This does not make any sense: six words that rocked molecular science

Talk by Ljiljana Fruk on Wednesday 21 March 2018

Ljiljana talked about discoveries and molecules that at first did not make any sense, but have nevertheless rocked our world and changed the way. For example she talked about discovery of the first artificial dye and why is the colour blue so rare in Nature, the birth of organic chemistry and polymer science, beginnings of nanotechnology and discovery of such molecules as thalidomide, penicilin and heroin, which dramatically changed pharmaceutical industry.
