Christmas Break, Links, Survey

As we reach the end of Just Like Cooking "Year 1," I wanted to first and foremost thank everyone who dropped in to say hello. I hope you enjoyed it, maybe even learned something, and that my posts prompted some discussion among you and yours.

Brief Survey: What would you like to see as the Blog moves forward? More "everyday chemistry?" More reactions? More structures? More media diatribes? More "deep questions?" Or something I haven't mentioned? 

Please let me know in the comments...thanks!

In case you're up late during the holidays, and want something chemmy to sink your teeth into, here's some link love:

Synthesis of Halichondrin C (seriously, isn't Kishi like 125 years old? Still kickin' though!)
Scalable Enantioselective Total Synthesis of Taxanes (well, we're a few C-H oxidations away from curing cancer here, but it's a stab in an interesting direction)
Paul's "Chemmy" Nominations, 2011

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa to all readers. Happy New Year, too!

  1. Reactions and structures are always good -- I always learn something from reading your writing. Also, deep thoughts are welcome, too, and not even about chemistry!
