Chemistry Professor Michelle Francl Profiled in Recent Edition of Science News Prime

Bryn Mawr Chemistry Professor Michelle Francl was profiled in a recent edition of Science News Prime, the weekly iPad complement to the monthly magazine Science News.

From the article:

“Today Francl studies the physical chemistry underlying molecules with unusual structures, such as twisted chains that resemble Möbius strips. And her words bring the wonders of science to far larger audiences than the usual technical journal papers can. In a regular column in Nature Chemistry, she tackles subjects from the importance of women scientists to chemistry’s urban legends (such as what “pH” actually stands for). In her longtime Culture of Chemistry blog, she explores topics including the naming of elements and the art of drawing chemical structures.”
