My poster is all about Barluenga’s Reagent,
A cool iodinating and oxidising agent.
It is known to have a solid-state transition,
But we didn’t know at what temperature position.
Variable temperature X-ray diffraction
Let us investigate the transition action.
In addition, we found something a little surprising,
Extra reflections in precession images were arising.
After some thinking we came to the conclusion,
A transient modulated phase must be the solution.
So if this poem has got you excited,
Come and see my poster…
…You are all invited!
