OpenLearn : Discovering Chemistry

Just signed upto Discovering Chemistry with Open Learn [1]. This is a 24 hour course from the Open University [2] via their OpenLearn platform.

This is partly for personal interest, partly for career development and will help me develop useful knowledge going forward. I have set up a thread on Discourse [3] to facilitate discussion.

I would like to learn more about Isotope shift , which is mentioned in a arXiv article [4] from 2017. This topic is probably beyond the scope of the chemistry course, but is a good starting point. Hopefully however this Chemistry course can build on what I already know about isotopes at least.

Abundances in Przybylski's star ( per-zib-ill-skee)

This looks like a really interesting paper, published on Oxford Academic [1], examining, what appears to be the unusual composition of Przybylski's star [2]. According to Wikipedia* is in the “Southern constellation of Centaurus”

  • I need a better academic references for this, which could be at [4].

There seems to be quite a few heavier element detected.

Women in Chemistry

To celebrate International Women's day, Compound Chemistry have released a great poster celebrating the contribution women have made to Chemistry.

Periodic table of data

I found a link to this on Twitter, part of last weeks National Periodic table day. This is a really useful set of periodic tables, each one covers a different topic, e.g Origins, name origins, elements in the Sea, Phones, Toxicity etc.

So an example is:– Periodic table of Isotopes, which gives information on how many isotopes there are for each element.

Yale University Chemistry BootCamp

If you are interested in careers in Chemistry, then there were posted to Youtube by NoreenGenChem

Four Yale chemistry graduate students experiences of Chemistry,

Session 1 – Careers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcDD5iD966A

Session 2 – Research https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyZsrLRrg0o

Session 3 – All about 2020 Yale Chemistry graduate admissions with some insider advice (with Q&A) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbCZ-UAgHUk

The search for life on Mars

One of the advantages of being a higher education student or in my case alumni is you get to join groups. I have just been watching a live webcast on the experiments that are being used onboard Mars rovers to look for possible indicators that Mars once supported life.

Exploring the Habitability of Mars with the Curiosity and Rosalind Franklin rovers and Orbital Missions

I am not sure if there is a recording of this going up, but the link to a some more information is here.

I am currently undertaking Particle Physics but there is also a really interesting series of lecutures on AstroBiology I want to check out too.

Meteorites Talk

Just been watching a really interesting talk by Dr Tim Gregory – Meteorites from 8th October 2020 – YouTube.

This was really interesting and accessible people with both a science and non science background,

Briefly touched on how the solar system was formed, protoplanetary disks looked at the two different types of asteroids, how they are formed, what makes them up internally, and finished off with a quick look at some of the organic molecules that have been found and how these could have found their way to earth.

Well worth a look, the video can be found on Youtube.

Thank you to the OU Science Club for pointing me to this talk.

National Chemistry Week 2020

18th to 24th October is National Chemistry week, so there are a few activities listed on the American Chemistry Society website out reach pages.

In recent chemistry news ScienceMagazine has an article on a Globular cluster in the Andromeda galaxy that appear to be deficient in elements heavier than Hydrogen and Helium.

This is interesting, there isn't that much information due to the need to sign in, but I would suspect the research papers may be more widely available in due course.

Organic Chemistry 6: Benzene Derivatives in Organic-Chemistry

So as an extension to yesterdays post Compound chemistry have an infographic on Benzine derivatives.

Benzine Derivatives

So once you have made a Benzine molecule, this can be easily modified to some of what is presented here.
