This is one of the questions being asked of leading chemists on the Sceptical Chymist, one of NPG’s blogs, focused on chemistry.
They’ve interviewed 9 people so far (including 1 from MIT) in a series they’re calling Reactions. A fun read, lends some insight into the life and minds of these chemists. Another question was: If exiled on a desert island, what one book and one CD would you take with you?
I’m still trying to think of what book or CD I would take. How about you?
