Roni added, “Other names could be penicillin G potassium and penicillin G sodium…”

“What such thing! We can’t be certain about that son, we need to run some preliminary tests,” Dr. Fleming looked at the Roni in amazement.

Oh, wait…I forgot I am in the past! He doesn’t even know it’s called Penicillin. Roni realized to himself. Maybe he could help me go home, though?

“S-sir,” Roni stuttered, “could you possibly help me get home. This may sound crazy, but I come from the year 2020. Right now, I am supposed to be with my grandmother.”

“Oh my, she must be worried sick!” Dr. Fleming concluded, “I am sorry, but I unfortunately cannot bring you home because I have never dealt with a situation like this. But is this substance really called Penicillin?”

Roni sighed with defeat on never coming home, “Yes sir. Excuse me, but I must go home now. Thank you for your time.”

As Roni was about to leave, Dr. Fleming grabs him by the arm and exclaims, “Wait! I have a few more questions about Penicillin. Could you please answer the questions, and then you can leave?”

Roni answered immediately, “It is 334.4 g/mol.”
