Day umpteenth, doing stuff.

Hey, what does one write about progress in studies that doesn't go in the lab book? Put it in a blog! Today I tried to run the instrument, but the Varian GC oven wouldn't cool. I don't understand why, the problem wasn't the same as last time (i.e. this time the oven temperature control was actually swithced on!) I spent some time in the lab today, doing real chemistry! I prepared a catalyst (sodium methoxide) for the transmethylation of sunflower oil. Maybe I can try a transmethylation tomorrow.
