I just noticed that malic acid (level 19) is not, according to
wikipedia, the chemical compound that is asked for in that level.

It seems to me that a missing O-H is missing in one of the Carbon atoms, if Wikipedia is correct.

You can see http://www.fao.org/documents/show_cdr.asp?url_file=/DOCREP/X3860E/X3860E24.htm has the same structural formula as wikipedia article

I am not a chemist, but... the molecule shown in level 19 appears to be Oxalic Acid:


If noone objects then I'll change the name of the level to 'Oxalic Acid' in a few days time. This avoids altering the level which would make the game play differently. And we can always add a level for Malic Acid in future...

please change the name you're absolutly right this is not malic acid but as you told oxalic acid. I am 100% certain of that :)
