    I have always loved the fact that pencil lead is made of the same stuff as sparkly diamonds.

    Also this is pretty:

    I was going to say endohedral fullerenes. But lets be honest, those are merely cool.

    Well, if I want to go from a "chemist" standpoint on elegance and wonder in ways of complexity for a natural product... oh man I don't know if I could choose! I could go with Taxol, the blockbuster drug for breast cancer. It's got a wonderously complex structure with very unusual features, bond activity, and it's synthesis is one of the most important of our time:




    Or I could go for fascinating. I'd have to say bullvalene. It's interesting in it's own right, but the molecule is actually fully spherically symmetrical. The molecule reacts with itself and rearranges billions of times a second at room temperature. What we see when we draw it is just a photograph of a particular shape.




    Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalmin) is also a wonderous structure. It's essential for human health, is a deep red solid, and is one of the most complex non-protein molecules in us. The first synthesis of it is downright amazing given it was done in the 70's. Which is very "early" for a molecule of this level of challenge. (spoiler cause the image is huge)

    ^ So much love in this post


    I don't remember what it was about, but I used to joke that Phenanthrene and Anthracene are my sons. So I'm posting them both- I love them the same of course






    I'm glad that this one was discovered.

    This is the cure for cancer: bromopyruvic acid


    Such a simple molecule and yet it has the ability to change tens of millions of lives and save us hundreds of billions of dollars.
