This week's C&EN

A few of the articles from this week's C&EN:


  1. Please check the link for Pd(OAc)2.

  2. A good question to ask is "Are you a turtle?"

  3. Re Nobel snubs: The Dyson quote actually comes from Jocelyn Bell Burnell who said it to him about herself. Bell's is of course one of the great Nobel Prize exclusions of all time (and a pretty obvious case of sexism and hierarchy, since her PhD advisor Anthony Hewish got it while she was left out in spite of making the actual discovery - of pulsars in this case).
