Graphical abstract of the week

I have a great love of the graphical abstract. For those of you who aren’t familiar, journals use them instead of wordy abstracts when you’re flipping through their table of contents. A familiar, or interesting graph or picture will grab the eye, and the world of eye-grabbing (in a good, or bad way) graphical abstracts has grown into an absurd monstrosity.

Of course, I LOVE graphical abstracts. The more absurd, the better. So I’m starting a series of posts with my favourite graphical abstracts from chemistry journals.

Today, we start with a dancing substituted benzene with a charming little hat from the article Merging Constitutional and Motional Covalent Dynamics in Reversible Imine Formation and Exchange Processes


J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2012, 134 (22), pp 9446–9455
