15:30 - Weighed out benzalaniline and transferred to an NMR tube.
15:34 - Mixed ~1mL Methanol with about 0.3-0.5mL CD3OD, added 0.9mL (measured with a syringe) of this mixture to the benzalaniline.
16:01 - Took HNMR 1 of methanol/benzalaniline solution using 300MHz varian NMR.
16:04 - Added 0.1mL H2O to the NMR tube. Precipitate formed immediately upon addition, but dissolved after mixing.
16:09 - Took HNMR 2
16:14 - Took HNMR 3
16:24 - Took HNMR 4
16:44 - Took HNMR 5
17:24 - Took HNMR 6
