Best of Distillations #1
This week Distillations is looking back at some of our favorite episodes: platinum, mauvine, and Damascus steel.
This week we’re looking back at some of our favorite Distillations episodes. First, we return to one of our first shows with the element of the week. Audra Wolfe explains the standards that make precise measurement possible. Next we visit CHF’s kitchen as Erin McLeary and Integral Molecular‘s Joe Rucker try their hand at making mauvine, originally featured on our color show. Finally we revisit our nanotechnology show with a medieval application of carbon nanotubes. Jen Dionisio tells us about Damascus steel in Mystery Solved! Element of the Week: Platinum.
