About The Blog

Chiral Jones is a blog about organic chemistry, life as a student, and sometimes just about science in general. The name comes from an organic chemist’s desire for asymmetric synthesis – a chiral jones. Clever, right?

The blog is generally a highly casual conversation about relatively advanced concepts (to lay people, anyway). It’s sometimes a bit tongue-in-cheek, but it’s how I like it.

    Hey man,
    I’m a chem undergrad at berkeley. Can you recommend any texts on total synthesis?

    I want to synthesize Diazonium Salt of Direct blue 71 Dye (Diazotization), i.e. to convert the primary amine to Diazonium N=N. I am unable to find any similar research in literature for dyes.
    I tried following the method given in literature for diazotization of primary amine, but this method involving HCl and NaNO2 is not working with the dye.
    Thank you.
