    Finally!
    Got Rg.
    Spoiler:

    I'll briefly quote from the solution: "each R representing a dot and each S a dash. This allows each of the molecules to be converted to a letter."


    Hopefully that should help. PM for more, if you can bear waiting till I wake up tomorrow.

    I feel like giving some more general tips for the c3l6 so here they are.
    Spoiler:

    1. try the question title. In my opinion this one is a little bit unfortunate but each year there are one or two questions where the answer is the question i.e the gold questions answer is gold.
    2. this challenge is more about google and wikipedia skills than chemical knowledge. get used to going to wikipedia lists and Ctrl+f to find key words/people
    3. when doing the numerical calculation questions they want atleast 3/4 s.f and you should definitely use this for the Mr of compounds. you want to know how precise they want answers there was a question that took account of electron mass
    4.in the cryptic questions (where there are clues building up to letters andwords.) use anagram solvers or use the letters you know to search for likely answers. often the background will give clues. or the question if they say who they're looking for people use a list of famous chemists.
    5.use whatever they give you whether its the units the answer wants or puns or background images.
