ACS: The Rainbow Connection
Well, yet another ACS has come and gone. I leave you with a rainbow of chemistry talks.
“The formation of chromium rich particles by the dissolution of ”http://oasys2.confex.com/acs/232nm/techprogram/P981913.HTM">red clays in groundwater monitoring wells." Mysterious chromium in Oklahoma wells found out.
“Identification and characterization of off-flavor aroma impact compounds in canned ”http://oasys2.confex.com/acs/232nm/techprogram/P995694.HTM “>orange juice”
Canned orange juice’s flavor attributes are “tropical fruit, grapefruit, cooked/caramel and medicine.” Yum.
“Research on environmental fate of phenanthrene in Lanzhou Reach of ”http://oasys2.confex.com/acs/232nm/techprogram/P984478.HTM">Yellow River." Math says the pollutants will be stable in the river sediment in 70,000 hours.
“The Pennsylvania ”http://oasys2.confex.com/acs/232nm/techprogram/P960209.HTM">Green fluorophore: A hybrid of Oregon Green and Tokyo Green for the construction of hydrophobic and pH-insensitive molecular probes." The search for the next fluorescent marker. Amazingly, there doesn’t seem to be a band called “Tokyo Green.”
“Highly efficient fluorene-based UV-blue light-emitting polymers with controlled effective conjugation length." Ah, making things that glow.
“”http://oasys2.confex.com/acs/232nm/techprogram/P1012093.HTM">Purple: The dye of dyes" A history lesson with recent archeological findings thrown in. I wish I had seen it.
