Metabolite Identification - The TV Show
« on: May 14, 2007, 01:32:27 AM »
This was mentioned awhile ago by Bethany Halford in the Comments Section of the ever rancorous TheChemBlog. The video is produced as a chemists' CSI TV episode. I realize most of you don't have a background in metabolite identification[1], but it's still a rather acute chemistry(analytical chemistry) spoof. Click screen shot of video below.

The video is an advertisement gimmick for Thermo Fischer Scientific, obviously enough ;). A link to the original video can be viewed from this web page:

[1]: Not saying, I have a background in metabolite identification, but I do have more experience with it than you might expect for a nuclear chemist.

Note 1: Also covered by Closeted Chemistry
Note 2: Made an entertaining game room for the graduate student procrastinators in the audience:

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

"Say you're in a [chemical] plant and there's a snake on the floor. What are you going to do? Call a consultant? Get a meeting together to talk about which color is the snake? Employees should do one thing: walk over there and you step on the friggin� snake." - Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of Glaxosmithkline, June 2006
