We are chemistry, covered.
In this special issue we look at the eight ′holy grails′ of chemistry. 25 years ago some of the world′s leading chemists – many still active in their field today – published a series of articles in the journal Accounts of Chemical Research. These articles tackled eight of the toughest and most important challenges in chemistry at the time, including room temperature superconductivity, tracking the transition state and the creation of designer protein. In this special issue we find out how far we have come in the last quarter of a century. We seek the grail.
