Lots of great stuff this week:
- A really comprehensive look at the West Virginia MCHM mess. I really like the framing of using ACS members who are living in Charleston. (by Alexander H. Tullo, Jyllian Kemsley, Cheryl Hogue, Susan R. Morrissey)
- I would sure like to know what experts in the chemical processing industries think what the best practices to prevent these sorts of leaks is. How do you test for leaks (or potential leaks, anyway?)
- Organometallics clears Reto Dorta of wrongdoing (?); the buried lede is that John Gladysz was asked to resign as editor-in-chief. This is very interesting. (by Carmen Drahl)
- More coverage of the U.S. Navy's latest chemical processing plant, i.e. the Field Deployable Hydrolysis Systems on the MV Cape Ray. (by Glenn Hess)
- A sort of kooky letter about the forensics surrounding the Annie Dookhan case.
- This Sarah Everts piece with a chemist-turned-professional-smeller is amazing.
- Fun interview with Adam Engel (the chemistry graduate helped out by Jon Stewart) by Linda Wang.
