Weeks 7-8!

Now, I am solely focused on chemical synthesis, creating the target molecule using reactants suggested by my supervisor, and conditions suggested from journals, such as solvent(s) used, the ratio of solvents if more than 1 solvent is used, the order by which reactants are added, the dehydrating a

Getting Even Busier

            In the last two weeks, I’ve spent a lot of time gathering aging data for the project that I mentioned in the last blog. I also wrote some code to quickly determine the yield of our print runs.
