Colors of Chemistry

One cannot help but notice the vibrant pigmentation present in different types of flowers.  The orange pigment in this flower is known to be caused by the pigment Carotenoid and fits this picture into the colors of chemistry category.  The diversity of colors present in the flower is due to the presence of different pigments and flavonoids present in the petals.

Close-Up Chemistry

I see chemistry in the frost on my car in the morning. In the night when temperatures cool, water vapor in the air looses energy and the water changes from a gas to a liquid. When the temperature cools even further, the energy is reduced again and the condensed water turns into a solid form, or frost.
