Need ideas for chemistry paper

In summary, the discussion revolves around finding a recent news article related to chemistry that includes at least three chemical compounds and writing a paper about it. Suggestions were made to look for such articles in media reports or in sources like New Scientist, with a reminder to focus on the three chemical compounds rather than the overall "interestingness" of the topic. A humorous suggestion was also made to use the name of athlete Roger Clemens, but with the caution to include the word "alleged".

"Interesting" is not the correct focus. The essential specification is "3 chemical compounds".
