  • RTCW3 – Atmospheric Organic Nitrogen

RTC Week 2015 – #3: Nitrogen-Containing Atmospheric Pollutants

October 21st, 2015|

This week (19th Oct–24th October) is Real Time Chem Week (if that means nothing to you,check out their FAQ page here!). As part of it, we’re featuring the RTC Week competition-winning entries of five different chemists here on Compound Interest, with a different feature every day this week. Today’s feature takes a look at how what happens to the nitrogen-containing compounds released into the atmosphere by both natural and industrial processes, and considers some of the health effects they can cause.

RTC Week 2015 – #2: Oil Spill Clean-Ups Using Fruits & Oils

October 20th, 2015|

This week (19th Oct–24th October) is Real Time Chem Week (if that means nothing to you,check out their FAQ page here!). As part of it, we’re featuring the RTC Week competition-winning entries of five different chemists here on Compound Interest, with a different feature every day this week. Today’s feature takes a look at how we can use chemistry to help clean up oil spills – and how the chemicals we use to do so can come from some unlikely sources. […]

  • RTCW – Isotope Geochemistry

RTC Week 2015 – #1: Isotopes & The Search For Life

October 19th, 2015|

This week (19th Oct–24th October) is Real Time Chem Week (if that means nothing to you, check out their FAQ page here!). As part of this week, I thought it’d be fun to get chemists working in research to communicate some of what their research involves, and why it matters to non-chemists, here on the CI site. The incentive? They’d also get a graphic made, based on their research, for their trouble.
