Alchemical chemistry news

The Alchemist gets down and dirty with the geckos this week, or not, as the case may be. Meanwhile learns how to make multi-layered graphene flakes with ultrasound and finds caffeine, cocaine and more in ultratrace quantities in the water supply. In ancient news, we hear that Libyans have been dairy farming for at least 7000 years. The newest bond on the block is the halogen bond. Finally, PhD recognition in the form of this year’s Reaxys PhD Prize.

The Alchemist. Apols for late update this week.
