Amazing chemistry! Maybe some physics involved? 🤔 #scicomm#amazingscience#amazingchemistry#Repost @amerchemsociety with @repostapp
Midair crystallization @cenmag Chemistry in Pictures.
It’s not #magic , it’s acoustic levitation! These two metal probes emit and reflect sound waves that trap this liquid droplet in midair. Franziska Emmerling uses the effect to study crystallization without interference from container walls, which can influence the rate of crystal formation. “In a typical experiment, we use an under saturated solution of a certain compound,” she says. “During the experiment, solvent evaporates from the droplet and the saturation level increases leading to nucleation and then crystallization.” In this photo, however, they’re just levitating blue ink to demonstrate the apparatus.
Emmerling submitted this photo as part of the #RealTimeChem photo contest on Twitter.
Escaping through the aqueous layer!
For those who wants to know:
This is a simple but effective technique where mixture of compounds are separated into two immiscible layers depending on their solubility in the individual layers. Here, organic and aqueous layers are clearly separated. Some tiny bubbles from the lower organic layer are trying to go through the aqueous layer to make another layer above. But due to some affinity with the aqueous layer, these bubbles have created tailing through their path. And this snap is all about the amazing scenario inside the separatory funnel!
Lauren and Antonio have amazing chemistry together. Being a hero and an incredible inspiration to this fandom is the greatest thing that has ever happened. It’s crazy that I’m an inspiration for you guys. There will be a lot of Lantonio fan accounts besides mine. This started to be a small little fandom. But then grew to the biggest fandom in the world. These two have beautiful chemistry together that I can’t even imagine. Would you ever think if they became a couple? We all could be blessed. All of us!
