ChemPod 6

The new chemistry podcast from Nature is now online and can be found here.

In this special nanotechnology show, we discover how a team from MIT are getting nanoparticles into cells, do a spot of interstellar chemistry with an escaping sugar molecule, issue a health warning for those working with carbon nanotubes, and we take a look at the latest online tool helping chemists get hold of chemical information – for free.

Oh yeah… I nearly forgot… Neil and I make our podcasting debuts, calling into the studio to chat about the travel plans of the Nature Chemistry team now that conference season is upon us.

Gavin Armstrong

Senior Editor, Nature Chemistry

I've been an editor at Nature Chemistry since April 2008 having worked at the Royal Society of Chemistry (at the Journal of Materials Chemistry and Soft Matter). I had a full head of dark hair when I joined. I graduated from the University of Leeds with an MChem in 2002, and stayed there to do a PhD in nonlinear chemical dynamics. My research focused on pattern formation and travelling waves in autocatalytic chemical systems. At Nature Chemistry I handle what would traditionally be called physical chemistry e.g. spectroscopy, theory, catalysis, reaction dynamics, photochemistry....
