Using Building-Block Puzzles to Practice Drawing Organic Mechanisms
Erdik, Ender
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n9 p1325-1326 Sep 2005
A study uses a thought-provoking, pencil-and-paper activity to aid students in writing organic reaction mechanisms. Organic and functional groups that constitute the formulas of organic and inorganic reactants, ionic intermediates, and products are presented as building blocks, which must be placed correctly in a given puzzle so that they bind properly to form the right formulas.
