Compounds Quotes

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.

Bacteria evolve, and so they become resistant to existing drugs. Sometimes they revert, depending on how damaging the mutation is to the life cycle of the bacteria. Mutations that give rise to resistance against particular compounds do increase, and that is why you constantly have to have new ones.
Thomas A. Steitz
Chicago is highly segregated, a fact that both causes and compounds the problems we face in bringing an end to violence.
The main thread of my work is structure property relations and materials. If you have certain atoms, why do they attract each other? Why do they make compounds? Why do they do what they do?
Mushrooms have many helpful nutrients, including beta glucans for immune enhancement, ergothioneines for antioxidative potentiation, nerve growth stimulators for helping brain function, and antimicrobial compounds for limiting viruses.
In Formula 1, the neck is really important. There’s a lot of force that’s going to your head. We also have a helmet and it’s not that light. When it’s all about g-force, all of that extra weight in the helmet compounds and puts more and more pressure.
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.
Victor Grignard
During the course of my research, I had had occasion to examine not only simple compounds, salts and oxides, but also a great number of minerals.
Panic is a natural human response to danger, but it’s one that severely compounds the risk.
The reactions of organic magnesium compounds are of two kinds – reactions of substitution and reactions of addition.
Victor Grignard
Disgust is often more deeply buried than envy and anger, but it compounds and intensifies the other negative emotions.
The thing that’s very puzzling to somebody who‘s been in Pakistan repeatedly since 1983 is lots of people live in compounds with high walls in Pakistan. I mean, that’s so completely routine. In fact, you know, it would be un-routine to have the reverse.
The palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction between different types of organoboron compounds and various organic electrophiles including halides or triflates in the presence of a base provides a powerful and general methodology for the formation of carbon-carbon bonds.
Akira Suzuki
With the exception of autotrophic bacteria, the green, or chlorophyll-bearing, plants are the only living forms on this planet capable of synthesizing organic matter out of inorganic elements and simple compounds.
Selman Waksman
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.
Otto Wallach
I believe you make your day. You make your life. So much of it is all perception, and this is the form that I built for myself. I have to accept it and work within those compounds, and it’s up to me.
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.
Wilhelm Ostwald
The modern diet is grossly deficient in hundreds of important plant-derived immunity-building compounds which makes us highly vulnerable to viruses, infections and disease.
Worry compounds the futility of being trapped on a dead-end street. Thinking opens new avenues.
Cullen Hightower
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.
If you foul up, tell the President and correct it fast. Delay only compounds mistakes.
Why, for example, should a group of simple, stable compounds of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen struggle for billions of years to organise themselves into a professor of chemistry? What’s the motive?
Coffee, one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, contains a plethora of naturally-occurring compounds, including several classes of antioxidants.
Chris Kilham
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.
Otto Wallach
So long as I can remember, my siblings and I would have ‘Star Warsaction figures or Fisher-Price action figures, and we would build these sprawling compounds.
As soon as we can wrest from Nature the secret of the internal structure of the compounds produced by her, chemical science can then even surpass Nature by producing compounds as variations of the natural ones, which the living cell is unable to construct.
Otto Wallach
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.
If you have an embarrassing story, and it’s a source of shame, keeping it in just compounds the shame and turns the story into something poisonous. And if someone knows about it, then it can be used against you.
We’ve only explored about five percent 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 that we can’t even yet imagine.

The emitters of the spectral series are without exception single atoms, not compounds of atoms.
This is largely the methodology I’ve used throughout my career – that is, starting with a question as to what might be the properties of a set of compounds that could be invented which were unusual and unpredictable. Many times I’ve felt a bit like Columbus setting sail.
Donald Cram
In general, exchange reactions for the lighter isotopes have equilibrium constants sufficiently different from unity, so that the ratios of concentrations of the isotopes in two compounds which are in equilibrium differ by a few per cents in nearly all cases.
Harold Urey
Chemical compounds of carbon can exist in an infinite variety of compositions, forms and sizes. The naturally occurring organic substances are the basis of all life on Earth, and their science at the molecular level defines a fundamental language of that life.
Elias James Corey
Our case, we used the organometallic compounds. Additionally, we need one important element, that is base. Without base, the acidic coupling reaction using organoboron compounds cannot proceed nicely. So, that is very important point in our cross-coupling reaction.
Akira Suzuki
