Happy and relieved to see you back here Ron!

Ron,

In the future, I recommend that you no longer schedule illness. If they are not on the schedule, then they can't happen.

Get better.

actually, a few times I felt like I had discovered a new retch gas. Its name was "polybathroomfluorine"! :(

Eeewwww!

I try to avoid fluorinated compounds when I can. Well, except teflons...

Make sure you take it easy for a while. And get that neighbor kid to shovel the snow for you this year.

Kirk;

Have not seen any kids lately, much less any to shovel. First real snow today, about 1" and it stayed all day.

And, if you have ever been prescribed Triamcinolone, well that is the fluorine derivative of prednisone! (and no, I did not have that but I do know the structure)

That is just TOOOO funny, Ron! I think I know that one off the top of my head so I'll give it a try (they prescribed it for me a few years ago)-

9-fluoro-11,16,17-trihydroxy-17-(2-hydroxyacetyl)-10,13-dimethyl-6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17-dodecahydro-cyclopenta(a)-phenanthren-3-one. Since I'm going from memory I might have inadvertently rearranged something.

It also has another name which IIRC has "pregna" somewhere in it but I never bothered trying to memorize that one-

I reread Fieser and Fieser "Topics in Organic Chemistry" last month and just remembered that one. My advanced organic was slipping away and this was a good refresher. Tri = 3 steps Amcin = American Cyanamide Olone = Steroid derivateve. That is the naming convention for this puppy!

When I was studying organic chemistry, I asked the professor about using deuterium-oxide to replace hydrogen in a ring to produce orthodox and paradox.

I have wondered on occasion how its name was derived, as the "am" and "cin" didn't make sense to me as I didn't see any amine or cinnamic-related stuff in the structure. But I'm just an amateur...

Thank you for the information. No kidding, it has been puzzling me for a while.

Using that analogy with D2O, you can create p-keet and Ferrous Wheel. My favorite is K9P (nona-potassium phosphide).

Now you see why I am studying up again! :D

Nothing like a little light reading!

I expect when you were in retching, your wife gave you plenty of Leave-u-alone!

Today, I printed out what I hope will be the final version of THE BOOK! Version 8 sits here on the table ready for a final read.

If it passes muster, it goes to the printer this week (weather and health permitting ;) ) or at the latest next week.

So, there it is. Don't be too hasty or optimistic. Last reading uncovered about 10 pages of tiny spelling errors and two major errors which were corrected. Seems as if nothing nowdays is perfect.

So, you know what I will be reading today!

I used to work doing Paste up at a huge printing company and they always had changes even as the publication was going to press that evening. All kinds of changes, all the time.

My advice is, don't be hasty.

I'm not Michael. I've already found two figures with captions spread over different pages and some other odds and eds. I'm about 1/2 done with the edit and will do the changes in the master copy next.

Thanks.
