Here’s the weekly summary of both new chemistry research and studies that have been in the news. This week features research on how goldfish and carp can survive without oxygen for long periods of time, the US overturning a ban on refrigerants than can contribute to climate change, 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.
