Hottest Chemistry Paper May 2012

The most popular paper as measured by unique clicks at ChemFeeds for May was work using rotoxanes as metal-organic frameworks by the Stephen J. Loeb group. Assuming you’re not in the UC system and you have access to Nature Chemistry you can view it here, “Metal–organic frameworks with dynamic interlocked components” by V. Nicholas Vukotic et al.

April’s winner of hottest abstract as measured from clicks at Chem Feeds will come as no surprise to those who have their pulse on the current chemical literature; the paper was heavily covered by the science press. The work was inspired from the Harry Potter novel “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets“. You can read Wei Shen and Miaosi Li‘s work here: Paper-Based Blood Typing Device That Reports Patient’s Blood Type “in Writing”.

Enjoy the reading.

Most Popular Chemistry Paper for March 2012

Like January 2012, the most accessed paper for March 2012 on ChemFeeds was a small feature in Angewandte highlighting winners receiving recognition for their work, in this case the ACS 2012 National award. The winners in no particular order were David O’Hagan, Arnold L. Rheingold, Philip P. Power, Jonathan A. Ellman, Christopher A. Reed, Stephen Hanessian, Mitsuo Kira, Enrique Iglesia (not to be confused with the famous singer), and Raymond E. Schaak.

However, the honor of being the most highly accessed original science article was shared by two different JACS papers:

Reisman graphical abstract
Aiwen Lei graphical abstract

The paper with the most eye-catching graphical abstract goes to Young-Jae Oh and Ki-Hun Jeong for their Advanced Materials paper titled, “Glass Nanopillar Arrays with Nanogap-Rich Silver Nanoislands for Highly Intense Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering“.
