Radicals Shake Up Molecules in a Tug o’ War

The image shows an unexcited deuterium molecule (a form of molecular hydrogen composed of two deuterium, or heavy hydrogen, atoms) before an encounter with a fast moving hydrogen atom. The hydrogen atom excites the deuterium molecule via the recently discovered “Tug o’ War Mechanism”. Credit: Stuart Greaves, University of Bristol.. Permission granted on 20 April 2010 by S.

Mixing of Fluorescent Dye in Stirred Tank Reactor
http://www.nsf.gov/news/mmg/mmg_disp.cfm?med_id=59957&from=img
Mixing of Fluorescent Dye in Stirred Tank Reactor A fluorescent dye injected into a tank of stirred liquid creates a pattern that resembles a green apple. The demonstration, conducted by Rutgers researchers from the NSF Engineering Research Center on Structured Organic Composites (C-SOC), shows how liquids mix in a typical pharmaceutical manufacturing operation. Engineers will use such studies to help drug makers improve product uniformity. In this view, a 4-blade impeller attached at the bottom of the vertical shaft, visible at the center of the image, draws fluid from above and creates outgoing ripples in the flow. Dye injected from above is rapidly advected around a toroidal shell, but penetrates slowly into the interior: this separation between the outside and the inside of mixing regions represents a bottleneck to processing and a challenge to the generation of reproducible product uniformity.
