Andy Brunning's articles are fantastic - please keep up this great collaboration !!

They will also make an excellent book when compiled - the type of thing that can excite people about chemistry and raise the level of awareness of its importance and prevalence (yes, chemical are indeed everywhere, and we would be singularities without time or space without them !).
