We’ve collected the best Compounds Quotes from the greatest minds of the world: Thomas A. Steitz, Blase J. Cupich, Mildred Dresselhaus, Paul Stamets, Valtteri Bottas. Use them as an inspiration.
There are, in fact, very few organic zinc compounds; only the first members of the series, which correspond to the simplest organic radicals, can be prepared without too much difficulty, but they have the disadvantage of being spontaneously inflammable in air and are consequently very dangerous to handle.
The reactions of organic magnesium compounds are of two kinds – reactions of substitution and reactions of addition.
In organic chemistry, we have learnt to derive from compounds containing only carbon and hydrogen, i.e. from the hydrocarbons, all other types of combinations, such as alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, etc.
In the first quarter of the nineteenth century the experimental proof for the interdependence of the composition and properties of chemical compounds resulted in the theory that they are mutually related, so that like composition governs like properties, and conversely.
That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key.
I am much more open to plural marriage than I was before, and I now support it in certain situations. I do believe it is right for some people. But our example in America today is gross abuse – I can’t support it in fundamentalist compounds.
In bitter almond oil, like in a great number of other substances that previously had been counted among the ‘aromatic compounds’ on behalf of their strong smell, a derivative of benzene is present. The special properties of benzene and its derivatives are caused by the typical arrangement of their carbon atoms.
A lot of compelling stories in the world aren’t being told, and the fact that people don’t know about them compounds the suffering.
We’ve only explored about 5% of our ocean. There are great discoveries yet to be made down there – fantastic creatures representing millions of years of evolution and possibly bioactive compounds that could benefit us in ways we can’t even imagine.
The emitters of the spectral series are without exception single atoms, not compounds of atoms.
