Having already looked at the chemistry behind the smell of rain, here’s a look at some of the science behind thunderstorms. How does lightning happen, what gives it its blue-violet tinge, and what does it have to do with plant growth?
Mummies are, perhaps, the easiest go-to costume for Halloween: grab some bandages, drape yourself in them, and job done. However, there’s a little more behind the traditional embalming process used in Ancient Egypt, as well as a surprising amount of chemistry. Here we take a look at the chemicals ...
The Chemistry of Blood
Fake blood is an essential accessory if you’re going for a gory halloween look with your costume this year. There’s a lot of chemistry in the substance it sets out to mimic; we can explain the colour, smell, and different types of blood with the aid of chemistry (and some biology thrown in for ...
Today’s graphic takes a look at the research ofKent Griffith(@kentjgriffith), a PhD student from the University of Cambridge who’s currently looking into developingadvanced lithium ion batteries to power our phones, laptops, and more.
The 2018 World Cup kicked off! Here’s some of the chemistry you can look out for over the next month; polymers make up the ball and the shirts, and chemistry also has a part to play in the vanishing spray that referees will be using during the games.
Poison & Medicine
The vibrancy of foxgloves belies their poisonous nature – ingesting even a small amount of the plant can cause unpleasant effects, and in some cases death. However, the same compounds that make it poisonous can also have medicinal uses. This graphic takes a look at them in detail.
International Women’s Day
International Women's Day was celebrated last week. As last year, we would like to introduce you to fascinating women of science. This year, the focus will be on women researchers who are still active and who have helped to advance the world with their research.
As we head into 2018, it’s time to take a look back at some of the biggest science news stories over the past year. This year’s science news featured poisonous frogs, battery fires, element creation, and more!
The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
The first of this year’s Nobel Prizes in Science was announced today! This year’s prize in physiology or medicine was awarded to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young for their research into the molecular mechanisms behind circadian rhythms
The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics
This year’s second Nobel Prize in the sciences was awarded today. The prize for physics was awarded to researchers who contributed to the observation of gravitational waves, ripples in space-time that were originally created by colliding black holes over a billion years ago.
