Caffeine and Chocolate Molecules Earrings
Get your geek on with this set of molecules! Caffeine and theobromine—a molecule found in chocolate—are structurally similar, with the difference being an additional methyl group bonded to a nitrogen. The methyl groups are represented by a triple picot; the double-bonded oxygens are represented by an open picot. (For supergeeks, 1,3,7-trimethylpurine-2,6-dione and 3,7-dimethylpurine-1H-2,6-dione are the systematic names for caffeine and theobromine, respectively.)
