One of the things I've postponed is working with my hands. I used to do watercolor painting but gave it up in the 1970s. I enjoy doing woodwork. I make bits and pieces of furniture. I also developed an interest in silver smithing, making round things from a flat sheet. Whether or not I now have the appropriate skills remains to be seen. I have a number of hobbies, including my garden. Neil Bartlett 47 Is there any compound that you would have liked to make and never succeeded1? Gold hexafluoride is a molecule that I have long wanted to make because it should have an electron affinity one electron volt higher than that of PtF 6 .
