  A Golden Glow  Fluorescing "artificial atoms" could act as biological labels and nanoscale optoelectronics according to researchers speaking at the 228th national meeting of the American Chemical Society at the end of August.
  Sexy Elephant Protein  Elephant sex is quite surprising, not because of the sheer bulk of the beasts involved and the forces they employ, but because of the rather circuitous route taken by the sex pheromones exuded by the female.
  That INChI Feeling  Over the years, IUPAC names have become increasingly cumbersome. But, Dmitrii Tchekhovskoi, Steve Stein, and Steve Heller of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have worked to develop a means for identifying chemical structures on a computer without having to work out a complex, standard nomenclature for each one.
  Lighting Up with Nanowires  Charles Lieber and his colleagues at Harvard University have recently made a breakthrough in the area of nanowires.
