General Chemistry I at Centre College

Compound Interest

For your third post, you must choose two articles from http://www.compoundchem.com/ and educate your reader on the chemical connection between the two articles using the knowledge you have learned in class. Post due May 2.

Compound Interest is a site that aims to take a closer look at the chemical compounds we come across on a day-to-day basis.  It also provides graphics for educational purposes, both for teacher and student use.  The site is run single-handedly by Andy Brunning.  He is a chemistry teacher based in Cambridge, UK, and creates the graphics for the site in his spare time.

Browse through the archives or scroll through the recent posts to choose an article (“The Chemistry of …”) that interests you.  Then, proceed to connect your topic with another article posted through this site.  This blog should include a brief summary of each article, as well as a detailed explanation of how these topics are connected.  Be sure to include chemical language as you describe the attributes associated with each article.  In addition, you must connect these two topics with another concept in the world – i.e. colors, chemical reactions, smells – just as you have seen on Compound Interest.  Briefly describe the third topic you chose and explain how you think it relates to the previously discussed articles.
