Pop Quiz: Nobel Laureates in ChemistrySeptember 10th, 2010
I love Sporcle. Love, love, love it.
If you have no idea what Sporcle is, you’re missing out. It’s a Web site where you can take all sorts of quizzes on geography, history, literature, politics, and…of course…science. Several quizzes vetted by admins are posted daily, and there’s a library of hundreds of other quizzes from which to choose.
Unfortunately, there’s not a whole lot of chemistry quizzes, except for random trivia about the elements. For instance, can you name all of the elements that have single-letter symbols? What about the elements that are six letters long? Still remember your amino acid abbreviations?

If you’re feeling saucy, head on over and give it a try. When you’re done, you can click on “see the most missed” answers to view how you stack up against everyone else who’s taken it. And, of course, feel free to brag about your score in the comments. We won’t believe you, but feel free nonetheless.
