Drawing a population of molecules in vector, using ChemDoodle, Avogadro, and Illustrator.
Thanks to Robert Herzog, a German translation of the IR interpretation guide is now available. The PDF is available here. —– The to-do list in the upcoming weeks doesn’t involve any other instructional chemistry spreads (sorry). I’ve a paper that I should really spend time on; there’s several history infographics that I started a few
A comic explaining how thin-layer chromatography works, using a whimsical analogy featuring Lego on a lego-beach.
A bird’s eye view of 1H NMR spectra interpretation in comic form. We first dissect it into the three major components implicit in every peak, and then systematically approach each component to show the connection between spectral information and molecular parameters.
