I was just struck by the grim realization that I probably never will get the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. I have thus been forced to come up with a Plan B for immortality. Find attached my application for eternal life in the form of a Name Reaction. I think I have what it takes:
1. I have discovered a new reaction type:
Electron-rich 1,3-dienes react with sulfur dichloride in a ring-closure fashion to give thiophenes
2. The findings are published:
Tetrahedron Lett. 2004, 45, 6049-6050. (DOI: 10.1016/j.tetlet.2004.06.016)
3. Several independent group from far, far away have reproduced my results, and they mention my name:
JACS 2008, 130, 6734-6736. (DOI: 10.1021/ja8018675)
Org. Lett. 2009, 11, 1487-1490. (DOI: 10.1021/ol9000608)
Heterocycles 2010, 82, 449-460. (DOI: 10.3987/COM-10-S(E)16)
4. Last but not least, I have a non-pronounceable last name!
So guys, what do you say? Are we good to go or what? The way I see it, this is my last chance of cheating death.
