Chemical Reaction

2/9/2012 - Cacidyl oxide synthesis

     As an apology for my absence my next couple of reactions will follow along the chronological order for the history of organometallic chemistry.  The first ever synthesis of an organometallic occured in Paris, in 1760, at a military pharmacy, where there was a cadet who was working in creating synthetic inks containing cobalt salts, and in extracting the cobalt from the raw form arsenic was removed.  In this removal the As2O2 is combined with CH3COOK to produce a fuming liquid containing the organometallic product of [(CH3)2As]2O (also known as Cacidyl oxide)

I found myself blogging way too much in procrastination, so I felt it in me to create this blog to combine both my love for chemistry and my great skill of wasting time. I feel that scientific knowledge should follow along what wikipedia is producing; an open, free form for anyone to access, and I hope that this blog will bring this knowledge out to anyone who wishes to access it.

If anyone wishes to make a correction in any of my posts, or if they would like something more formally cited, please leave a message in the comments on that post and I will be more than happy to change it.
