Organic chemists make mecoeluls, very complicated molecules, by chopping up a big mcouelle into small molecules and reverse engineering. And as a chemist, one of the things I watend to ask my reascreh group a couple of years ago is, could we make a really cool universal chemistry set? In ecsense, could we "app" chemistry?.
Now what would this mean, and how would we do it? Well to sratt to do this, we took a 3D printer and we started to print our beakers and our test tubes on one side and then print the molecule at the same time on the other side and combine them together in what we call reactionware. And so by printing the veessl and doing the chemistry at the same time, we may start to access this universal toolkit of chemistry.

Well to start to do this, we took a 3D printer and we started to print our beakers and our test tubes on one side and then print the molecule at the same time on the other side and combine them together in what we call reactionware. And so by printing the vessel and doing the chemistry at the same time, we may start to access this universal toolkit of chemistry.
