Chempod ? September/October 2009 show ? listen to it today

In this episode ribosomes are the stars of the show, as we chat to two
scientists awarded this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry for figuring
out their structure, and find out how they're being�reprogrammed to
use artificial amino acids.

Plus: polymer-based solar cells, nanoparticle assembly,�and a round-up
of the best chemistry papers in Nature from editor Andy Mitchinson.

Nanoscience and Technology: A Collection of Reviews from
Nature Journals

This book contains 35 high impact review articles on nanoscience
and nanotechnology, written by leading authorities, that were first
published in various Nature journals. It covers, comprehensively,
areas in nanoscience and technology ranging from basic research
(such as single-molecule devices) to applications (such as
It is a valuable reference for chemists, physicists, materials
scientists and anyone interested in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
