Most Popular in Synthesis
Daniel Martin recently published a procedure in the Journal of Organic Chemistry that requires synthesizing nearly a mole of 4-tert-butyl-2,6-dinitrobenzylbromide as an intermediate. The NMR looked clean, so he thought it might be worth trying to grow a few crystals overnight. The next morning, he found the beaker full of success shown, with single crystals up to 7 grams apiece. “Needless to say, our crystallographer was very happy,” Martin says.
