Scientists Love Adverbs or: What Would This Look Like for Organic Chemists?

Over on his blog, bioinformatician Neil Saunders wrote up a nifty little analysis of adverbs in scientific manuscripts. I wonder how it would look if he had only looked at chemistry papers.

My patriotism is vastly superior to that of Young Brando's

Disclaimer: This isn't from today, according to my camera I took this picture on 3/26/2011. Based on this date, its possibly a copper (II) sulfate wash, but more likely an aqueous workup from a stoichiometric nickel reaction. As for why its three phases, not sure after 2 years. I never had a reason to show anyone this picture until I saw Brando's. Later internet world,  I'm off to a BBQ soon.

The Most Patriotic Thing I Can Do From Here

Happy Fourth of July, everybody. I hope you're enjoying burgers and hot dogs or something.
