If ever I had a favorite group of animals, beyond the Meerkats it would be the Orangutan. They are so similar to us in behaviour that it is at times eerie. A trip to the Melbourne Zoo showed me this character who was at home with his blanket, sitting in the centre of the enclosure…

Salicin is a chemical which is produced by the Salix Willow bark and functions as an anti-inflammatory agent in the human body. This chemical was the initial origin of aspirin and is chemically related to Aspirin. As a tongue twister, the IUPAC name for Salicin is (2R,3S,4S,5R,6S)-2-(Hydroxymethyl)-6-[2-(hydroxymethyl)phenoxy]oxane-3, 4,5-triol.
Recently I posted a mystery item, that mystery item was the Sultana. So this episode of Under the Microscope is showing the Sultana I recently mentioned.
