I forget that ChemFeeds allows me a very unique window into the popularity of various chemistry articles across chemistry publishers (e.g., ACS, RSC, Nature). For February, the most popular article was an editorial penned by Roald Hoffmann critiquing the chemistry community’s response to the 2011 chemistry Nobel prize.
For those that need to be reassured that it is okay for molecular biologists to receive chemistry Nobel prizes then I encourage you to read it.
On a side note, the most popular paper of January 2012 was “New Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences” also in Angewandte. It is not a particular interesting article, but as 10% of ChemFeeds users are based in China it is not surprising.
