Welcome to the Problems Website
Welcome to our new website! It is the mission of this project to provide access to problems that we have created in conjunction with our teaching activities in advanced courses in organic chemistry and chemical biology. If the first phase of this undertaking proves to be successful, we will expand the site to include problems encountered in introductory courses as well. We hope that you will find this collection of problems to be educational. Feedback would be most welcome. For those of you that have problems that you would like to submit, send them to me on our downloadable ChemDraw template. If they are accepted, your authorship will be noted.

SEMIBULVALENE
From Problem 1. This "one-pot" synthesis of semibulvalene was reported by J. Sauer (Eur. J. Chem. 2002, 791-801). This video requires Quicktime.
