This ebook, part of the yank Chemical Society's Symposium sequence, is a suite of a few pleasant bits of caprice and humor, either intentional and unintended, from the realm of chemistry. beneath these recognized white lab coats sincerely beat hearts which are able to find and having fun with the lighter facet in their technology. From chemistry-based crossword puzzles to papers introduced in verse and track, this can be a dazzling number of the quirkiest incidents and episodes within the contemporary heritage of chemistry. issues comprise Ken Reese's back-page column of Chemical and Engineering information, the tune that followed the papers of physicist Howard Shapiro, and the hidden whimsy present in the supposedly somber files of the Chemical Abstracts carrier.

Explore unexpected and lesser-known chemistry facts such as Chemical AbstractsTM (CA) world-record holders, celebrity authors, sci-fi papers and patents, and unusual substances pulled from deep within Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) databases.
Celebrity in CAS Databases Celebrity goes beyond the latest Hollywood actors and actresses. Nobel Prize winners and Oscar winners publish papers found in CA. Of course, CAS indexed the works of Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Watson and Crick, and more. But which famous world leaders and royalty are also published authors? Have a look. World Leader Began Career as a Scientist M. H. Roberts, better known former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, practiced chemistry before starting her political career.
