  1. Just a quick question on correct terminology: is an animal detecting and moving away from a smell that either indicates danger, or else is simply extremely unpleasant, properly termed chemotaxis? Or is the term strictly applied only at the (unconscious) cellular level?
  2. Thanks for this... You know, maybe I'm making this question more complicated than it needs to be! And maybe I was a little greedy wanting a kilo from the start., when all I'm really curious about is one molecule. Basically, forget quantity, forget manufacturing process, forget naming, the only question here is this: is there any reason why it would be impossible to have a molecule consisting of those 3 elements alone? Silicon nitride molecules are commonplace: is there any chemical reason why a molecule also incorporating molybdenum atom(s) would be impossible? As for naming it, I'm
  3. Hmm, OK, well over 200 views later and no answer Having anguished over the lack of interest, I have concluded that there are 3 possible explanations: The answer is a trivially easy 'yes'. "Why's this guy wasting our time asking about SinMonNn? It's a perfectly common compound! In fact, it's a major constituent of egg cartons! I'm certainly not going to waste my time answering such a simplistic question!" The answer is a trivially easy 'no'. "Why's this guy wasting our time asking about SinMonNn? It's perfectly obvious to anyone with an ounce of chemical knowledge that you can nev
  4. My name's Simon, and I'd like to get hold of a kilo of pure SIMON! Glancing at the periodic table, I assume silicon molybdenum nitride (SiMoN?) would be simplest. Is this possible? If so, what are it's properties? If not, why not, and is there any other way to make pure SIMON? (Also, I can live with a few numbers in there, as I'm not up on my valencies!)
