Funny organic molecules
« on: November 15, 2006, 01:15:51 PM »
There is a lot of funny organic chemicals :)
Perhaps what most amazing, is how creative chemists are when they are naming them.
Probably a job that goes better over a beer or maybe a vodka.
No single thing abides, but all things flow.
Fragment to fragment clings, and thus they grow
Until we know and name them.
Then by degrees they change and are no more
The things we know.
- Titus Lucretius Carus

Those are pretty cool. I have to go with Pagodane also.

You can't forget about the Nanoputians!

Isn't one of those Nanoputians a certain Mr. Al Kane??
