Later scientists had tried to explain natural processes in terms of invisible units
called “corpuscles” or “molecules,” but the first theory of atoms backed up by
scientific observations was set out by the English scientist John Dalton in 1803.
Mixture of gases Dalton's theory came from his hobby of recording the weather.
Every day he recorded the temperature and air pressure. This gave Colored
liquids diffuse in water. All fluids— gases and liquids— do this. The atoms and
molecules are ...

This means creating long chains of molecules at very low temperatures. These
long chain polymers formed liquid crystal while in a solution. This was something
unique to those polymers at the time. For this reason, they were called crystalline
polymers. The result of her experiments was a polymer solution that most
researchers would have rejected. It was unlike any polymer solutions prepared at
the time. It was fluid and cloudy, rather than thick and clear as most polymers up
till then.

Primordial Soup A lab experiment in 1953 showed that complex molecules used
by living things could have arisen from simple chemicals in ancient oceans. A lot
of biology looks at how plants and animals live. The theory of evolution also looks
at how they have changed over the long history of life on Earth. A big question
remains. How did life begin? Before there was life, there was just a mixture of
chemicals. This has been called the Primordial Soup (primordial means “in the ...

DNA and RNA must have evolved from molecules that could be replicated
without the specialized enzymatic help that modern nucleic acids require. The
chance formation of the first such molecules changed the world forever. Their
descendants invaded the Earth's seas, rivers, and lakes, its solid surface, and its
atmosphere, organizing inert matter and mobilizing energy for the production of
more and yet more molecules possessing this novel recursive property. Life is an
infection of ...
