Years ago, I attended a futuristic talk about the hydrogen
economy before it was “in fashion.” This post links to
an important environmental article discussing safe handling
New material science and surprising properties of
light are reported in a recent issue in the photonics
Open Science publication from the ACS comes with
SAFE HANDLING: HYDROGEN
SOURCE L. Gallagher, American Laboratory September,
2015, P. 14, “Safe Handling of Hydrogen in the Laboratory“
In addition to materials of construction, design and
specific procedures, inert gas handling facilities
are essential to purge and dilute and gas monitoring
protections and alarms must be installed and tested
regularly. See also safe handling procedures.
Hydrogen based micro-economies will emerge just as
Tesla charging stations are proliferating.

Graphene can be functionalized into a light emitter
by strategic incorporation of boron. Nano-optics and
Spin properties of light are also highlighted in recent
issue photonics Spectra.

Carolyn Bertozzi is a visible leader who heads
organizations and publications and presents her
case of pursuing careers in chemistry. Here also
is a notable effort in an open access journal. Wish
to see more of this as it is the wave of the future
and a way that society publications can compete
with commercial publications.
