Unformatted text preview: topics by using UCSB library resources, and the Internet. Week 2: Continue reading the pages from your text that are listed above. From the literature, and in anticipation of the more extensive discussion of kinetics and mechanism that will continue through this week and spill into next week, begin reading: J. Org. Chem. 1985 , 50 , 2244-2251. The idea is to learn about the tools that were used, and how they were used to elucidate mechanistic detail. Interestingly, at the outset of the investigation, it was thought that the reaction might prove to be synthetically useful. In fact, a variation of the transformation was used as the key step of the total synthesis of a simple natural product. The results of the mechanistic investigation proved useful in that endeavor....
