Almost done synthesizing a series of new lanthanide crystals!! Can’t wait to get all of em done with structures solved. Gonna get Raman, UV-Vis, and possibly magnetic properties as well. Gonna be my first paper ever!! First or second author!! What’s up?!?! Hopefully first, but there would be tons of work involved in that too. Good things are in the future.

We are all star matter. We’re literally made up of atoms from supernovas and explosions from neutron stars and white dwarves. That’s how cool we are.
This fucking achem2 lab report is terrible. Just exhausted and wanna get this over with. #HPLC
Finishing up this Inorganic lab report. It’s actually pretty damn easy relative to the other ones. haha! Tumblr is obviously distracting me…. lul. Still need to get some data from my lab partner. Didn’t get much sleep…. :/
Aiight, lemme hop on this report so I can have some breakfast.
Made a new compound today!! What is good!??!?!?!? Can’t wait to look at the data tomorrow. This is a possible start of a publication!
Just started a reaction with Uranium Tetrafluoride. First time handling a radioactive compound! :) It was a super fine aquamarine powder. A super beautiful compound. I wish I could take a picture, but I can’t take my phone out while I’m weighing out any chemicals and running a reaction.
Had to wear a mask too while weighing it out. After I put all the shit in the autoclave, we had to do a swipe test and made sure nothing spilled. Checked for radiation and stuff. Geiger counter and what not. Just to weigh out like… 37mg of it. (0.037g).
Pretty exciting cuz that was my first time actually “touching” and working with em. I see em all over the lab and what not but still. Lol.
