Goo that crystallises under a high vacuum is fantasmical. The flask was quite warm afterwards. 

The material is crude phenylglycinol that I prepared by reducing phenylglycine with lithium aluminium hydride.

watching this with "Grace" by Apocalyptica playing in the background strangely fit. that is a weird phenomenon that it was still boiling under normal conditions

Sunrise flying into Sydney. Much nicer than my current view.

A community where anyone can post items to do with open research related to malaria. The OSM "Page" can only take primary posts from the OSM account, so this community is more useful for everyone else. Feel free to join and post (and set your alerts level..).

The unseen part of science

Research doesn't always go to plan. Accidents do occasionally happen. Fortunately I recovered the 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)ethanol that splattered the floor of my fumehood with minimal loss of material.

I remember this moment quite clearly. I was tired and stressed. But, research needs to be done! So, following a moment of profuse frustration coupled with a series of expletives, I manned-up, kept (reasonably) calm. And carried on.

Very excited to launch OSM Series 4. Lots of data that has come from the private sector and is now in the public domain. Very promising set, ripe for further investigation.

See also OSM blog post about this:

If you're a med chemist and you want to go straight to the detail, read the briefing document: - this will be used as a starting point to plan the first 10 compounds for the consortium to make.

The credit belongs to the man in the arena.

I'm getting lost in this site. Some really nice, motivating, pick-me-up comics.

Open science chemistry honours student @ Sydney Uni
I'm a chemistry Honours student in the Todd group at the University of Sydney. My research is on the development of a catalytic enantioselective oxa-Pictet-Spengler reaction.

I am an open scientist. I spend most days in the lab but my lab notebook (with all the data that I collect including "failures") is freely available to anyone with access to the internet (

I've also set up a simple site ( It's a place where I can summarise results, write about what I did in the lab during the day or note down thoughts about what the chemistry is doing. It is a less formal environment than my lab notebook and is a complementary source of... stuff.

The open science method means that anyone can contribute to what I'm trying to achieve. Contribution can be anything from feedback in the form of comments, suggestions or questions to setting up an account on the lab notebook and carrying out related experiments.

Feedback is fantastic in any shape or form. Everybody loves getting feedback. There is space to submit comments at the end of every lab notebook post and on my site. Google+ and Twitter are also winners.

(I work in the same lab as the +OpenSourceMalaria Sydney folks, but obviously my project is different).
