WELCOME TO THE
Jingxiang Yang, Xiaolong Zhu, Mengdi Qiu, et al. publish an article on “Inverse Correlation between Lethality and Thermodynamic Stability of Contact Insecticide Polymorphs” in Crystal Growth & Design, describing the insecticide activity of lindane polymorphs toward Drosophila melanogaster…..
Yuantao Li, Sishuang Tang, Anna Yusov and co-workers report in Nature Communications an approach to molecular structure determination that relies on a versatile toolkit of guanidinium organosulfonate hydrogen-bonded host frameworks that form crystalline inclusion compounds with target molecules for which crystal structure determination can be elusive. Link to article here.
Xiaodi Zhong and Molecular Design Institute co-workers demonstrated that properly sized polymer particles incorporated in potassium hydrogen phthalate crystals during growth serve as dislocation generators. Link to article here.
Xiaolong Zhu, Jingxiang Yang and Megndi Qiu and co-workers report in the Journal of the American Chemical Society fast-acting crystalline and amorphous forms of contact insecticides against Drosophila and Anopheles and Aedes mosquitoes, linking their effectiveness to the stability of the solid forms while rediscovering a compound that was developed in Germany during World War II, but vanished from public health considerations..
