Trivia Question For The Day

Recommended Posts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Functional group. In organic chemistry, a thiol is a compound that contains the functional group composed of a sulfur atom and a hydrogen atom (-SH). Being the sulfur analogue of an alcohol group (-OH), this functional group is referred to either as a thiol group or a sulfhydryl group. More traditionally, thiols are often referred to as mercaptans.

Talking about sulphuric smells (and trivia)...did you know that only about half the population gets smelly pee after eating asparagus? And then there are some others that lack the gene to smell it even if it is stinky. Studies don't yet appear to be conclusive if anyone wants to apply for a grant!

I wonder if there are some people with an otherwise normal sense of smell that couldn't detect a gas leak?
