- You might point out in the theory of oxidation of oils, in development of rancidity in oils, that many methyls' accelerate this oxidation of oils. I do not want to burden you with a lecture on chemistry but there are some ' methyls like iron which has both a valence of two and of three. Another example is cobalt which has a valence of both two and three.

- The southern acetates must be decarboxylated to methyls .
- The most stable form has the groups staggered and the methyls as far from each other as possible (DA[dihedral angle] = 180°).
