During one of his daily walks on the beach, he discovers a diary whose owner he cannot identify.

Solvent-free sodium octahydrotriborate was synthesized via a new method en route to ammonia triborane. Tetrahydrofuran borane complex solution was stirred with an amalgamation of sodium and mercury to produce the solvent coordinated sodium octahydrotriborate and sodium borohydride. The product was separated by extraction with ethyl ether and heating to remove coordinated solvent. Average yield of the final product was approximately 60%.
