  • Building Our Own Molecular Machines

    Let’s talk about enzyme envy. That’s what we organic chemists experience when we stop to think about how every complex natural product in the world… Read More
  • Short Chemistry Topics

    Blogging time is tight today, but there are several interesting stories and follow-ups that I wanted to mention. For starters, I wrote here about a cyclohexane… Read More
  • Electrochemistry For All

    Phil Baran and co-workers Ming Yan and Yu Kawamata at Scripps have published an overview of what they feel is needed in synthetic organic electrochemistry, and… Read More
