Some of my favorite copper compounds (all synthesized from copper metal). From left to right: copper (II) carbonate, copper (II) sulfate pentahydrate, anhydrous copper (II) acetate, copper (II) chloride dihydrate, and anhydrous copper (II) chloride.

Trying to crystallize a compound from ethyl-acetate/cycohexane solvent mixture. 
The optimal concentration of cyclohexane (50%) was in the third test tube, where most of the compound crystallized out.

I understand science! Physics is maths, biology is history, and chemistry is magic!

If, like me, you’re currently suffering from the joys of hay fever, you might be interested in learning a little about the chemicals behind its cause and treatment. Read more about them here.

The World Cup kicks of this evening - but the ball being used wouldn’t be possible without the help of some synthetic materials. Here’s a look at the different polymers used in its manufacture, about which you can read more here: http://wp.me/p4aPLT-jT
