Six More Common Chemical Molecule Posters

You might remember a short while back I started creating a series of posters featuring everyday chemical molecules to help decorate my classroom. Here are the next six in this ongoing project! As before, they’ll very shortly be available to purchase as posters, mugs, and more in the site’s Redbubble store (not sure why anyone would want a mug with urea […]

Today, 23rd October, is Mole Day – which might put you in mind of small, furry, burrowing animals. However, they don’t even seem to have a commemorative day of any kind; we’re actually talking about the mole in chemistry, a quantity that essentially allows us to ‘count’ atoms and molecules in a more convenient way. […]

A Brief Guide to Types of Organic Chemistry Formulae

Back to basics with today’s graphic, with a look at the different ways compounds in organic chemistry can be represented. Obviously, if you’re a chemist, these will all be second nature, but as was quite fairly pointed out with regards to the food chemistry graphics, if you’re not well versed in chemistry, all of those […]

Chemical Structures of Neurotransmitters

A bit of a chemistry/biology tie in today with a series of posters looking at the chemical structures of some of the main neurotransmitters in the brain. I’ve also included a little information on the main effects and roles of each underneath the structures – however, I’d hasten to add that, since this is definitely […]
