Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry Issue 8 online now

Issue 8 of Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry has landed and has brought clouds of chemistry along with it.

OBC issue 8 front cover with clouds, rainbows & biotinylated MRI contrast agentsThe front cover highlights the work of Goran Angelovski and colleagues who report the preparation and characterization of two novel macrocyclic gadolinium pH sensitive smart contrast agents appended with a phosphonate pendant arm and either an aliphatic or aromatic linker.

OBC inside cover issue 8: E pluribus unum: isolation, structure determination, network analysis and DFT studies of a single metastable structure from a shapeshifting mixture of 852 bullvalene structural isomersOn the inside cover is the HOT article by Maggie He and Jeffrey W. Bode, which we have previously blogged about, highlighting their efforts in isolating a single bullvalene structure from a dynamic mixture of 852 isomers and their computational & network mapping investigations.
