Sarpong and Tantillo have examined the acid-catalyzed Prins/semipinacol rearrangement of hydroxylated pinenes, such as Reaction 1.1Rxn 1Interestingly, only the fenchone scaffold products, like 1, are observed and the camphor scaffold products, like 2, are not...
It never hurts to promote ones science through clever names think cubane, buckminsterfullerene, bullvalene, etc. Host-guest chemistry is not immune to this clich too, and this post discusses the latest synthesis and computations of a nano-Saturn; nano-Saturns...
I recently posted on a paper proposing 1,2-benzoquinone and related compounds as the diene component for bioorthogonal labeling. Levandowski, Gamache, Murphy, and Houk report on tetrachlorocyclopentadiene ketal 1 as an active ambiphilic diene component.11 is...

The role of dispersion in understanding organic chemistry, both structure and reactivity, is truly coming into prominence (see for example this blog post for a compound whose stability is the result of dispersion). This has been driven in part by new computational...
