Welcome to issue 12 of MedChemComm, the last of 2012. This month we have 10 concise articles and 1 review for you to devour.
Is this review from our collection on ‘The space in-between small molecules and biologicals’ by James C. Collins and Keith James. Collins and James present a critical analysis of macrocyclization reactions published over the past three years, and based on this propose a ‘macrocyclization efficiency index, Emac,’ which would allow the community to determine the true efficiency of a macrocyclization reaction.
Emac – a comparative index for the assessment of macrocyclization efficiency
James C. Collins and Keith James
Is this concise article from Masahiro Goto and colleagues who present their investigations into developing a unique, through the skin, protein-delivery system based on a solid-in-oil nanodispersion that utilizes an oil-based vehicle of proteins.
