Few time lapse trials

I am just learning here. So go easy on judging! The first three are taken using the Hyperlapse app. While the last one is taken using iPod + iPhone camera's time lapse feature and then edited using iMovie.

Algorithmic discovery of One Pot reactions

I am always interested in research and technology development that challenges the status quo, and gives an alternative way to do things, preferably using a computer algorithm. The paper by Bartosz Grzybowski and co-workers is one of these (see One Pot reactions is currently more of an individual skill rather than a rigorous process that can be implemented in a computer algorithm. The paper published in Angewandte Chemie in 2012, address this exact issue. I am sure that this is a solvable problem, and when it does get mass acceptance, a lot of cost savings may be achieved.
