ACS-2009 Salt Lake City


Jeremy (J) and I will be attending the upcoming ACS meeting and will be blogging the conference as it unfolds. If anyone in the audience is interested in doing a meet-up leave a comment. 😉

For those looking for more than a meet-up I present you with…
Corny Chemistry Pick-Up Lines:

  1. If I could rewrite the periodic table, I would put Uranium and Iodine together, for U and I!
  2. What does it take to get over YOUR activation barrier?
  3. I’m positive, you’re negative, let’s get together and make a compound!
  4. My favorite element is uranium, because I love U!
  5. It’s true that opposites attract. We’re like an electron and a proton, we come together and now we’re stable… and steady!
  6. You want to see if we can make some new compounds from an “energetic” reaction?
  7. You must be one of those new neon compounds with fluorine and iodine, because you are FINe!
  8. If I were a Bunsen burner, you would be my flame, hot enough to melt a few things.
  9. I got a charge out of bonding with you.
  10. You make my atomic number rise.
  11. You’re so cool, molecules stop in your presence.
  12. I have mass. You have mass. We’re naturally attracted!
  13. Hey baby, I’ll raise your kinetic energy.
  14. You make me hotter than crystallizing a super saturated solution of sodium acetate.
  15. You can hydrolyze me anytime.
  16. You must be a good benzene ring, because you are pleasantly aromatic.
  17. You’re an electrophile and I’m a nucleophile, we’re attracted and we can make each other happy.
  18. You’re an alcohol and I’m your ketone. I’ll protect your from the Grignards of life.
  19. You are a photon quanta to my valence electron. You excite me to a higher energy level.
  20. Baby, quench me and work me up anytime!

You can blame Chemical Forums for this collection: A request for cheesy Chemistry related pick-up lines

If you can think of better ones please share.



  1. “14. You make me hotter than sulfur hydroxide mixed with ethyl acetate”

    Good luck with the “sulfur hydroxide”.

  2. My go to pick up line: You complete my octet

    Unfortunately only I was ever amused by this line

  3. My advice: Bring a USB drive and be prepared to ask people for interesting images from their talks.
    See you there!

  4. Those are awesome! Although, there should be some reference to helicase unzipping genes.

  5. haha these are really good pick up lines! So cheesy
