I wish you all had a nice and happy xmas with your beloved ones and could use the holidays to rest or celebrate, whatever you prefer :)
 
And now from me, I wish you all a well and happy transition into the new year, to be healthy and successful, innovative and lucky, and at last happy of course too :)
These are my wishes regarding personal and private life, for you all.
And no, this year no pm's from me on that matter, I always fear those forgotten do mind ::)

As for our community, we are looking back at a really interesting year I find.
We had a handful of cool reactions, some theoretical novel stuff was discovered(theory for now...::)), some longer known methods were done in practice finally, some new and versatile synthetic tools were added into our toolbox and became widely used, to name just a few things.
Yet there are still likely much more ideas floating around which I have not even noticed/heard from/or no one told me about ;D
All this has once again showed us some more proof of our competence, showed us what happens when a bunch of people like us together engages in the free flow of ideas, information and experience :)
In conclusion, we can not be beat ever when we get together :D

So that is what I wish for us here in the new year, much creative energy coupled with an adventurous spirit and the willingness to try things off the beaten track, that we will get lucky with whatever we discover and can readily implement our discoveries for good use for the swarm :)

Long story short, just lets repeat all the good and cool things we achieved this year, but rather lets do at least twice as much of that next year! 8) :))

Aye, it has been quite a year for new discoveries. Not least some of the interesting boride chemistry and other modifications to simple NaBH4 reductions that widen the scope of this environmentally friendly and user-friendly reducing agent.

Better by far IMO to have to get rid of boron wastes than Hg wastes, no?

Got to say though, skeptical in the extreme that the CuCl2/NaBH4 system is creating Cu nanoparticles, rather than a copper boride. Proof of the pudding is in the eating of course, but still, one cannot help but want to know.

Hope the rest of you had a good xmas, fairly quiet one over here, just Tsath', his old man and his uncle getting together for xmas dinner, exchanging gifts and generally heading towards a food-coma.
