Sterner-Elser human molecular formula
In hmolscience, Sterner-Elser human molecular formula (TR:26) (LH:2) (TL:28) refers to a 22-element "empirical molecular formula" for a human, calculated in 2000 by American limnologists Robert Sterner and James Elser, and published in their Ecological Stoichiometry.
In 2000, Robert Sterner and James Elser, two American limnologists, derived a 22-element "empirical molecular formula" for a human, based on the the classic six CHNOPS-elements: C, H, N, O, P, S, plus the following 16-elements: Ca, K, Cl, Na, Mg, Fe, F, Zn, Si, Cu, I, Sn, Mn, Se, Cr, and Co.
The Sterner-Esler human "empirical molecular formula", which shows the the simplest positive integer ratio of atoms present in compound or molecular species, is as follows:
