I won’t be posting anything new until next week – I’m going back to Cambridge to see a few days of lectures in honour of Dr. Stuart Warren’s retirement, all by ex-Warren group academics. Yes, he of The Great Green Book fame (amongst other texts he published). Thanks, Stuart, here’s looking forward to the next book!

In the mean-time, have a look this amazing quintuplet of publications by Stuart and Dr Fox in the last-but-one issue of OBC:

    I just wanted to say, that his “great green book” was the main reason I decided to take up the organic chemistry pathway.

    Well, it was a great couple of days of lectures – highlights were those by Adam Nelson, Peter O’Brian, Jonathan Claydon and Varinder Aggarwal. Stuart Warren’s own talk was fantastic, as was the news of the new book… New post tomorrow…
