Dr. Barbarella thrilled an audience who asked many questions after her talk. "Chemistry is very important," the speaker underlined. "These discoveries were all serendipity," she added, describing her research, "we could not have predicted them." The speaker noted thiophenes are very interesting and useful compounds that will yield many more years' worth of interdisciplinary discoveries.
