Have you ever felt like your reactants were trying to apologize? Chemists often have to cope with failure. A reaction doesn’t work as described, an analysis yields no useful answers, or a simple human error sets you back weeks. Recently, Lucia Feriancova, a PhD student at Comenius University, in Slovakia, got a bolus of commiseration—from her chemicals. Though they didn’t react as expected, they spontaneously formed this frowny face on the bottom of her Schlenk flask. Submitted by Anna Eliasson⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

ANOTHER CHEMISTRY LAB DONE!! 🔬 I was feeling nervous before hand, but after going in I realized that I had done all the prep work and was pretty prepared! ✅ I’ve still got lots more to do so it’s back to studying 👉📝
Bis(pyridine)iodonium tetrafluoroborate (Barluenga’s Reagent) is an iodinating and oxidizing reagent that is capable of iodinating alkenes and aromatic compounds regioselectively under mild conditions. Moreover, the oxidizing reactions from various alcohols to the corresponding ketones and aldehydes using this reagent have also been reported, which shows its usefulness and versatility.

I feel so lucky to even get a chance to be inspired by such a great scientist and 2018 Nobel Prize recipient Frances Arnold! 🤩 Lisede kimyayı bile sevmezken, üniversitede şimdi bitince nolacak derken bir anda kendimi Nobel Ödülü almış biriyle konuşurken bulmam... Üniversite hayatım boyunca çoğu zaman “Boğaziçi ama kimya mı?” triplerine maruz kaldım ama şu an temelinde bilim olmadan mühendisliğin eksik kalacağını takdir edebilen bir ortama kendimi atabilmiş olduğum için çok şanslıyım. Doktorada öğrendiğim bi şey varsa o da başarının tesadüf olmadığı ve yapılmazı yapmanın hep bir yolu olduğudur. Ben daha oralara gelemedim ayrı mesele. 😌 #mindblown#nobelprizechemistry#francesarnold#motivationoftheday#tuftsuniversity#chemistry
