ONS Solubility Challenge on Sigma-Aldrich tech sheet

The Open Notebook Science Solubility Challenge has made it onto the Solubility Information for Products technical sheet of Sigma-Aldrich:
Sigma-Aldrich are currently collaborating with Nature and Submeta in an Open Notebook Science Challenge. This is a project aimed at facilitating the generation of solubility information for chemicals. Please follow this link 'Open Notebook Science Challenge - Solubility' for more information on this project.
This is a great example of how synergies between academia, industry, publishers and foundations can take place quickly and in the open.

There is some other interesting information on that page - notably a table translating written descriptions of solubility terminology - like "freely soluble" - into numbers.
