    Equilibrium questions

    Umm... :( I'll try to edit it when I have time.

    Equilibrium questions

    I think the answer from the book is actually wrong - the correct answer should be (d), that is, both adding water and HCl should favour the formation of hypochloric acid. I can't actually remember if the following is part of the HSC. I have a feeling that it's not - but the idea is simple and...

    Cyclohexene + Bromine Water

    You are absolutely correct. :p Apologies for my ignorance. I will edit the relevant sections of my post. Thank you very much. :)

    Cyclohexene + Bromine Water

    Re: Cyclohexene + Bromine Water - Exemplar Response; EasyChem To answer js992's original question, the most pedantic way to answer the question in an exam is the formation of both the halohydrin and dibromo adducts: -CH=CH- + Br2 (aq) ----> -CHBr-CHOH- + -CHBr-CHBr- + HBr(aq) This should also...

    Two Double Bonds within Cyclo Hexane

    Almost correct. :p Cyclohexadiene.

    Chemical structure drawing program

    Sounds like ChemSketch is being *too* intelligent. :p The only other program that I can recommend and know that what you described will work is ChemBioDraw. A trail is available and *ahem* however you continue using it after the two-week period does not concern me. ;)

    neutrilisation pH calculation.

    Would you mind editing that part of your post out, please? I really don't think such rule exists except in the classroom of a second-grade chemistry teacher.

    Medicinal chemistry

    Interesting enough, I've got a friend who just finished nano and he did honours with us in chem and he just got offered to do postgrad med recently. :) So, I suppose if you are bright enough it doesn't really matter what you did for undergrad (as long as it's not something non-science I suppose...

    How do you beat naturally smart people?

    To be honest, I think Tangent has given you the possible answer, but I thought I'd throw some opinions in for having been through it - in case you are not convinced by him. :) To quote some: "your UAI (or ATAR) will not matter once you have received the offer from the university that you want...

    Medicinal chemistry

    As long as you are not a lazy bum or one of those 09:01-16:59 people then you will be fine. ;) Also, when your supervisor suggests that you should do something (we are talking about reasonable and research related things of course) - do it, don't whinge or say no. I've had someone like that in...

    Medicinal chemistry

    Depends on your supervisor/school, your working habit, how much you want from it and whether you have coursework or not. When I did mine it's expected that I'm in 9 to 5 everyday. Having said that, I probably ended up doing 8-7 on most days and there were days when I was there for... well, a...

    Medicinal chemistry

    I'll be two years into my PhD the coming March. The plan is to submit by publications by the end of the year. :p Part of the reason I'm in the UK and went to Israel for the conference is actually saying hi to people in this part of the world and tell them that I might be coming back. :) I was...

    Medicinal chemistry

    That was the plan before I left Sydney. :p Having seen so many things and met so many people a lot of choices opened up all of a sudden. Also, the people whom I'm interested in postdocing with at Cambridge are mostly retired now lol. :( Given that the UK is also a bit... reserved in very many...

    ....cyclodextrin...

    Of course there has been recently developments related to cyclodextrin! :) They range from molecular devices to drug delivery. The following may be useful: I quite like cyclodextrin based [URL"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotaxane"]rotaxanes[/URL]. However this one may be a bit too technical...

    Medicinal chemistry

    ;) For me it's mostly staying up a few days in a row. :o Agreed! I made quite a lot of Harry Potter references to my friend while I was there. :p I went punting as well and it was a lot of fun! (Except that my other friends kept complaining about how I was going to capsize the punt...

    Medicinal chemistry

    Hello! :) I'm just visiting a friend in Cambridge this Friday who started her PhD there a couple of months ago. I left Sydney for a conference in Israel a while ago and since then I've been staying in North Wales doing some work with my unofficial supervisor. :p Going home for Christmas. :)...

    Me! 'cause I'm terrible at everything else. :p *Nudges*. Any of you considering doing a chem major? :p That does rock.

    UNSW vs USYD in engineering. Which is superior?

    Meh, nevermind. :) I just realised that probably none of us is contributing anymore, since it's past UAC time already isn't it? *Signs off*. :o That alone is misinforming. That's fantastic isn't it. :p I was so tempted to join them at one point only to realise then I would have...

    Does anyone have a good diagram of a vanadium redox cell?

    I did that, too! Thinking that one is very green and the other isn't. I remember getting all of the information I needed from the UNSW website when I did it. Anyhow, good luck! :)

    UNSW vs USYD in engineering. Which is superior?

    Apologies for that, it is indeed a conjecture, but... Edited: 'cause I was being an silly and wasn't reading properly :p ... that brings back to what I was implying at the very beginning of my last post. The point is that it doesn't matter when you are good enough and that you can prove it -...
