Teaching Resources

A-Z of Links to Name Reactions and Transformations

Science of Synthesis includes chapters that are useful as a resource for the preparation and teaching of advanced organic chemistry courses. The articles by expert chemists on particular topics (e.g., types of transformation, named reactions) can be used as a reference resource when preparing course material. They also serve as an excellent starting point for students for further reading around a topic. Furthermore, Science of Synthesis is a useful resource for students who are assigned coursework such as compiling a literature review on an area of synthetic organic chemistry, or when writing an introduction to a thesis.
