OBC 10th anniversary art gallery

A selection of images suggested for the cover of OBC’s 10th anniversary themed issue

With the 10th anniversary themed issue of OBC now online we thought we would share with you a couple of the other cover suggestions that were put forward by authors for this issue.

Below is the rather striking suggestion from Brimble et al. The tree and leaves represent nature, and its dew, superimposed with their spiroacetal-triazoles, drops into a pool of tablets representing the development of new therapeutic agents.

This second suggestion comes from Luh et al., featuring a decameric ladderphane in recognition of the 10 years that OBC has been published.
