Launch of column "Thought Experiment" in Chemistry World- 1st piece: Why do we still do chemistry?
(September 2020) Chemistry world, the magazine of the Royal Society of Chemistry, is launching a new column on philosophy called "Thought Experiments".

I ask whether quantum mechanics is making the subject of chemistry obsolete.
