As a holdover from grad school, I still get a little pain in my stomach whenever someone mentions“kinetics studies.” I never had the displeasure of running one myself, but I’ve heard many stories of others’ painful nights camped out...
The other day as I was recording a video (on planes of symmetry and chirality) for my organic chemistry class, I realized that the video wasn’t really about what I thought it was about. While my lips were moving and I was scribbling on the screen, I was...
Last week I attended the national ACS meeting in Denver. It was great to catch up with old friends and network with vendors and publishers, but the highlight for me was the symposium at which I presented: Online Courses and the Effect on the On-campus Classroom....

It’s time for a nod to one of my favorite chemistry-themed YouTube channels, NurdRage. NurdRage’s channel is basically a laundry list of awesome, little-known chemistry experiments…with a creepy yet soothing voice-changer voice to boot. One...
Apologies to one of my favorite chemistry blogsfor the title of this seriesit just fit too well!I’ve become very interested in the field of chemoinformaticslately. It’s mind-boggling to think about how chemoinformatics could influence education,...
