New Year, New Elements: Preview of the #RealTimeChem Week 2016 Blog Carnival
The leaves are changing here in New England, and that means… it’s almost time for the Blog Carnival in celebration of #RealTimeChem week 2016!
We here at Elsevier Chemistry (@ElsChemistry) are excited to host again, and will be putting up round-ups here on SciTechConnect. Bloggers, be sure to tweet links to your posts with the hashtag above or #NewElemChem in order to be included.
This year, the week will begin on Monday, October 31. Dr. Jay’s excellent theme, suggested by Nadine (@nadineborduas), is New Elements in Chemistry. It seems appropriate, as last year looked both backwards and forward, for blogs this year to take a step back and look at the new things we see today: in the lab, in our personal lives, in grad school, and on the periodic table—not to mention out in the world with implications for scientists around the globe. Much has happened in the past 365 days, and so we’re looking forward to hearing the good, the bad, the disappointing, and the promising.

Most of the major scientific challenges of the 21st century — including sustainable energy resources, water quality issues, and process efficiency in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries — revolve around chemical engineering. Elsevier’s broad content in this area examines topics such as bioprocessing, polymer nano-composites, biomass gasification and pyrolysis, computational fluid dynamics, industrial proteins, catalysis, and many others with great significance and applicability to researchers today. Our books, eBooks, and online tools provide foundational information to students, and cutting-edge coverage to advance corporate research and development.
