Chemistry 513 / Problem Set #5 February 11, 2010 / Due: February 18, 2010 Please use SciFinder for all questions. Also, besides the answer, please indicate to me your search path so I can understand how you approached the questions and recreate your search if necessary. Don’t forget to remove duplicates. For example: Explore References Æ Research Topic Æ “antioxidants in chocolate” Choose top two groups of hits Refine Æ Language Æ English Analysis Æ Author … etc. 1. Thinking about potential problems with searching by author in SciFinder, you need to find the publications of an eminent Purdue University chemist: Robert VanEtten a. How many articles has Dr. VanEtten published since January 1, 1998? (Hint, it is NOT zero.) b. What seems to be his favorite compound to study since January 1, 1998? 2. Approximately how many patents are in SciFinder Scholar that deal with catalysts for asymmetric Heck reactions? 3. A newly hired Assistant Professor in the Chemistry Department wants to publish her
