Hello, and welcome to chiral jones: a blog about science, chemistry, and above all a strong desire for stereocenters. (a chiral jones, get it?)¹² Not to say that I’m only interested in methodology/synthesis of chiral everything, but I dig organic chemistry in general.
If you’ll note, my username is also chiral jones. Sure, I could have named my blog “Synthetic Fix”, and continued the whole fix/jones theme, but A) I thought chiral jones was more clever, and B) googling “synthetic fix” results in different ways to pass urine drug tests. Kinda gross. “Chiral Jones” does not.
Most importantly, I think Chiral Jones is the coolest sounding pseudonym ever! Like, a Keyser Soze of chemistry…
So, thats that. With any luck, coherent posts will start appearing soon, and with constintant frequency, I’ll have a proper “About Me,” and I’ll keep up the appearance of a decent blog!
1. As you may soon realize, I’m a sucker for wordplay.
2. Like so many other chemical bloggers, I enjoy footnotes and references where applicable.
Excuse me if things are jumbled or out of place, as I’m getting accustomed to wordpress and this whole “blogging” thing.
