To see more creative NanoKids, click here As part of IYC2011, every week I’d discuss something cool about chemistry with my organic chemistry class. After the radical chapter, we talked about the arrow-pushing mechanism of ozone/oxygen natural interconversion and the mechanism of CFC-catalyzed ozone degradation. We talked about the funnel model of the drug discovery …
