Hi everyone!

Hope you and your family members/friends are well!

I was thinking we could use this thread in order to share things we are doing to enhance our personal statements.

If you are in year 12 and doing a Chemistry related degree, this is the space for you!

Hi,
I am currently writing an article, I have been to some lectures and will be looking at watching some online lectures and podcasts.

I’d recommend reading books on ur subject, or doing MOOCs around your subject to gain ur competitive edge

Book about the truth is this Although the lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activator NO-1886 shows antiobesity effects in high-fat-induced obese animals, the mechanism remains unclear. To clarify the mechanism, we studied the effects of NO-1886 on the expression of uncoupling protein (UCP) 1, UCP2, and UCP3 in rats. NO-1886 was mixed with a high-fat chow to supply a dose of 100 mg/kg to 8-month-old male Sprague-Dawley rats. The animals were fed the high-fat chow for 8 weeks. At the end of the administration period, brown adipose tissue (BAT), mesenteric fat, and soleus muscle were collected and levels of UCP1, UCP2, and UCP3 messenger RNA (mRNA) were determined. NO-1886 suppressed the body weight increase seen in the high-fat control group after the 8-week administration (585 +/- 39 vs 657 +/- 66 g, P < .05). NO-1886 also suppressed fat accumulation in visceral (46.9 +/- 10.4 vs 73.7 +/- 14.5 g, P < .01) and subcutaneous (43.1 +/- 18.1 vs 68.9 +/- 18.8 g, P < .05) tissues and increased the levels of plasma total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in comparison to the high-fat control group. In contrast, NO-1886 decreased the levels of plasma triglycerides, nonesterified free fatty acid, glucose, and insulin. NO-1886 increased LPL activity in soleus muscle (0.082 +/- 0.013 vs 0.061 +/- 0.016 mumol of free fatty acid per minute per gram of tissue, P < .05). NO-1886 increased the expression of UCP3 mRNA in soleus muscle 3.14-fold (P < .01) compared with the high-fat control group without affecting the levels of UCP3 in mesenteric adipose tissue and BAT. In addition, NO-1886 did not affect the expression of UCP1 and UCP2 in BAT, mesenteric adipose tissue, and soleus muscle. In conclusion, NO-1886 increased the expression of UCP3 mRNA and LPL activity only in skeletal muscle. Therefore, a possible mechanism for NO-1886's antiobesity effects in rats may be the enhancement of LPL activity in skeletal muscle and the accompanying increase in UCP3 expression. with a spike protein ..That would cure Corona

The standard book is Why Chemical Reactions Happen. It’s a cliche, so if you’re applying anywhere where they interview make sure you’ve read and understood it completely before putting it down

The Oxford Chemistry Primers are a good source focused on specific topics and much less likely to be cliched if you’re interested in an especially niche topic

The articles from Chemistry World can also be really good, though there’s a monthly limit to the number you can read on one device

Are there any MOOCs people suggest? Unfortunately all the ones I've been able to find don't actually start until like June.
