Today is my first day with a small privately held biotech company that is developing self-assembling polymers for targeted drug delivery. The group and the projects are awesome – and as much as I am excited about the research and my new job, for obvious...
I have been running some hydrogenations of our polymers on kilo scale, at atmospheric pressure under balloons, and it is a bit of a chore. It would be nice to have something akin to a beer keg-sized Parr shaker and run the hydrogenation under few bars of H2,...
I have been making water-soluble polymers with biomedical applications for the last 16 months; it is quite satisfying. Some macromolecules are well behaved – they extract into organic phase if you want them to and they even precipitate as a snow-white...

Milkshake would like some help in purchasing a kilo-scale hydrogenator:I wanted to ask the readers from process groups if they worked with a low-pressure batch stirred hydrogenation reactor that they liked and could recommend for us to buy. Specifically,  we...
A long list of small, useful things (links):Stories of scientists in East Germany, from Sarah Everts. Welcome, "Not the Lab", to the chemblogosphere! This post on utility in federally-funded research has stuck with me. Jess writes about carbon capture...
Milkshake of Org Prep Daily this week reported on a fire in his lab from a potassium hydride reaction:I had a rather bad fire last Friday. I was washing a large jacketed glass reaction vessel used for polymer scale-ups, after pouring the reaction mixture out,...
