As an organic chemist I can confirm that this procedure is legit. It reads exactly like a bona fide journal article. The whole thing is obviously tongue-in-cheek, but I think (hope) that anyone would realize this :)
I can't vouch for the Chemistry (Sorry, Dr. Ngoi), but I think the writing is brilliant!And I would hope that people know what "apocryphal" means.
The chemistry is pulled directly from the Blagg and Davies paper cited. No unique thoughts went into this other than those meant to couch it humorously.
But what I admire is the unique thoughts that went into the humorous couching! Honestly, I don't really give a damn about the chemistry.
