Chemical Composition of Common Materials

What if people said more what the molecular formulas actually mean in English - that would be nice. :) (Of course, only in cases where the compound actually has a shorter/simplier everyday name)

 

One might argue that if it doesn't have a short name it isn't a common/everyday molecule. (common meaning common for the average person, not common for a chemist)

Yeah, for example some chemicals in the body are "used everyday", but they don't really have a shorter name.

 

"malic and formic acid?"

 

Hmmh? People use formic acid daily/commonly? Btw, malic acid is C4H6O5.

EW = certain forum? If so, let's leave them run around in their own little circles shall we. :)

 

Btw, if we're talking about common materials that are HANDLED commonly, I'd say nickel or zinc are good examples as they're found in many coins. :))

theres less astatine...or at least thats what they want me to think. actually come to think of it i just made a kilo of it by instantaneous alpha bombardment of finely dusted uranium intimately mixed with finely dusted bismuth...actually no, but thats a good way to multiply the amount of an element tenfold quickly

Uranium dust is possible? I thought it was pyrophoric...
