I Heart You, Chemistry

February 4, 2011



There are not enough creative and inventive uses of the word fuck to amply describe the day I am having. I refuse to go into too much detail here, but it's a strange state of affairs when I actually go into the lab and do reactions in order to calm my murderous rage.

Rut roh! I hope that blowing shit up helps, Jenksy.

TGIF?

Rage against the machine, brother!

Throat punch whoever is pissing you off. I find it helps.

Calm down, take a nap or something :D

Usually it's the reactions that cause the rage!

Hope it's getting better!

sorry dude. I hope by now things are calm. BTW, what type of reaction gives you the most calmness. My most calming reaction was a good clean, undetectable Swern. Doing a Swern that no one smelled returned that tickle to my trousers... if you know what I mean. And I hope you do, because I don't.

A good Grubbs metathesis will always calm me down.

I went and did some copper-mediated cross couplings between a phenol and some phenyl boronic acids. It's a pretty nice little reaction and seems to be a relatively easy way of generating biphenyl ethers.

Plus, I can pretty much dump everything into a flask, set it to stir, and forget about it for three days. The best kind of chemistry is easy chemistry!
