Literature Discussion

Submitted by Sherzod Madrahimov, Northwestern University
Course Level: 
Topics Covered: 

The following paper will be given to the students to read at home along with the questions in the attached document. Students will be allowed to discuss their answers in small groups and refine their answers, before the corresct answer is revealed.

Origins of Enantioselectivity during Allylic Substitution Reactions Catalyzed by Metallacyclic Iridium Complexes.

Learning Goals: 

In answering these questions, students will learn to use 2D-NMR and NOE to assign protons in an organometallic complex.

They will also gain some experience in analyzing published material

Implementation Notes: 

The paper is quite a long one and students should e given ample time to address the questions and encouraged to skim through the paper.
