Hi all, 

just sterilized some used LB with bleach (mostly alkaline 
hypochlorit)  after harvesting the bucks in order to kill the 
leftovers. after a few minutes i noticed an aromatic smell 
emerging from the flasks reminding me of my past organic 

any ideas what's happening - some nucleophilic halogenation?
