I'm a freshman in college, and this past semester I had the opportunity to conduct my own independent research project. So I created a probably terrible manuscript, since I have yet to take a chemistry writing course. So I have my manuscript attached, any reviews or critiques would be great, since this is my first experience doing this. Given the fact I am only a freshman, my coursework has not been comprehensive enough to tell me about how the whole process works, and so my research may be amateur at best. But I still have results that I find quite interesting and would like people to see, so if there are any better approaches, please let me know, since I have very little experience in the actual area outside of performing the actual research itself.
