And so it all began…
I know what you are thinking: “Seriously, is there really need for a new chemistry blog?”. Actually, I don’t know if you are thinking that but at least I was just a few hours ago. I’ve been an avid reader of chemistry blogs for months and now I just felt that I want to have my own. So what will this blog be about? To tell you the truth, I don’t know exactly. Generally spoken, it will be about synthetic organic chemistry. But what specifically? That I don’t know.
And what’s with the name? I’m a big fan of total synthesis and if there wasn’t the great site called TotallySynthetic, I would probably write a lot about total synthesis. So I’m a big fan of that site, as you probably could have guessed from the name of this blog 😀 That’s where the Totally part comes from.
I’m also really interested in reaction mechanisms. I like knowing how things happen, not just what happens. So I was thinking that I want to write about reaction mechanisms. And that’s how I came up with the name TotallyMechanistic (actually I think someone was suggesting that or something similar some time ago in TotallySynthetic). Had I more imagination, I might have come up with something more original but this will have to do, at least for now.
I don’t know exactly how often I will be posting but once a day is what I’m aiming at.
See, I don’t know much yet. But thank you for stopping by and welcome back. I hope I’ll have my first real post up by then.
