Friday – 26th April
On the 5th day of #RealTimeChem Week, chemistry was conducted. And there was much rejoicing. In the vein of the 24 favourite tweets of #RealTimeChem day, I’ve decided to highlight my favourite tweets of each day. I’ve also decided to give out awards to aforementioned tweets, with the three best tweets of the whole week winning a prize, which you can find out about on the FAQ!
These awards are ordered into Ag (10 winners), Au (7 winners) and Pt (3 winners). Within these categories they are in no particular order.
So without further ado, onto the awards.
Friday. The last day of the working week for many and so the last really big day of #RealTimeChem week. It didn’t disappoint, with a very nice mix of reactions, observations, laboratory wisdom and witty remarks.
Mags finds out about how to make chocolate. Yummiest kind of chemistry!

Some Friday morning wisdom from Vittorio via a handy T-Shirt. In fact, T-shirts are a bit of a theme today.

Audrey was off to teach the kids some chemistry and the important lesson that science isn’t just for men!

The Grumpy Chemist wins yet another award for this simple shot of notes on a fumehood. It’s just one of those things we all do, random scribblings on the metal edges, or on the glass. Just reminds me of my time in lab. Guess I’m nostalgic!

Glen Ernst worked really hard this #RealTimeChem week, showing off a wide range of laboratory reactions and skills. This prophetic comment though is my favourite. 🙂

Kat’s vine of boiling solid is just as she says, quite mesmerising! Kat has been as ever a dedicated #RealTimeChem participant blogging her work every single day. She deserves this for sheer dedication!

Of all the T-shirts of the day Nessa has to have the best. Who needs Rock n’ Roll when you can have Chemistry eh?

This picture from Tien gave me such amusement I just had to chose it for Platinum. 🙂 It’s good to know that we chemists are fully prepared to survive the coming zombie apocalypse.
