The last Numbers of Atoms post concluded with the assertion that titrations can be used for more than just acid/base determinations. As we’ve discussed, a titration is a procedure in which the concentration of a compound can be determined by reacting...

I have recently caught a cold. In the first days, apart from the sore throat sensation, my nose was totally congested, so I had to use a nasal spray. My option was Olynth. From curiosity at first, I read the list of components of this medicine. Then I thought...

In our last Numbers of Atoms post, we considered volumetric analysis – a simple approach to quantitative analysis that allows for relatively quick determination of the concentration of an analyte in a solution. In a titration,a quantity of reactant (the...

A novel cofactor is not something that is discovered every day, or even every year. So we are lucky this year. The crystal structure of a putative methyltransferase CmoA from Escherichia coli reveals the presence of [(3S)-3-amino-3-carboxypropyl]{[(2S,3S,4R,5R)-5-(6-aminopurin-9-yl)-3,4-dihydroxyoxolan-2-yl]methyl}(carboxymethyl)sulfanium,...

I’ve been performing some internet searches that could cause red flags in the office, but on the other hand it’s a story of citizen science and lab safety. There is a growing trend for people to perform solvent extractions at home, but what they’re...
