@Zhe without doubt, must've been very easy for you :P But I like to think of those upvotes in a way that: they validate how well you explained a topic to others who didn't know about it (which you excellently did!), not how well you already knew about it yourself; so I insist you to keep on answering beginner questions, they really help ^_^

@Martin-マーチン (and anyone else improving my suggested edits) Could you please leave a short, template comment like "I improved your edit" directed at me whenever you improve my edits. I checked everywhere, and apparently it's impossible to be notified when someone improves my edits, instead of just accepting them. Your improved edits help me a lot to learn mathjax/latex/how to do that stuff more neatly, so I'd really wish to view them and try not to repeat the same thing in future, thanks! ^_^

@GaurangTandon i'll try to keep that in mind, but no promises. When you review these changes, you don't have the possibility to add a comment. You'll need to open the question separately, and if there are a couple of edits, I will probably just forget. Don't worry too much about it though, I find you have quite a good track record of suggesting edits, and it helps a lot. so adding a few things here and there is no problem.
5:27 AM
@Martin-マーチン ok thanks ^_^

@GaurangTandon there's an FR on meta.SE to be able to add a comment while improving an edit.
8:51 AM
@M.A.R. already seen that proposal and added my upvote and comment to it as well ;)

Q: Sp5 hybridization in cyclopropane?

pH13 - Yet another PhilippI have never before heard/read about something as a $sp^5$ hybridization. Today, Henry Rzepa's blog post made me aware of the existance of such a bonding system. That made me search a little bit and I found an entry in a german chemistry forum, where this question was also asked ... they answered...

@M.A.R. link or it didn't happen
@BountyHunter vote heavily on that one!
@Martin-マーチン meta.stackexchange.com/q/261053/256391 though I just noticed it is tagged "support" instead of "feature-request"
11:17 AM
I concur with that post, if it was improved it was still useful. I see that you want to get even better, but that just takes time, don't force it. My initial edits were not complete and I still makes mistakes. Sometimes it needs more than one mind. Don't worry about it.
11:28 AM
Alright ^_^

@GaurangTandon this is the better kind of edit, one that tightens up the wording and readability: chemistry.stackexchange.com/revisions/51962/2
Why is there so much space around the solidus "/" in \pu{-1181 kJ/mol * 1 mol}? That looks wrong.
$$\pu{-1181 kJ/mol * 1 mol}$$
meh, mathjax in chat isn't working again
I guess you're supposed to use $$\pu{-1181 kJ/mol} \cdot \pu{1 mol}$$
Probably because * in \pu is used for compound units.
"-1181 kJ/mol * 1 mol" is not permissible anyway
as it is written in the post
1:43 PM
@pentavalentcarbon yes, I always forget about the \begin{align}, it's excellent! Though half way through that edit I had thought I was never going to finish it, but then decided to finish it anyway :P thanks for improving!
2:19 PM
@GaurangTandon don't worry about not using it, it's a pain and not important for stuff that isn't actually equations
being picky about most formatting stuff here just isn't that worthwhile since mathjax is a pos
2:57 PM
I don’t know, it could have been a browser issue and i wasn’t really inclined to investigate.
3:13 PM
@GaurangTandon That's very generous of you
@orthocresol I should use slash pu a lot more than I do right now, which is not at all
@Zhe I prefer "not at all".
3:40 PM
@Zhe an upvote? Come on
@M.A.R. No, everything else he said...
@Zhe an everything else he said? Come on
Q: Formaldehyde (37%) storage

Maria FShould Formaldehyde (37%) be stored at 5 degrees C or lower? Will it damage the Formaldehyde?

I recommend direct sunlight
4:12 PM
Q: Which temperature to subtract from which when calculating a difference?

BurnMyChemBookIs $\Delta T$ solved by using: $T(\mathrm{final})-T(\mathrm{initial})$? Or $T(\mathrm{initial})-T(\mathrm{final})$? I am getting some conflicting info from class and online.

Ugh, someone should probably delete this
@M.A.R. Self-deprecation is my preferred mode... :/
@Zhe I'm just playing dude
@M.A.R. I know
I'm running low on wittiness today
Cool. Teach that to penta
So he'd stop trying to make puns as awesome as mine
I don't want to mess with someone who's got an extra bond...
4:25 PM
Good grief. I did like, 19000 reviews right now
Hi @Rick. Welcome!
@M.A.R. Hi
The reviews just kept coming
@Zhe nah, his bonds are Chinese
Nothing to worry about
I am not Chinese
Your bonds are not you
I am hungry
4:30 PM
They can be Chinese
And poorly made
@pentavalentcarbon you're a whole country?
I find that unacceptable
"you'd argument" isn't grammatically correct
I edited it.
but my comment on your incorrectness is for eternity
It would be INVALID for eternity then
people are more likely to believe me than you
4:35 PM
Why? Because your name is italic?
Guess what, mine is italicker
argumentum ad verecundiam
I still don't understand the ice cream argument

@Zhe at first I wanted to use Jacobsen's original procedure for the asymmetric imine cyanation, but that Org Lett paper you cited (doi.org/10.1021/ol902540h) looks so much easier...
I think I was looking for substrate generality
I've done this enough times where if you show me a substrate table, I will immediately tell you if I will use it in a synthesis or not
Happy Chinese New Year
9:32 PM
@Zhe Haha. Well my current project would probably fail that test
@orthocresol That just means it's bad for synthesis exercises...
It doesn't mean it's a bad project
I have yet to be convinced of its utility in real synthesis.
