It’s pretty impressive to think about something like color being broken down to a molecular level. How easy to take for granted the amazing processes that build everything around us. I never really thought about molecules themselves having colors. I look at things from a much broader stand point, I suppose.
After gaining a better understanding of how molecules are colored, I wondered what gave them a fluorescent property. As I understand it, a fluorophore basically works along with chromophores to give molecules fluorescence. Anything with these fluorescent compounds will glow under a black light. Pretty cool.
