I’m thinking Prof. A is unaware of the wonderfulness of porphyrin synthesis. If he isn’t, it would be nice if he remembered that the molecules don’t look at his CV before they decide how many of them wll become product.
Looks like you didn’t even get rid of all the other crud off the sides of the filter yet. Maybe only 4% yield after all.
Who is the professor? Someone organic?
Yeah, I’m curious who that is.
It’s EJ Corey.
He is not amused.
It is indeed Elias James Corey. The image is a screen-cap from this YouTube video. The porphyrin picture is from Wikipedia. The Ali pic was from a GIS.
