We had this conference in Chicago in 2016. As I was playing with the laser-cutter and making planetary motion devices see Here, I also was playing with the idea of circular slide rulers. As the calculation of elution volumes and retention in CCC and CPC are using multiplications and divisions it is possible to do these on a circular slide ruler (or a normal one) by using logarithmic scales (because additions in that space correspond to multiplications in linear scale).

Interest in the therapeutic use of turmeric and the relative ease of isolation of curcuminoids has led to their extensive investigation. Curcumin has recently been classified as both a PAINS (pan-assay interference compounds) and an IMPS (invalid metabolic panaceas) candidate. The likely false activity of curcumin in vitro and in vivo has resulted in >120 clinical trials of curcuminoids against several diseases.
