I just wanted to point you in the direction of some more chemistry offerings from NPG that have just hit the airwaves.
First up is the latest edition of the podcast – I’m sure it’s already popped in to your iTunes libraries, but for the few of you out there who don’t subscribe, you can visit our ChemPod homepage and feast upon the goodies there. The latest instalment includes an interview with Vince Rotello about his work that is featured on the cover of the September issue of Nature Chemistry as well as a studio chat with yours truly about my impressions of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting that was held in Germany earlier in the summer. There are also segments about ripping electrons from molecules, DNA circuit boards and how best to store hydrogen if you want to use it as fuel in your car.
Second, the first two videos from our ‘Nobel reactions’ series from the aforementioned Lindau meeting are now available, and the remainder will be released over the coming few weeks. Keep an eye out for the conversations between the young researchers and Agre, Ernst & Tsien, and Schrock. These are freely available to view on our website.
Finally, just a quick note to let you know that former Sceptical Chymist blogger Retread now has his own blog – you can read his latest musings on the teaching of organic chemistry to medical students over there now.
