  • Crystal mysteries spiral deeper

    New York University chemists have discovered crystal growth complexities, which at first glance appeared to confound 50 years of theory and deepened the mystery of how organic crystals form. But, appearances can be deceiving. Their findings, which appear in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sci more

  • Multifunctional 3D shape-memory materials

    Chinese scientists have found a simple way to produce multifunctional 3D materials by developing a polymer scaffold that ‘remembers’ its shape and can be used as a host for functional nanoparticles. The shape-memory polymer scaffold can host a wide range of functional nanoparticles, enabling the for more

  • When boron butts in

    For Nature and chemists alike, making atmospheric nitrogen available for the formation of more complex nitrogen compounds is both essential and difficult. Paul Chirik and Scott Semproni at Princeton University, USA, report the first examples of the use of group 4 metallocene complexes for boron–nitr more

  • Colombia Agribusiness Report Q3 2012

    BMI View: In May, the long-stalled free trade agreement (FTA) between Colombia and the US finally was put into action. The FTA was first signed in 2006 but had not been ratified owing to continuing concerns in the US over Colombia's human rights record. The pact eliminates tariffs on 77% of agricult more

  • Spain Petrochemicals Report Q1 2012

    Aggressive fiscal austerity, rising interest rates, stubbornly high unemployment and ongoing deleveraging within the private sector will keep petrochemicals output and consumption well below potential over the medium term, according to BMI’s latest Spain Petrochemicals Report. With the domestic ma more
