This manuscript is the outgrowth of a plenary lecture delivered by the author at the 44th Congreso Mexicano de Química that was held in Puebla, Mexico from 26-30 September of 2009.
In formulating the presentation, consideration was given to thinking about the origins of the ideas that were integral to the formulation of the research to be described.
The intent was to address the younger members of the audience – advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and those beginning the process of searching for a job.
At a similar stage in my scientific career, I realized the need to formulate research plans in order to complete job applications where they were required. Where do these ideas come from? What factors stimulate one’s curiosity? What stimulates one to pursue a particular line of research? Topics discussed within the context of attempting...
