The Three Little Chemists: A Story About Tr-Tj

Three Little Pigs Tr Tj StoryFor years, we have been discussing the value of the Tr-Tj expression (Tr = reaction temperature, Tj = heating/cooling jacket temperature). The ease of use and the valuable insight gained into chemistry from the Tr-Tj expression has already been leveraged by chemists around the world. Since I feel that there are more chemists out there who would benefit from the use of Tr-Tj on a regular basis, I thought I would tell a story to illustrate the value of the Tr-Tj expression.

An Easier Way to Complete Polymer Research Experiments in Academia

University of North Carolina 2010 National Graduate Research Polymer ConferenceThis past week, I attended the National Graduate Research Polymer Conference (NGRPC), which was hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Department of Chemistry.  A well known polymer chemist and professor from another large state university commented without any prompting from me that he really would like to change from using round bottom flasks to using the EasyMax™ for their polymer syntheses.  I saw this as a good opportunity to learn from his perspective what he felt the inherent value was of the EasyMax™, an automated lab reactor system, in academia.
