Facts About Dihydrogen Monoxide Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters.

It was so much fun meeting new teachers and sharing plenty of my favorites technology tools for reading. You might have seen the picture of the tiny plane that took me to Kearney, NE in the graphic of this post.
