Using Metals To Change the Colors of Natural Dyes  Jennifer E. Mihalick and Kathleen M. Donnelly
Metal salts (mordants) are used to produce different colors in fabrics dyed with tea leaves or marigold flowers. This experiment is especially suitable for nonscience majors and can be used to introduce polymers.

The Discovery and Development of Cisplatin  Rebecca A. Alderden, Matthew D. Hall, and Trevor W. Hambley
Cisplatin is currently one of the most widely used anticancer drugs in the world. The unlikely events surrounding the discovery of its anticancer activity, subsequent introduction into the clinic, and the continuing research into platinum compounds is the subject of this review.

Photosystem II Oxygen-Evolving Complex  William F. Coleman
Both introductory texts and texts for upper-level inorganic chemistry courses are shifting the emphasis in their coverage of transition metal chemistry from classical Werner complexes to those that exhibit some form of catalytic activity. This is of particular importance to bioinorganic chemistry, a now mature area of the science, but one that is still underrepresented in the undergraduate curriculum. Derrick L. Howard, Arthur D. Tinoco, Gary W. Brudvig, John S. Vrettos, and Bertha Connie Allen address this issue in their paper Catalytic Oxygen Evolution by a Bioinorganic Model of the Photosystem II Oxygen-Evolving Complex by a dimanganese complex that is proposed as a model for the four-manganese center in Photosystem II. The featured molecules for May are the model compound in the proposed mechanism for oxygen production.
