A chemist's scar

Following our video on "The Mark of the Chemist" I was amused to see this photo posted by one of our Twitter followers.


Our thanks to @IainHolder for taking the time to share it!

He, like so many before, seems to have acquired the scar after a mishap with laboratory glassware.

You can follow us on Twitter @periodicvideos and also on Facebook.

Here's the video which inspired Iain's post.

  2. As I mentioned on twitter, I did this in exactly the same manner as the video.. For my 3rd year undergrad project, I was making some fullerene intercalates and while I was twisting a test tube into some thick rubber tubing bound for the vacuum line, the test tube shattered and I stabbed myself in finger with considerable force.

    Apparently they hardly ever break. Something I laughed about with the x-ray specialist at the hospital.
