“Organic chemistry is difficult. Those who study it have alkynes of trouble”

"Organic chemistry is difficult. Those who study it have alkynes of trouble” is a pun that has been printed on several images. “Alkynes” sounds like “all kinds.”

“Organic chemistry is difficult, those who study it have alkynes of trouble” was posted on Twitter on November 3, 2011.


Wikipedia: Alkyne
In organic chemistry, an alkyne is an unsaturated hydrocarbon containing at least one carbon—carbon triple bond.[1] The simplest acyclic alkynes with only one triple bond and no other functional groups form a homologous series with the general chemical formula CnH2n−2. Alkynes are traditionally known as acetylenes, although the name acetylene also refers specifically to C2H2, known formally as ethyne using IUPAC nomenclature. Like other hydrocarbons, alkynes are generally hydrophobic but tend to be more reactive.

Organic chemistry is difficult. Those who study it have alkynes of trouble.
Explanation: An alkyne is a common type of carbon compound with one carbon-to-carbon triple bond. They are frequently used and studied in organic chemistry. It’s pronounced like “al kine.” So, alkynes of trouble sounds like all kinds of trouble.
