You might think that that would take quite some work, but it turns out to be surprisingly easy as long as you have a good oven and some salts lying around. This has been demonstrated by Zoe Schnepp (of the newly formed Schnepp Group at the U. of Birmingham)in collaboration with Yuanjian Zhang, Martin Hollamby, Brian R. Pauw and others. The work has just been published here, and has already made the university front page with this press release.
