Discuss: Chemistry By Design
« on: 16/08/2011 18:01:03 »
Are designer molecules poised to take us into a new chemical dimension?  This week, we explore how, long before the bunsen burner gets lit, computer aided chemistry can enable us to create in silico imaginary new molecules, reactions and designer catalysts.  We also delve into how chemicals are manufactured on a massive scale with a visit to a plant making zeolites.  And in the news, how hydrogen-metabolising bugs can supercharge deep-sea mussels, how reprogrammed immune system cells can hunt-down cancer, and nature's stock exchange - how plants and fungi develop a subsoil free-market economy to trade resources.
