In 2003, give or take a year or so, a fellow grad student showed me this hilarious paper. I’m 85% sure it was in JOC and by one of the top dogs; I mean Katritzky or someone like that. It was usually long, even for a full paper. One of the paragraphs towards the end began with – and I’m paraphrasing now:

“If you have read this long, you must be one of my students.”

I haven’t been able to track it down since. Anyone?

    Anything else you can remember about its? I’ve had a quick glance at Katritzky’s list of publications but haven’t been able to have any luck so far.

    Problem is, around that time Katritzky had at least one paper in every single issue of JOC 🙂 I’m not sure it was him even. All I remember is the above I’m afraid.

    Think this might be a needle in a haystack situation 🙂
