Chemistry Joke – A Visual Organic Chemistry Joke

Chemistry Jokes

Ortho – docs Para – Docs Meta docs ?  no – Meta Physicians.

Orthodox Paradox Metaphysicians

Explanation:  We learn in Organic Chemistry while studying the chemistry of Benzene that the adjacent position on the six carbon ring is called the Ortho position, the position separated by one carbon atom is the Meta position and the position separated by two carbon atoms is called the Para position.

The proper name for the first compound shown above would more properly be something like Ortho di-DOCyl Benzene but when shown to a sophomore Chemistry student, is easily recognized as Ortho – DOCS (hence Orthodox.)  The second structure Para di-DOCyl Benzene is Para – DOCS (hence Paradox.)  Most students guess at the third structure being Meta DOCS (hence Meta physicians.)

  1. That is very funny now that you explained it further. I get it now. LOL

  2. i dont get it can sum1 explain it is a shit joke

  3. u r so righ

  4. :-) Funny and it seems to make some sense. Some chemistry knowledge came back.

  5. haha it’s really not a difficult joke to understand, it’s just based on the substituent positioning on the benzene ring.
    let’s see if anyone can get this one (unfortunately, i don’t have a picture accompaniment to make this slightly easier):

    what do you call a benzene with 2 dimes as substituents? important: they are attached to C1 and C4.

  6. Would that be Paradigms?

    [ Pair a Dimes ]
