One of the many things I've been occupied with the last few weeks has been arranging a reception at next week's Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (DAMOP) meeting. I was late in asking about the possibilities for this, so it won't make it to the printed program, which means I need…
Alginic acid is a simple polysaccharide. What makes it neat is that it will form gels in the presence of divalent cations (e.g., calcium and magnesium). It's useful anywhere a biocompatible and/or edible gel is required - one well-known use is fake cherries. If you drop a solution of sugary, red,…
