So this week in Chem 3020, we did part II of the Optical Microscopy lab. But this time, instead of looking at fibers, we looked at the fusion of crystals of various explosive organic substances under a light microscope. This entailed melting them down on a hotplate and then watching them crystallize under the microscope. The crystal pictures are even prettier than the fiber ones so I have to share :)
Chemistry can be a pain in the ass sometimes, but at least it’s pretty?
