Today, I am in a good mood, because I know that next week I am going to a conference! As much as I love looking at manuscripts and browsing through the literature for commissioning ideas, it will be good to be out of the office and listening to scientists talking about their work. Hopefully, I will get to meet and chat to a few as well! I will be staying in a little bed-and-breakfast in the evenings, and during the day I will attend talks by eminent chemists at the 22nd International Symposium: Synthesis in Organic Chemistry in Cambridge.
Is anyone else going to the meeting? If so leave a comment and I’ll make sure to look out for you. Or just come and say hello when you are there.
