma erecta afforded four new pyrrolizidine alkaloids, 7-O-acetylechinatine N-oxide (1), a viridinatine N-oxide stereoisomer (2), 7-epi-echimiplatine N-oxide (3), and onosmerectine N-oxide (4), and two additional new natural products, the acid 2,3-dimethyl-2,3,4-trihydroxypentanoic acid (5) and the acyloin 4-methyl-2-hydroxypentanone (6).
Walter White may be best known as a dealer of blue stuff, but we should never forget his other important roles, as a chemistry teacher and father, which prepared him well to crack a good pun While the Heisenberg's dad jokes may have never made the...
Giantic network links all known compounds and reactions together.
Northwestern University scientists have connected 250 years of organic chemical knowledge into one giant computer network called Chematica — a chemical “Google” on steroids.
A decade in the making, the software optimizes syntheses of drug molecules and other important compounds, combines long (and expensive) syntheses of compounds into shorter and more economical routes, and identifies suspicious chemical recipes that could lead to chemical weapons.
The number of possible synthetic pathways leading to the desired target of a synthesis can be astronomical (10E19 pathways within five synthetic steps).
The Chematica network comprises some seven million chemicals connected by a similar number of reactions. A family of algorithms that searches and analyzes the network allows the chemist at his or her computer to easily tap into this vast compendium of chemical knowledge. And the system learns from experience, as more data and algorithms are added to its knowledge base.
Cleveland OH (SPX) Jan 10, 2012 - An insect's internal chemicals can be converted to electricity, potentially providing power for sensors, recording devices or to control the bug, a group of researchers at Case Western Reserve Unive...
Crocodile Chemistry es un laboratorio de química virtual en el que se pueden simular experimentos de forma fácil y segura, representar resultados en gráficos y observar reacciones en 3D. Un simulador innovador. Después de seleccionar los recipientes, matraces, probetas, pipetas y demás elementos, de manera cómoda, desde la amplia librería de objetos, se pueden seleccionar las sustancias químicas y los reactivos y se puede iniciar el experimento emulando con total realismo el proceso.Puedes modificar los parámetros de casi todos los componentes, como por ejemplo el tamaño de las partículas, la concentración o la tasa de flujo de un gas.
The Open Chemistry project is a collection of open source, cross platform libraries and applications for the exploration, analysis and generation of chemical data. The project builds upon various efforts by collaborators and innovators in open chemistry such as the Blue Obelisk, Quixote and the associated projects. We aim to improve the state of the art, and facilitate the open exchange of ideas and exchange of chemical data leveraging the best technologies ranging from quantum chemistry codes, molecular dynamics, informatics and visualization.
A Colorado State University chemistry professor has developed several patent-pending chemical processes that would create sustainable bioplastics from renewable resources for use on everything from optical fibers and contact lenses to furniture and automobile parts.
X-ray technology helps researchers reconstruct networks of interaction between ancient cultures. Working primarily with obsidian — a natural volcanic glass used historically for weapons and tools — the Max Lab team is able to tell where people travelled, who they interacted with and how craft traditions, such as agriculture, may have spread.
