Nice, you might want to accept 'ylid' as this is how it's is commonly spelt in the Commonwealth

Excellent quiz! Does a good job of including stuff from different areas of chemistry.

Yikes...and I call myself an AP teacher...

Great quiz! I'm satisfied with 21/26! :)

@kezmicdust: For my part, I’m satisfied with 3/26! :-P Great quiz; would love to see ones this tough in other sciences…

Great, except that you misspelled Thomson in Joule-Thomson coefficient (I wanted my perfect score!). You should probably also accept Joule-Kelvin, since Kelvin and Thomson are the same guy.

I wonder if that spelling is why so many people missed the Joule-Thomson coefficient. I knew that a lot sooner than many of these others. Really tough quiz, 11/26 for me. But it's been 20 years since I graduated college, so "Grignard reagent" was too far back in my memory.

There should be more quizzes of thie calibre in the sciences.

Perhaps accept racemate as you've specified mixture in the question.
