• The reality of the role played by organic chemistry in modern existence is summed up in a famous advertising slogan used by E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (usually referred to as 'du Pont'): 'Better Things for Better Living Through Chemistry. (scienceclarified.com)
  • Often rendered simply as 'Better Living Through Chemistry,' the advertising campaign made its debut in 1938, just as du Pont introduced a revolutionary product of organic chemistry: nylon, the creation of a brilliant young chemist named Wallace Carothers (1896-1937). (scienceclarified.com)
  • In this way, The Graduate spoke for a whole generation that had become ambivalent concerning 'better living through chemistry,' a phrase that eventually was perceived as ironic in view of concerns about the environment and the many artificial products that make up modern life. (scienceclarified.com)
  • yet the reality is that people truly do enjoy 'better living through chemistry'-particularly organic chemistry. (scienceclarified.com)
  • 1 Much like last year, this report categorises research according to the biomolecule from which it draws inspiration, although the addition of a section on prebiotic chemistry and chirality transfer reflects the volume of important research produced in this area in 2006. (rsc.org)
  • Students wanting a comprehensive and accessible overview of organic chemistry to build the necessary foundations for a more detailed study will find this book an ideal source of the information they require. (ebooks.com)
  • The material is organised so that fundamental concepts are introduced early, then built on to provide an overview of the essentials of functional group chemistry and reactivity, leading the student to a solid understanding of the basics of organic chemistry. (ebooks.com)
  • Synthetic fibers such as nylon-used in everything from toothbrushes to parachutes-would be out of the picture if it were not for the enormous progress made by organic chemistry. (scienceclarified.com)
  • In particular, research in areas such as nanoparticles and single wall nanotubes is becoming increasingly relevant to those researchers working at the interface between organic and biological chemistry. (rsc.org)
  • The work is categorized according to the key processes involved in the syntheses of polyheterocycles, aiming to give readers an easy understanding of this MCR-based chemistry and to provide insights for further investigations. (rsc.org)
  • Nanoscale metal-organic frameworks (NMOFs) of the UiO-66 structure containing high Zr (37 wt%) and Hf (57 wt%) content were synthesized and characterized, and their potential as contrast agents for X-ray computed tomography (CT) imaging was evaluated. (rsc.org)
