To conquer COVID-19, create the perfect pill.
As COVID-19 continues to take a global toll, drugmakers are racing to develop antiviral pills that could turn the tide of the pandemic. But the road to developing an antiviral treatment is long and hard. Often, promising drug candidates never make it to patients. Learn about the most advanced SARS-CoV-2 antiviral candidates and what makes drugging viruses such a challenge.

Glyco-RNA found on cell surfaces.
Carolyn Bertozzi and colleagues report that RNA molecules can be decked with sugar molecules and position themselves in cell membranes, sticking out into the surroundings. Early evidence suggests they could be there to signal the immune system.

How a chemist’s book changed the life of graphic artist John Barnett.
PEOPLE
How a chemist’s book changed the life of graphic artist John Barnett.
Chemist Primo Levi’s The Periodic Table closes with a chapter called “Carbon,” which tracks a single atom through time and space. Graphic designer and illustrator John Barnett has now adapted “Carbon” into a stand-alone book, where he retells the story in his own words.

There’s no need to control PFAS as a class, industry scientists say.
PERSISTENT POLLUTANTS
There’s no need to control PFAS as a class, industry scientists say.
Only “commercially relevant” PFAS, numbered in the hundreds rather than thousands, need to be screened for regulation, industrial chemists say. Their analysis counters a policy proposal in the EU that would restrict production and use of most PFAS as a single class.

Betting big on the smallest molecule.
SUSTAINABILITY
Betting big on the smallest molecule.
Europe’s politicians and industrialists are firmly behind low-carbon hydrogen. The EU’s goal is that green or blue hydrogen will cover almost a quarter of the bloc’s energy needs by 2050 and that 5.4 million jobs will be created in the process.

Biphenylene network zipped together.
NANOMATERIALS
Biphenylene network zipped together.
Researchers created this biphenylene network by zipping together strings of 2,5-difluoro-para-phenylene on a gold surface using a dehydrofluorination reaction. Scanning probe studies of the allotrope indicate that it is metallic. This means that it could be used to make wires for carbon-based circuits in the future.

Why are antivirals so hard to develop?
With limited financial incentives, few good targets, and a lack of reliable animal models, the field of antiviral drug discovery has lagged. The COVID-19 pandemic might be awakening the world to the problem.
