Imaging the Molecular Orbitals of Pentacene 70

eparker05 writes "Researchers at University of Liverpool have used a scanning tunneling microscope to image the aromatic molecule pentacene (Abstract). Not unexpectedly, the resulting images showed an astonishingly close correlation to the theoretically predicted molecular orbitals. This incredible set of images reminds me of the group that imaged a single carbon atom in 2009."

    You can control the oxidation breathing causes by taking proper supplements (Vitamins C and E, for example). Plenty of exercise is also a must.

    A proper diet, preferably vegan and organic is something to consider as well. Even with all these safeguards in place, you should consider having a spinal health check-up from a committed Chiropractor. They will detect and break-up any subluxation before it becomes a serious issue. Your Doctor may even put you on a maintenace program of weekly or twice-weekly visits to ensure your nervous system is kept in peak shape.

    Take care!
