Want to be challenged? - Write an essay on your favorite element.

Unfortunately you cannot submit new essays since August 1st!

Nature Chemistry encourages undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs to enter the competition, but it is also open to those slightly further on in their careers. To submit an essay, however, it must be no more than 5 years since the author has completed their final training appointment (Ph.D. or postdoctoral position) as of the 1 August 2011.
