Molecule of the Month
Marcus picks a molecule each month to share with you – this month’s is the special ingredient of super glue – Ethyl Cyanoacrylate!
Phil picks a lesser known example of great research or a great personality – from Agnes Pockels writing to a Lord asking him to publish her kitchen-based lab work to a man who was so good at doing astronomy from his farm that he ended up working for an observatory and discovering Pluto!
A Periodic Drama
Join Marcus on a tour of the periodic table – highlighting some of the crucial elements you might not have heard of.
Marcus’ Ph.D. in chemistry involved absolutely no real chemicals! His research used computers to work out and predict what molecules might do – and torture them until we understand how they work!
