Not exactly sure how this works, but I have an article I'm going to add to the pre-publication sub-forum for review, etc.

Use of Iron-Cyanide Anion Salts as Indicators Rev. 1

I plan to write up a Prepub article on recrystallisation of Sulphur from Xylenes shortly.
I don't think that has been done yet?

"The chemists are a strange class of mortals, impelled by an almost insane impulse to seek their pleasures amid smoke and vapor, soot and flame, poisons and poverty; yet among all these evils I seem to live so sweetly that may I die if I were to change places with the Persian king" - Johann Joachim Becher, 1635 to 1682.

Writing an article about an Aluminum/Gallium/Indium/Tin alloy that can substitute for Al/Hg in nearly every case, but without the toxicity that's characteristic of mercury.

Synthesis of ethylbenzoate


I finished my epic synthesis yesterday and now I'm compiling/translating the results into a Prepublication entry. Took some pictures as well, so you will get eyecandy too :-)

It was really "epic", lasted for 4+ days, utilized two different methods for esterification, made silly mistakes that slowed down even more the otherwise also slow progress of things.

I comitted more than five full A/4 pages of lab notes during this synthesis but in the end I reached my goal and now I have about 450 g sickeningly sweet / minty smelling water clear liquid in a closed flask.
Did I say I hate semi-micro when one can go macro? :-)

It still requires several hours of text and photo editing, translation, proofreading and such before I can upload the article. Within a few days I can finish it I hope. It will be my first prepublication attempt so please bear with me!

Synthesis of m-nitro-ethylbenzoate


The ethylbenzoate saga continues.

I'm over two batches, same procedure. The second one went more quickly and gave better yield. Ahh, the routine! :-)

Took pictures - as usual. :-)

Hopefuly can provide melting point data now on as well.

A few more days and I'll post the article.

I am currently composing a publication on the preparation of various ferrocyanide salts of copper. I intend for it to cover 3 or 4 and to be fully illustrated. I would be happy to hear recommendations on how to characterize said salts; All are inorganic, ionic and most insoluble in water.

I gave already purchase the reagents I require, gotten time scheduled at the lab for the project, and write several procedures and an abstract.

L-Proline decarboxylation trials


Started to translate/compile the results of my work with the decarboxylation of proline. It will be the essence of five months' "work", although the allocated time suffered a lot in the last 2 months due to interference from everyday life. :-)

Edit:
Finished the bulk of translation.
Now comes the picture editing, chemical structure drawing part.

1,3,5-triacetyl-benzene synthesis
and its evaluation as a potential decarboxylation catalyst

The ultimate amino acid decarbox. catalyst arrived! Three (!) different keto-groups packed in a nice, symmetrical, compact molecule, each one is ready to bind with amino groups and catalyse the shaking-off of CO2! :)
What do you think? Will it perform as expected?

I'm putting together the article, deciphering hand written lab notes from seasons ago - just kidding, my hand writing is pretty and readable. :) What is not a joke though is I just finished the prolin decarboxylation experiment with this triketone a few minutes ago so the result is as fresh as one can get! :)

Stay tuned and try not to bite your nails too excessively - I plan to upload the article within days.

Unfortunately after my announcement life intervened and I'm in quite a turmoil in these days. I regret to say that I'm not so optimistic at the moment that I can upload the article anytime soon. Please bear with me!
I'll do the posting sooner or later I'm sure, but don't know the time yet.
