Folks, I don’t know how your week is going, but mine has been quite stressful so far, so I was deeply impressed when my esteemed collegue, Simon Sprague, presented a little set of named reaction problems. With a difference. Y’see, all you need to do is connect a series of pictures with a named reaction, much in the “bee” + “leaf” = “believe” manner. I’ve linked to the problem set here, as a pdf.
The comments are now open, and the answers are posted as comment one.
PS. It’s a bit anglo-centric, so feel free to harass the UKian members of your lab for answers, and to mock their lack of pop-culture if they don’t get it…
The Story So Far…
The first correct set was completed by Dr. Mike Porter of UCL, London. Good job! Other correct answers have been supplied by James Donald at Nottingham, Davey Stoker at the same, and Dr. Helen Sheldrake of Bradford. No other correct answers yet, so keep working at it! Also, Aaron – look further down – there are 20 questions!
And in the US…
(almost) correct attempt was from Kristin, Ivan and the rest of the Jamison group at MIT. Two 1/2 questions wrong (7, 12, 15) all correct now!
Further Props to:
BaggieBoy, Lovechild of R B Woodward & Jal-frezi at Syngenta, The Spring Group at Cambridge and the AubÃ© Group at Kansas, who are all very smart. A second round to Dr. Sheldrake (Snr) of the ICR, and the Ley Group at Cambridge.
