Issue 5 of Green Chemistry is now available to read online.
The front cover (left) this month features work by Etienne Grau and Stefan Mecking from Konstanz, Germany. In their work, caryophyllene and humulene, renewable sesquiterpenes from clove oil, were subject to metathesis polymerization to yield non-crosslinked linear polymers with unique microstructures and low glass transition temperatures.
Read the research: Polyterpenes by ring opening metathesis polymerization of caryophyllene and humulene, E. Grau and S. Mecking, Green Chem., 2013, 15, 1112–1115, DOI: c3gc40300a
The inside front cover (right) this month features work by Thomas-Xavier Métro, Frédéric Lamaty and co-workers from Montpellier, France. Their paper describes an original liquid-assisted ball-milling methodology for peptide bond synthesis – avoiding toxic solvents and reactants – and its application to the synthesis of Leu-enkephalin.
