All Along the Skeletal Chemical

Something a little more experimental than our usual fare on Kuriositas, this animation by Russosky gives us a voyage along the chemical molecular structures.   It takes us, so Russosky tells us ‘from the infamous Aspartame to baneful Warfarin, from the comfortable Benzocaine to the inhuman Nandrolone’.  That’s some description and I found the whole experience, together with the music by Scanone quite hypnotic.

Perhaps that is why I failed to recognize a single one of the chemicals represented here – perhaps it’s really because I know nothing more about chemistry than your average 14 year old.  Ignorance is bliss, however – and this is a delight.
