Functionalized olefin cross-coupling to construct carbon–carbon bonds : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
Apparently, using ethanol, silane, and an iron catalyst, they can join functionalized olefins in mild conditions, allowing the much easier synthesis for a whole load of new chemicals at lower cost.

Leaky graphene oxide lets water pour through
Whoa, this stops helium leakage?!? Can we say rocket tank liners anyone? Especially around welds. Also has applications for filtering water out of stuff, such as desalination reverse osmosis membranes.

Research update: New way to store sun’s heat - MIT News Office
Rechargeable solar fuel of sorts? How fast are the kinetics on this? Energy density is something similar to Li-ion batteries so this isn't explosive levels of energy...
