Here’s the weekly summary of both new chemistry research and studies that have been in the news. Sorry it’s a day late this week – this is due to Bluehost’s servers running into some weekend-long downtime which took the site out of action completely until the early hours of this morning. This week features news on a failed Alzheimer’s drug, the compounds behind the aroma of liquorice, and more. As always, links to further articles and original research papers are provided below.
Note: links to studies behind a journal paywall are indicated with (£). Studies without this symbol are open access, and can be accessed and read for free. Asterisked studies are free but require logging in to read.
