Hello again, and thanks for another great #RealTimeChem week over on twitter!

This week we learned that we look backward quite a bit to inform the present and the future. No takers on predicting the 2030 Nobels, but lots of fascinating #OldTimeChem!

• Check out all Stuart Cantrill’s (@stuartcantrill) tweets in this hashtag – an awesome look at a 1985 issue from Angewandte Chemie for Future Day.

• Take a look at links to more on the trends over time from FX Coudert (@fxcoudert).

• Michael Seery ‏(@seerymk) points us to a great Mole Day post from Thony Christie (@rmathematicus), on the fantastical and flawed Phlogiston Theory.

• Looking at the not-too-distant past, Brooke Magnanti (@belledejour_uk) reviews the rise and fall of Rational Drug Design.

• In an episode of Stop Think Science! (@stoptnkscience), John and Ian are joined by PJ Persichini for a great #OldTimeChem chat.

• From Под тягой (@orgchemby), a look at the contributions of the Fischers (have Google Translate handy—a great read!).

• From Peter Kenny (@pwk2013), coverage from schwefeläther to octanol, from von Bibra to Collander and Golumbic!

In #CurrentTimeChem — ICYMI:

• Day 3 @CompoundChem winner: Nadine Borduas (@nadineborduas)’s work on Amines in the Atmosphere – many sources and implications for human health.

• Day 4 @CompoundChem winner: Maksim Fomich’s efforts to treat diseases with deuterated fatty acids.

• Day 5 @CompoundChem winner: Andrew Davis and making molecules with light!

• Now, back to my mouth watering over all the #RealTimeChem Cook Off tweets (and treats) – check out #whatscooking!

Did I miss anything? Let me know at Thanks again to all the Bloggers and Tweeters!

A field as broad as chemistry is cross-disciplinary by nature. Chemistry researchers, in their work or study, may encounter issues in materials science, biochemistry, chemical engineering, or a wide range of other disciplines. In addition to the major areas of organic and inorganic chemistry, Elsevier content covers advanced topics such as quantum chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical and theoretical chemistry, energy generation and storage, nano-chemistry, surface and interface chemistry, and environmental chemistry. This content is available over a spectrum of formats that includes journals, books, eBooks, undergraduate textbooks, multi-volume reference works, and innovative databases and online products like Reaxys.
