Pinterest is such a great source for game masters. Need a map for your next game? No problem. At first I thought this was my map - it looks like the designer is using a Moleskine to contain this greatness. I use one too for quick sketches.
This photo may look like a dirty flask, but on the surface of that glass there is a compound what I prepared almost 2 year ago and since then it’s in the focus of nearly all the lab work I been doing.
It’s a special heterocyclic compound what is used to make organic conductive polymers (also called synthetic metals). Sadly it’s highly sensitive to air, so if I would leave a small amount of this compound on air and go out for a coffee, I would find a black piece of polymer instead of the pure compound.
Imagine being Tony’s newfound illegitimate daughter. You meet Loki at the compound when you both are being forced to stay there at the same time. You become fast friends and decide to barrow some money and a car from your dad and runaway on a road trip.
Finally! Something was made what is a critical compound during the production of a quite special amino acid.
The fun part with this was, that I tried nearly 20 methods to obtain this compound, and all of them failed. At last I tried a Chinese recipe what said that the product will be something that could be easily converted to my molecule, but instead of that compound I got the compound what I need out from the reaction. Better news: 90% isolated yield!
It’s probably a N-benzyl substituted derivative of the recently produced red dye, but this is note sure, since someone broke the breaker what I used to store the upper organic phase before doing some analytics from it. Besides these, the picture still looks great, it’s part of my portfolio!
