BROMINE IN 21st CENTURY

Let me pose an idea for Chemists that builds on the naming of
 the Periodic Table as the topic of the year a couple of years ago. 
 We all noticed that scientists volunteered a story about their
 favorite element.

.
Throughout my career Bromine has been a common
 denominator of research, manufacturing and enterprise.  So I
 have created a document telling its story that I have pulled
 together from a number of fields with a 21st century perspective…
 that entails knowing about toxicology, ozone depletion,
 biochemistry, and even geology and historical uses and abuses.

I encourage others to create their own favorite element story and
 I will gladly list their perspectives in this blog.  [To my mind,
 CEN tried to give one page, edited views that missed a valuable
 opportunity to teach about advances and new notions.]
.
Another opportunity I wish to suggest people learning about is
 their “Scientific Genealogy”.  That could be not only the
 university department from which each of us attended and
 graduated from, but also teachers and their teachers, colleagues
 and their contributions.  Think about it and the value it would provide.
