Molecule of the Day

In keeping with my determination to look at molecules (meaning, for the most part, their graphic representations) with the kids, I've added a new website to the Learn About Chemistry list.

Here's MY molecule of the day: 1,3,7-trimethyl-1H-purine-2,6(3H,7H)-dione, also known as caffeine. I've seen the tee shirt above at my neighborhood coffee emporium. Very cool.
