Water - the compound of life

Just when you thought it was safe to put away your chemistry set, I'm back again with the Royal Society of Chemistry's Chemistry in its Element podcasts. 'But hold on there one cotton pickin' minute,' you say. 'I thought they'd done all the elements?' And you'd be right. The RSC's interactive periodic table now has an entry for every element you might like to hear about (and one or two you wouldn't). But this is series II. Yes, like Arnie in Terminator, we'll back - and this time it's compounds. We're taking no prisoners.

I was given carte blanche to pick a compound, any compound, and couldn't resist starting with water. It's kind of useful stuff, after all. So click here to have a listen, or select it from my ever-growing chemistry podcast list below.
