In 2012, the declining efficiency and increasing cost of pharmaceutical research was noted in a phenomenon termed Erooms law, to distinguish it from the efficiency of Moores law in transistor development.
Though the reasons for this phenomenon are myriad and varied, the efficiency of drug development and commercialization could be greatly improved by the development of better paradigms... More >

Polyphosphorus units are an important class of compound and isolobal to carbon-based relatives. Because of the lone pairs at the phosphorus atoms, the five-fold symmetric cyclo-P5 ring of the pentaphosphaferrocenes [CpRFe(η5-P5)] enables the use of these complexes in unique supramolecular aggregations with Lewis acidic transition metal moieties to form unprecedented giant spherical molecules...
