This week’s forays into the wonderful world of Raney Nickel catalyst have filled my bench with some beautiful green nickelous solutions (not to be confused with this guy.)
After struggling to describe the exact shade of green in my pear-shaped flasks (radioactive vomit green? tree frog liver green? Rachel Green?), I decided to collect all of the green objects in the lab for comparison.
Katie was disappointed that I had not plucked out one of my seductively green eyes for this viridescent smorgasbord, but alas Sarah was using all of the forceps for stuffing columns. Incidentally, green eyes are one of the many traits I share with the greatest man who ever lived, Harry James Potter. I am looking forward to seeing his biopic on July 15th, and you should too.
