Lab tour

Will, no one else followed the "post only the banner on 10/4" and now I feel stupid. So on with the program.

This is the lab I work in. In you're not familiar with the first picture, it's an airbox which is a sealed unit where you work with air-sensitive chemicals. It's an all nitrogen environment and it's a pain in the ass to work with. You get used to it though...

Here are the deprotonated (minus one hydrogen atom) amino crystals that I posted the structure for here:

And a long shot of one side of the lab:

No, not impressive but cool to see if you haven't ever.
