Having been struck down by a cold over the past few days, I was reminded of this old edition of Periodic Graphics that appeared in C&EN last year, which looks at the chemistry of cold medicines. I’m definitely grateful for a number of these right now! Click through to the C&EN site to view the full graphic. There’s also a post that looks at decongestants in a little more detail here, and one on throat lozenges here.
