How to Sketch a Molecule from Scratch: Part-1

It is often necessary in various scientific disciplines to prepare sketches of molecules for project reports, research papers and teaching assignments, etc. Drawing a sketch also helps in developing the concepts in science, for example, the bonding patter in organic molecules, their valencies, etc. Educators and researchers regularly use sketches in their daily work. With the development of computing computer based sketching has become more  common and more and more people are using computers for everything for drug design, manufacturing and publications of results. Several tools are available for sketching. Here, we will see how small molecules can be drawn using an exciting and free software ‘ACDChem Sketch’ from ACD Labs. Lets begin by drawing a simple molecule ‘Indole’. The pictures below are self explaining.



You can build a larger molecule by adding side chains at the desired positions on the main Indole ring. The method is shown below.

Apart from building simpler molecule like indole…

How to test Blood: Confirmatory Tests in Forensic Practice

Preliminary examination of blood stains do not confirm the presence of blood. It merely indicates that the positive stain might be due to blood.
In order to confirm the identity of blood, there are certain crystal and spectroscopic tests that are regularly employed in the forensic science laboratories.

1. Takayama Test:

Reagent Preparation:

Standard Glucose Solution (100g/100ml) 3 ml
10% Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) 3 ml
Pyridine 3 ml
Distilled Water 7 ml
Reagents should be made fresh daily.


Procedure:
1. Place material to be tested on a microscopic slide and cover with a cover slip.
2. Add a drop of Takayama Reagentand allow to flow under the cover slip.
3. Warm slide gently at 65oC for 10-20 seconds
4. Allow to cool and observe under microscope at 100X magnification.
The appearance of pink needle shaped crystals of pyridine hemochromogen (Pyridine ferroprotoprophyrin) is positive reaction for heme.

2. Teichmann’s Test:

Reagent Preparation:
Potassium Chloride or 0.1 g
Potassium Bro…
