Hubert Girault, Chemical Science Associate Editor for analytical science, met up with RSC Publisher Niamh O’Connor and Hirofumi Seike (RSC Representative, Japan) in Kyoto on Sunday to host a dinner for leading physical and analytical chemists.
The group are in Japan for the IUPAC International Congress on Analytical Sciences 2011, which is on until 26th May.
Obviously there will be lots of discussion at the meeting about the best and latest advances in the analytical sciences. Here’s my pick of some of the most exciting recent Chemical Science articles in this area:
Heavy water hydration of mannose: the anomeric effect in solvation, laid bare
