RACI Chemistry Exhibition 2013 – Queensland Tour


Chemistry Interaction 2013 Exhibitions are taking place all over Australia, bringing information about Chemistry to local libraries for all the public to see and learn. Research and applications undertaken and developed in Australia are showcased as part of these exhibitions.

Healthy Chemistry
This exhibition shows how being healthy is a matter of good chemistry. A large part of staying well involves maintaining the balance of chemicals your body transforms, uses and then loses in everyday life. Some of the topics by this exhibition include:

Butterfly inspires a treatment
Folic acid was originally found in butterflies. Now, a new compound from folic acid is an affective cancer treatment against mesothelioma.

A cancer cure that’s just for you
Chemical research has developed drugs that target particular genes.

Better nano-safe than mega-sorry.

Cholesterol and fats
Healthy food is the best medicine.
