Reed, Nicole A.; Rapp, Robert D.; Hamann, Christian S.; Artz, Pamela G.
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n7 p1053-1054 Jul 2005
Dess-Martin periodinane oxidation is an experiment that provides an avenue to the introduction of Circular Dichroism (CD) spectroscopy in organic chemistry curriculum as a diagnostic tool for examination of the results of a familiar reaction, and absolute configuration. From the experiment, students increased their understanding of CD theory and practice and assignment of Absolute Stereochemistry.
