It's long ago since I posted, here are the newest things(:

At first some azulene, what crystallized out from the reactions rest.

Second: mother of all column chromatographys. A 170cm tall column, 3000g of silica, 15liters of petrolether and 5 hours till the column did what it should. Any comments? :P

That chromatography column . . .hmmm . . .the ultimatum of nerd porn?

I also like the huge glass funnels in the background and the crystal formations in the first picture are really nice....this sort of thing and crystal growing/forming has to be one of the most enjoyable aspects of chemistry:)

There's some extreme tailing going on in that column there! Cool picture, but did it turn out okay?

That's an amazing chromatography column, it's taller than I am:o:o

Did you make any TLCs to analyse the purity of your azulene?

Yepp, TLC and also NMR.

The surpise was there was a black gunk what came down on the column with the azulene, but it didn't came down with the pure azulene(:

-it wasn't my reaction, it was just in that lab where I am also and I helped a bit.

Wow beautiful Azulene. I have always been fascinated after reading about it in my chemistry textbook and now seeing it is a reality. What procedure did you use?

A similar one to what is published at orgsynth.org.

But the yields of the reaction wasn't so "awesome" as they reported...

Recently I made some metals acetylacetonates!
-Cr(III) acetylacetonate

Eddygp: why not simply post the picture when it is aleady ready?;)

Also, I have a few pics(:

Simply add ammonia to a solution of a copper (II) salt. You can easily isolate its salts. Look in Brauer in the library here for procedures.

i am getting a deep blue color by adding homemade ammonium chloride,baking soda and copper chloride crystals. i was trying to make smelling salts from ammonium chloride and baking soda by heating the whole thing and scraping the glass wall for the salt. i happened to walk past a bunch of copper chloride i had in a mayo jar and dumped it in as well.the blue liquid is nice and cool but the other jar with the rest of the copper chloride is smoking after i added a couple of drops of ammonium chloride. im staring over with better reagents for a better purple color.

DoctorOfPhilosophy isnt that a wall shelving? how big are the pockets? color code each pocket and draw all the element symbols in them respectively .neat and orderly is pretty as oppose to chaos unless chaos has bright colors.

Just thought I'd join in with a couple of pretty co-ordination compounds.


Firstly, some tetramminecopper(II) sulfate monohydrate

IMG_1112.jpg - 36kB
<hr>

Hexamminecobalt(III) chloride

hexamminecobaltiiichloride.jpg - 50kB
<hr>

And here they are side by side

tetramminecopperiisulfate1h2oandhexamminecobaltiiichloride.jpg - 46kB

The yield of the hexamminecobalt (III) chloride was, as I recall, just under 0.5%, and this actually seemed somewhat better than many others achieved.
<hr>

Also, I tried to use the site's FTP rather than attaching the images. However, although I was able to connect, the directory was read-only. Do I need to request FTP access? I read through the threads I could find on FTP and image uploads / insertion and couldn't find anything saying that any special action was required.

If I'm able to get them uploaded properly via FTP, I'll edit this post or post a new one with those images rather than clunky thumbnails.
