The National Chemical Database Service Allowing Depositions   4 comments

The UK National Chemical Database Service (available here) has been online a few years now, since 2012. When I worked at RSC I was intimately involved in writing the technical response to the EPSRC call for the service and, in this blog, I outlined a lot of intentions for the project. A key part of […]

Recently I posted that Google must have changed their algorithm and as a result introduced a lot of new articles to my profile automagically that were nothing to do with me. It took work to prune them off and hopefully they do not reappear. Tonight I went through the process of updating the past few […]

I adopted Mendeley very early and was a defender of their decision to join Elsevier. I didn’t beat them up in the mediasphere for moving from the Open start-up to the publishers corporate mode. I did that myself when ChemSpider was acquired by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC is a charity but is also a publisher). […]

Increasing Noise in my Google Scholar Citations Profile   Leave a comment

I have always been impressed with Google Scholar Citations. When I first set up my profile I was impressed with how fast the site allowed me to set up my profile (available at https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=OQEPQAAAAJ) and the overall accuracy that was evident in terms of recognizing the articles I had authored or co-authored. There was very little […]

Zika Virus and a hypothesis regarding the impact of Pyriproxyfen   2 comments

I have been interested in the Zika Virus ever since I heard about it while visiting Brazil last year to give a talk at the Brazilian Natural Products conference. What I did not expect was the incredible surge in worldwide attention that Zika would attract. I am grateful to have been included in the work […]

Transform Tox Testing Challenge – Innovating for Metabolism   Leave a comment

Scientists from EPA, NTP and NCATS have used high-throughput screening (HTS) assays to evaluate the potential health effects of thousands of chemicals. The Transform Tox Testing Challenge: Innovating for Metabolism is calling on innovative thinkers to find new ways to incorporate physiological levels of chemical metabolism into HTS assays. Since current HTS assays do not […]

Molecular Microscopy Takes the Next Step – Monitoring a Reaction One Molecule at a Time   Leave a comment

A new paper hit Nature Chemistry today “Reversible Bergman cyclization by atomic manipulation” (The paper will be featured on the cover of the March Issue). I have so much appreciation for what these scientists are doing. Selfishly I want to continue to applaud them for the breakthrough science that they continue to produce. I have […]
