In 1939 Linus Pauling published one of the most important textbooks in the field of chemistry, "The Nature of the Chemical Bond". The work represented in the textbook led to Pauling's reception of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1954. While I have no delusions that this blog will, at some future date, win me the Nobel Prize, I do hope to share interesting ideas, cool chemistry, and my molecular musings in The Nature of the Chemical Blog.

Here are a few more SEM pictures.
These are from a fly I caught at our house.
A spider fang. I like how you can see the hole through which it injects the venom.
This is the wispy part of a dandelion seed. Notice how the shafts are hollow.
