Extra Credit Winter2012: Up to 2% of your grade will be allocated for the extra credit assignment.
1) Select one specific reaction covered in class.
2) Find a specific example of this reaction in a peer-reviewed article. Reaxys is a good way to search for this.
3) Describe how to carry out the reaction in point form in your own words with enough detail that another chemist could replicate it (include all pertinent information such as amounts of reactants, temperature, time, yield, etc.)
4) Create a scheme for the reaction - for molecule pictures ChemSpider is a good source - for screenshot cropping Paint works well
5) Post on the wiki and provide a DOI link to the article
