DEAD

Diethyl azodicarboxylate, conventionally abbreviated as DEAD and sometimes as DEADCAT, is an organic compound with the structural formula CH3CH2O2CN=NCO2CH2CH3.

DEAD is an orange-red liquid which weakens its color to yellow or colorless upon dilution or chemical reaction. This color change is conventionally used for visual monitoring of the synthesis. DEAD dissolves in most common organic solvents, such as toluene, chloroformethanol, tetrahydrofuran and dichloromethane but has low solubility in water or carbon tetrachloride; the solubility in water is higher for the related azo compound dimethyl azodicarboxylate.

Diabolic Acid

Diabolic acids are actually a class of compounds where the m and n chains can have different lengths and can contain unsaturation. They were named after the Greek diabollo, meaning to mislead, since they were particularly difficult to isolate using standard gas chromatography techniques. One of the inventors, Prof Klein, also thought that they had ‘horns like the devil’.

Lucifer Yellow (C13H10Li2N4O9S2)

It is a fluorescent dye used in cell biology. The key property of Lucifer yellow is that it can readily visualized in both living and fixed cells using a fluorescence microscope. Lucifer yellow was engineered by Walter W. Stewart at NIH and patented in 1978.

Interesting facts about our body
The human body shines in the darknessIn Japan, researchers have succeeded with more sensitive cameras to detect that human body shines. They found that our bodies emit very small amounts of light. This light is so small that a human does not register them. While this is long been known that all living things produce a small amount of light as a result of chemical reactions in the body. Now scientists in Japan for the first time in the world are managed to prove that and to record this phenomenon. 
The human body produces aspirinBy taking or eating fruits and vegetables the human body can make a personal aspirin. Thus, one study found, and proved that the human body from the acids of fruit and vegetable products, salicylic acid, a key component that makes aspirin and anti-inflammatory properties for pain.
Orgasm causes sneezingSome men feel a headache after ejaculation, while some of them sometimes start to sneeze. Greater activity in the nervous system of human body can be blamed for headaches, while for the sneezing after orgasm is responsibility the brain center. The speed of sneezes can reach up to 100km per hour and more. The record was 160km per hour. 
Our tongue has an original printIf you did not know, like our fingerprints, a tongue is different from person to person. Due to the uniqueness of form and texture of each physiological tongue, it is very important for example in determining the identity of a person. 
The skin on the feet is thickestSkin is thickest on the palms and soles, and its thickness in these parts of the body is up to 4 millimeters. It is also mentioned that skin in these parts of the human body has the most sweat glands. 
Appendix is not a useless part of the human bodyMany people thought that the appendix is just a useless part of the body, but it has a function. Appendix is some kind of a safe house for beneficial bacteria that live in the human stomach and promote digestion of the food. 
Blondes have more hair than othersThere is a lot of jokes about blonde girls, however one study found that blondes have more hair then other girls. Hair color for example revealed a completely different investigation, determine the density of hair. The average human hair has a hundred thousand root hairs, each of which can produce twenty individual hairs while the whole of human life. While blondes have on average 146 thousand follicles while people with black hair have about 110 thousand follicles. The least dense hair have a redhead people, less than 100 thousand follicles.
