Coming soon to a smartphone near you: Goggles, lab coat, and fire extinguisher

Posted By Jyllian Kemsley on Feb 13, 2018 in Featured | 0 comments

Some time ago, my brilliant C&EN colleague Jessica Morrison hatched a plan to develop emoji for chemists. With the help of Yang Ku and Sam Lemonick, chemoji were born. And later this year, they"ll become part of the standard set"along with a few other science items, redheaded and curly-haired people, superheroes and heroines, and yarn.

Want our original set of images? You can download them here. At least one school is using them on fume hoods"the faces are cut in half and pasted on the frame and sash; aligning the smile puts the sash at the correct height.

(Where has the Safety Zone been, you ask? First there was "Grappling with graduate student mental health and suicide", then "Confronting sexual harassment in chemistry". Those stories were followed by a promotion to C&EN"s executive editor for policy. New editor responsibilities included managing Top headlines of 2017 and U.S. policy outlook for 2018, plus assorted other things to learn. I still have the safety beat, though, and one of my goals for this quarter is to get the Safety Zone going again.)
