Caption: A rendering of the molecular structure of a new species of iron, iron VI. The new form of iron has just two electrons in its outermost shell, making it a potentially valuable new catalyst for industry and biomedicine. An international team of chemists recently discovered the new form of iron and are publishing a paper describing the element in the June 1, 2006 online edition of Science, called Science Express. The lead author of the study is John F. Berry, an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow at Germany’s Max-Planck Institute for Bioinorganic Chemistry in Mülheim who recently was named an assistant professor of chemistry at UW-Madison.
