I am a professor at a small liberal arts college and would like to decorate a hallway leading to the general chemistry lab classroom. My online searching has only resulted in periodic tables. I have seen a series that highlights Nobel work in… Show more
The old Chemical Heritage Foundation, now the Science History Institute, has a lot of information on their website. Historical Biographies | Science History Institute Sarah Reisert from SHI has said you are welcome to make posters by cutting and pasting info from their website.
