December 29, 2008

I would be remiss in not mentioning that yesterday marked the 5-year anniversary of the fire that ultimately killed Sheharbano (Sheri) Sangji while she was transferring t-butyllithium in the laboratory of Professor Patrick Harran at UCLA.  

Stay safe in the lab, folks.

  1. Thanks for this. As a biochemist I can see that organic chemistry synthesis is a totally different animal that you have to be trained to handle. It makes me realize that I am NOT qualified to teach organic chem lab unless I receive some kind of training somewhere.
