Chemistry stuff from the week 28/5 - 3/6/12

Ununquadium and ununhexium are no more - Livermorium and Flovelium are now official!
[video] Olympicene - a five-ringed carbon structure - is the smallest atomic structure known to man

An IndiumGalliumArsenide solar cell has been demonstrated to work at 43.5% efficiency!
In comparison, fuel in the tank of a car is converted to motion at an efficiency in the 20s.
Unlike the graphene cells mentioned last week, however, Indium Gallium and Arsenic are not abundant enough for these to ever be dirt cheap
