I apologize for my prolonged radio-silence. It’s been a turbulent couple of months since I accepted my new synthetic chemistry position! I’ve been thinking quite a bit about this blog, and the direction I want to take it in from here on out. Up until now, I’ve been writing about whatever chemistry related topic I happen to find interesting.
But I got to thinking: I’m in a new role, working on complex synthetic problems outside my normal element. This blog fell somewhere between drug-synthesis (a topic already covered quite adequately by blogger Derek Lowe) and “pop-culture” chemistry. But now I’ve got this exiting new frontier of energetics and applied synthetic chemistry to talk about, from the inside.
Now I can talk about some interesting and under-reported chemistry related to weapons and explosives (maybe some drugs, too): all the stuff your mother told you to stay away from.
I’ll be learning, you’ll be learning, It’ll be great.
So, stay tuned, I’ll be making some major changes in the coming days.
