Literature Digest

The “Literature Digest” section of the Chemical Information Bulletin is designed to highlight recent articles by or of interest to the CINF membership.  If you have recently authored an article, please tell us about it!  If you have read an article that interested you and that you think would interest others, we would be delighted to hear about it, as well.  Just send us the reference, and we’ll be happy to review it for inclusion in this column!

The following articles were published since 2011, and were assembled by Song Yu in the month of February.
