what's in YOUR freezer?

I've come across a fair number of inorganic chemists who seem to think they have a monopoly on the pretty-colored solutions. This post is intended to prove them wrong. See?


I am in the midst of two solid weeks of exams, papers and pretty much hell. So I've been a little behind with this updating thing. Oops! After all this is over with, I'll have several weeks of no classes, and then...THEN I will have some serious chemistry for you. Until THEN, enjoy the pretty colors.

Hey!
What's in those flasks? I must admit that those inorganic chemists have a point. Most organic compounds are rather blend looking. That's why organometallic chemistry is the best. You get all the nice colours with the aspects of organic chemistry! :D

Forgot to say good luck with those exams!

My fridge is a happy habitat for moulds and other fungi, as the cleaners closed it over the holidays [1] and I haven't be kissed by the muse yet for inspiration to clean it. Colours are rather boring - grey and white and black and grey and white and...

[1] I just wonder why I actually cleaned it, clamped a kitchen-towel into the door, put a big "PLEASE, DO NOT CLOSE" sign onto it, and fixed it with sticky tape... As I said, I'm haunted ;-)

When inorganic chemists see color, it's their product. When organic chemists see it, it's an impurity. ;)

In the flasks? Lotta carbon, some hydrogen, couple of heteroatoms but no scary transition metals. And...ohhhh yes, these are the products.
Two classes finished!
