    The Boston Globe
    There are tens of thousands of known compounds in the physical world. Finding the right combination to create a new material, say a super-tough or ultra-light metal, can take years, if not decades, of hit-and-miss experimentation.

    Financial Times
    Further evidence that the U.K.'s stuttering manufacturing sector is regaining its footing has emerged, after an industry survey found that global industrial companies are increasingly favoring Britain as a place to source high-tech components and seek future profits.
