Chloride, AZ not just for chemists anymore

As a chemical engineer, I just had to stop and take a picture of a town sign with Chloride emblazoned across it. Although it seems the perfect town for the chemical or chemical engineering minded, the name Chloride does not recall the acid in your stomach, or the worse half of table salt (the better half would be the positive sodium ion, Na+, get it?), but silver chloride which was mined there and created the town in the first place. Learn more about Chloride, AZ here, or about chloride, the ion, here.
