"The yields were lower for this experiment because an undergrad did it"
"The reaction was stirred under ambient conditions overnight because the condensers were dirty"
"we anticipate this reaction will work on other substrates including ****, ***, and ****, but we had enough results for a paper, and we were bored with this project, so we stopped"
"The aqueous solution was heated to 170 C in this reaction vessel that we did not trust; we did not enter the room while it was running"
"you have no idea how much duct tape held the apparatus together, we ran out of clamps"
"the reaction was acidified with the remainder of HCl in the bottle"
