So we’re doing a big reaction this week in the @cowley_group. So big I’ve relocated to the group office to keep an eye on it (in supervisor speak this is known as ‘I’ll help you with it’) #realtimechem
@cowley_group First step is to put 25g of phosphorus (you can guess the allotrope) in the flask #RealTimeChem
@cowley_group We’re now cutting up 55g of sodium into small pieces to add to the reaction. The sodium will reduce the phosphorus to “Na3P”. #realtimechem

In this thread (continued), I am looking back at highly cited (over 1000 citations) 'historical' (prior to 2008) bionano papers, in particular those that deal with nanoparticles & cells. Comments most welcome. #bionano #NanoBubble.
Some background on selection of papers + comments on the first 10 papers here…

Step one: get some lithium #RealTimeChem
Step two: chop it up, heat it up #RealTimeChem
Step three is taking bloody ages

After a jam-packed 2 days at #SciOut18🌪(thx @ASBMB & @rockedu_!) it was time to reflect! 🤔 Reflection is so important, but it can be hard to find ⏰ to really just think! 💭 Some of my thoughts 👉

What’s inside? 🧐 It’s FORMAMIDE! 🤗 Formally removing RNA’s form with formamide! 🤓 FORMAMIDE in loading buffer breaks up & replaces the bonds between bases holding RNA's shape together 👇

Bring on the heat! 🔥 To help denaturants get to the huddling hydrophobic bases, we add heat ♨️ 👉 gives molecules more energy so they can “pull apart” more easily ⏩ easier access 👍 More 👇
