This booklet, part of the yankee Chemical Society's Symposium sequence, is a set of a few pleasant bits of caprice and humor, either intentional and unintentional, from the area of chemistry. beneath these recognized white lab coats basically 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 tune, this can be a marvelous number of the quirkiest incidents and episodes within the contemporary heritage of chemistry. issues contain Ken Reese's back-page column of Chemical and Engineering information, the tune that observed the papers of physicist Howard Shapiro, and the hidden whimsy present in the supposedly somber documents of the Chemical Abstracts provider.

It also leapt across the Atlantic and took on different characteristics in other parts of the world. So today we must refer to the crossword puzzle as we know it as the “American” puzzle. As such, it must be diagonally symmetrical (a chemist would say that it must have D2h symmetry), it must contain no uncrossed letters and each entry must contain a minimum of two letters (the New York Times requires three). ; ACS Symposium Series; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 2013. ch004 editorial policy.
