Everybody learn how to click

Till February this year, ‘Click Chemistry’ was still able to appear in the Top Topic, of the Essential Science Indicators. It is 6 years after the phrase was used in the pioneer review on ACIE (2001, 40, 2004-2021. DOI: 10.1002/1521-3773(20010601)40:11<2004::AID-ANIE2004>3.0.CO;2-5), so I thought the time has gone when you can easily put your communication on Adv Mater or ACIE only by tagging it with the word ‘click’; the field has become just as ordinary as what any average journal may oversee. Even Sigma-Aldrich has caught up to host a specific page for its click chemicals. But it is still heated in 2007, and there is recently a tutorial review on Chem Soc Rev (DOI: 10.1039/b613014n). Someone did some lbl polyelectrolyte capsules, something everyone should know for quite a while and Langmuir would probably refuse to accept, and he published it on Nano Lett (DOI: 10.1021/nl070698f), only because he clicked between the layers a bit.

So everybody is to learn something about how to click your reaction into an ACIE VIP paper or something like that.
