We’re excited it’s #Realtimechem Week—seven whole days meant to encourage chemists to share their chemistry through tweets. You can join the conversation by adding the hashtag #Realtimechem to your Twitter posts and following @realtimechem.
To celebrate, C&EN has compiled a list of molecularly minded scientists worth following on Twitter. These folks, all of whom are trained chemists currently practicing chemistry (our requirements to be on the list), contribute meaningfully to the discussion of the central science online.
C&EN chose the illustrious chemists on this list by constructing a panel of experts—a fine group of chemists worth following in their own right.
You can subscribe to the list of 25 chemists, plus our panelists here.
