this week I’ve been mostly making …

(E)-9-oxo-2-decenoic acid

queen bee pheromone.

And what with all day in the lab doing multi-step natural product synthesisth, followed by tutorials in the evenings and trying to find time to puzzle over results, summer school doesn’t leave much time for knitting.  Including travelling time, I made just over half a monkey.

and this weekend I have to study all about catalysis but right now I am shattered and going to spend the morning reading the Gruaniad’s rebel knitting supplement, feat. Mazz!
