Supplements that target fat loss … metals that protect themselves … ammonia air pollution … decoys that stop viruses … beefed-up plastic wrap … a vitamin for cancer prevention … new fuels … a kinder, gentler aspirin …and more at the 220th national meeting of the American Chemical Society

A popular dietary supplement promises to help people lose fat and keep it off. A different approach to making drugs yields a kinder, gentler aspirin. A new gasoline additive packs the punch of MTBE without the environmental threat.

These are but a few of the findings that will be presented at the 220th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. The meeting will be held here August 20-24 in the Washington Convention Center and surrounding hotels.
