/Chem/bros, if you like organic synthesis check out my newest video on pagodane. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6F8-lu0owQAlthough it seems quite useless beyond its complexity and aesthetics, it has some nice learnings to teach us
>>15285774Make styrene -> phenylacetone video.
>>15285791If you want to cook meth, better check out non-youtube sources - although there is this guy: https://email@example.com
>>15285797I just want to recyclate all the styrene into something usefull.
>>15285797Well all the sources list various ways, but I never found a full guide on how to styrene -> phenylacetone, that's as simple as it can get.
Bump for any other ideas some of you might have (preferably non drug related lol)
>>15285774Good video. Well done.Do you think aromaticity is still a worth while term? Do we still need it or has it simply been grandfathered in to the lexicon to such that we take it for granted?
>>15288426Thanks!! Definitely need to keep it, and keep pushing our boundaries of understanding (special cases like the one in video or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homoaromaticity), to help understand quantum mechanics and physical chemistry better
>>15285774more like fagodane amirite
>>15288727>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HomoaromaticityThis is what I mean. Why should something be "homoaromatic" as opposed to simply "aromatic". Just look at the iupac definition https://goldbook.iupac.org/terms/view/A00442The term is bloated and fuzzy, and constantly being diluted with more discovered types of aromaticity. You don't need to invoke a special property called aromaticity or resonance to explain away the characteristics of benzene or dodecaborate.
