My apologies for the lack of posting. Flu (or something) kept me mostly horizontal for a few days. Then, thanks to losing those precious days, I was busy doing some reactions I wanted to get done before Christmas. It just feels nicer to go on a holiday when the intermediates are done. And it’s especially nicer to come back from a holiday when the intermediates are done and ready to be wasted in the next failing reaction. Well, hope not. Purifying that 30 g by column chromatography was quite tedious.
And apologies also if someone’s comment has not appeared in the comments. I noticed that this thing has some kind of a spam filter installed by default. I managed to unspam one of them (sorry Uncle Al, didn’t mean to silence you) but I’m not quite sure if some comments were lost.
That’s it for this post. Just wanted to let you know that this blog hasn’t died in it’s infancy. It was just snoozing quietly. More chemistry-related posts coming soon.
