  1. Diels-Alder reactions

    Hello friends I dont understand how the end product is the answer. I have labeled the partial charges. Did I do them wrong? My reasoning is that the ph are EDG. thank you in advance

    There are two ester groups so I think it's a Dieckmann condensation, but that CN is making me nervous. I think the esters make the alpha more acidic than the CN does that is why I deprotinated the H by the ester. Any help is appreciated thanks

    very helpful thank you!
  4. grad school

    I've looked at some school requirements and all they say is 2 years of undergrad lab work. Some-kind of experience is better than no experience I guess. thanks

    Hey, I'm majoring in microbio and I want to pursue a PhD/MD. Does it matter what type of research I do as an undergrad? I am trying to get into a microbio lab but the spots are limited, but there are some spots open in some biomedical labs. Would it look weird if I got a position there?
  6. neutral nuc: acidic conditions

    ahh yes thank you
  7. neutral nuc: acidic conditions

    the OH
  8. neutral nuc: acidic conditions

    The water because it is under acidic conditions?

    Hello, I don't understand where the H3O+ comes into play, so I could have missed the mark by using the base as acid base chem instead of using it as a acyl transfer.
  10. esters: hydrolysis

    So i think this is a hydrolysis of an ester, but I'm not sure. If it is, do I need to add water as a solvent? Most of the examples I have seen with an ester under basic conditions is that there is H2O written alongside the anionic base. Thanks in advance
  11. neutral nuc: acidic conditions

    I just don't understand why it can't chill in 3rd form. I can memorize the mechanism but I'd prefer to know.
  12. better late than never? Why does the OH leave in the 4th step? why does this need to happen? thanks in advance
  13. ester hydrolysis: org 2

  14. ester hydrolysis: org 2

    awesome thanks!
  15. ester hydrolysis: org 2

    Hey so my professor did this example in class and drew one of the products, but he didn't mention the leaving group product that results. I have drawn the product I think that would result from the leaving group below. I don't know if it's correct. thanks in advance
