Hi, I'm new :)


I have been lurking on this forum for a long time. I am a mediochre chemist and a godlike computer programmer. I am here to help out. :)

I have a kickass lab too. Right now I am researching the reaction between bromine and phenol in cold DCM.

I don't know how much posting I'll be doing, but I am a huge fan.

Hi :)

Welcome aboard! A little surprised "hacker" wasn't taken already, but here we are. Maybe we can see your setup sometime in the Tour My Lab thread :)

Welcome. Settle in. Get used to the place.

And of course, if you have something good to share, go for it. A kick-ass lab sounds nice.

I would love to be proven wrong but this sounds like another incarnation of PhDChemist.

Nah, this doesn't fit his style. My finely-tuned PhD-dar is reading negative.

Heh. I am not PhDChemist. I have seen his naturopathic pseudo-science before. I hope I don't sound at all like that?

I just extracted some aspirin from pills with acetone. The filtration was a nightmare. Next time, I will try methanol.

He can certainly pretend to.

Anyway i guess saying welcome does not hurt anyway. Welcome, i hope you will have fun here. You will find lots of paranoid people here, some more justified than others.

You don't sound like PhDChemist, but you could be a little more humble about your coding skills, even if they are indeed god-like.

Methanol may work. I used ethanol and added water to precipitate aspirin, which worked well.

I am actually, really, phenomenally, extraordinarily good at programming.

I extracted about 750 grams of aspirin from five bottles of pills with acetone. I do not think I removed all of the binders. I will convert the aspirin to phenol now.

A long running troll with more sock puppet accounts then grains of sand and an equal amount of mental health issues and refuses to take his medications.


It is a shame as with medication and counseling they may be an interesting individual.
