Ep. 5: A story told in bones
Our bones contain chemical information about our diet, our behavior, and even our geographic origin. With the right tools, scientists can decode that information to learn about the past lives behind skeletal remains. Christine France of the Smithsonian’s Museum Conservation Institute uses stable isotope ratio analysis to help anthropologists answer questions about possible 18th-century pirates and more.

Ep. 4: Wow. This is a big meeting.
Stereo Chemistry had its recorders rolling for four days during the ACS national meeting in New Orleans in March. Listen to our latest episode to hear what brought a wide range of chemists to the meeting, including a Priestley Medal winner, a hurricane survivor, and an (in)famous duck.

Episode 3: The authors declined to discuss the work with C&EN for this story
C&EN reporter Tien Nguyen takes us inside her months-long dealings with ChemRxiv, one of chemistry’s new preprints servers. She examines the benefits, questions, and frustrations presented by the server—not the least of which was chemists unwilling to discuss their own work with us. But it’s not all doom and gloom. We kinda got a Science publication out of this story. Nominate chemists for C&EN’s Talented 12 Class of 2018: http://talented12.cenmag.org/nominate-candidates-for-2018/ All...
