2 Earth science: Probing the core's light elements. Duffy, Thomas Nature. 479(7374):480-481, November 24, 2011. DOI: 10.1038/479480a Figure 1 | Cross-section of Earth's interior. Depths for the various regions are indicated on the left and corresponding pressures (in gigapascals) on the right. The core is mainly composed of iron (Fe) and nickel (Ni), with some unknown lighter elements. By comparing laboratory measurements with seismic data, Huang et al.3 place new constraints on the identity of these light elements in the core.

Cordier et al. 1 have analysed images produced using electron backscatter diffraction to identify grain-boundary disclinations in olivine aggregates. Shown here is a cross- section of a sample deformed at high stress. Different colours denote different crystallographic orientations of the crystals that make up the aggregate.

Reformulating table salt.When sodium chloride (NaCl) is squeezed by diamond anvils at high temperatures and under Cl- or Na-rich conditions, compounds such as NaCl3 or Na3Cl can be formed. J Ibáñez Insa Science 2013;342:1459-1460 Published by AAAS

Metal-organic framework (MOF) structures are amenable to expansion and incorporation of multiple functional groups within their interiors. (A) The isoreticular expansion of MOFs maintains the network’s topology by using an expanded version of the parent organic linker. Examples of catalysis in MOFs are shown in the large space created by IRMOF-74-XI; Me is a methyl group. (B) Conceptual illustration of a multivariate MOF (MTV-MOF) whose pores are decorated by heterogeneous mixtures of functionalities that arrange in specific sequences. (Background) Optical image of zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF) crystals.
