tips on how to ace advanced organic chemistry final? polar felkin-anh, diastereoselective Aldol, allylation, [3+3] cycloaddns, hydroboration etc.
went through everything multiple times but lack a stack of 'exercises' because that's what really hammers the stuff in. searching for publications and rationalizing the outcome on my own seems too overkill time wise, so no idea where I should really get practice from to be able to apply the concepts of conformational analysis in harder settings
>lack of exercises
yeah that will happen, this MIGHT be useful
perhaps the best approach is to look through some notes by a different author
the Boger notes for example
Wow, didn't expect an actually helpful answer this fast! Thanks, the lecture notes Approach seems very interesting. Currently going through
seems really good as the contents were literally what we did
only problem is that the exam will be 5 pretty demanding problems in 1 hour, so I'll have recognize shit immediately or I'll be fucked
I wasn't aware of that book.
