Fun with coffee and shapes. Today is the largest molecule I’ve done yet. In part, thanks goes to @moleculestore for hooking me up with a bag of oxygen parts and a full kit last year. . . . As for this beast, it’s a POWERFUL HMO or Human Milk Oligosaccharide. In other words it’s found in human breast milk to feed the baby. But wait!!! Babies can’t digest these molecules so why is so much effort put into keeping them in the milk over evolutionary time??? . . . You guessed it, at least if you know me, you did. THE MICROBIOME!!!! There has been shown in studies, including one that partnered with UC-Davis (doi: 10.1038/pr.2014.156) that shows a critter known as Bifidobacterium longum subspecies infantis is a key player in early colonization that can improve long term health outcomes and proper developmental the kiddo. . . . But how??? Well. Essentially the HMO shown here comes into the baby when breast feeding (has not been effectively replicated in formula) and makes it way into the large intestine since baby can’t break it down. That’s when B. longum infantis goes to work. They break this HMO down into small short chain fatty acids that are then metabolized out by the bacteria and now able to be digested and used for energy and brain development by the host baby. . . . Fascinating. Now the formula for this molecule is C26H45NO21 and I ran out of connectors to do all the hydrogens so just role with it lol. I expect the actual name of this HMO as the answer. Good luck. Today is a doozy!! . . . #gorillazenwellness #funwithcoffeeandshapes #phdtobe #science #scientist #microbiome #research #biochemistry #mentalhealthawareness #metabolomics #metabolism #nutrition #breastfeeding #nutritionstudent #feedyourgut #guthealth #fitness #wellness #mindpump #chemistry #biology #microbes #eatyourveggies #

ETFE: il materiale innovativo che sta rivoluzionando il mondo L’etilene tetrafluoroetilene (ETFE) si presenta come un polimero (un aggregato esteso di entità molecolari di dimensioni inferiori) scoperto negli anni 40 un po’ per caso, come tutte le grandi scoperte in fondo. Le molecole che costituiscono un composto polimerico sono chiamate monomeri e nel caso della produzione di ETFE si ottengono da una reazione radicalica tra fluoro e etilene, il più semplice tra i composti organici contenenti un doppio legame. Il processo di sintesi è a base d’acqua, non richiede l’utilizzo di solventi chimici, né di derivati del petrolio ed è in accordo persino con le regole sancite dal Trattato di Montreal, questo vuol dire che non rientra tra i materiali che danneggiano lo strato di ozono atmosferico. #passion #ambition #workhard #nopainnogain #studyhard #fuelyourambition #university #like4like #follow4follow #l4l #like4follow #likeforlike #followforfollowback #follow4followback #chemical #chemistry #engineering #work

The legs of the #Spacex_starship #hopper vehicle are secured to the concrete pad by heavy duty straps and at least 50 ton shackles. When the teams ignite the #Raptor engine, the vehicle will be held in place. Eventually technicians will remove the straps and the vehicle will fly! Hopefully this will be the week where the single Raptor engine is lit! 🔥 🚀One step at a time my friends. #Rockets take time. - - - Image credit 📸 @bocachicagal - - - - - #SpaceX #science #starship #space #hopper #technology #engineering #innovation #Texas #Florida #math #chemistry #instagood #future #star #life #epic #amazing #insta #test #patience

Good morning ☀️ I’m finishing up my studies for the upcoming biochemistry exam 😭 so nervous! How was your weekend? Notes taken using @goodnotesapp GoodNotes5 ✏️ .
