Crystals

You ever have one of those days where you do something in lab that’s totally routine, but then you encounter something that just makes you happy to be a chemist?  I had one of those today.  Most of the compounds I deal with are oils or liquids, but today I made a compound that crystallized after concentrating the organic layer after the reaction.  Nice white crystals with no purification at all.  That freakin’ rules.

I kinda want to try to sublime it now, because sublimation is easily the best part of chemistry.
