DeepDyve – rent journal articles
Search across millions of articles from thousands of journals and preview any article for free. If you would like to go beyond the abstract and read the full article, you can rent the article and view it at DeepDyve for 24 hours or more, for as little as \$0.99. "Rented" articles can only be viewed at our site and cannot be downloaded, printed or shared. In exchange for this limited access, DeepDyve is able to offer our users the ability to read the full article for up to 90% less than the cost of purchasing the PDF.

World chemical outlook
From C&En, 1/10/2011 cover story: "Last year turned out to be a pretty good year for the chemical enterprise. After having drawn down inventories to the bottom during the recession, consumers of everything from melamine to mass spectrometers had to buy again. Demand for chemicals rose 5.2% in the U.S. and a whopping 10.0% in Europe." Read the full story here:

Triblock spheres
A simple and general method for constructing complex structures using self-assemble has been developed by materials scientists at the University of Illinois. The work, involves tiny colloidal particles called triblock Janus spheres, and represents a significant step towards fabricating non-trivial, non-obvious structures from very simple building blocks, the developers say. "People know a lot about how to do [self-assembly] with molecules - soaps for example - but scientists and engineers know very little about how to make it happen with particles," team leader Steve Granick says. "Particles are very different from molecules, they're big, they're non-flexible, and they have lots of critically different materials properties." He adds that the approach might allow researchers in the future to mix together a soup of particles and fish out a designer computer chip. "Someday maybe we could have a soup of different components, remove some of it, and there would be a microelectronic chip," he explains. "It's a brand new area. The materials are so different that the structures that they form will be different."
Triblock spheres provide a simple path to complex structures
