Several people seem to agree with suggesting molecules for designers to consider for a site background or header or other graphics, e.g.
Having done this for a public art piece and my own research group website, I think the first suggestion would be to come up with a list of molecules. Given that, we can easily generate some graphics in 2D and 3D depictions for designers to consider.
So.. What would be some representative molecules for the site design?
(To clarify, I think illustrations of atomic and molecular orbitals would be great. Similarly, ionic solids, etc... Anything that speaks "chemistry" and shows atoms, bonds, orbitals, etc.)
