It’s that time again – time that you can listen to the chemistry@nature podcast: The ChemPod. You can download it from that link, or from iTunes.
As you might expect, we’ve got interviews with newly minted Nobel Laureates Ada Yonath and Venkatraman Ramakrishnan. They wax lyrical about their work teasing out the structure of the ribosome and how they’re being reprogrammed to use artificial amino acids.
There are also interviews with Guillermo Bazan and Ting Xu, whose latest papers have just been published in Nature Chemistry and Nature Materials respectively. Bazan discusses his success using microwaves to make polymers for solar cells, and Xu about stimuli-responsive nanocomposites.
And the Sceptical Chymist’s very own Andy Mitchinson chats to host Mark Peplow about the latest chemistry papers in Nature.
