THANK YOU #9 & 22. ‘End of synthesis?’ Bullshit.

It will guide to reclaim all the ways in which your energy has been drained from you, consciously or unconsciously.

You will learn to remove all the ways in which you have been seeking and draining energy from others consciously or unconsciously.

Experience your own personal journey of becoming whole through a connection and grounding to infinite divinity.

You will discover the nature of what it is to be a truly free human being.

What is in the macrocosm is in this microcosm. -Chandogya Upanishad

Upanishads grappled with these questions: What is this universe? What is man? What is his destiny? Long ago they discovered that the universe of experience consists of two broad categories, the subjective and the objective. It is important to remember that this idea is basic to an understanding of Vedanta and to an understanding of whither science is going today. Now, when we apply this classification to the whole universe, we get the corollary that modern science is the study of only one of the two categories, namely, the objective field. But modern science is also trying to understand the subjective field.


The need for a Vedantic approach to science and religion is insistent today when both have shed their respective prejudices and come closer to each other, imbued with the passion to serve man and save his civilisation. It is only such a synthesis of philosophy which blends in itself the flavour of the faith of religion and the reason of science that can reconstruct modern man, by restoring to him the integrity of his being and the unity

We had the courage to try to make this compound, and we synthesized it in 1992.

*Natural Product Synthesis is one in a continuing series of Special Features. Themes of previous features have included: Supramolecular Chemistry; Sustainable Development; and, most recently, Asymmetric Catalysis. Scheduled for future issues are Chemical Theory and Computations; Long-Range Electron Transfer; and Molecular Electronics. One objective of these Special Features is to enhance the journal's ongoing initiative to expand its coverage of the physical and social sciences. PNAS continues to encourage and welcome contributions of research articles in all areas of the natural and social sciences, as well as mathematics.

We couldn’t have done what we have done in the chemistry department without his support.


The HydRegen project in the Vincent group is developing new ways to harness enzymes for producing complex chemicals that are hard to synthesise in the laboratory and to provide more sustainable methods for making the essential chemicals we rely on every day.

Total synthesis: Expanding the art of ..

Wow, a lot of hate for this work here in the comments. I agree with Derek’s perspective though and it makes me (an organic chemistry PhD candidate) sad and kind of worried. Sad that this field that I love might one day be thought of the way I think about peptide coupling chemistry (Ech!). Worried that my job prospects might be highly limited in 20 years time.
This is clearly very good work and I think people need to understand that this is not the final product, but rather a proof of concept that, for the first time, shows that fully automated synthesis is entirely possible. Yes, the process is limited to sp2-sp2 (and primary sp3) coupling at the moment and we haven’t yet made an infinite catalog of BMIDA compounds, but these are only challenges that will eventually be overcome. The battle has only just begun, but it has already been won. Cheers to Burke and his students though, truly fantastic work.

Thieme E-Books & E-Journals - Synthesis / Issue

Burke has always been a shameless self promoter. Anyone whose worked with boronic acids no they stick to silica. The only cool thing is that Burke figured out a way to capitalize on it. Nevertheless,it’s a different turn on combichem/diversity oriented synthesis and the fools in management will eat it up.
