Through the nineteenth century and into the twentieth, experimental results brought to light much new knowledge about atoms, molecules, and molecular bonding. In 1916 it was Gilbert Lewis of . Berkeley who described covalent bonding largely as we know it today (electron-sharing). Nobel laureate Linus Pauling further developed Lewis' concepts by proposing resonance while he was at the California Institute of Technology. At about the same time, Sir Robert Robinson of Oxford University focused primarily on the electrons of atoms as the engines of molecular change. Sir Christopher Ingold of University College, London, organized what was known of organic chemical reactions by arranging them in schemes we now know as mechanisms, in order to better understand the sequence of changes in a synthesis or reaction.
Hi, I’ve always found the term paleo amusing as I can’t imagine many followers going into their butchers and asking for woolly mammoth steaks or whole ibis for roasting. Perhaps it should be the meso or mesolithic diet. Silly pedantry aside (sorry!) I wanted to say a massive thanks for this article as I think I have pinpointed my problem. I have eliminated dairy and gluten and felt the benefits. I had a lush chilli last night, a healthy not gluttonous portion I might add, replete with bell and chilli peppers, fresh and puree tomato and eggplant. Despite only one glass of vino with it and a good sleep I have woken up feeling stiff and achey, bloated and lethargic. Chillis and curries with these ingredients are a staple of mine, I thought, healthy comfort food. Apparently not. I am going to eliminate them and have a look at your other blogs now. When I get paid I will buy your book 🙂
