Synthetic Problem Sessions

Welcome to the synthetic chemistry problem sessions of the Stratingh Institute for Chemistry (a continuation of our previous problem session series)!

On a roughly biweekly basis (every other Thursday from noon to 1 pm at 5174.0178, see schedule), we will discuss a name reaction of the week, solve theoretical problems and mechanisms, and deliberate over synthetic solutions from recent literature. The problem set is published on Friday the week before the problem session, so that participants have time to think about the questions beforehand. Solutions will be published online after the problem session.

Please contact the organization team for questions or suggestions!
