When I was reading the comment of Marko Petkovic to the previous post, I’ve decided to recommend his site, Chemistry Pictures, where some interesting images can be found (at least for students and teachers). All of these images can be used freely since they are in the public domain.
Other interesting chemistry pictures resources:
Another year, another excellent collection of photographs about the Science behind the simple things in Nature: Visions of Science Photographic Award. From the site: ‘So, what is a Vision of Science? To the judges of the Awards, a Vision of Science is an attention-grabbing image that gives new insight into the world of science and the workings of nature. It may show something never seen before, it may explain a scientific phenomenon, it may illustrate scientific data or it may simply be an image that shows the beauty of science.’
If you like minerals (and molecules…) then you should not miss this extraordinary virtual museum.
Now, with the weekend approaching, nothing better than taking some time to explore the magnificent world of Molecular Expressions: amazing photographs obtained by microscopy. For those wanting to bypass the details the direct way to the gallery is through here.
There are not enough words to describe the beauty of this collection of photographs. So, the best to do is to take a look at them. My advice is to start with the 2004 winners and then go to the winners of the previous years.
