Biology: Modeling carbon compounds
This week we talked about carbon and how its atomic structure gives it so much versatility in forming chemical bonds with other elements. Using the latest in electron microscopy we were able to produce this incredible image of an actual butane molecule.
Next week we'll investigate the major carbon-containing macromolecules that make up all living things.
