Garst, Michael E.; Gribble, Gordon W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v61 n9 p819 Sep 1984
Describes a series of experiments (requiring six hours/week for six to eight weeks) involving the synthesis and methanolysis of substituted benzyl tosylates. The experiments provide students with experiences in kinetic data manipulation and an introduction and firm basis for structure-activity relationships and solvent effects in organic chemistry. (JN)
