So, I just got my conformation yesterday. I made a molecule that no one else has ever made before. I check the the journals and databases, and nada. I'm the first one to make this structure, and I got it to crystallize with copper. That in itself may be enough to get me published. Over the rest of my time here, I will probably be trying to get it to crystallize with a lanthanide. Then I know I will get published. Hello grad school.
