24/40 ground glass joints

A small list of useful things (links):
Again, an open invitation to all interested in writing a blog, a hobby that will bring you millions thousands hundreds tens of dollars joy and happiness. Send me a link to your post, and I'd be happy to put it up.

Have a good weekend! 


  1. Ru is really highly thiophilic - any nonstinky water soluble thiol like cysteine, N-acetylcysteine, thiosalicylic acid or thiosulfate can be used to remove Ru from organic phase

    I should mention that Ru toxicity is pretty low, the indazole-chlororuthenium complex IT-139 (aka KP1339) was dosed intravenously up to 700mg per patient and dose (the ultimate breakdwon prodct of the drug is inorganic Ru)

  2. A book waiting to be written: The Long Haul: A Postdoc's Tales of "Life" in the Lab.

  3. I cannot see CRISPR getting the nobel prize until the drama surrounding it dies down, not to mention its apparent flaws now showing in mice.

  4. My palms get sweaty when I see tractor-trailers in Manhattan. I've never driven anything bigger than a pickup truck there, but that was enough to show the chaos of traffic (and remind me that less visibility from the driver's seat is always worse...).
