The phoenix finally rises from the ashes…


Every research paper is special and it’s the source of great satisfaction when it finally gets published. Seeing our latest article “A Photoresponsive Supramolecular G-Quadruplex” finally published is particularly satisfying because of the long arduous road to publication. Our internal code name for this manuscript was “Phoenix” because of the parallel between the mythical beast (burning down and raising from the ashes) and the supramolecule described in the article, which is destroyed after photoirradiation and eventually leads to a new (heteromeric) supramolecule to rise from the ashes. What we didn’t know the first time we submitted this work for publication was that the manuscript would ended up being “burned down to ashes” by the referees at multiple journals before finally raising for good. The whole process was very humbling and tested our character, but in the end, the final product was a much refined piece of work for which we should be proud of. And now, to continue writing with the hope that our next submissions don’t have to travel such a rough path.

  1. I noticed your page’s ranking in google’s search results is very low.

    You are loosing a lot of traffic. You need hi
    PageRank backlinks to rank in top 10. I know – buying
    them is too expensive. It is better to own them.
    I know how to do that, just google it:
