- C&EN's Global Top 50 chemical firms -- did you know that Formosa Plastics is the 6th largest chemical company in the world, by sales? I didn't.
- I found this article on Professor Alan Kozikowski's skepticism on CNS drugs and psychiatry to be very interesting. As a starting point, I've not met a single CNS med chemist would would voluntarily take a CNS drug unless it were absolutely necessary.
- Lisa Jarvis' article on Martin Mackay's moves at AZ was interesting, too. There's a lot of bold predictions of success there by Mackay.
- OK, that's worth it: C&EN covers ACS' push into entrepreneurship with the Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP) and the Entrepreneurial Resources Center (ERC). " Twenty chemical start-up companies have been granted admission into ERC. Members involved in both of these programs have full access to all ACS journals and to Chemical Abstract Service’s SciFinder at no cost. Members in ERC may also access experienced chemical entrepreneurs as mentors, business advisers, and potential investors." Free access to SciFinder and ACS journals?!? Wow.
