 News-magazine Releases Top Groundbreaking News of 2014

A weekly news magazine of the American Chemical Society, Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), has reported the stories that had the greatest impact on the fields of science, policy and industrial landscape. This news, according to the magazine has such potential to influence the course of chemistry in the coming years.

One of the groundbreaking news stated by the magazine is the expansion of the genetic code. Also, something that is considered very significant is the development of inexpensive solar cells, given the current situation of fast depleting non-renewable resources of energy. The latest dreaded Ebola epidemic kept the chemists busy with the development of new treatments for tackling Ebola.


Science activists, on account of regulation, pressured the authorities that the products made with genetically modified organisms must be labelled. Insecticides known as neonicotinoids were found to affect the health of bees and many lawmakers urged the authorities to restrict the use of these insecticides. Also, a chemical leak in the American state of West Virginia fueled concerns among environmentalists over the lack of industrial toxicity data and oversight of the many substances used in the industry.

The challenges facing industrial giants, in the business front, including skyrocketing construction costs for the makers of chemicals was discussed. Also, the increasing calls from shareholders to boost profits through major reorganizations was also considered.
